This one was made in Belgium but they were also made in Japan and still are as far as I know. Norinco made a copy too but I don't know if they still are or not. They are also takedown rifle so they can be packed in a small place.
my father still has the one he bought in 1968 or 1969. his is also marked Made In Belgium. sweet shooting rifles. when i was much younger before my father bought me my first 22 rifle, his Browning was my squirrel hunting rifle. with the little 4 powered scope that was on it, that rifle would bring the squirrels home! i had the opportunity a couple of years ago to put a new scope on it for my father, it still hadthe scope that dad put on it originally, but was getting a little foggy inside, and it was the first time in about 30 years since i had shot it lst. it was still dead on accurate.
