"Bar" 22



Log in to see fewer ads
I was looking at one of these a couple of days ago, tube fed under the barrel. It was VG-EX in condition. What are these worth ? Are they good shooters ? Reliable ? I liked the way it felt, it had good heft to it.
If anyone has any hands on knowledge of these rifles it would greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Ross

The ones I've been able to get my mitts on have always been fine, but I have seen post to the contrary, from some users.
They usually sell for about $350US in that condition , in my area.
If you decide to get it, and hunt it, slinging it is easy with an Uncle Mike's mag tube clamp Q.D. swivel base & something for the butt - either a screw-in eye or a lace-on strap.
Scoping's EZ, too - just don't have it D/T'd, like someone did on one I espied.

I have one of the BAR 22s and I like it. It points well and I enjoy shooting it. The only problem I've ever had with it is that it will occationally have a problem feeding. But thanks to another poster on this board I was able to fix that pretty easily and now it works well. I'm not sure what they'd cost new since I got mine from my father.

I had one briefly a little over 20 years ago. I loved the way it looked, felt, everything about it, except function. Mine jammed and failed to feed so frequently, it was a constant frustration. I so wanted that rifle to shoot, but I simply couldn't get through a full magazine without at least 1 malfunction. I honestly don't know whether or not it was capable of good accuracy, because I was always clearing jams. FWIW, my brother got one at the same time, and if anything, his malfunctioned more often than mine! A pity, as I thought they were nice looking, well-finished, sleek little rifles.

I have the straight grip model and have had no problems with function. Not a target gun but shoots quite well for a semi. Paid $300 CDN 2 years ago.

Bar 22

I didn't even know Browning made a BAR 22. Could someone post a pic of the rifle?
