    About 40 years ago my father had a 22 pistol that looked like a Beretta 950 with a short barrel and had a longer barrel the could be replaced by twisting or screwing on the other barrel. It then looked like a Beretta 950 with the long barrel. Would anyone have any ideal what pistol this may have been? Thanks

    I don't have any pictures and we don't know what happen to the pistol My dad died 20 years ago so I'm not able to ask him. I talked to my older brothers and they didn't know what it was.

    The only thing that comes to mind is the Astra Cub. It was about the same size as a Beretta 950, and there was a version in 22 Short with a long barrel. I have no idea if they were sold with 2 barrels, but they very well might have been; the basic design was quite suitable for that. You can probably see one if you do a Google image search. HTH!

    You may be right. I couldn't find that they ever came with both barrels but after reading how to take-down the Astra Cub it looked like if you had a Astra Cub Camper barrel, it could be used to extend the Cub. The way it described how it worked, it sounded like what I remember. Thanks for your help.
