Browning SA-22 Grade 1 "Out of Stock"



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm seriously thinking about buying a new Browning SA-22 in Grade 1. They seem to be OOS at the major retailers - CDNN, GrabaGun, Brownell's , etc..

Anybody know why? From you guys experience, do these go out of stock on a somewhat regular basis?

Just wondering about it. I see them on the auction sites, but it justs seems curious that the major sellers would not have them.

Thanks,
Dave

I was just about to go to my LGS and sell my SA-22. Only shot once. Turns out, my petite girlfriends arms are too short and with the length of pull, the ejected brass keeps hitting her on the inner forearm and burning her arm. Also, we are both lefties and loading and applying the safety makes it a bit difficult. We thought it would be more left friendly because of the bottom eject. We know we could order a LH trigger group for it, but it's $75 plus gunsmith install. We bought a Browning BL-22 Micro Midas and it's perfect for us.
What is unique about this one is, being a grade 1, the stock is satin and not that bowling pin finish that scratches and shows dings easily. Either it was a limited run or a special order that was cancelled and never picked up from Bass Pro where we bought it. I looked up the stock/parts and the satin stock & fore end were expensive parts to purchase from Browning, but was standard on their now discontinued grades 2 & 3.
I thought about listing it in the FS section instead of the LGS rip off buy.
I'll have to get some pictures up.

CDNN is mostly a close out specialist. Brownells is a parts supplier.
Check Bud's or Davidson's gun genie.

Update: I checked Davidson's. OOS
We may have seen the last of this model.
My LGS, who runs a very busy shop and is a Browning dealer,hasn't stocked one in ages.They don't sell. Buyers want the cheaper stuff.

I would suggest you buy a used one , they are plentiful and can be found in very good condition.
Its a specialty product at this point, limited interest from the consumer.
There are tons of used SA22 .
Hundreds of thousands .

Here is a current used price list.
I printed it out, as well and used up all my magenta ink to bring if I go that route to my LGS.

Been back in it's box after one visit to the range.
We brought Rem Gold HV 36's, CCI MM HV both 36 & 40's & WIN HV's both 36 & 40's and all functioned wonderfully. Maybe two tubes per samples.
Cleaned it up and back in the oiled plastic.
I'm going to post it in the FS section. Once I get some better pics of it.

If we get $400 cleared after shipping & insurance to an FFL, we'd be happy. It would cover a good amount of the BL-22 that has been perfect for us. The Micro Midas is great for her and I just slip on a 1" thick leather butt extender for my extra pull. Easy on, easy off.
Looking back at the Bass Pro receipt, the original price was around $650 with tax.
It's a Miroku grade I with the satin/oiled walnut. Nice grain patterns, too. The other sides of the wood are even nicer.
Got to get a better camera to post in the FS section. She has a much better camera.

Yep, I do believe you're right. I like the rifle, but the only reason for buying one is that during my hunting childhood, my beloved uncle, who died last December, had and used one on our many hunting trips back then. I just want one to have, to pull out of the safe occasionally to remind me of him, and to shoot once in a while.

My favorite uncle, still living thank goodness in his 70's had a Belgium. He couldn't keep a scope zeroed. But, in those days neither of new a good scope from a crummy one.

I bought a new one at Cabelas this past winter. Haven't shot it much. It has the gloss finish. I like the satin here much better. I put a tiny surface blemish on this rifle before I even shot it! I had it in my Tippitt vice putting a ring base on it. I hadn't removed a couple of screw drivers on the end of the vice. Turned the gun over and there was my mistake. My son couldn't notice it but I did. The safe and bench are far riskier to my firearms than my trips to the woods!

Wow, $400 is a heck of a friendly price! I got the deal at Cabelas but still cost more than $100 more than this PLUS tax!

I agree Camster. I'll take any of them at the price that chart shows, except the grade 1 jap rifle. I think it must be way out of date.
