    So my friend has this Beretta 950B 22 short pistol that he got form his grandfather only it doesn't cycle properly. He has decided it's the barrel but can't seem to find one (or maybe hasn't looked very hard). I would like to get him one for X-mas as I owe him for helping me out in some tough times this year.

    Any ideas on where i should look? Is that something i need to get through a dealer or can I get a barrel shipped to me without hassle? Thanks!

    Is he qualified in deciding it's the barrel that's making it malfunction? Take it to a gunsmith before you blow money on a new barrel.

    Might sound stupid, but has he tried cleaning it?

    I have no idea where to look but you shouldn't need to go through a dealer for just a barrel.

    its probably filthy as shit. i highly doubt a .22short barrel is shot out.

    He has cleaned it and no it's not exactly shot out, it's an issue with the throat on it we think. The problem is it's not loading the round properly from the magazine. I suppose it might be fixed by a little polishing on the ramp and a new magazine maybe.... He had decided he wanted a new barrel and so I was going to get him one, I just wasn't sure where to look.

    What kind of ammo is he using? If it's something shitty, tell him to get better ammo. Those little beretta's dont have extractors, it uses the force of the gas to push the shell back out of the barrel and out of the gun. If that doesnt solve the problem, along with a good cleaning, then I'd take it to a gun smith and have it checked out.

    edit - i didnt read the thread :o

    Buy a new magazine and polish the feed ramp
