I'm trying to get an idea of the value of a Mark XXII 22 semi auto, magazine clip, SN low 8000's, made in Italy, excellent condition, maybe 300 rounds fired.

If anyone has any history on this rifle that would be great.

Bruno:-)

It's a early, (1960's) Beretta made Mark XXII. It would have more value than the later Japanese and U.S. made ones. Haven't seen one sold in years. They were always very high quality expensive guns, selling for way more then the common .22 plinker of that era. Check the auctions and GOOGLE it, you might be able to get a idea on what they are bringing in the real world nowadays.

Hello I have two of these great rifles that were made in Italy. before Weatherby had them made in Japan only thing I would have different is The trigger guard is a pot metal casting. I have never had any semi auto 22 shoot as small of groups as these two rifles includeing some high end 10/22's You could not buy either of mine but I suggest $600.00 - $750.00 would be in the BALL-PARK.

My father bought me one of the Italian-made Mark XXIIs in about 1965. I recall that the SN was in the 8000s. The MSRP was $99.50. It came with five round and 10 round detachable magazines, a metal buttplate, a monte carlo stock with cheekpiece, very quality bluing, checkering, and gloss finish. It also had the single shot feature, which would leave the action open after the shot. It had a tang safety.

It was a very quality firearm, and ones in top condition should go for the price listed by the poster above.
