You nailed it. That is what I actually meant to say. The Browning is too small for my 6'5" and 255 lb body.Browning like a kids gun?! I just put my stock 10-22 on top of my Browning, and they appear to be basically identical in length of pull. Maybe the stock drop is not the same. The Browing is slimmer and trimmer, maybe that deceived you.
That is a great looking rifle. The Browning ATD, SA22 is one of the best 22 field rifles ever made.I love the little Browning. I have a belgian and a miroku. The jap model is a .22 short. Bought a Japanese L/R for my 6'8" left handed son and he's got no problem shooting it. I also own way too many 10/22's including an HM2 conversion. For ease of carry and class in the squirrel woods I like the Browning a lot. It's not as accurate as my Kidd bbl'd and triggered 10/22 but I just don't seem to miss much with it.
