Trigger pull weight

Yes there is, particularly when you have a trigger that is prone to a gritty feel anyway. I have felt a LOT of BL-22 triggers and just like other rifles, there are some that are better than others, even among the early rifles. Some of this is how much they have been "broken in", but some of it is simply that some triggers are just better than others. The later rifles that were affected by the lawyer demands are worse still, although I have had minimal experience with these. Generally a BL-22 made before about 1984 will have a decent trigger that will get better with use. There are exceptions to this as there are with nearly all rifles. on the earlier rifles most are good, some are not and some are very good indeed!

trigger wt. pull

My bl/22 wt. is 5lb. 10oz. very crisp on my rcbs trigger scale. ( spring type) manuf. 1989.
marlin 39d 5lb. 6 oz. stock with wolf spring reduced to 3lb. 10 oz. manuf. 1972. the marlins trigger is not as crisp though. there seems to be more sear contact but its nicer to shoot because the trigger release doesnt disturb the rifle as much as the bl/22.
I have to learn how to post pictures.
Pictures make the threads more interesting.

Penn, most people upload their pics to a pic hosting site such as Photobucket. Once you have them there, view your "library" and you can pass you cursor over a little emblem in the upper right of the pic and the option to "get links" will appear. Selecting that will make a menu of links appear....right click on "IMG Code" and paste that link in your post here where you want that pic to appear.

Photobucket used to be a lot simpler, but they make you jump through more hoops now.

4lbs. 2ozs. 1979 my dad bought it new for me for graduation. At that time they cost $160, the Marlin 39 cost $170, and the Winchester 1894 cost $150. I chose the BL-22 for its light weight and short lever throw. There are 20 some 22LR guns in the safe now, some that cost many times what the little Browning cost, but none that are of higher quality. I would like to be buried with my BL-22 and a brick of ammo, just in case I wind up in hell, so I can the shoot the horns off of satan.

1968 BL-22 on Gun Broker

GEEEEZ!

It seems like 20 people have e-mailed me about the 1968 BL-22 I have on GB asking if it is a Belgian made rifle. According to Browning, there were NO Belgian made BL-22's Production of the BL-22 rifles began at Miroku in Japan...even the prototypes!!! There were never any Belgian BL-22's!!!!

That is a common misconception since much of Browning's manufacturing went to Japan in 1975, long after the introduction of the BL-22.

Most folks think that all Browning 2000 shotguns were made in Japan, but some of the real early ones were made in Belgium.

This is true and I understand how people can come to believe this. Many people equate the BL-22 with the Browning SA-22 and the Browning T-Bolt. Many of these were made in Belgium of course and later production rifles were made by Miroku in Japan. Because of this people think that the same thing happened with the BL-22. I wish that it were true...I would love to have a Belgian made BL-22!!!
That would just wind my clock!

There is no doubt that it took Browning several years to make the transition for most of their production from Belgium to Japan. Most folks don't realize that Browning never ceased all of their SA-22 production from Belgium. The custom Grade II, and III (real hand engraved grade II and III) SA-22 rifles are still made in Belgium. Most of Brownings hand engraved high end firearms are still made in the FN Custom Shop in Liege.

I agree....lot's of confusion about the Belgian/non-Belgian made guns. My brother is a nut for shotguns and has more than a few of the old A-5 humpback shotguns. But he was unaware until I mentioned it the other day that some were actually made here in the United States.

The Remington model 11 was made here along with the Winchester 11 (?). The Winchester is an odd one with no charging (bolt) handle. The barrel is knurled.

Here's the data to date. The sample is VERY small and not well distributed over time. I wouldn't jump to any conclusions ...



Bottom line? We need more data!

Thanks!
Dave
