Beretta Olympia 22

9 posts in this topic

I was browsing some of the firearms YouTubers I haven't looked at in a bit when I came across this very interesting rifle.

Bolt AND semi 22!  Beretta Olympia.

A very nice looking rifle with classic wood stock with nice looking old school checkering manufactured in the 1950s & 1960s.

Military surplus available for sale through J&G Sales.

Thought some of you might be interested.

It was also brought up on another thread too. I found it to be cool enough to order one and then I found an original rear Diopter Sight. Both have shipped. Thanks for giving it it's own thread. Also thanks to WP22 for posting that there is a $40 off coupon Olympia40 that brings total shipped to $380. Rear Diopter is nearly as expensive as the rifle. There are also aftermarket scope mounts that can be purchased for around $100 shipped.

Now be a sweetheart and find some cheap mags. I'm not liking having to pay 45.00 each for 10 rounders.

So I got mine on Saturday. Thank you @Oakridgefirearms for doing the transfer. Tom is a good guy and not only I'll use him again, I'll also recommend him.

Anyway, like a dope I didn't take any pictures.

The guts are fine; no rust and weren't messed with, that I could tell, at least.

The action is smooth. The crown is perfect.

The bore isn't bright/shiny/new  but looked perfect. The riffling looked sharp, too.

Overall the steel is in very good shape.

The wood on the other hand. Chips, divots and cuts are expected. But the finish is just too far gone.

I may have to commit a sacrilege and refinish the stock.

Did yours have a Diopter base? I requested one but didn't get one.

    • I apologize if my posts were taken the wrong way. But yours were also much more adversarial than they needed to be.  I suggest we drop it since further posts like that on either side don’t help anything.    As for Reloaderz. I hope they do well. NJ needs more ranges, of any and all types. Anything to expand the positive visibility and push back against the perceived stigma firearms have in this state. 
    •  that writer should be that writer should be embarrassed, you don't pick 3 handguns with a life of less than three years and claim that they are part of the best ever. I'm absolutely going to agree with the Glock just in terms of shears numbers in use reliability and other variables but the Sig the Smith & Wesson and the Heckler LOL  did you read the did you read the article? They gave the reasoning why and hard to argue against it actually.
    • Wow, vaguley remember it... was it when the gun first came out? Generally though, I think the Neos, as cool as it is, was too "atypical" in a crowded marketplace dominated by the Buckmark, Ruger and to lower extent the S&W Victory/22a models. Once you go into higher end, like SW 41 and dedicated 22lr competition guns, no contest there. 




    • Oh Rosey!! You're my fav!
      I had to clarify because my phone was blowing up with notifications because I missed one word: "field" before strip.
      The banter won't scare me off, I'm a little more thick skinned than that! In response to spending more quality time together, I'll only agree if it means busting clays!

      And a happiest of thanksgivings to your beautiful wife and family and of course that fluffy kitten of yours!

      Love,
      Rhi

    • 5 best?  In terms of what? If it was significance to gun industry, yes, would agree. But best from shooting and commercial success?  I would have an issue with the HK VP70 and P38. It is tough to argue the significance of the Luger, BHP, Beretta 92 or the Glock 17. I would probably add the HK P7 PSP to that list and would easily prefer it over the VP70.
