    I'm lookin into buying a beretta model 72.

    Anybody got to hold one of these? It looks like a sweet little sidearm. Plinkin uses (target practice), and critter hunting.

    Someone had an older beretta model 70 here. How did that shoot?


    You can see it here

    Thanks for the help! It comes in great cond. w/ the smaller barrel.

    Beretta 70S

    I believe that this pistol also is known as the Jaguar. I have one and it is the sweetest shooting .22 auto I own. I have shot many hundreds of rounds with it and have never had one malfunction! Because of its light weight frame it is a joy to carry. The only two other .22 autos I have ever had with this standard of reliability are the Rugers and the Llama miniature copy of the 1911, but neither are as comfortable to carry as the Beretta.

    thanks!

    I was looking at the Jag, just with the extended barrel in addition to the standard shorty. Figured it'd add some accuracy and range to that nicer looking 5-6" barrel.

    Accuracy rating?


    Thanks for the heads up double double u.

    Jaguar's are nice. Enjoyed mine while I owned it (at least I think it was a Jaguar - sigh amazing what one forgets with a bit of time).

    Still not sure how accurate these are, but I'd assume they're fine. It is Beretta :).

    Thanks all
