I would always take the Italian Beretta over the US made. Things are done different in Italy. Most US workers are slackers. Lets be men and admit that.
--Off Topic--that is the real reason all our jobs are being moved overseas.
But in Italy they go to work and they love it. Each Beretta is handled and cared for with love and passion. A priest even bless every new batch!! US workers are off sleeping in a corner or taking the "Union Break". Quality is much higher in Italy. Haven't you noticed thats why they make ferrari, lamborghini, louis vuitton, and the list goes on and on. Everything they make is made to last and of the worlds best craftsmanship.
So in closing get the Beretta made in Italy.

Right, when I said "all in stainless steel" I didn't mean that the entire gun was SS. But the barrel and slide, the rest is the anodized aluminium alloy. Just to avoid confusion!

Also the both used differant screws for the grips, one was a regular flat head and the other a hex. Also it seems on the lower reciver under the barrel on the american made one was cut more straight and the one made in italy was cut at a slight taper. I never knew this before, so now I am torn, which was should I get? Is there any other difference? HELP PLEASE!!
I would go Italian, the action is smoother. I've had an American stainless and I just was real impressed with it. my best friend and his dad have 1 each and love them, my best recently also joined switching to Glock.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I think I will go with the one made in italy, the only thing I dont like about it is the taperd dust cover, but if it makes it stonger than I can over look it. On that note how does a taperd dust cover improve the strength of the weapon?
