I want a Beretta but...

Lots of holster wear, pristine bore is about the usual. Last two Berettas I purchased were 81s. They ran $200 each. one had some light surface rust and holster wear. The other might as well have been NIB. I look for LE turn in Berettas. I have 2 from the Italian prisons and 1 from the Italian police. Nice guns, and cheap.

I have several other Berettas as I am a bit of a Beretta fiend.

IMO if you want a beretta the other is a stopgap measure that will cost more money in the long run. Because I would end up with the beretta and resale on Taurus is not good.

Got this a month ago off of GunBroker for a winning bid of $347(+$40 2nd-day shipping) After a $30 FFL transfer fee(+$10 BGC), total cost to me = $427. I found that to be a very reasonable OTD price for an almost LNIB 92FS. It came with 3 mags(one extended)

Shop around OP. Good things come to those willing to wait.

Awesome deal !
That looks like it has a "parallel dust cover" like a non-FS model.
FS usually has the downward-sloped dust cover.
Are you sure it's an FS ?
Might be an early civvie M9.

Not without paying. Can be done for $75. I am debating doing it on mine. However, I wonder how much some white nail polish on the front sight would help.
Last time I checked, there wasn't enough meat on the slide to cut a dovetail.
And then there was someone that does a "piggy-back" front sight, but the cost was too high, IMO.
White on the sight does help, I used a silver marker with a fine tip.
You have to be careful when cleaning or you will take it off.

I have a nice 92S that I will probably sell off eventually.

I don't know if they use a dovetail. It would of course be possible to use some other styles, but I have found a company that modifies them for $75. Personally, I think I should try put the white nail polish on mine first.

I hope it's OK to say this here, but since it's on topic I will... I just posted a 92s with 5 magazines in the classifieds ($400).

Wanting a beretta but buying/using the Taurus is like going on a date with a hot woman vs watching a video of a hot woman on your computer
