Browning understands that the future of the shooting sports depends on getting new shooters started right with good equipment and the proper training. For more than 130 years the National Rifle Association has been conducting programs that teach young shooters firearms safety, marksmanship and hunting skills. In recognition of the NRA’s service to America’s shooters, Browning is proud to offer a special BL-22 NRA Model that is perfect for introducing new shooters to the sport. Part of the proceeds from the sale of this rifle go to supporting the NRA’s Youth Hunter Education Challenge. Since its inception in 1985, YHEC has reached more than one million young sportsmen and women.
The Browning BL-22 is in a class by itself. Sure, there are other lever-action 22 rimfire rifles available, but no other has the features, reliability, quality and accuracy of the BL-22. Speaking of features, the highlight of the BL-22 is the short 33° lever throw that makes cycling faster for adults and easier for younger shooters. The easy to load tubular magazine holds any combination of 22 short, long and long rifle ammunition, all of which are on the menu for the BL-22. Unlike some 22’s the BL-22 features quality that rivals other Browning firearms. From the machined steel receiver to the fit of the finely finished wood, these superb rifles are Browning’s through and through. Bring one along the next time you head into the field on a varmint hunt or just to roll a few tin cans.
