Beretta 21 Bobcat .22 LR Inox Stainless
[J212500]
$331.00
by Wesley K Date Added: Wednesday 07 December, 2011
This little pistol is very nice. As expected, it takes awhile to break it in and is very finnicky on ammo. Put a 500-round pack of cheap ammo through it first to get it loosened up... maybe something like Remington Gold, which gave me about 25 failure to feeds in the first 250 rounds, but otherwise went well. Also, buy a boresnake because it will be worth its weight in gold. These little bobcats prefer a fairly hot, round-nosed bullet... ideally the CCI mini-mags (round nose, not hollow point), which run great... but they also don't like to be dirty so when you first break it in, use the boresnake after the first six bullets (after each round), then after each of the next six magazines (after every 7 rounds), and then after every other magazine (after every 14 rounds). Also, when first breaking in, it has a lot fewer failures if you load only 5 in the mag (instead of 7 max capacity) and 1 in the chamber. Lastly, for the first couple of weeks, when you're not at the range, stuff 7 or 8 rounds in the mags to help take some of the stiffness out of the springs. They seem to cause fewer feed issues when the springs have had a chance to loosen up. These pistols have a lot of bad rep because most folks don't take the time and care to break them in well, but once you do, the result is a very reliable little pistol (using high quality ammo like the round-nose CCI mini-mags, that is) that is perfectly sized for comfortable pocket or IWB carry. I'm thrilled with mine.
