Beretta 87 Cheetah .22 Long Rifle 22 lr Blue Wood
by allan m Date Added: Thursday 02 June, 2011
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.

Rating: 2 of 5 Stars! [2 of 5 Stars!]
