New SA-22: Spare parts cache needed?
 
A new Japanese SA-22 is on its way and I'm wondering if it's wise to collect some spare parts for it to keep in reserve. I'm old enough to know that I probably won't have the rifle more than five years, but may shoot it often during that time, maybe 500 22LR rounds per week. I'm pretty good at keeping guns clean and lubed, but I don't have good access to a gunsmith for correcting minor problems. Should I get some spare parts, like cartridge stop, guide, springs, firing pin, etc. ??? Even when I'm ready to part with the little rifle, I wouldn't want to pass it on with any issues. Are there some parts prone to failure? Thanks! :) ---KoOk

MGW SA-22 spare parts kit
 
MGW has it listed at $59.00 but currently out of stock.

For some guns,I've felt the desire to stash away a few things.The ATD is not one of them.Granted,it hasn't seen that much use,but in 49 years, I haven't replaced a thing.I wouldn't worry about it. If you should need something one day,just order it from Browning.

Mine has held up pretty good. It's a '72, and as far as i know all the parts are original. I've had it 5 years now. The only extra parts i have bought are the 2 springs and 2 detentes for the barrel adjustment mechanism. Not because they they break, but because i'm a idiot and when i 1st got my gun i decided to take the adjust parts apart and almost lost them. Since then i've up and leave it alone.:)

Nope
 
I fell in love with a 1965 Belgian. Bought all new internals hoping to keep it running forever but after a full takedown and degrease, all the original parts looked great so I kept using them. That was 5 years and about 3K rounds ago

Please post the link. I can't find it. Thanks.

Found it. Surprised that the extractor is not included.

Thanks to you all. I'll keep the MGW and other part source info, but I think I'll forego getting parts until if/when I need them. :)

I had forgotten about this thread, but last night I began thinking about spare parts once again for my SA22. Never know when semi-auto parts will be hard to find.

Seems to me parts needed are-
-extractor
-extractor cross pin and spring (I nearly lost my pin awhile back!)
-assortment of necessary springs - TBD
-firing pin

There must be more. What did I miss?

Also, I believe most of these parts are cross compatible with the LR and Short models of the rifle.

I used to indulge into that keep it going forever/spare parts back up notion with several guns that I've owned. Never used any of them and eventually sold them off.
Fact is, any parts finding problem will belong to some far in the future owner. At 66, I'm well aware of my mortality. I'm not going to run forever.
If you do feel that you need spares, I'd add the little parts related to barrel lock up.

I'm no spring chicken either. The only wear I see on my SA22 rifles is on the extractor. Usually I have to replace parts I loose, not that I wear out (unfortunately).:)

Hence my suggestion for the barrel lock up parts! I've had them go flying.Also bought a gun once in which they were missing.I reckon the former owner had them disappear.

MGWs seems to have a decent kit.

I wonder what those parts would cost directly from Browning?

I bought my first SA-22, a used Belgium model, in 1976. Iíve never had to replace any part on it. I probably should buy a new recoil spring, but it still works fine.

I should probably buy a new recoil spring for mine, received new in 1968.
It's always worked fine.Doubtful that I'll shoot it again, so I'm not worrying about it.
