    I just bought a Beretta Mdl 71 in .22 cal




    It's 47 years old and never misses a beat.

    Even tho I like the new .22's - the old ones are fun too.

    Other than racking the slide repeatedly, do you think using graphite lube would make any difference over a period of time. Being very careful not to over do it, using a dremel tool, would do the trick quicker. Being an ex Dental Lab Tech. regular old black board chalk is a good but mild abrasive at a moderately slow speed. This of course would be used on the rails of the slide and receiver slide contact areas. I'm not at the point of doing anything to my Phoenix PA22, just asking members that have one for an opinion.

    As far as good solid and fun 22s go I would recommend the ruger sr22.
    I bought one a few months ago and it has been great. No ammo tolerance issues like many other 22 semi auto pistols have. It feels nice in my large hands and is a lot of fun.
    Easy to disassemble and reassemble.
    The only time this weapon has malfunctioned was when it hadn't been cleaned for 500-1000 rnds and I had a friends 8 year old kid shooting it. The kid was holding it with a weak grip and bent arms and was taking too much recoil out so there were frequent FTEs. After I got him to keep his arms straight the probelm went away.
    I have fired all of the cheapest types of ammo that I can find through this pistol with no problems and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a super fun plinker 22.
    As a note, its design is taken from modern tactical pistols and it looks like a cut down modern pistol, it is not as accurate as a ruger mk1-3 or a other 22s like that.
    It is pretty comparable to a walther22 or a sig mosquito, but without the ammo issues.

    Unless you're an exceptional markmans, using a .22LR pistol, your target for a head shot, better be no more than 25 yards away, up to point blank. Now with my Winchester model 72 bolt action, 100 year old rifle. I could probably shoot you in the eye at 50-75 yards in the head at 100-125 yards. A chest shot with a 22LR pistol round, just about took Reagan out due to they couldn't find the the lead and the spot of bleeding. Using a .22 rifle, really speeds up the round. If you really had a good place to shoot and practice 25,50,75,100 yards, practicing 3 times a week or so, would really help a lot. Not much reason to go past 50 yards with pistol but you may learn a few things, you didn't know, which would help go from a marginal shooter to a good shooter with your 22LR pistol.

    Well Surprise surprise, this man has just what I'm looking for.
    I've located one at a local gunshop but it was at the gun smiths.
    I'm hoping it will be ready soon. I dread trying to buy one online
    and since I'm looking to trade this is about my only chance to get one
    in my area.
    I have spent a ton of time reading reviews and watching amateur videos about them.
    Most by young guys with little experience with firearms.
    I did find a couple that seemed to know what to look for in a gun.
    Anyway most of the folks really liked theirs so I'm looking forward to getting my own.
    I'm cutting way back on the big bore stuff, it is just too expensive on a SS pension,
    Still have a couple that handle 38 / 357, & 44Spl. for serious shooting.
    But I'm mostly shooting 22LR for fun and to keep my eye in.
    And I want a fun to shoot and easy to carry little gun.
    Any comments or recommendations about the Phoenix are appreciated.
    Get R Done! LOL

    [QUOTE=Crusty;224633]I bought a Firestorm (Bersa) 22lr about two months ago, have nearly 1000 rounds thru it with just a few fail to fire's. All but one of those fired on the next try. Great little gun![/QUOTE

    I had a Bersa 380 before they started calling them "Thunder" or any other fancy names.
    It is a Walther PPK Clone. Bersa made them for the war effort in the 1940's with the original blueprints.
    And were later able to put their own name on them. I bought it for my wife but she is mechanically challenged and likes my snubbie so I traded it to my brother. It was a very good operating gun and very well built, I was amazed at the fit and finish. The double action pull is pretty heavy but pretty smooth
    single action was quite good with very little creep and broke crisply. Main reason I traded it is I've been removing guns that require me to buy another caliber ammo. Sticking to 38 /357 for serious with a backup gun in 44 spl. I want the little Phoenix as a plinker first and as a pocket mouse last.
    I'm very fortunate that I can walk out my front door to my picnic table and bang away to my hearts desire.
    Usually have invited my neighbor and my Bro and maybe his buddy will tag along.
    Then the rest of the neighbors crawl into their bunkers be cause it starts to sound like a war zone, or at least an active shooting range. LOL Don't have to worry about the law because everyone else around here shoots too. Gets a bit noisy at times.
    The upshot of Gabby's ramble is that Bersa makes a good firearm and you should get great service from it after you find which ammo it likes best. I never had any trouble with the 380 but didn't shoot it a whole lot do to expensive ammo.
    I hope this helps.

Also will this pistol accept HP ammo? Thanks!

    Almost any licensed dealer will order one for you. Here in Oregon we can order one from the internet and have it deilvered to the dealer for a handling fee and background check fee, I just don't wabt to go that route since I'm often doing a trade.

    I've got the Browning URX Contour. I got the one with the 7.25" barrel because I liked the additional weight. Open sights at 10 yards is child's play netting bullseyes; you can do it all day long. It took some time to become fairly accurate at 25 yards, at least for me, anyways. By fairly accurate I mean I can land the rounds, open sights (with my eyes, no less lol) in a 6" diameter circle. For me, at that range, it's good. Eventually I'll get better. I love the thing. I can shoot it all day long and it costs me more in gas to get to the range than it does to fire it. I might put a sscope or something on it at a later date, but I'm having too much fun with it now.

    I have a Colt Service Ace, bought it about 30 years ago new, I love that weapon. It's so fun to shoot. Have run lots of different ammo through it, and can only remember a couple times in all these years when the slide didn't lock back on the last shot. The action is so fast it feels like it goes full auto, it doesn't of course, but it sure is fun to blow up a bunch of rounds at a can really fast.

    Jtex, This thread was about 22lr pistols, not rifles. So, I don't think we are talking about "head shots" mostly having fun. I have a Ruger 22/45 with bull barrel and FO front site it is very "fun" to shoot and still helps me relax when shooting and concentrate on the front site when i rapid fire at 3 different targets at varying distances.

    I am looking for another pistol ,probably a 9mm. So this is a 2 part reply. One ,if there is anyone who can suggest a 9mm "house gun" I would apprecite it and the 2nd part is this:if you are looking for a 22 pistol avoid Browning. I have a Buckmark and I am sorry I bought it. Its picky as to ammo and more important Browning customer service is horrible. When I got the gun I noticed that the front sight blade was warped. I called Browning's customer service and explained that while you could use the gun the sight was defective and needed to be replaced . I asked if they would send be a replacement (since its a screw- on part) so I could use the gun in the interim) and I would send back the defected part when I got the new blade. I was told in a VERY rude manner that my word would not be accepted and if I wished to claim that there was a defect I must mail them the entire gun to them at my expense. I repeated that my suggestion would allow me use and possession of the gun(at least for home defense purposes) and sending the entire firearm to them meant no shooting at the range(even with defected sight ) and no possibility of home defense and said that going along with my suggesting would be a show of good will and encourage me to continue as a customer. To this the representative replied that Browning had plenty of customers and that if I wished to make my next purchase from another company I should feel free to do so. In sum .Browning did not care in the least that they sold me a defective product and did not care about keeping me as a customer. It is clear that they are too big to give a darn about an individual buyer. I wish I was warned about their terrible attitude and rude customer service representative. I say representativeS because I called back ,got another representative but,the same "we don't care about the little person" attitude. I'll never buy from Browning again . Sooner or latter you need customer service and Browning's is virtually non-existent. There are plenty of other makers and as the saying goes,"fool me twice shame on me". Anyway,as to 9mm ..If you have a suggestion,especially if you dealt with the company's service department and they were helpful,please let me know what you think. So far I'm considering ,CZ,Springfield,S&W ,Sig and Ruger.

    That is the way I started my Wife with her first 22 pistol. Sit down, go through the manual, strip and clean, demonstrate familiarity. All before the first trip to the range

    I was at my local LGS today, and they had a brand new Phoenix .22 there for $200. What a piece of junk... magazine didn't fit the gun properly, slide didn't slide properly, trigger was like a plastic toy. I know there are some posters on this thread that are happy with them for the price, but there is no way that I would own one of those things at any price. To compare, the Walther PPK .22 felt and worked like a real gun, and was only around $350. Trigger pull was heavy, but otherwise a very nice gun.

    Please make sure that use good brand of gun cleaning kit.There are many good companies and I use Hoppe's cleaning kits that have everything you need. I also use oil on the breech area, the chamber and the muzzle to avoid moisture in that area. It will increase the life of firearm and maintain it working condition.
