Hey that looks a lot like mine. Have you removed the mag safety yet? First thing I did when I got the gun.

Oh that's it!
I have to have one!

I always did like that gun. I started to order one once, but settled for the 85F .380. Why, I don't know (although it was a really good gun, especially as 380s go).

I think it's an ideal sized .22 pistol, suppressed or not. It's big enough to be dependable, and to hang onto, but not as bulky as typical plinker/target .22s. I wish it held more ammo, but what the heck.

What's the procedure for suppressor mounting? Have someone like TROS thread it, and make an adapter?

I think I'm getting moist.
Shhhhhh

Hey wolffie, where did you get the adapter and the work done on your 87T? though some may think it is ugly, I like the looks of it.

I'll send it to you in a PM. I am one of those who thinks it's ugly, the threader is well liked on this board, and I don't want to start an arguement for criticizing the work. It's functional, the work was priced well, but it's too big. The adapter actually throws off the balance of the gun more than the suppressor. I will be sending it off to have a new one made sooner or later.

In retrospect, I had high expectations for threading of such a high priced gun. I got what I paid for, so I'm not upset. I just know that next time I need to spend a little more money, and only spend it once.

So who would you recommend that would do work on this pistol that would present a superior product? And by the way, does it suppress well?

It suppresses incredibly well, and I'd heartily recommend it. The nicest work with the 87T that I've seen was done by TROS and Keuhl. Parshooter on AR15.com had TROS do his. I was scared of the wait time at TROS. I'd start with those two. I'm probably going to contact Todd Orander about making a smaller adapter for mine, and may even put one of the moly finishes on it to match the gun. He does superb threading, and I would expect top notch work if he'll do it.

The lesson I learned from this was that I should have specified exactly what I wanted. I just asked the gentleman to thread it and make an adapter, so he had no idea of my expectations.

I should add. To thread this gun, the barrel has to be removed from the aluminum upper. Beretta uses some sort of adhesive to keep it in place, so it has to be heated to soften the glue, then pressed out.

The barrel is then turned down and threaded. The adapter then has to be fit to the inside diameter of the slide. It's a bit of work.

You are damn sure right on that one!!!! WTF was that guy on? Not wanting to hijack the thread, but that guy needs to remove the tin foil helmet and step out of his self-made spaceship.

And I was just kidding about the CCBP comment....

There are a lot of cool things about the 87T. It's very accurate. On a par with my Woodsman Match Target. It feels very good in the hand. Trim, light weight and it balances extemely well. The controls are very much like a 1911, very intuitive if you're used to them. The barrel shroud is squared at the bottom, so if you don't have a suppressor attached to it, and your adapter is properly small, it will stand upright on a shooting bench. If you want to put a dot on it, the rail is built in.

The slide sits in a position so that it is convenient to drag your thumb on it for "single shot" use if you want uber quiet.

The downside is the trigger. It's light and crisp, but the overtravel is rather long. That can be fixed with a trigger job, or various shade tree methods.

They had two new guns in stock at Sportsmans Warehouse and I brought one home with me.

Yes, but they are doing Colt style production runs with it though. I doubt it sells well when the fugly neos is half the price. People who aren't rimfire enthusiasts seem to balk at expensive .22's. Make my next .22 rifle a Cooper please. :wink:

Every time they do a production run and flood the market with them, it seems I'm out of money. When I'm flush, they are everywhere. There are 87T's to be had currently, but they will dry up for a while later this year.

First post here fellows... Joined a moment ago. Great to be on board!

Mr. Fargo... That black Beretta looks good enough to eat! Is that an 87 .22LR? What suppressor is that! Looks like a quality made can. Almost Brugger & Thomet-like with that beautiful finish. Would love to know who makes this can as I have a beautiful Beretta 87 en route and would like to reproduce this photo to a "T"! :mrgreen:

Kind regards,

Thank you, Bender! You just beat me to the punch. Searched Fargo's posts and googled the outback from one of his comments. Wonder if the Outback is still around without the upgrade?

What upgrade are you referring to?
