    What is it for???

    I don't own a Beretta so someone who does can probably answer my question. What is the blue round plastic thing with the logo on it that comes with a new pistol. I am clueless.

    I just got a beretta px4. It came with the thingamajigger you are describing. I have no friggin clue what it is for. I asked my dealer what it was and he told me, "well its a spacer, of course". and then he laughed, because he had no idea what it was. The only thing I can think of is maybe you could use it to hold parts during dissasembly/assembly. I would love to know the answer to this question.

    falchunt, I bet you are right. I guess you could just shoot at it.

    I suppose you probably could, being that it isn't necessary for the function of the gun, as far as I can tell. But I do still want to know what it is for. I am interested to see what kind of responses we get on here.

    Ok, so I talked to a couple of friends who are quite avid shooters, one of which was as clueless as i. But the other one suggested that the plastic piece will fit nicely into the chamber while it is open, allowing you to close the chamber on the plastic piece. He does not have a Beretta, but he says he has gotten similar hardware with all of his handguns. I have never tried to fit the plastic thingamajig in the chamber, but I believe it would fit.

    That sounds like it would make sense. If I get one, it's a dead man.

    Are you talking about the little cup looking thing?


    If so this was what I found on it at the Beretta Forum

    the famous Beretta shotglass/jello-mold/partscup/ashtray.
    Honestly, I think it's just a filler in the case to help keep things from rattling around, but who knows. I think jello-mold fits it best.

    ETA: I think I found the purpose:

    the anti-crush cup.

    might be a piece that is intended to be chambered, and lets a small tab sticking out to indicate that the chamber is being blocked by it.... I think one of my guns came with one of those, not a Baretta, though

    Yeah, it's just in there to provide some crush resistance. I don't know if they all get that or not, I saw it mentioned that only the imported guns have those, I know my 92FS did not have that thing.

    So the round plastic piece is protecting the steel/polymer framed gun from crushing? These manufacturers really come up with some doozies...

    I think it's more to protect the box than the gun. I'd be a little skeptical of buying a buying a gun with a crushed box.

    I agree. Could also keep the magazines from getting squashed. I think the gun's safe.

    Very good point. I would really have to look everything over good if I was looking at a product with a crushed box. Thanks for the perspective guys.
