I have to admit that my initial thoughts on seeing a butt feed 22 was negative, that they couldn't be very reliable somehow. I don't know why I thought that way...just my first emotional response. Here I am, at 60 yrs of age, and just in the past few years being able to get back into enjoying a little bit of paper shooting ( with a few critter pests along the way), and being able to buy a gun once in a while. I spent most of my adult life raising two children as a single parent in a big city, so I am sorta starting over with the enjoyment of firearms...which explains kinda why seeing a butt fed 22 appeared different to me.
I had to sell my one & only Marlin 336 30-30 for bills, but I hope to rectify that soon.
Thanks again for all of the info & opinions....I may have to get a butt feed to add to my little, but hopefully growing, collection.
I love my Browning .22 Semi Autos. I have one scoped and one not. I personally consider them the perfect squirrel rifles.
They're very dependable, and easy to maintain.
I just bought a Browning SA-22 (semi-automatic).
They are very nice rifles, but a bit pricey.
I have been looking for a deal on one for about 2 years.
