I have a question that hopefully someone can help me with. I know of a BPR 22 mag that could be for sale and I'd like to know what the price range would be for one that could have some age on it or is NIB. By having some age I mean one that could be worth more if it is a Belgium made gun or not. Anywho, no big deal, might spark some interest and I'd sure like to know.

Gunbroker.com will give you a good nib price, and some auction prices, but they tend to be little high in my opinion. I guess it all depends on quality and age.

Hope this helps.

I had to look that up on Gunbroker myself, I have never run across one in the shop or show that I can recall. Looks like 400-500 online price and probably made in Japan. I don't have a Blue Book of Gun Values around or I could tell you a little more with it.

It does. I use gunbroker all the time, just looking for someone who might know a little more than what they give you. I agree too on their prices, a bit high on some.

Sorry OSU no experience with that rifle. Just wanted to comment about checking prices using gunbroker. I usually find that searching GB using the completed auctions option under advanced searching to yield much more accurate results. In this case only a couple part for the mag. showed. So no help here.

If you really want to know, follow this link and pay for a subscription. I have a book at the shop but won't be by there till tomorrow. I don't have the online subscription.

That's a good source - but really it's only worth what someone will pay for it - regardless of "value". The rimfire BPR's were made by Miroku (Japan) for Browning, so you don't have to worry about the whole Belgium-made-or-not thing like some other Browning guns.
They are nice rifles. I've only fired the .22 LR model, not the mag, but the one I shot was a quick cycling, accurate rifle. A touch heavy compared to some other rimfires, but that made it not feel like a toy, but a real rifle. If it was in great shape and you really want it I don't think I'd go higher than about 500.

Thank you all for the info, helps out a lot! I had a chance to visit with my dad who keeps up to date with GB and has every gun value book for the last 100 years and learned about the BPR 22 mags only being made for 5 or so years in Japan. I have also learned they made a "trombone" 22 LR earlier that is worth a bit more. Maybe that is it. Going to look at it today, thanks again!
