BL-22 Goodness

Log in to see fewer ads
Last spring I sold my older Grade II. It was nice, but a bit fancy, what I really wanted was a Grade I. Finally got another one yesterday, this one was made in 1990.
A few dents in one side of the stock near the buttplate, and some of the finish peeling off the barrel band near the muzzle, but great shape otherwise.

I probably would have got another BL-22 sooner, but I bought several guns this summer. A Smith 686, Ruger MK IV Lite, Ruger Flattop .45, a Rossi Trapper carbine in .45, a Remington 552 and a Nylon 66, a Winchester 9422 and a restored Winchester 1906.

But I'm glad I have a BL again. I took it and the Nylon 66 out today to test some loads. I had a Skinner sight waiting for this BL-22 and put it on this morning.
I also had a .530" tall Firesight for the front, but didn't want to put it on until after the ammo testing.
Even though I knew the rig would shoot way high, I wanted to use the factory bead sight as it is smaller and I thought I'd do better on the targets.

Mini-Mags, Golden Bullets and RWS Subsonic all shot well under an inch at 25 yards, and Winchester Hyper ( 40 grain @ 1435 fps.), RWS High Velocity, Winchester M-22 and Remington CBee LR shot from 1 inch to 1 1/2".
I have a lot of the ones it did best with, so now I'll put the tall front sight on.
The Firesight bead is really fat though, I'll see how the .530" sight does elevation wise next time I go out, and then order the correct height front in a small brass bead.
