Weetabix wants a Browning Sa-22. Since we're looking at grail guns, let's look at the SA-22 Grade VI. This one is still available new and in the top grade, it's at the pinnacle of what you can do with a .22 rifle, high gloss wood, beautiful bluing, and gold inlay in the engraving.
It is a rifle with a history, too. It was designed by JMB himself and the current design is based on a patent issued in 1914. It's semi-auto, uses a bottom eject design, so there's no brass or gas in the face of a left handed shooter, and it's a takedown design, coming apart essentially like a shotgun.
Weetabix wanted an old one, though, so here's a work of art, built in 1959 and engraved by Angelo Bee. Absolutely beautiful, from the grain in the wood to the details in the floral filigree work on the receiver.
It's available now for $6100. I 'd never considered a Browning SA-22, but the old ones sing the song that Weetabix is hearing, "You want me, you could do it, it's just another .22, you should buy me." I must resist the song...
Update: And I definitely need to stop looking at the ones for sale on Angelo Bee's website. Just stop.
