Good comrades of Norinco make .22 takedown rifle cheap of cost so workers can afford. No longer at mercy of greedy Belgian fascists. Unfortunately, Chairman Obama say not for you. But I may get one--good idea, no?

I will assume we will not see this gun in the States

I have one. Traded for it years ago, when Obama was just a community organizer.

It works pretty good. Kind of slow to load, but not too bad.

I say go for it.

It would be interesting to see if they still hand checker the stock.

That looks a lot like the norinco browning take down knockoff in my safe. Neener neener neener.

My Dad had one that I used quite a bit when I was a kid. I'd be all over one for $200 Loonies.

I shot many a squirrel with one. Accurate as can be but definitely not up to Browning quality.

Sarco was selling remnants of Interarm's delivery of these a few months back, IIRC at the same price ~ 200 US$
Link Posted: 12/8/2013 3:18:58 PM EST
About a year ago Sarco found some of these in their warehouse. I got the last one.



The fit and finish aren't nearly as good as a real Browning but it functions well with CCI Mini Mags or Federal 525 bulk pack. It doesn't like Federal Automatch or Winchester Super-X. It's a really nifty design and you can see why it's still in production after almost a century.

I have the Browning version. It is head and shoulders above any other .22 semi auto rifle I've ever handled. Sleek, light, fast handling. Smooth, accurate, and reliable. Love it. Superb rifle.

I do believe Browning .22LR auto are now made in Japan. Since the 70's.

They are. I have a NIB auto 22 1998 production made in Japan. I also have a 60's model that was made in Belgium.

OP, definitely get one.

dang I'd love one of those at that price.

Seriously, if the clone is anything like the original, it'll be one of the best handling, most natural aiming .22s on the market - but at $200 also get in at best priced.

If you do, You'll need a rubber band.


Put it around you sleeve on your forward hand, It'll keep red hot 22 brass from burning your forearm,
Trust me on this one

If you look around that website those frigging Canadians have bags of .22 ammo IN STOCK. A little pricey, but the prices are in those weird pink and blue dollars with pictures of princesses and beavers on them, so who really knows.

I have a JW15 bolt action and a JW20.
now if I can remember where they are, they aren't in the safe.

The Belgian ones truly are works of art.

Great blend of JMB genius and skilled workmanship.

Best shot of my life (total luck) was taken with one as a kid. Hit a blackbird on a wire 150+ yards away. With a 1.5 Weaver scope. Offhand.

Here's a .22 that comes with 5000 rounds of Federal ammo.

5000 rounds in the box

Even in Canada most 22LR is out of stock!

Good little 22s. They were imported to Estados Unidos for a while. I fixed one stock (it had been cracked and badly glued together by the original owner) and made some parts that were missing.

Be careful in taking it apart. Those spring and plungers are easy to lose.

Not to mention the takedown catch is razor sharp on everyone I've seen

Not quite news, these were imported into the US in the 90s before the Clinton Nork ban.

Sarco had these in stock a few months ago, dunno if they still have any.

Not trying to defend Obama, but it was another dumb liberal that put that policy in place.


Ironically, he was a friend of the Chinese.

I wish they made one in Belgium again. FN now has a SC facility. So, Doubtful on Browning doing it.

I've had one of the Norinco ATD .22s for several years, and its a great little rifle. I mounted a red dot on one of the extended barrel mounts, and its actually reasonably accurate. Fun little gon, and breaks down into a very compact package!
Link Posted: 12/8/2013 5:35:29 PM EST
I've got one of those sittin in the back of my safe. Won it at a pistol match, probably 15 years ago.

Maybe I should shoot it someday?

I had an original Browning one. I wasnt impressed with it as it tended to come loose pretty often.

I traded it for a CZ 452 Trainer and am MUCH happier. I will never sell my CZ

You can keep the JW-20 there Canuck. I had one and it was the worst knock-off Norinco ever produced. I've a couple of FN produced (pre-Browning) TDs and the Chi-Com version falls way short in every way.

Norinco did a fine job with the rest of their .22 knock-offs but the JW-20 sucks.

That was my first .22 and I must have shot 100 bricks through it. Loved it.
Still have it.
CDNN is selling a .22 short version but I can't find the ammo anywhere.

I think I would pass on the Norinco.

That is the truth. I replaced mine with a modified spring from an ink pen. Mine is definitely a shooter. I posted some groups up on page 5 of the MOA All Day challenge. true one hole groups for the first 3 shots at 25yds, the last 2 of each group wander a bit as the receiver tends to loosen from the barrel a little after a few shots. It still shoots minute of squirrel and eats anything I feed it.
Link Posted: 12/9/2013 4:05:28 AM EST
The Browning ones were awesome, I have not had a chance to try the Norinco ones, but I would say they are probably pretty decent. The chicom fit and finish has come along way in the last few years

how do you figure? of the 4 stores in town that sell ammunition, Walmart and Canadian Tire have over 50,000 round sof .22 on the shelf each, Our local sporting goods store has maybe 10,000 rounds on the shelf, the hardware store has 2000 on the shelf, who knows how much in back for any of those stores

Some of the hunting calibers are getting lean though

Works the same but not near the finish. I bought one for 99 dollars years ago at a gun show.

New brownings are 600- 700

for those of you who had trouble with the springs I got one of the brownings when I was 12 and shot brick after brick through it maybe 100 bricks over the years and never lost a spring. Note to those who do lose springs in a sa22 do not try to build an ar-15 lower.

I know that this is not a good idea but when we were kids we would put an empty 20 guage shell on the end of the barrel and shoot the sa 22. Then with the same gun we would shoot the 20 guage empty flying through the air. I loved shooting lemons oranges apples and other produce in the air with that gun. I grew up shooting at a city dump and we did a lot of produce shooting along with evrything else that comes to the dump. I wish I had my first target. It was a Lone Star case , they came with a target on the bottom My first shot was from a m1 carbine as it was the smallest gun my father had at the time.. I would not shoot up in the air today like we did then. I guess it is like shooting squirls with a 22 but knowing what I know now I would not shoot like that now.
