I have a Browning Semi Automatic .22 Long Rifle that was made in Belgium. There is no serial number so I know it was made prior to 1968. It is of the take-down style. On the barrel, under the forearm are Belgian arsenal "proof marks". The barrel length is 19.25 inches and the tubular magazine holds 11 rounds which are loaded through a hole in the right hand side of the stock. The rear sight is of the early type, placing the manufacture date some where between 1956-1960. It is in almost perfect mint condition. I'm just curious as to the value of the gun or what I might expect to get paid if I was to choose to sell it. Thanks for any help, OSUMike71

Mike,

Do you know what grade it is? Grade I value in 95% should be around $600. If by early sight you mean the wheel sight, add about 30% for that (less if you rifle is in less than 95% condition).

Here is a pic of a Belgium made grade I:

Yes I was meaning the wheel sight, and yes I do believe it is easily grade 1 value. I'll try to post some pics of it.

I have it in Grade 3 beautifully engraved and mint shape
Have seen it at Canadian Gun shows for $3000 and maybe as high as $4000. Almost to nice to shoot but very accurate

Mike, Maybe I can give you a bit of information about your browning 22. In the early models of that rifle, it was made by Remington, with the loading from the stock. I have one an have used it many, many years. When Remington was producing it was the Model 24. I can`t say Browning is making or made a better rifle after they bought the patent from Remington because I am 75 years old an will match shoot mine any day against a Browning.. My eyes are getting older now but have shot an lost or won many quarters (25 cent pieces) at 75 yards, when .22 ammo was .17-.23-5 cents a box. Browning just upgraded a Remington by putting their name on it, they didn`t raise the quality, it was an is still a fine shooter regardless of the name on it.
