Damn this thing is awesome.
Some fine Italian craftsmanship
The newer ones are made in the US but yeah, love Berettas
You can read “MADE IN ITALY” on the slide in the last shot. As I understand it, M9s are America, 92FS’s are Italian. And that’s pretty much the only difference between them.
oooh interesting, I dunno why I was under the impression that they were doing their whole line of pistols in the US.
A European company that can trace its roots to an order of hand cannons? They ain’t ever moving.
IIRC, the early M9’s were different from the 92FS’s of the period, but the improvements- the “Don’t hit SEALs in the face doohickey”- were rolled onto 92FS’s soon after.(via
