      Thats a nice looking pistol. Congats, you can go to Beretta's website to determine date of manufacture.

      No, that is a refinish. Beretta never released a 92 in that color. I wish they would, though.

      Inox, black/bruniton, blue steel once upon a time, and a limited time green. Only colors 92 has everyone in factory wise

      Thank you for the info i actually watched some you tube videos of gun owners using these kits to refinish them I'm going to look into doing this myself do you know where i can find full how to fully take apart the slide and the receiver to prep and paint it? Any info would be great thank you so much.

      Nice first pistol! You started out right, but then again, I tend to be a little bias when it comes to Beretta pistols.

      For best work, have someone else who does it full time do it. Trust me. First attempt doesn't always come out perfect from what I have read

      Thanks guys again for the great info I'm still having some trouble finding out more about these compacts I heard beretta didn't even bother telling people they made them and Beretta USA doesn't acknowledge they were even made until recently with the new release of the compact. i still don't know why this gun is this color and Im trying to find Out also who makes a good inside the waist holster? I work as a gun range officer and I carry my 92f in a Blackhawks holster but I also want to conceal carry and holster ideas guys? Any info would be great thanks again sorry for replying so late lost my phone. Lol

      Nice first purchase brohymn! You got a really good deal. I bought my first semi-auto of the Beretta selection myself. PX4 Storm 9mm Full size edition and I'm pleasantly happy to put it lightly.

      You did well my friend and welcome to the board!

      Philly? Sure hope you are a Flyers fan too

      I'm headed up that way for the Flyers Carnival soon.

      Anyway, now that you have had the gun a couple of months - I hope you enjoy shooting it.
