I've always liked the smaller Beretta autos especially those in 22. My local dealer had gotten several of the recent imports with the fake suppressor. Their gunsmith had removed the fake suppressor and threaded the barrel. Shooting was a lot of fun both suppressed and not although my AAC can blocks the front sight. I think it throws empty brass at least 20 feet, farther than any other 22 auto I own. Prices on these imports have dropped to the $250 range. You may want to give them a look they are a lot of gun for the money.

The choice of many a hit man and very big in Isreal ..Lot of there wet teams used them up to today

One thing to note the threading can be pretty rough if you pull the can off of them and it not the normal USA threading it is 1/2x20 not 1/2x28

I have been eying them for a long time for a can host

I have used them in 380 and such and love the little things

Very nice well made guns with a lot of history in them

If you want a pc of history they are cool, I have one and it works fine with a real can, that said, if you are looking for a host for your suppressor there are better modern options - my favorite is: https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/21_145/products_id/411542918

Were the factory threads concentric to the bore? Been wanting one for the the can, but afraid to waste the $$ if the threads are no good.

Used an adapter and it worked fine.
