Did this video help you?

david ervin: It's LR only. Remington made a copy that's available in 22shot. With 22 short CB caps the Remington is virtually silent. My Browning won't feed 22LR CB caps. After the Browning sent a hot casing down the open sleeve of my Dad's coat he chose another gun. The barrel nut is to set tightness of the barrel threads and can only be turned with the barrel unlocked from the receiver. It's possible to set the threads so tight you cannot remove the barrel. Great backpacking gun.

PeterDad60: Poor, poor me. I have the same rifle. However it was made by Norinco in China. Imported by INTERARMS ALEX. VA. Model .22 A.T.D. The differences are that the engraving on the receiver is not as fancy, thr rear sight is the same except is does not fold down and mine will not load .22 shorts. It is exactly the same in all other respects. The bluing on the barrel is exceptional and the wood is nice but it has a very thick coating of clear urathane. Poor me, mine probably is not worth $700. No matter as I was never planning on selling it since it is such an accurate rifle and it's the only .22 semi auto repeater that I have. So I'll be content with shooting her.

marcus Austdal: i actually got 2 belgian ones, that i got from my grandpa never tought they were collectables.

cplrey: I've got one of these that my dad bought me back in the 50's. I have no idea what the value is but its time to let it go as there is no one to pass it on to. 

tlfort: I have 3.....and love them all!

Why do you want my name: I have one of these. They are great rifles but I don't shoot it as much as I'd like to.

Gerald West: I love mine, its an older one made in Belgium with a beginning SN# 70T...does this mean 1970? Thanks for an informative Video, sootch00.

Austin Neal: Anyone know where i can find that exact replacement stock? Cant find one anywhere mine split...

Coby Rascal: To those who own one; be very careful when taking the rifle apart. Always grab and twist by the receiver, not the buttstock. It is very easy to split the wood if the stock is twisted and the barrel is in tight. I have two of them, and fortunately, I learned from a video not to twist on the stock. Lots of broken ones out there (which of course make ours more valuable). Great guns and thanks for the video, Sootch.

Floyd Teter: I have a Belgian model that my father passed down to me. Probably the best-made rifle I own. I'll be passing it on to one of my sons :)

BeoZard: A buddy of mine took his 1959 Grade III to pawn shop to see what he could trade for it. The guy at the pawn shop told him he could have any gun there for it. My buddy decided to keep it. 

Michael Fraembs: Hey Sootch00, my grandfather passed this gun down to me when I was about 10 and is still in great shape. After watching your review I check my rifle and found that it is Belgium produced! Any idea where I can find more info on this gun? I had a feeling it was collectable so I very rarely shoot the thing. Thanks for the Help!

Remote Viewer 1: What a beautiful, beautiful gun. 100 years old design! Wow. Love it love it love it. This is my next gun. Like the workmanship, plus that design. Great review man.

David Schmidt: Great video and thanks for the info!

Doubletap: I had my grandfathers Belgium made SA-22, it is stolen from my house. :( BEST 22 EVER!

Brett Brown: My grandpa has one that my great grandpa bought in 1962 from Sears. I actually shot it today at the shooting range.

sysjls75: A great iconic .22 rifle.

Chris Klimosko: Is it easy enough to load a single bullet in the chamber, or do you have to take the tube apart every time?

darrowood75: Hey Sootch00. I enjoy your style of video and have been watching you for a while. I recently lucked up and got a gem and watched your video on the Browning sa-22. The one I recently got is an original Belgium would like to know what you would value it. It only has minimum light rust. That should easily clean up. 

Orwell 1984 = OhWell 2014: Best 22 ever made. 1. Just be careful with loose long sleeves, when you get a shell down your sleeve you know it :) 2. You shouldn't have to turn the knurled nut on the base of the barrel to separate the halves, only the switch on the bottom, then pull the bolt thing back and twist;.

C Kim: Nothing like an older 22! This and the BL 22 are as good as it gets! My BL 22 is Made in Japan but is a real quality shooter. Thanks for the video.

ken Woods: where can i get parts for my 22rifle i have a very old one and need the parts to holt it together under the barrel i think there should be a spring with other partr

Dave k: Look at the 2014 Anniversary model on the Browning website. It is beautiful and only 100 will be made. It will be a collectors item. 

David River: The best rifle for rabbits under foot (kicking the fenceline) I'm taking mines " with me " LOL

C172Pilotdude: $600 ?!?!? WAY overpriced.

mysdak: My dad just gave me his 1964 model. Always loved this gun. He mentioned that he was selling off some of his firearms a few weeks ago. I told him that I always liked this semi-auto 22 and he gave it to me today. Can't wait to shoot it with my son.

Bouncy sun: i just want to say thanks, i know nothing about fire arms of any kind but my dad has been asking me for the magazine tube ( i thinks thats what its called) for the past year and i had no idea what it looked like or what i was looking for since he doesnt know what its called in english, thanks to your video now i know exactly what it is he needs

John Wayne: Saw one today so I decided to Google it to see what I could find out about it. It was beautiful and it was selling for $750.00 bucks. It was in fantastic shape! Beautiful wood and beautiful bluing. Too bad I put a Winchester 9422 XTR level action on layaway. 1990 vintage, gorgeous wood and outstanding bluing and also came with a pretty nice scope under $400 bucks. I got a steal of a deal.

mark roge: My dad had a Belgium, I learned to shoot with it, never once did it jam.

Ruger Guy: during remingtons production of this rifle, they were very popular as gallery guns for carnivals and were manufactured with a metal loop underneath the barrel so that the game operator could teather all the rifles together

Megzamani: Got one today. Year made 1992 Thanks for the review

blackforest270: I wonder what suprise Browning will have for us in 2014,with the 100 year anniversery model?

journeyquest1: My dad gave me one as a kid in the early 70s. My mom gave it away because she didnt like guns. Pissed off.

Mickey-Bill: I have a Browning 22 Semi-Automatic SA 22, Belgium made that I bought new about 1970 + or - . It is a great shouting gun and a great squirrel rifle. My only complaint is about a year after I bought it, the barrel started rusting under the forearm ( I keep my gun clean and oiled ) When I called Browning about it I was told it was caused by the wood of the forearm being treated with salt. They refused to make it good. So much for Browning, I haven't been able to stop the rusting and have even tried the insulate the forearm from the barrel. About a week after I bought the SA 22 , I also bought a Browning Belgium made Trombone 22 cal. pump it's perfect. All I can say is I wish it was handled better by Browning. 

Choon Wah Yee: Is fun,is cute,is japan.

chevy way: nice gun i have the older model that you load up top on the stock

Uzeil21: i have a Belgium as well, lovely gun

Ronald Healy: I have a BAR 22Lr. and I have a Henry AR-7 I think booth are vary accurate and with the CCI hunting they are not bad. But I think you need more in a survival situation

k31rifleman: no uou have to get a version for shorts only

1995mrpalmer: and they porb have no reason to clean them why would u if its gona be beat around in the swap as long as it fires its ok with thim lol.

ahamay79: I have my dad's Belgian made 1964 22LR Semi-Auto. It's the first gun I ever shot as a kid. As a matter of fact I just finished cleaning it. :-)

Vapor Trails: good looking rifle

John S: Bet the Belgium models will go for over $1000 now

CaveTater: What would be a good pocket carry pistol?

Dustin Parker: Great video...I own a SA22 but it only shoots shorts. Do you know if it can be modified to shoot longs?

Shantra Mulani: yes, get 2 people to pull on the gun from both ends and stretch it LOL

Bhaltazhar: I will add one of these to my collections.

Johnny G: Do the Japan browning have serial numbers to find out how old it is. And also my barrel lock on my browning 22 is stuck on lock should I take it to get repaired or what should I do. Thanks.

Kurt: Wow. Very nice rifle, and nice finish on the rifle. Good video Don. Thumbs up. :-)

Christopher King: Love the vid. Is your pal's smoker also a 250 right? Fun times. I love hearing yours up close and then the rip crap buzz of his bike signing on every now and then. The immediacy of a two stroke is just so amazing.
HarmonicEnergy: For your situation I would've used the lightest ash hair dye and apply first to your roots then apply last to your length and ends. Using ash tones cancel out brass, but make sure to keep an eye on the pre-lightened parts of your hair. Processing the roots first gives time for it to lift, while applying the dye to the ends around the last 10 minutes of processing will refresh your colored hair. Usually you wouldn't need to tone your hair after using ash, but if you still needed too, just use the 10 volume. This would only deposit tone and not lift the hair any further.
