Think i got a lemon..

Post by Derrick87 » Wed Jun 26, 2013 7:20 am

So on impulse (was in a rush to) i bought a Beretta 21a used it seemed fine at the gun shop and it was at a good price but when i got home and inspected her more i can see that someone dry fired the H%@& out of it with what looks like someone took a punch and hit the tip of the chamber of the barrel also the rifling is almost nonexistent man im kinda upset about it lol ill try and post some pics soon

Anyone who is in to .22 rimfires for life should own one of these tools.

Regarding the shallow rifling, it doesn't take much depth to work and it is nearly impossible to wear out a steel barrel with soft lead bullets. Unless your bullets are key-holing, fuggedaboudit.

Use hotter ammo the 21a doesnt seem to like the weak stuff.
