The video was uploaded by theKGB65 and features a 4-minute video about the Browning BL22 rifle.



It starts with a description of the rifle, a beautiful lever action BL22 that was made in 1996, according to the serial number which the uploaded checked on the Browning website. It holds 15 long rifle ammo and the metal receiver on his BL22 features intricate engraving.

In the video he says that the rifle doesn’t have safety switch but a half-cock. But then in an inset text he explain that the notch he was referring to is a safety switch that prevents the rifle from firing if the shooter pulls the hammer back accidentally before the trigger sear is engaged.

It has a fold-down rear sight similar to the Ruger 22, which he surmises could be from the same manufacturer. He then prepares to shoot the rifle, explaining that he is about 25 yards and will be shooting clay pigeons. He opens up the action first and proceeds to load the rifle by taking out the tube magazine and then after loading putting it back.

“It holds 15 long rifle ammo and the metal receiver on his BL22 features intricate engraving.”

He then closes and opens the action which loads a bullet in the feed ramp and then closes it. The rifle is now ready to fire. So he does, and the next scenes shows him shooting the rifle first with clay pigeons and next with a metal plate which pings whenever he hits it.

He stops because he accidentally shot the touchscreen of his video camera. And he explained that this was because he was looking through the sights and was concentrating on the targets that he didn’t notice the clearance he gave himself and the camera.

The video, although short, was made well and very understandable even for newbies. The video was clear as is the audio, which added to its watchability.
