I wasn't clear about frame sizes,,,

What I should have said was,,,
I thought the frames were interchangeable.

The reason is I had a gunsmith tell me that,,,
You could swap internals and the slide onto either frame.

He said if I wanted to,,,
I could buy a newer "FS" frame,,,
And swap my model 87 innards & frame onto it.

Again, not that I would ever do it,,,
But if it's true I find it puzzling that Beretta,,,
Would keep making the two different frame styles.

I would have thought that using one frame style for all of their Cheetah pistols,,,
Would make more sense from a cost of manufacturing standpoint.

Unless of course the smith was in error.
