Beretta Steel I, has arrived :)

I've been wanting one of these for awhile, managed to find one last year and finally have it.

Gorgeous! Rare and beautiful is a great combination. Enjoy the best of the 92 series.

I'm curious... what does that weigh?

Definitely. I really like the finish of the Steel I. My Inox models are nice but the Steel I is atleast a step or two above

Morgo, what is the other blued one? seems like similar controls and such can't make out the rear of the frame looks more like the standard profile? I like the comp also.

Is that a 10/22 its laying on? Good taste sir!

Marquezj16 - I don't think they are overly common, not sure how many were made though.

Venom - Its the Beretta 92fs Combat



It's actually the Combat combo so I have the case with extra shorter barrel, to convert it to the Beretta 92fs Stock, plus additional sights etc


p.s good spot its a Ruger Charger Stock kit (i.e Nordic chassis, Magpul bits )

They haven't, all the standard models have the slide mounted safety.
Beretta just made a few variants that had a frame mounted safety.

Suuuweeeeeet. Love the non-dyslexic safety!

I bet it shoots like a dream too.
