I recently purchased an early beretta 92 with the heel magazine release. Looks to be in at least 98% condition and unfired. Has the step down on the slide. The bluing is deep and amazing. How many were imported? How many had the step down in the slide? Has a beretta gun case but doubt it's original. Are these collectible? What are the values on these? I gave $450 at a local pawn shop. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks again.

They can get up there in price, if it is the real deal. Does it look like it was reblued? I'm not a expert on the original 92, but I'm pretty sure that front sight isn't original, with the orange dot on the front post.

Orange front sight is an over lay. Front sight being fixed to the slide. It appears to me to be original bluing. I'm in Ohio.

Ok I see. There is info on the "step slide" on the web. You don't plan on firing that do you? If ever want to part with it, let me know.

Thanks for the info. All my guns are shooters. I will shoot the beretta occasionally. Was just wondering if I did good on the purchase price of $450.

Yes I do believe you did well on that purchase. They are well sought after, I hope someday I can run into my dream gun. (Original 92 step slide). It's your gun, and you can do what you want with it. If I owned a first series 92 step slide, it would be in the safe. They are worth $$$$. Good find

Congratulations! You have done well with your purchase. Take some time do research on what you have there. See post #15 again. It is in your hands now so enjoy it in what ever manner you want. There are some of us that would love to have a Beretta 92 step slide. I am of the mindset now that I am older that my firearms are all shooters. This one would be one I would make a safe Queen.(maybe)
**Before you shoot it-> again get some detailed history on what you have. I too am not a appraiser but would get a detailed review of this Beretta.
Keep your powder dry and good luck!
