I like it a lot. Seems like a good deal as well for what you get. My only issue is I wish they would have came out with a semi auto to compete with the 10/22.

Do people still buy bolt action .22’s?

I do! And now that I’ve got one I wonder what took me so long! It’s set up similar to my hunting rifles, same trigger and all. It’s been a great way to get tons of trigger time and practice with wind

Yep I'll likely buy one since it will be a somewhat similar setup as my CA Ridgeline. Also I have a 22lr can I haven't used yet. In my opinion cans always look better on carbon fiber barrels (or any barrel with wider contour).

Bergara has a semi in 22lr threaded (both ends) proof carbon barrel takes 10/22 mags. $600 at a local store.
BXR carbon
They also have a bolt 22 out

this Is frustrating. The words “carbon fibre” doesn’t make me want to part with greenbacks like some folks

So as for the merits of the gun

10/22 mag is good
So is the trigger tech

but proprietary action spacing,
huge drop in comb
0 moa rail
Diminutive size
And bentz chamber are big negatives

Believe you can get other rails, just comes with the 0.

Are these hitting the shelves yet? My buddy has had one on order for almost 8 months at the local sportsmans warehouse.

They are not carbon wrapped barrel. I shot one and it shot very well.
The one i saw had a Proof carbon barrel
From their web site:

The BXR 22 LR series comes in two configurations. The base model (part number BXR001) sports a 4140 CrMo fluted steel barrel with a blued finish, with a stock that is green with black fleck and weighs 6.1lbs. The upgraded BXR is a carbon fiber model (part number BXR002) that is topped with a carbon fiber barrel, a black stock with grey fleck that weighs a mere 4.75lbs.

Sounds like he should be getting it soon then. He ordered the carbon model.

I was referring to the Ranger 22 from Christensen Arms. I thought that was what this thread was about?

We just returned from SHOT Show 2020. We shot the Ranger 22 Monday at industry range day. We ordered two and it was my understanding they are not shipping yet and are a few months out.

Again this is the Christensen Arms Ranger 22 as per thread title. Not a Bargara.
