FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Beretta 950 Jetfire is a simple, direct blowback pistol, chambered in 6.35mm (.25 ACP) and .22 Short, with a single-action trigger mechanism and tip-up barrel, manufactured in Italy and Brazil from 1952 till 2003.
The frame is made out of aluminum alloy and the slide and barrel are carbon steel.
Early models (pre-1968) do not have a manual safety lever, employing an inertial firing pin for safe hammer-down carry instead.
The Beretta 950 Jetfire chambered in .25 ACP is a backup, self-defense pistol that is intended for undercover agents, police officers or individuals as a concealed firearm for self-defense.
The tip-up barrel makes it easy to make safe and at the same time, easy to make ready to fire, especially for people who find it difficult to rack the slide of a small sized pistol.
The pistol does not have an extractor and relies on blowback pressure to eject the spent cases.
If a case does not extract it can be manually removed by tipping up the barrel and pulling it out.
This gun is in fair to good, used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
The original finish is still good with some very light wear along the edges of the frame and trigger guard, and a few tiny, light scratches on the front-strap of the grip.
The original plastic grips are very lightly scratched in places but still in good condition.
The action still feels very tight.
.22 Short is an extremely small, soft caliber and should not be considered seriously as being an effective or suitable caliber for self-defense, however technically speaking there are no restrictions or specifications on caliber size when applying for a self-defense license.
This pistol is suitable as a fun gun for simple target shooting and plinking at the range, and is also an excellent tool for teaching handgun shooting and fundamentals of basic marksmanship to young or beginner shooters.
It may also have some collectors value.
