Found one of these today in my travels. Has original box, extra magazine, paperwork. These are "off list" and hard to find. Was just wondering if it's in the "buy" range or should I pass on it. Thanks for any input. c good

Beretta's site has the model 21 listed at $335-420 so it sounds like a pretty good deal to me; if its in good shape.

Buy, unless it's been used as a beat *** daily carry gun. Sounds good to me.

Total rip off don't buy it! Where did you say you saw it again?

I've got one in .22 short.... they're really fun little guns. I'd pick it up for that much!

Those little Bobcats were real Lemons. It only feeds the most expensive European match 22s that cast 25 dollars for each box of 50, and then half the time you can't hit the target from 7 yards away. They are known to blow up when fed anything more than 90 ft/lb of energy.

PM me where you found it so I can personally call the shopkeep to take that dangerous object off the market.

It's a great little gun. I paid just about that much for it ($249, I think), and I didn't regret it a bit. It's actually surprisingly accurate for such a short barrel. The only issue I have (which is common for .22 guns) is that extraction gets tough after about 10 mags, especially when shooting Federal bulk or Remington Golden Bullets.

Fun pistol, but it seeks a role. A little bulky for pocket ccw, and it shoots a round few trust in a carry piece. For a target pistol its obviously got too short of a sight radius and barrel, as well as small sights.

Don't get me wrong, I wont be getting rid of mine either, I enjoy shooting it and its very reliable, but if you're buying it for a specific role it may fall short of other options.
