Beretta 9M 22



Log in to see fewer ads
Picked up my new Beretta M9 22 today and took it to the range .
Gave it wipe down and pulled a boresnake through the barrel and loaded the Mag up 15 MiniMags.
Target was set at 10 yards .
At first I was shooting about an inch out at around one oíclock. Shot about four mags of MM and switched over to Blazers . I shot two boxes of Blazers and a few mags of CCI AR22 . The more I shot the closer to Center the group got .
Not a FTF or FTF out of the lot . Group size was a hole a little bigger than a golf ball , just a touch right of center . Not enough to even fool with the sights right now until itís broken in a little more . And thatís with my fuzzy vision .
What a fun pistol .

They are definitely fun to shoot. Great feel to them like the 9mm. 15 round mags are unusual for a.22 pistol.

My 2019 Merry Christmas to me, range toy.



Mine is the 92FS version. I made it out to the range a couple of times to shoot some steel. I whole heartily agree with the OP it is a lot of fun. It shoots everything I've put in it. I mostly shoot CCI SV but it cycled thru a few magazines of Rem Golden Bullets, CCI Mini Mags and Blazer ammo with no issues. Looking forward to getting back on the range when they reopen, they are all closed here due to Covid.

It's been a popular handgun with new shooters.
I had a couple of new shooters out to shoot 22lr's indoors at the range, both where quite impressed with the 92FS (other handguns Ruger Single Six & Ruger MK IV Hunter c/w Red Dot). After I explained the how the controls and feel, except recoil, of the 92FS 22lr is the same as my 92A1 9mm, they are looking forward to trying my 92A1 9mm on the outdoor range. Both are thinking about up grading their gun licenses so they can own/purchase handguns. With everything closed, they can't get into a course until Covid has passed. In the mean time they picked up one of those Umarex CO2 Beretta full auto BB guns.

Early February, a local troop of Boy Scouts came to our range for an introductory into handgun shooting. The Beretta 92FS 22lr was popular and safer. When letting them investigate the various actions and getting them to preform safety checks, the smaller younger ones where able to control the muzzle a lot better when working the weaker 22lr slide. They shot various 22lr handguns, they all had fun and are keen to come back in the summer for some rifle shooting.

It's a keeper I've picked up a couple more magazines and plan on buying an assortment of spare parts, guide rod & spring etc., from Brownell's.

I don't know why these aren't more popular. Great pistol with 15 round mags and threaded barrel. Identical in size to the 9mm version but a little lighter. Mine has been 100% reliable and is not picky about ammo.

I have owned a M9-22 for a couple of years now and I love it. I take it to every pistol range session. I normally take the M9-.22 and 1 of my other hand guns. About half of all my shooting is .22 and it saves me a lot of money and I just find the mild recoil and noise more enjoyable than bigger calibers. I highly recommend this pistol to anyone looking for a reliable and accurate .22. It’s a lot of fun and great value.

With Covid still goin on and the political crap going on its hard to find one of these.
Low n behold...after looking every where...i found one about 2.5 hrs. from me. Private seller ...still new in the box with new beretta walnut grips.
Price was few dollars higher than what it would be new at a dealer but who knows how much they will be once there back in stock.
These are actaully made by Umarex...a german company with high reviews. I have a 92FS 9mm and a Beretta 96A1 40 s&w. The frame iand such is very close to the Beretta 90 series and thats what i really like about it.
Pickin it up this Saturday ...once i shoot it ill post how it performed which i think will be very satifactory....

Beretta vs Clock

I also enjoy my new Beretta and it is a cheap and reliable shooter .... I highly recommend this pistol.
Also; not to highjack this thread but I see other companies promoting in same way there larger models in cal.22 - here in Sweden the Glock G44 in 22.cal is coming strong .... just show it doesn't have to big calibres to have fun.

Beretta M9A1-22 Failure to cycle

I just purchased a Beretta M9A1 and the 1st 2 or 3 times that I took it to the range
it cycled beautifully with no problems, the next time out started not to cycle the round every four or five rounds.
went home cleaned the pistol and a week later or so went back to the range and it just refused to cycle the rounds and lock the slide back on the last round, tried several different types of ammo with no luck, had to manually pull the slide back to cycle the rounds.
Sent it back to Beretta, been there 6 weeks now, called them maybe another week or so..
Has anyone else run into this problem, if so what was the cause.
thank you

My M9-22 had a failure of the decocking mechanism and it took 6 months to get the gun back from Beretta. Apparently parts had to come from Germany. Great gun though.

I think one can thank/blame Kel-Tec for that. Wither the PMR30 & their CP33, they've raised the bar in rimfire mag capacity, IMO.

I have a M9-22 waiting at a FFL for me to get next weekend. I got the unrailed version as I like the balance better.

Yeah, they're out of the GSG/Umarex conglomerate if I'm not mistaken. Spare parts won't get here fast in these covid days.

Well, one has to admit they've got some serious competition. The Ruger has been around for 50 years or so, sold millions. The Buckmark has been around for however long it has & is the best commonly made .22LR for under $8-900. The Smith 41 has its share of owners, albeit it's expensive. Then there's all the older models from Browning, Colt, High Standard, etc.

A rimfire really has to bring something to the table in order for it to be successful. Something unique, exceptional or downright odd, IMO.
