Since I fell in love with my Beretta .22, I bought a Taurus knock-off for my mother. It was a total POS. A round actually got stuck in the barrel, luckily I noticed it and did not send a 2nd round down the pipe. And yes, I know that is a ammo issue, but the thing was just junk. I like their revolvers and the 24/7 id 'decent', other than that I stay far away from Taurus. Been there, done that.I had one of the Taurus copies of that Beretta. It would feed anything, including Win. Wildcat cheapie ammo. But accuracy was terrible with all ammo I tried. If I wanted to hit near the bulls-eye, I had to aim at the top right corner of the target. I always wondered if it was just the Taurus, or if such a short barrel just couldn't hit anything accurately more then a couple feet away. I'd like to try a Beretta, just haven't wanted to spend the money and get similar results.
I've never seen anyhting like that. man I love guns, they come in so many shapes and sizes!I had that same Beretta 22. It was unique and sweet little thing. I highly recommend them for people with arthritis who cannot rack the slide on an "average" handgun, since the barrel tips up for easy loading.
Surprisingly reliable for a single stack .22. Never had a problem. With it, or with different brands of ammo.
