I would contact Beretta Technical Support in Accokeek Maryland regarding this. It certainly does not look right at all! It may create a little bit of inconvenience but by sending it back may get you some extra perks of tightening things up and resolving the problem. I would express my discontent with the situation and act mildly upset. Companies sometimes will do a little extra on the weapon to satisfy and unsatisfied customer who got a weapon with a factory problem. I am assuming the pistol is new and not used?
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
