Default the frame on my NEW Brietta Tomcat CRACKED! less than 50 rounds

any suggestions how i should approach this with Beretta, i don't want another PoC,... this is an on going problem with this gun, and they continue to sell them..

if i get a replacement i want an Inox.. i got this gun because i lost my left hand and my hook cant pull some slides back. i have no problem with my Beretta 92 FS, it has dual safety levers on the slide. the Tomcat's pop-up barrel/bubble action solves the slide pulling problem.. except the gun is junk. if i could wrangle an Inox off them i might keep it.

i am concerned that i might injure my only hand, it seems all the problem does is prevent feeding another shell when it gets bad.. but i don't want to risk it.

i really didn't like the caliber on the Tomcat but figured it would be a suitable Conceal/Carry pistol.. I'm very thin and tall, a belt holster shows.

i just thought maybe someone did something like this before and could give me some pointers on how to get an upgrade to the Inox or mid size Beretta.
i am not really good at stuff like this.. and i am still REALLY PISS'd OFF.!!!

I read Beretta will up grade your cracked tom cat to a new inox for a resonable fee.
Give Beretta a call and see what happens.

have you considered a 1911 pattern?? they come in many calibers and sizes. i knew a guy back in texas similar situation he couldnt use his left side but was an avid handgunner. he switched from shooting his barreta to a 1911 because he could charge the weapon by use the edge of a shooting bench to rack the slide.
