Trying to learn more about the Baretta 92, 9mm that I purchased in 1987 at Baumholder Germany at the Rod and Gun club.

sn: B16369
Only “BARRETA” on slide
Pistol grips blank.
Lower magazine release

I have the box somewhere.
I have Military Police paperwork for bringing it to USA.

Please advise

Nick

On a further note the SN will be on the
left side of the frame and that number on the frame comes back as: Serial Number: R16369
Model: JSU2206
Product Description: U22 NEOS 22LR 6.0" 10-RD SPC
Approximate Manufacture Date: 2009
Parts Listing: Parts
Owners Manual: Manual
Product Brochure or Literature: Brochure

Barrel: P82-BARREL,ASSY,6 Inch,NEOS

Not knowing more I believe something was fishy in Germany? That may be a Baretta after all? Shipwreck would know but maybe a Brazilian made 92? BTW, I was stationed in Nurnburg Germany Merrill Barracks in the 3/5 field artillery in 1987, we ran the 8 inch M110 howitzers.

Here is better picture of SN. It’s clearly B16369

the magazines it cam with show only B.CAL. 9 PAR

The slide only shows BARETTA

I headed to garage to find box and paperwork.

19766

Production of the original "92" (i.e. slide mounted safety) began in May 1976, and ended in February 1983. Approximately 7,000 units were of the first "step slide" design and 45,000 were of the second "straight slide" type.

That being said the pistol you show does not have PIETRO BERETTA nor Gardone V.T. on its slide(place of manufacture) coupled with the fact the SN comes back a 45LC off Beretta's website, likewise, I would believe a Beretta made 92 would have its serial number end in "Z." This all leads me to believe it is probably a Brazilian made 92. As far as what I've heard Brazilian made 92's are of high quality.

dupla ação on the box is Portuguese meaning double action. I'm thinking your pistol is a Brazilian contract made Beretta 92 made on Beretta machines before they sold the machines to Brazil.

Thank you for the information. Yes, I believe now this is Brazilian surplus before contract in February 1980. I started searching for Brazilian factory info and found this to share.
