I had the 22 with the longer barrel and a 380. Good little gun. I carried the 380 for a long time.

I recently sold a 70S .380 , and I hope the buyer appreciates it. I think the Beretta 70 series pistols are the sexiest looking pistols ever made ! <3

Default Beretta Model 70

Mine is the "New Puma", .32 acp. I acquired it in 1967. Has the push through button safety, 1 original 8-rnd mag. original box and bore cleaning brush. Aftermarket replacement mags. (that fit) are impossible to find at any price.

This feeds perfectly on any ammo.

Here she is.

These have recently been imported into the U.S. (/22, short barrel)with a faux suppressor attached to be approved, I've heard the faux suppressor is easily removed by a gunsmith? I've heard they come from Israel? I bought one of the first to come in, I've hunted for one ever since I sold one in the 1960s. Check with SOG, Sarco or Zander's for them.
To the poster saying there's a problem with the slide hold open spring, that's the magazine spring, is it not? Also, I bought a spare magazine off the internet(Bob's gun parts), recently.

As to spare magazines, if you can find mags for Bersa 644, they also work in my M71's . I have several of those mags in service.

Default Beretta mod. 70s

I am new to the site and was going through the beretta forum and was glad to see your post. I have a mod. 70s cal .380 I bought new in 1977. I know you have not had your 70s for a long time but maybe you have learned enough to help me or perhaps you could put me in touch with the original owner. I shot up a box of ammo the other day and when I got home sat down to clean up. I pushed on the latch release button, but it would not move(not any). so I used the strength of both my thumbs, still no movement. I messed with that thing until I actually cut my thumb on the surrounding metal recess. in my clean up box I had steel dowel small ball peen hammer.i I tapped a couple times, with no authority fearing damage, still nothing. I turned the gun over to the right side. I pushed the slide to the rear until the recess on the bottom was over the disassembly latch and I turned it in the counterclockwise direction. I could feel the pressure from the spring (no good) so I let it return to its normal position.i have to free up the release button. help of any kind would be great.

Hello dears
I have just bought beretta 70 .22lr but the spring of the slide catch is not working that well , i think its not the original one so i hope if someone could show me a photo for the original spring so i can simulate one
Also i wan ask about my front sight which looks kinda wearied !!! Its stuck to the slide not to the barrel and a crack is presented just near to it
Although the pistol is pretty accurate ?

This Beretta's front sight is integral to the slide. The slide stop spring is a flimsy design. It failed in my 71 also.

A beat-up old 22 pistol is almost never a good buy. The Israelis decommissioned this model long time ago.
