Beretta 87 Cheetah .22 Long Rifle 22 lr Blue Wood [87B210]
by BG G
Date Added: Wednesday 17 October, 2012
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.
