SA22 questions



Log in to see fewer ads
Been out of the gun buying load for about 5 years but now have the bug for a SA22. I really like the maple. Are they hard to find new since Browning no longer makes them? What shall I expect to pay for one?

Last question. ......are they difficult to break down and clean? I have about 7 22 rifles and tend to shoot the easy clean ones more.

Yes, very easy to break down and clean.
The price will be at whatever sellers want for them on GB,GI,etc. at any particular time.
Generally the same as walnut versions.

the hardest part on cleaning the sa22 is reinstalling the recoil spring along with the firing pin spring at the same time.do yourself a favour and do it in a small room so that when the parts fly off they will be easier to recover.

Sometimes people do the rebuild in a clear plastic bag

Just bought one recently, no problem ordering one through my local shop, no problems taking it apart - and I definitely am not mechanically gifted. I like that it's not too hefty, yet has a solid feel in the hands.

Hyar it is, with an early 1920's Remington 24 relative:

Unless some drastic has happened to the firing pin spring or recoil spring, there is no reason to remove either one during a routine cleaning. Powder Blaster or similar will clean all the nooks and crannies. A blast of air to blow residue and dry the area followed by a light lube of your choice and you can replace the action and put it back together. I have both the Remington Mdl 24 and the Browning ATD wheel sight (1959) and they are the finest semiautos ever made.

I have retired my Mdl 24. It was made in 1925 and was used by my grandfather, who probably bought it new, my father and then me. I retired it in 1955. High velocity ammo was causing problems and standard velocity was a little hard to get. I bought a Win Mdl 62 and used that until I got my ATD in 1960.

The ATD will be the finest little rifle to ever grace your hands.

For a new topic, better to start a new thread.
