At the lgs they have a browning bar 22, beautiful stock, and a silverfish receiver with lots of engraving. $ 800 . Blue black barrel and hadware gold trigger.

What is this? Is it good? Is it accurate? Do I need to go back and buy it?

I guess it depends...
- How much of a Browning fan are you?
- What are your accuracy expectations?

Had a regular BAR22.
- It's minute-of-pop-can accurate
- It was reliable
- Built quality top-notch.
- Steel (earlier model) and walnut contruction

I thought they were a good buy back when they could be found for $200-$300...

At $800, well, if you're really into Brownings and need to have one...

I gave $400 a few years ago for a standard (Grade I) in 95% plus condition. You don't see those very often and the price seemed reasonable.

The one you're looking at is a Grade II and personally I think $800 (assuming unmolested 95% plus condition) is a steal.

Do you have $800 for nice collector's piece? It'll be too pretty to shoot much and as Mike says, it's still just a plinker not a bench gun.

It's a Grade II.

Don't know your level of Browning knowledge, but is it a BAR 22 or auto 22?
Occasionally the first label gets applied to the second gun.

Good point Camster. Here's a BAR-22 Grade II. A relatively rare gun or at least I've never seen one in the wild.

A pretty and fairly rare gun.
If the condition is right,some Browning guys are willing to pay up for them,far beyond 800.
As a shooter, I don't think that they're known for great accuracy.Some develop mechanical issues,where finding parts could be a problem.

a real pretty rifle that one is! you would not want to shoot anything but paper targets and a occasional squirrel in a clean wooded lot with that one. The english straight stock is really a plus , I have a grade one with the pistol grip stock they seem to bring a constant 5-6 hundred dollars for a nice one. You do not see a grade II very often. 800 dollars for grade II would be a good deal to me. buy it!
