    Any concerns regarding a Beretta 96? I just picked one up and I was wondering if there's anything I should be worried about? Anyone with experience owning one? Thanks

    Beretta's are solid pistols. They have been making pistols for over 100 years. Join berettaforum.net and learn more...

    I've owned one for 10 years, and have shot well over 5k rounds through it. NO problems NO worries. Just make sure to keep some kind of lubrication on the outside of the barrel where it rides in the frame.

    Just picked up my first Beretta yesterday, the 92A1, looks sweet but heavy with my TLR-1 riding on it.

    Also, anyone know of a good site to find custom parts such as, barrels, triggers and such for this model?

    Thanks!

    Brownells carries all your Beretta needs. You can also check out the Beretta shopping site, it has some items as well.

    Thank you good sir,
    I'm aware of both just checking to see if there are any else.
    I have a tendency to replace all sub-par parts with high quality custom parts.
    Such as the cheesy plastic guide rod that it comes with.

    I, too, was thinking of replacing the plastic guide rod and the recoil spring as well. I just feel no need to since the gun I purchased appears to be a safe queen for the most part. I have a 96 Centurion with wood grips.
