Overall Condition: This handgun retains about 99% of its metal finish. There is no notable wear or damage, only light handling marks. The screw heads are sharp. The markings are clear. Overall, this pistol is in Excellent condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We did not fire this handgun. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: This pistol comes with a combination-locking Beretta Launch Edition leather-bound hard case, white cardboard sleeve with serial-matching label and a total of two 13-round magazines.

Our Assessment: Beretta has been around about as long as guns have, but that doesn’t mean they’re stuck in the past. The 80X Cheetah is a massive upgrade over the previous 84 line. It features better texturing in its Vertec grip frame, forward slide serrations, optics-ready slide, picatinny rail on the dust cover for mounting accessories, and more aggressive texturing in the grip straps. The Launch Edition is further embellished with an attractive bronze finish on the frame and comes with a nice leather-bound carry case. This example is in Excellent condition, appearing to have seen little if any use. It will make a great little shooter, but would also be a good add to a Beretta collection. Please see our pictures and good luck!
