Description Technical Info

Browning BL-22 Grade 1 - 22 S-L-LR - All the features, fast:

The 22 lever action that the big boys aspire to. 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 fast and features, the highlight of the Grade I BL-22 is the short 33 degree 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. The magazine tube, once loaded, locks securely in place. The BL-22 features quality muzzle to butt that rivals other Browning firearms.

From the machined steel receiver to the fit of the finely finished wood, these superb rifles are Browning 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.

22 LR

Low cost, minimal recoil, and relatively low noise make the .22 LR an ideal cartridge for recreational shooting, initial firearms training, small-game hunting, and pest control. Used by Boy Scouts in the United States for the rifle shooting merit badge, the cartridge is popular among novice shooters and experts alike. The rimfire round is commonly packaged in boxes of 50 or 100 rounds, and is often sold by the brick, a carton containing either 10 boxes of 50 rounds or loose cartridges totalling 500 rounds, or the case containing 10 bricks totalling 5,000 rounds. 22 LR ammunition is among the least costly cartridge ammunition available. A wide variety of rimfire ammunition is available commercially, and the available ammunition varies widely both in price and performance.

Suggested Use

  • Predators
  • Small Game
  • Varmint
  • Target


Bullet weights among commercially available ammunition range from 20 to 60 grains (1.3 to 3.9 g), and velocities vary from 575 to 1,750 fts (175 to 533 ms). Promotional loads for plinking can be purchased in bulk for significantly less cost than precision target rounds. The low cost of ammunition has a substantial effect on the popularity of the .22 LR. For this reason, rimfire cartridges are commonly used for target practice.
