    Browning Challenger 1?

    My mother just gave me a 1965 Browning Challenger 1(Belgium made) that belong to my father, it is in mint condition. It has the original holster and (1) magazine, does anyone have the manual for one of these? I found one for a Challenger II, would that work?

    Pictures and a range report as I get to the range sometime in the next couple of weeks.

    Also what ammo is recommended?

    Nice pistol.
    Fires .22LR ammo, and the PDF for the manual is found here:

    Thanks Rugergirl, that is the manual (Challenger II) I found, do you know if that works for disassembly and assembly of the Challenger I?

    It is a sweet pistol

    I own a Challenger II pistol myself. Yes, they are sweet, mine is a fine shooter.


    You need to find and purchase extra magazines, they seem to be a bit weak and don't last long.

    Gunclips.net for the mags. Just lock the slide back, remove the mag and loosen the barrel screw. That is as much as you need to do.

    I, too, used to own a Challenger. Not sure if it was a I or II. It was the one pistol that I sold that caused me to never sell any other pistols that I bought since. It was a colossal mistake to sell that fine handling and fine shooting little .22. I could really shoot it in Bullseye shoots, but I had to have a Smith Model 41 so I traded the Browning in on it because, back in 1971 or 1972, I didn't have a lot of money, so it had to go. Really wished I didn't.
