View Full Version : Beretta .22 and .32 pistols review with pics

14-03-2010, 02:31 AM
Amongst these two guns the Beratta .22 L.R. model 72 is considered as one of the best allrounders for CC, SD and target shooting. The .22 comes with two barerels i.e 3.5 inch and 6 inch. It weighs only 0.5 pounds (with empty magazine ) and carries 8+1 rounds. Fixed front and rear sights. It is very light and feels like you are holding a cigarette box in your hand when shooting.

Extremely accurate at 25 metres and never misses. There were times when i did'nt clean it for a year and still it never caught rust. I have fired about 2000 rounds through this gun and not one mis fire. My Dad bought it as his first gun in the early 70's and gave it to me as a gift in 2001. I will gift it to my child when he/she is mature.

The .32 model 70 comes more in the category of CC and SD. It comes with one short barrel. Weighs 0.66 pounds ( with empty magazine ). It is 8+1 rounds. Fixed front and rear sights.
I have not fired it much but it is very accurate and reliable at 15 meters. It has fixed front and rear sights.

an they say the .22 an the .32 is obsolete for SD. as long as such fine guns are around .. these calibres are a force to be reckoned with

last real berettas.

in former yugoslavia ( it does not exists any more ) we had chance
to use much of those pistols, italy is next door...

they were respected because of theirs quality and very good design and ergonomics.

placing barrels in those pistols are longer then on former 1934 / 35 model,
rails for it are longer and it makes them high accurate, especially for this class of weapons.

really nice pieces for collection, one of my favorites.
