Gun Auction Round-Up
The Beretta 950 is a single action .22 short blowback pistol with a tip up barrel. It has an eight round magazine with one extra in the chamber. Even though the cartridge is derided as an impotent rapist enrager, because the owner does not have to rack the slide to load the chamber, the tip up barrel can be a good choice for those with arthritic or weak hands. This C&R Sunday going to meetin' gun is presently in the price range of a new black Beretta M21-A.
I'm not sure if this Remington Rand is all correct (the grips and screws sure ain't!) but the price is not bad at $600. In fact, at $600, the price is damned good, correct or not. It certainly appears to be correct enough. With the addition of some genuine USGI grips this old war horse could be returned to it's previous granduer rather quickly.
The only problem is that someone has throated the chamber and polished up the feed ramp. I would want to shoot this one before buying unless I was willing to accept a genuine $600 USGI paperweight.
The Remington Rand was won for $875.01
The Beretta was won for $313.98
