Description:

Interarms model ATD copy of the famous & expensive Browning SA .22 semi auto rifle – These rifles are well made and reliable. Nice checkering on wood with a high gloss finish. This gun breaks into 2 sections (18” & 19”) via an interrupted thread & lock lever. Makes a great knapsack Camp Gun. Loads via tube in stock (11 rounds)*. These were only imported by Interarms for a short period in the 80’s. Seldom seen anymore. Beautiful lines and handling semi auto.

They have several of the

They have several of the ATDs, however it would appear that all of the forearms have been replaced for some reason and there are color variations between the stock and forearm. Thus the price. They answered (610) 250-3960 and knew what I was asking about.

We fired several factory .22

We fired several factory .22 autoloaders to get a baseline for comparison. These included a Ruger 10/22, a Browning Grade I autoloader, a Norinco ATD copy of the Browning from Interarms, and a circa-1970 Remington Model 77 Apache. All of them shot remarkably alike. The Remington did not function reliably with all standard-velocity ammunition, but the Ruger 10/22, the Browning and the ATD did. The ATD shot fully as well as the Browning, a pleasant surprise. I had intended to reline the ATD as an experiment, and then shoot it again for comparison. But when I saw the targets with CCI Standard Velocity and Eley Subsonic Hollowpoints, my chosen squirrel ammunition, I took Jim Coleman’s advice that “if it ain’t broke, Mister, don’t fix it!”

Our results suggest that over the long run most .22 autoloaders will average 2 inches or so for five ten-shot groups with high-velocity ammunition. Standard-velocity ammunition was more accurate, averaging about 1 1/2 inches. The Browning approached 1-inch with Eley Tenex ammo, as did the Norinco ATD with Eley Subsonic HP.
