Where did you find that. I got mine in box but no instructions and no base. How much was it if you don't mind me asking? After shipping, buying base, and conversion fees I was out nearly $400

I must shamefully admit that it was a friend from Brescia who knows that I tend to collect anything vaguely metallic and firearms related, who found this in his family home (who knows the original source? some warehouse leftover at Beretta or at a subcontractor? Really it will rimain a mistery) and gave it to me as a present.

The real expense came when, after a few years having it sitting in a drawer, I came across an old battered Olimpia that I overpaid 200 €uros + 10 €uros worth of kerosene to clean it.

The carbine came out nice and smoothly working with an excellent barrell, athough the blueing on the outside of the barrell is nearly nonexistent.

It had just one 10 round magazine, but I managed with some luck to find the complete set (5, 10 and 20 rounder) for a reasonable 120 €uros.

Unhappy

Hi kadima.

Out of interest, where did you manage to get your magazines from? I've been looking for a while, and so far all I've found is TripleK.com. But they want $44 per mag and to charge $35 for shipping across the Atlantic to the UK.

Ciao Moff,
well, in Italy the Olimpia was ubiquitous in the shooting ranges around the country. So, even if Beretta hasn't been servicing or making parts for Olimpias for decades. there are still enough spares around.
The set I managed to acquire were NOS in the inventory of a closed gun shop. Magazines aren't a regulated part here, so they ended up sold as not exactly cheap scrap metal and I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time.

It must be said that the design of the Beretta Olimpia magazine is quite common, so by looking around one can find a magazine for another 22LR rifle that can fit with minimal modifications.

Just to prove it could be done we managed at my shooting range to swap magazined between a Beretta Olimpia and a TOZ 18.

You've inspired me. The Smith & Wesson Model 41 magazine looks very similar. Maybe all I need to do is file a magazine detent into the back edge of it...

It's funny how the Beretta Supersports and Olimpias were produced in prodigious quantities but are hardly known at all outside Italy.

Anyway... now where did I put my set of files...?
