So I bought a NIB unfired Browning Challenger II a couple of years ago. Loved it so much that I vowed never to sell it. To make sure I wouldn't, I threw away the box, hopefully killing the collector value/temptation to sell it. I know, DUMB, but I didn't want to make the mistake of letting it go in a weak moment. After shooting it I was sure I would never want anything else for this purpose, plinking and target shooting. Anyway, I went to the Browning site to check the manufacture date and, according to their dating system, this was made in 1983. The kicker is that they stopped making it in 1982. Regardless of manufacture date these things in this condition go for around $400, but is it possible that I really shot myself in the foot? Could this be one of the very last made? Is it new old stock? They are kind of rare in that they were only made for a couple of years and it was the last steel framed .22 pistol they ever made. I called Browning, and they couldn't explain why the manufacture date came out as a 1983. Did I screw up? Does it still have collector value?
