BERETTA cal. 22 lr Model 89 Standard

89 Standard

The new "Standard" from Beretta



The new.22 LA model 89 'Standard`, designed for both competition and range training, features many interesting innovations.
A fixed monoblock barrel cold hammered and machined from a single forged steel block; this is locked in position through the counterweight, and thus avoids barrel frame interplay at any time.
Safety on either side, to cater for left handed shooters.

Rear sight is easily ad or adjustable for both windage and elevation; front sight is interchangeable. Altogether; line of sighting is all of 185 mm. long.

Other basic features of the new model 89 Standard are a very fine light and crisp trigger pull, with a finely adjustable length of the trigger after run.

The frame is made from a Zirconium Aluminum alloy, further treated to give steel strength and durability with 65% less weight.

Walnut semi anatomical grips are standard; on request, anatomical walnut grips can be chosen among three different designs, better to suit particular hand features.
