I recently purchased a Beretta 87 Cheetah from Bud's. I searched for this pistol locally for some time without success. A number of online dealers carry this pistol, but Bud’s was the only one who had it in stock. The price was reasonable and ordering was easy, although shipping took a bit longer than expected. That said, shipping was free, so no real complaints.

The pistol itself is a great looking little gun with full sized features. I purchased the Beretta for inexpensive range sessions and as a small game-getter. The 22 Cal Cheetah did not disappoint. The single action trigger is light and runs approx 4.25 lbs – a very clean break with no creep. It ran right out of the box with Federal bulk ammo. Accuracy is outstanding and the action is smooth.

CCI Mini-Mags produced 1” groups at 12 yards and 2.5” groups at 25 yards from a sandbag rest at the range. I had no problem hitting old shotgun hulls at 50 yards when I did my part. CCI Stingers shot a bit flatter and grouped well, but produced a noticeable increase in muzzle blast. CCI Velocitors were definitely hot, but produced inconsistent groupings. CB Long and CCI Quite ammo surprisingly required no sighting adjustment out to 25 yards, but the slide must be hand-cycled. The Remington Target and CCI Standard produced the worst shot groups. After a total of 800 rounds of assorted ammo, I experienced 6 misfires: primers were hit without ignition, no fault of the Cheetah.

Since them, I have taken 3 squirrels with this pistol from approx 20 yards each. The pistol is lightweight and is a joy to carry cocked and locked while in the woods. Fit and finish are great – no machine marks to speak of as indicated by the previous review. I did remove the magazine disconnect (bar and spring) without issue. The only negatives I can level against the Beretta Cheetah is the obnoxious safety warnings and the ill-placed European proof marks, interrupting an otherwise perfect pistol.

To thick to be a good carry pistol and has no practical application other than a fun plinker or tackle box weapon. Over priced and sloppy detailing. Three stars because of the price for what you get. More quality control at the factory is needed.

My rating is based on three different pistols all purchased from Bud's. Bud's did a great job but Beretta needs a little work.

I purchased one about a month ago and felt it was a mixed package. Nice style and features also shot well but finish work left much to be desired. Tooling marks, sharp edges and the slide scuffs the barrel in only a 100 or so rounds. It is a fun gun but for 700.00 I expect a little more attention to detail. Also, I find the 7 round mag. rather anoying, why not 10??

At any rate I purchased two more partly to see what the detail work would be like on the two new ones. The new ones were the same but the areas showing poor finish work were different areas on each gun.

I enjoy shooting these pistols and they seem to shoot well and function well so I will consider these pistols as keepers but much over priced. If you don't mind spending 700.00 for a plinker that's fun to shoot and you don't mind some sloppy finish work then this is just what you're looking for.

I rate these pistols 5 stars because they are fun and 3 stars because of the poor attention to detail and finish work. I also have to rate the price a 2 stars. Over all rating on my 3 pistols is a solid 3 stars. Even with a 3 star rating it's still a fun gun. I'll keep mine, but I would encourage Beretta to either recuce the price or detail out the sharp edges and tool marks.

This Beretta 87 Cheetah .22 looks real nice but thats where it ends. First 8 rounds produced 6 failures to feed using Winchester ammo. There are extremely sharp edges on the rear of the slide making it precarious to push the slide forward when the slide doesn't cycle all the way. The clip is somewhat difficult to load ammo into and it also has very sharp edges. The trigger pull weight is ok but there is some drag somewhere in the trigger mechinism that can be felt when cocking in single action. The finish is nice except for the places where the finish has flaked off on the frame around some of the edges of the stamped lettering. The alloy frame appears to be silver in the places where the finish flaked off around the lettering. The spots are not large, more like pin point spots like there may have been tiny burs that flaked off around the lettering and the finish went with them. The gun feels nice in the hand but I wasn't able to get on paper at 30 feet.

This pistol is highly praised in the reviews, but I'm thinking that the reviews must have been done by folks new to handgunning or they got a much different pistol than I did.

With some detail work at the factory this may be a nice firearm for the money, but as it stands this item is over priced. Buyer be ware, you may get one like I did. I have to give this a 2 rating because of the sharp edges and finish flaws on a piston in this price range. The failures to feed may possibly be corrected with different ammo but I haven't tried anything different yet.

I am still in the 10 day waiting period to pick mine up in California. This was my first purchase from Buds and I was a little worried it wouldn't come with the magazines or something, since it was the lowest price I could find. Also, these pistols are reportedly hard to find at all, but Buds had them in stock.

It arrived with everything, so Buds didn't short change.

I became interested in this gun largely based upon the reputation of a different Beretta 22, the 70 series. That has a reputation for incredible reliability. Unfortunately, the 70 series is very hard to find, at least in California. Some reviews had claimed the 87 was picky, but many others made it sound like it would eat anything. I decided to take a chance.

This pistol is somewhat compact and can be carried cocked and locked or be fired in double action. For whatever reason I was anti double action, but then decided it was a bonus over the 70 series since this pistol is DA/SA. Double action for a semi enables you to pull the trigger again on a dud round, something not possible on a single action only (ie, Ruger MkIII). Also, you can carry with a round in the chamber and the hammer down, perhaps desirable compared to cocked and locked. DA/SA provides options.

This pistol is also very handsome compared to the few semi 22 pistols available new today. I think most Ruger 22s are ugly (some models look nice, though), and they're huge. The Buckmark is nice but huge, too. The P22 feels like a toy ready to fly apart (I rented one at a local range). The Pheonix Arms and its clones look OK but I'd worry about one flying apart, too. The Beretta 21 is not available new in Cali. The Beretta 87 looks great.

The pistol arrived in a plastic case with a California approved lock and two magazines. I am still waiting to pick it up, but I checked the magazine release when registering the gun: the magazine popped out half way - nice! I believe it comes with a magazine disconnect, a "feature" which can make mag removal hard for the various pistols which come with that, but it looks like Beretta did this one right.

Downer: the mags should be able to hold ten, don't know why Beretta limited them to eight. There is also a ten round version which is a little longer, sold with the 87 Target. I haven't found any indication that these will fit in the Cheetah, but I don't know why they wouldn't, and they look identical other than the larger "butt" on the ten rounder. I'll update the review after I try the Cheetah with a ten rounder from a rental Target.
