(July 2010) Semi-auto .22 Type Sporting rifle Place of origin  Belgium Production history Designer John Browning Manufacturer FN Herstal Produced 1914-present Specifications Weight 5.2 pounds (2.4 kg) Length 37 inches (94 cm) Barrel length 19.25 inches (489 mm) Cartridge .22 Long Rifle, .22 Short Action Semiautomatic Feed system Integral tube magazine (11x.22 LR; 16x.22 Short) The Browning 22 Semi-Auto rifle, also known as the Semi Automatic 22 or SA-22, is a takedown rifle produced by FN Herstal based on a John Browning patent. The rifle is currently produced by Browning as the Semi-Auto 22. Production began in 1914 and continued through 1974 in Belgium and production continued in 1976 in Japan by Miroku.[1] It was first exported by FN for the American market in 1956, but was manufactured in the US from 1919-1935 under license as the Remington Model 24. The SA-22 was the first production semiautomatic .22 rifle[2], and is regarded as a classic firearm.[2][3] It has been offered in several "grades" of engraving and gold inlay, and is a widely collected gun, especially those manufactured in Belgium.[4] The Semi-auto .22 is a made from blued steel and walnut, and ejects spent cases downward. This feature was intended by the designer to keep the user's face "protected from gasses and flying particles while firing". The lack of a side-mounted ejection port also leaves a large "canvas" for engraving.[2] Factory engraving was done by hand at FN Herstal, and is done by laser engraving with hand finishing at Miroku. It has occasionally been sold with a factory fitted hard case, or with scope mounting grooves on the receiver. Over half a million SA-22 rifles have been sold since 1914.[2] References ^ Browning Serial Numbers ^ a b c d Shideler, Dan. Gun Digest 64. Krause Publications, 2010. ^ House, James E.
