Berretta 950 Jetfire .25

Anyone know where I can find a set of grips at for this gun? The top corner of the grip broke when my father used it last and the slide spring keeps popping out causing it to jam. He's had this gun for 30 years and it's getting a little rough. I looked all over the Internet and everyone is out of stock and on back order. Is beretta not making these anymore or is this gun just really popular?

Does the gun have a manual safety? If so, the grips will be different from the Italian-made ones without the safety.

GPC AKA Numrich should have them. Have seen some wood ones on Ebay and Gunbroker. Use to be a "Vintage Grips" website that made a lot of old reproductions in black plastic.

950 BS

Love this 20 year old gun, but does anyone know how to reduce the trigger pull? seems like around 12 pounds on S.A.! Hammer cock takes a lot of effort also-are these related?

My Bobcat is anything but junk, AND I would rather have the option of DA or cocked and locked.

New grips come up all of the time on eBay. Just make sure you get the correct grips depending on whether you have an older Italian gun without a safety or a US produced gun with the safety.

BTW, mine a 950BS, is a great little gun. it can be a bit picky about ammo but once you find the right ones you are good to go.

Never run across a picky 950. They've all fed any brand of ball I put in it.

I have the 950 B and BS Minx in .22 short. Never tried to get new grips, but altamont always seemed to have the best price for the best grip, if you want aftermarket grips.

Yes and I have the model 20 and 2 of the 21 's But the 21's are thicker and weight more that the 950 jetfire. 950 a better pocket pistol. Its thin and lite weight The model 20 is the best compromise as its still thin and lite weight. use the 950 mags but has the DA/SA.
