Really like my 71 once I got that giant fake suppressor removed. All I shoot is cheap bulk .22lr and it has never failed.

Mine has the 6" barrel, not as accurate as my High Standard, but pretty good for such a small pistol.
Cool history to them as well...

We don't have an EDC option in Canada, that luxury is reserved for criminals, not law abiding citizens... our government is a%s backwards, but don't get me started...

I have 6 different versions of the M70/71 and an M101. I guess you could say I like them a bit.

I bought one that is supposed to have been a former Isreali murder gun. They seem to run $350-$400 and are said to be the best SA 22 made and they may well be. I have wondered if they may have been slicked up prior to issue to the special ops people.

Great little pistol

I made a simple Kydex pocket holster for mine. I'm comfortable traveling with it.

The size and weight and fifty rounds in a little TSA compliant case makes a handy package.

One of the few guns I haven't felt the need to work on the trigger.

Glad to know I'm not alone. These include 32ACP and 380ACP also.

Beretta 70 series

Have a 70S, and it is the only 22 SA I own that has NEVER had a FTF/FTE, or malfunction of any kind. Only issue is with the adjustable sight, shoots a little high. Luckily, came with six magazines. Still looking fr more of the 70 series.
