    I hope the attachment shows up. I have a chance to purchase what I was told was a Bersa model 226 ( see photo) . I cannot find anything on the internet about this model. It has a threaded barrel. Can anyone tell me what this gun model is and what it could be worth, Thanks in advance.

    I could not find year of MFG. From the looks of the pics and if the piece works well, You should be able to get the 22 for 225.00 to 275.00 .

    Welcome to the forum. I could not find anything either. I will check a few reference books I have later. Sounds like a good buy if it works like the guy said it does.

    An old .22 with a treaded barrel? Makes me wonder about its history. If it were me, I'd hold on to it while doing deeper research. That's just me, though.

    I can tell you right off the bat it is worth $200, if it shoots. The threaded barrel, if its history proves interesting, will only add to its value. If the threaded barrel was just something a recreational shooter did, its still a good good for $200.

    Now, lets keep in mind that I do watch too many movies, okay? But to me... an old .22 pistol with a threaded barrel? The first thing that comes to mind is military or government assassinations.
