Fantastic pistol, I have a soft spot for the Berettas and that right there is a gem.

Morgo
02-15-2013, 17:13
Thanks mate :)

I've a soft spot now for the frame mounted safety versions

Can you carry cocked and locked with the frame safety?

I don't see why not. Its not something I'll ever be doing with it though.

thanks I was just wondering if when you put the safety on with the hammer cocked if it auto decocked it like on a 92fs or if you could apply the safety while leaving the hammer back.

I've never saw one of those before. Does it decock as well? Looks like something I'd like to own. Thanks for posting and I hope you enjoy it!

Its a single action only pistol. There is no decocker.

It's possibly going to be my favourite Beretta, between it and the Combat anyway :supergrin:

They don't anymore. The Steel I is long since discontinued.

Just a few, I don't think they make any at present.

Here's a pic with my Beretta 92fs Combat I picked up recently, its a SAO as well :)

The Billennium is a little too blingy for me, but it's a great pistol.

The main difference from the Steel I is the vertec grip.

In the photo, you'll see a comparison of SAO triggers with the Beretta and the AR. What puzzles me a bit is what appears to be a long throw on the Beretta trigger......:dunno:

Are you sure this Beretta isn't DA/SA?

If it's a true SAO, then it seems like it ought to be something similar to the AR, or in Bac's avatar.......but, maybe some further explaining of this particular Beretta action is necessary for me to understand this a bit better.

Well its not an AR for starters :)
(Nordic kit for Ruger Charger :))

Definitely a SAO Beretta, but I know what you mean. The SAO trigger on these two Berettas is in a similar position to the DA/SA. Not like say the Sig X5 which is easy to tell the DA/SA and SAO triggers apart.

Pretty hard to come by and the last couple I've seen have been around $2500.

Honestly thats something I like about them, same as with my 1911's I prefer the ambi safety.

Yeah, at least...

Certainly a hefty price tag, guess they will only continue to go up in value as well.
