    I finally got one in the shop, and it is a great little rifle!

    How can anything Hammerli be so inexpensive, and is anyone familiar with values/performance of these rifles? Shot about 30 out of it and it was solid as a rock, every bit a Hammerli. Probably a 3/4" group at 100. Pretty darn solid for a stock .22

    What's the story on these?

    Are the values rising?

    Should I bring it home?

    Isn't that similar to a Marlin Model 60? I bet the quality is superb.

    Pretty much. I think they retailed for around $200? Maybe less, maybe a little more....came out in late 2008, then quickly disappeared. I can't find a solid value on it, but they go between 150-300 on gunbroker.

    Hammerli's pistols are superb, and their rifles are a niche, but very solid as well, and generally very expensive.

    It is a VERY solid gun....and VERY accurate. Blows a Marlin 60 away, IMO. Which is what is throwing me off with the value (that, and the fact that I can't find any reliable, published values).

    I can't decide if I want to bring it home or not. We got it for a song, and I do not have one (I collect 22s, but primarily older ones, and primarily Winchesters). But I could turn a good profit on it too. A little torn on this one :)

    I saw it on the rack, took it out back and filled the tube twice.

    I can't get it out of my mind since :)

    I'd hang onto it just because it's somewhat rare. I didn't even know they made a semi-auto rimfire rifle.

    I recently purchased the Sport 22SA at a pawn shop and took the rifle out yesterday to shoot. Compared to my dozen or so other 22s (including the Ruger 10/22), this one shot fairly well. It weighs more, which really minimizes the recoil if you'll believe it. Accuracy wasn't bad either. The only hiccup was a spent casing which took a little effort to get out. The ammo was a bit dirty, so I wouldn't exactly blame it on the rifle. For the amount I paid ($138 plus tax), I'm not too disappointed.
