For about what you're willing to pay, you should be able to snag a Beretta 92FS with just a bit more cash.
The 92FS is a true world-class firearm. It has a proven track record. I admit to being a Beretta fan, and I have all the right reasons in the world to be one.
If you can, buy new and not used. There are some very good used ones out there, but in all reality, the $$ difference isn't all that much. About 8 months ago, I bought a brand-new 92FS for $499.00.
They are out there, and can be had. You buy the Beretta and you'll be glad that you did.
Another issue is US vs. Italian made Beretta. The Italian made version might run a bit more, but I buy them whenever I can or have a choice.
