Our Assessment:  Beretta is one of the oldest, time-tested, known, trusted, loved, and used brands of firearms in the world.  The company has been in operation since the early years of the 1500’s and has had a clean production record of high quality goods that has helped raise the standard for what a good quality firearm can really be.  The better the quality of a firearm, the greater the potential.  Beretta has always sought to see firearms reach their full potential which is why in 1985 the U.S. adopted the Beretta 92FS – Renamed the M9 and modified with less safety features – as the military’s standard service pistol.  The Beretta 92FS is still used to this day by many countries as their standard military sidearm and the M9 kept its status as the U.S. military’s standard service pistol till recently in 2017 when it was replaced by the SIG P320, a worthy successor which is only a testament to the M9 success over the years.  Claim this beautiful pistol still with its original packaging and bring home one of the most loved standard military service pistols the world has ever known.  Happy Bidding! – L.S.
