They also show a 10 round capacity on the .22 Shorts, think it will hold a couple more.

Emailed Browning, here is their reply...

Brad, thanks for your email. We defiantly have no plans to discontinue the SA22. I contacted our product manager and he said its still going strong. Thanks. br

He also said the ATD was now a slow seller for him.In any case, I see it as a a disservice to their dealer network to blow these guns out so far under retail.

The short model has a 22" barrel btw)

The Short models are not cataloged per my LGS yesterday, won't guarantee the accuracy of that but he did call, so do I buy a sight unseen Maple Short? I've seen gorgeous wood and I've seen plain as a post Maple on these, decisions, decisions.

I suppose that you can ask,but I would think that you just get the next box on the shelf.That's pretty much how it works at most places.Just so much cherry picking that they will do or not do at all. I do agree-I've seen nice maple and not so nice.I would probably go with walnut as being a safer bet.
Years ago, I think that I got lucky with one of the Grade II shorts that CDNN was offering.. A very pretty gun for 700.It's no longer here,it was never fired,but I was pleased with it...and as many of you know, I'm fussy.

Cheap SA-22s

There are those who want a great classic firearm but don't want to spend the "big bucks" to pay for an older, better model.
For example, my family has a Grade I Belgian Browning SA-22 (2T-series--LR chamber) built in 1962 with the light shade figured stock--often referred to as the "Belgian blondies".
It is in beautiful condition with no appreciable damage to the stock or metal. Blueing is immaculate. Functions perfectly and has been meticulously maintained all these years.
We made the decision to sell it so I took it to one of the largest gun shows in the area. I was 'overwhelmed' by potential buyers as soon as I took it out of its carry case and assembled it, but, for some reason, they wereall 'turned off" by my $900 asking price. Some were so bold as to offer me "Norinco" prices for it.
For a "55-year old blond that doesn't look a day older than 20"?
"Yer pays yer monies and takes yer cherce (choice)."
Rusty Musket
(It's still available if anyone is interested in adding it to their collection!)

My first SA was a light colored walnut Belgium. They really were almost as light as a Maple.

I would be afraid to order a Maple stocked SA sight unseen

I would guess odds of getting a spectacular Maple stock is better than 10-1.

Walking a nice Belgian 22 at a gun show and expecting dealer retail? Not likely. The wrong venue for sure.Too many bargain hunters,scroungers,sight seers,not to mention the vast majority of folks that think any rimfire should only command a few hundred.
I'm into the Belgians myself,and still have my first blonde acquired in 1968.
I have doubts that this website is the right place to offer one over 600. THE PLACE seems to be GI.More of the right stuff on there than any other website. I don't know if they're selling however.Like a lot of things,nice classic guns appeal to an older set of folks.Many of us are in non acquisition mode or downsizing mode.I've even considered selling mine(except the 68,which was a birthday present),but I hate to break the set.

Okay, this is nuts.
CDNN lowered the 22LR SA22 to $399.99 after rebate.
I think I will order one this weekend to go with my 22 Short SA22.

Got a question: why is the 22 short version so popular?
I'm just about to buy an SA-22 from CDNN so want to decide which caliber to get.
