So I had heard that the CCI Quiet stuff was pretty quiet but that it wouldn't cycle semis. It's only moving at about 710 fps, so that makes sense.

I had a time finding some and one of my dealers in NC was nice enough to hook me up with 2 bricks. I really wanted a case, but $600 for a 5k rd case of .22 was a bit steep even for me.

I ran some rounds through my Browning T bolt and I was impressed. Like really impressed. BTW- The threaded T Bolt is the balls.

I tried it on one of my MKIII's and sure enough about a 50% fail rate.

But, the crown jewel of silencer hosts (for me anyway) is the Beretta 70S Jaguar. Jason at AO threaded it and made an adapter for it a few months ago and it has turned into my favorite rimfire host. (Thomas coated the slide and Mark took my money- credit where credit is due ).

100% success rate.

My face was all like
And the gun was all like PEW PEW PEW

Nice! And a cool Beretta to boot!

My favorite .22 pistol is my Beretta 76.......highly accurate and retro-cool.

Great setup. I've been wanting a 70S ever since the 80's and have never found one.

Trivia question: What is the 70S's claim to fame?

Used to be fielded by Israeli Air Marshals. Also, the pistols issued to the operatives that hunted down the terrorists who committed the atrocities at the '72 Olympics in Munich.

If you're interested, I looked a few minutes ago, and there's one up on Gunbroker right now. I think it was listed in the $600s.

What a nice thing to think about while we're still right near 9/11. Hunting down and deliberately expiring terrorists.

Love the Israelis. I've spent a bit of time there and trained with elements of the IDF as well as their "Fed LEO's".

If I ever have to leave the US for good, I'm going to Israel.

I suspected the two of you would know.

I read the book Vengeance by George Jonas when it came out in 1984. In the book, Jonas claimed the 70S was the pistol used by the Mossad hit squads. I figured any pistol used to whack a bunch of terrorist was high on my list to get. Too bad they were discontinued around the same time. FYI, I had a buddy who was a former CIA officer and he told me they also used the 70S in small numbers because they made good suppressor hosts and were deniable.


Link Posted: 9/14/2013 7:31:55 PM EST
p0p0k0pf, the 76 is a great pistol. I got mine off GB years ago, with 2 mags. Picked up 3 more mags since then. If you were thinking of using it as a suppressor host, it would take some fancy machining to make it happen.

Shot mine quite a few times at the Steel Challenge in Griffin, did very well.
Link Posted: 9/15/2013 3:53:52 AM EST
hey IKH, have you founf a decent source for spare mags for your 70? I've got one too. Favorite 22 by far, (and i plan on having Jason work his magic as well.) but I've only got one mag. I've been looking for over a year and I can't find any spare factory mags for it.

If you want to pay top dollar, Gunbroker or Armslist.

Honestly I stumbled on that one when I was visiting Cherokee Gun & Pawn. Rich took care of me on it and I was more than happy.

The best places are random pawn shops and gun stores. It will take up a lot more time and money doing it that way though.

That is what I am assuming, but the 10rd mag said factory.

Every time I see a 70 it makes me think of some bad guy on an old James Bond movie.

It is my favorite 22, and one of my favorite handguns. I picked one up as a gift for helping out a friend a few years back. I've probably put 2k rounds through it since. Which is a lot when you consider I only have 1 8rd mag for it.

BH is that because the barrel is fixed and the slide actually slides off over the end of the barrel? I have never seen one so just guessing here.

You guys have ruined me. I want one too.

Btw, what would be a decent price for one of these, should I ever manage to find one?

Also (you can IM if needed), what's the cost to thread one?

Thanks guys.

For threading it, we needed to thread the barrel, make a custom adapter and thread that on the inside to fit the barrel and then thread externally for the suppressor. Knurled thread protector and the set screw are the last pieces. Total was $210.

That's not bad. I was quoted $150 just to thread a removable CZ 455 barrel the other day. I'm guessing threading for a Beretta 21a would be around the same as the 70s?
Link Posted: 9/21/2013 5:30:59 AM EST
I too have a 21a. Mine is matte stainless with a prodigy on the end. Fun gun!

Got mine from Accurate Ordnance less than a yr ago. At the time they were a stocking item already threaded. Reach out to Bookhound for 21a.

Another htf member and i have been discussing the 70 and other similar size 22's lately. How do they compare to the 21a? I love the size of the 21, but wouldn't mind adding another slightly larger pistol with a little better sights.

It's always easy to justify adding another 22 to the safe.
Link Posted: 9/21/2013 5:33:40 AM EST
BH's 21a was the first suppressed weapon I had ever seen let alone shot. I bought my pilot that day!

it's been down hill (for my bank account) since then.

If Memory serves right the 70S was $400-$450 or so.

Gunbroker will being a premium. If you see one in a local shop make the shop an offer on it.

Adter all this talk I think that I am going to look for another one. This one with a thumb safety.

I'll be looking, for sure. If you find one up in your area that's in good enough condition for a good price, please contact me (I'm in Savannah).

I've only bought one gun from a pawn shop, and I think I got a good deal on it. Offered cash, and it was that price out the door. It's a Glock 33, and just last night I was able to find a Lone Wolf 9mm conversion barrel for it for only $90 shipped. 9mm is lot's cheaper than .357 Sig, plus I can use my other 9mm Glock mags in it if needed then.

Hey Mark,
How did y'all handle the front sight? Was it moved to the frame instead of the barrel?

Interesting. If I wanted to thread a Beretta 72 (long barrel 71), could the front sight be moved back? Here is a picture:

FYI - I finally found a Beretta 87, so I listed my 70s on ODT.

I need to get it added to the EE here as well...
Link Posted: 10/28/2013 10:41:15 AM EST
Sorry Acct- I didn't see your post!

I don't have a cutter to make such a small dovetail along the bore-line, so the sight would have to be installed another way. It could be laser-welded or soldered on and re-shaped, but that would be a bit of work that is outside my knowledge area.

I liked the original pic OP but this shit with the CT laser looks like a retard designed it.

You should know never to go full retard.
