Default Browning BL22, Should I

I have an opportunity to pick up a Browning BL22 for $300.00. It is pristine,with the box it came in, been less than 20 rnds fired. My main questionis how accurate are they known to be? Having four 22s already, I'm really not in need of another unless it is an exceptional shooter. $300.00 would go a long way toward putting quality glass on my model 12 Savage
22-250. Money is a factor but I have this weakness when it comes to guns.

That is a hell of a price! I would buy it. If $ for another rifle is the deal, sell it for $400.00. Retail on a II grade is $600.00. I have a BLR in .308. Wonderful rifles!

Default Bl22

Just got it and thought I would offer it to you as you showed an interest in it a while back. PM me if interested. It looks way better than the pics.

That's a beauty! If I wasn't so impoverished, I'd buy it if I could.

Actually I am looking at a Stevens 200, 308 for $339 and thats what I'm asking + Shipping. I am willing to trade. It makes my other guns look kind of knarley (it's too pretty). I have 5 other 22s that I don't have to worry about dinging or scuffing. But this is too pretty to take out shooting. Dont get me wrong, I take real good care of my firearms but stuff happens.

If you sell it now you may have sellers remorse later. Wait and see how good it shoots before you sell it.

Default sellers remorse

I'm absolutely positive I would have sellers remorse. I have never sold a gun that I didn't have it. I've only ever sold 4 and they were project guns that I bought to fix and sell. I am afraid if I shoot it I won't want to sell it. I know the Stevens is nothing fancy but when I handled it I really liked the feel, Probably because all the cf rifles I have are heavy milsurp of some sort and with my arthritis mainly in my hands I can hardly lift them. I love each and every one of them and will continue to shoot them every chance I get but it was love at first sight. Can you tell me about the trigger on the Stevens? It's not an acutrigger. Am I safe in assuming The Stevens guns are as accurate as the Savages?
