Imagined and created by George Hoenig for his personal use, featured in the March, 1979 issue of Guns & Ammo Magazine and originating from the estate of Tom Siatos, this tremendous little Browning SA-22 .22 LR is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. It is actually a backpacker/takedown, that process accomplished by loosening a set screw and then using a special takedown tool which Hoenig constructed. Once apart, it slipped into a custom case. (Both the takedown tool and case and are lost to the ages.) BARREL: A Winchester Model 52 .22 LR barrel with a muzzle diameter of .940-inch and date stamp “54” was shortened to 16 inches and fitted to the Browning SA-22 action. Hoenig then added a petite English stock with 26 lines-per-inch wrap around bordered checkering at the grip and continued the pattern on the butt. SCOPE: The 2.5x Lyman Alaskan has a crosshair reticle and rides in Unertl mounts. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 6.6 pounds. Overall length is 31.5 inches. The barrel is 16-inches long and the length-of-pull is 11.5 inches. CONDITION: The bore is pristine. Metal finish is about 97 percent, with slight thinning to the barrel blue and several light scratches on the action. Wood finish and condition are both pristine. Optics are clear and appear entirely sound.
