Beretta Owners Wanted!

    Anyone out there with any model Beretta pistol, please consider joining this effort at forming a group for mutual information and support. Despite all the Berettas I saw in the hands of our military and various law enforcement members around the world, and the general popularity of the company products here in the U.S., I find some products are not readily found for some of the models. My own 84F being an example, it is so easy to carry I forget I have it tucked IWB, day in and day out, but good luck finding a laser sight for it!

    When I get a decent digital photo of this weapon, I will post it, but for now have used a generic-model 84F photo as the group icon.

    Ok I'll pony up one. I've owned a 92FS for several years now. I've slightly modified it by adding the Burris FastFire II Reflex sight. Though it complicates holstering; it improves my accuracy. Cheers.

    I am pretty sure I will be an owner soon. I have (2) old Berretas in my possession that I am thinking about buying. Both are 70 Series. The Model 76 I field stripped cleaned (dusty) and lubed and will test fire it tomorrow. I have a problem with the Model 72 (also cleaned and lighty used) but the take down lever was very stiff so I cycled the slide as the data I got for it off the 'web' said to do and it moved, albiet, stiffly. Well it released about 1/2 inch and is now stuck, won't close back down or open up the rest of the way to field strip. Any ideas how to get it working (if in fact it was working) again?

    Thanks in advance I really want to grab these two but now am a little concerned.

    Love my Px4 9mm so much I bought the SC version for CC. Finding IWB holster is still hard. Any suggestions?

    Winter carry (OWB DeSantis Speed Scabbard) is my PX4 in .40...
    I have no idea why, but I love this firearm! It shot well out-of-the-box and has NEVER misfired or stovepiped - not a single time with over 2500 rounds and a variety of ammo through it. The only thing I have done to it is to install some Triijicon Night Sights.

    Hello I own a Model 96 FS Inox. My wife carries a model 86 Cheetah. We love them both. I probably have about 5000 rounds though the Model 96.

    I have an 8040 Cougar (.40 Sw) that I've had for several years. Carry it in a paddle holster by Kramer. I started bowling pin shooting with recently, love it . Never had any problems with it, keep it cleaned and oiled. I was lucky enough to get 3 extra 12 round mags from Beretta on sale @ a very good price!
    I might go up to a Model 96 for a larger frame, longer barrel for the pin shooting,?dunno

    Jim in Mich: My own 84FS was used but hardly ever fired and stiff as heck. First time, could barely release the take down lever, then it got worse. I soaked it in a 'teflon oil' as found in a needle-tip "precision oiler". Tapped on the axis of the lever's "pin" with a small soft-face hammer (a piece of pine and a small tack hammer would do it too) just for a bit of vibration. I let it sit overnight and it very reluctantly began to move. I carefully used a cloth and wood pusher until soon it freed up entirely and became super-smooth and take down was easy. I don't have that same oil now, but any good penetrating oil can soak in within 6-8 hours, but goes in better if the weapon isn't in a cold place.
    Apologies for not monitoring this as I should. I am now overseas and don't always have time or internet ... Llama

    I love my 92FS but it's too large for concealed carry so I take it to the range and everyone who shoots it loves it and says "I've got to get one of these!".

    I have a 9000S in 9mm, which is a compact, and love the way it shoots. It is consistently the most accurate handgun I own. The main problem has been the lack of magazines. I finally converted an extended 92 magazine and cut down a regular 92 adapter to fit the 9000 and it works. I have it as my primary "at home" protection because, although it fits my hand perfectly, the handle is bulky to fit in a concealed carry position. I have 2 single stack Rugers I use for concealed carry, one 9mm and one .40. Does anyone know of a single stack Beretta in either 9mm or .40 SW cal. that is equivalent in size to the Ruger SR Compacts or the S&W Shields compacts?
