Is your SA-22 trigger good ?

Mine is great.
Almost like a two stage. Breaks really nice and crisp..
No gritty feeling anywhere.
Just one heck of a good quality Rifle.

Mine is great......just need to keep mine clean.....they do get dirty....
Mine measures 2.5 lbs. However, mine was made in 1977.....it’s had plenty of time to “ Break in”......I use a Leupold 4x rimfire special....it’s perfict .....! Mine really likes CCI Standard velocity.....mine will also cycle CCI Quiets.....the quiets are not very accurate in my rifle.

All the SA-22s that I shoot are made in Belgium and the triggers are excellent. Keep in mind, these rifle are “field” guns and the triggers are appropriate for field use.

. I'm wondering why you would add that ?
"Field guns"
Mine on the bench shoots as good as my custom heavy barrel Rugers.
I'm impressed with it's accuracy.

I understand what your saying is that they're great in the field..
But that's not all they do well.
Heck ?
The SA-22 does just about everything very well.

None of my SA-22s have triggers as good as a Kidd two stage.
None of my SA-22s will be adjusted down to the ounces of pull.

To be fair, the SA-22 was designed as a field rifle. In my opinion, they are the best semi auto 22 filed rifle ever made. They aren’t the best target rifle, benchrest rifle, etc. I can defend my statement that I have made many times. They are the best semi auto 22 field rifle ever made. Their trigger matches their field use.
My first SA-22 is my favorite, most sentimental 22 rifle I own.

We have had a half dozen of these guns, vintage 60s right on up to a new gun purchased end of last year. Everyone I've owned came with a beautiful crisp trigger. Our new 2018 had a fairly heavy trigger, out of the box, compared to our used ones, but it's already smoothed up, nicely with use. Accuracy on each and very one has been excellent. No doubt in my mind that the SA 22 is the finest semi-auto 22 field rifle ever made. My only regret is that I waited so long to get one.

Well, it would be if Browning would only put some sling swivels on it!

Seems there is many like us..?
Wondering ? Why did we wait so long ?
What bugs me the most is... I was shooting my uncle Thurman's Belgium .22 shorts ..long long ago..
Loved it. ...so why didn't I run out and buy one then ?
Guess life got in the way I suppose..
And now ? Here we are.
Very happy to have them now.

I had the recent experience to shoot one for the first time in my 56 years. I’m trying to think now what I have in trading material that I could go trade for one now. I agree in my limited experience with one, they are a sweet rifle.

Yes.. once you've had that experience..
The SA 22.. just sticks in your mind
You never forget it.
And you know, deep down.in your heart. you'll buy one someday.
I love mine. As posted- kinda mad at myself..
That I didn't buy one years ago.

The SA-22 is an elegant, sleek, lightweight, well designed, takedown 22 rifle that is perfect for field use. The simple design is as perfect as they come. The way the trigger housing and bolt comes out is ingenious. This is one of John Browning’s masterpieces. Well over 100 years since the basic design came out and they are still being produced with high quality. The days of the hand engraving is over, but the beautiful rifle is still going strong.

Blasphemy. Takedowns,this little gal in particular, shouldn't have swivels.
The only exception being a Marlin 39.

Never had a complaint regarding the trigger on my '68 ATD, and I've owned plenty of high end sporters where it was about a the pull.
For a little automatic, it's not bad at all.
I breifly owned a Winchester repro 63. The pull was horrible-like a cheap old cap gun.

Sling swivels on SA22

I am calling BS on not having sling swivels... I have swivels on both my SA22s and all my long guns rifles and shotguns. To each his own if you want to not have swivels fine. but don't degrade the chaps who prefer them.
