I use a LaserMax LMS-1441 Guide Rod laser, Elite II extended mag release, and skeletonized hammer as well as Hogue panel style grips. I am on my second recoil spring, Wolff, and the mags I have are factory and those I have been given by the local USMC Reserve unit. They shoot at our range and I served in the USMC. The Beretta is a very servicable handgun and contrary to the "Seal Stories" which did apply to early generation units are very safe and have a long carry life. I shoot about 500 rounds a month or better on the average.
