I don't know about Beretta's production scheduling but they aren't very customer oriented. I called them about a problem with a pistol that shot low, they didn't care at all. Already had my money. I bought a Novak rear sight and it's been a great pistol. It's a SS 92FS, about 11 years old, the didn't have the INOX name on it. Made in USA, no plastic parts on it, very good gun.
I wont buy another Beretta, I want to be treated like a customer. The other gun companies seem to appreciate my business or at least pretend to care.
