Beretta guys….school me.

Recommended Posts

Okay, since they make the 92G and the military M9 there, am I safe in assuming I can get a 92 marked Gallatin? I don’t want to pay hundreds extra for that marking as in the 92G Tennessee gun.

So you Beretta guys school me. What’s the difference in an M9 and a 92? I just want the Gallatin marking in the 92 style and don’t care about any military stuff.

Also, If I’m buying a blue/black gun, I want it to be a high polish blue/black; not some crummy matte or painted finish. Does Beretta do that at Gallatin on a standard gun?

This would be a range toy that would get used. I’m not going to try to carry it, and I’m not looking for a collectable.

Which Beretta do I need?

I am going to be off topic but it was a big deal for me and I thought I should share. I wanted the M9A3 marked Gallatin and got it. About eight or nine hundred rounds in the gun completely locked up. Turns out the rails on the frame were the lug on the bottom of the barrel rides were off somehow, they curled in and locked up the barrel. I sent it back and a month later they sent me a brand new gun but from Italy. My case may have been a one-off but it's definitely something to look out for or keep an eye on it least.

No need to get into any of the other stuff, you are done right there. All the black 92's currently offered are done in Bruniton finish, which is a matte black paint over a parkerized surface finish.

With military and police in mind, they didnt want a reflective surface. While some folks may like flashy shiny finishes, the last think you want is to get light reflecting of your flashy gun letting the bad guys now where they need to drop their fire.

      Picked this one up yesterday to replace the ECO I parted with to help fund a motorcycle purchase. Haven't had a chance to shoot it yet but hopefully soon!

      I inherited a original box stock 70 series, nickel plated, Colt Commander, 1911 in .45 ACP.
      When I received it the nickel plating looked horrible. Half of it had flaked off and there were a lot of mild, superficial rust spots. (no pitting.)
      I :
      cerakoted it Tungsten grey with black controls, etc.
      upgraded it to standard non-adjustable combat sights (rather than the tiny original sights.)
      installed a really nice wide profile beaver tail safety
      installed a long skeletonize trigger.
      What would be an approximation of its value now?  The cerakote and upgrades have just been done. The pistol has zero blems now.

      I have been told by someone that knows the region well and the language that the correct pronunciation for Canik is JAN-ick.
      That's all.
