We anticipate a great deal of demand for this limited production model, at the time of this printing, the retail price of the Standard Manufacturing SG22 starts at $999 and can be purchased through your local gun shop, through all major distributors, and directly from us.
The gun was created to be reminiscent of the Colt Woodsman designed by John Moses Browning in 1915. Its classic lines and overall aesthetic absolutely call to mind the beauty of the Woodsman while its modern features increase its appeal even more. The SG22 is available with either a blued or case-colored finish. Walnut grips with textured side panels for a firm hold while shooting are featured on the gun regardless of finish.
Features of the SG22 include a fixed front sight and adjustable rear sight. According to the gun maker, the sights were specifically designed for superior performance while target shooting.
