I think it could be done, but it would cost a fortune and maybe not be a replica.

Min review and range report on new noise maker.

I picked up a new Bersa Thunder 22 pistol. I've wanted a Walther PP in .22lr for some time, however one has never crossed my path, so when I saw the Bersa in the case, I snapped it up.







All in all a nice little pistol. The double action trigger is long, yet smooth, and the single action trigger is short, light and crisp. The pistol is quite compact, yet still offers a good size grip. I tried two different types of bulk pack .22 ammo in this pistol, Federal and Remington Golden Bullets, both worked great.

Pics of the targets shot with the golden bullets. All targets were shot at 7 yards.

1st target



Each target is a tracing of a half dollar.



Another nice thing about this pistol is how easy it field strips. Drop the mag, flip the take down lever down, pull the slide to the rear and lift up and off.



Another reason I was drawn to the Thunder 22 was the fact that it makes a superb trainer for my brides nightstand pistol, a CZ83. The look and feel very much alike and both are single/double action.



For the $279 + tax I spent for this little gun, I feel I got my money's worth.

To sum it up.

The Cons:

Mags are kinda pricy and hard to come by.
Aftermarket is pretty much non existent.

The Pros:

Reliable with all ammo I've tried. (Rem Golden Bullets, Federal Bulk, Minimags, Stingers)
Accurate
Fun to shoot

I like my Ruger LCR .38 +P. Not as much "stopping power" but a lot nicer to carry than my .40 Glock.

Yes and no. The magazine was used for the grips, the firing pin for the small pins and just about everything else just pulled out and/or off.

And what caliber. .45LC seems most appropriate, but .38SPL is so cheap!

I have the Uberti in 45 Colt, and it's a great gun. I don't know anything about the Laramie but it looks nice too. The cosmetics of the Uberti are uber cool with the case-hardened bits. It's really beautiful up close.
