no certificate, no case, just a plain cardboard box, with a paper sleeve around the box that had each of the services "crest" on it, and "25 years serving the US Military" or something to that effect printed on it. inside the cardboard box was the gun in a zip lock bag and the extra mag in a ziplock bag.
I had read elsewhere online that that's how the M9s came, in a rather plain, ordinary looking cardboard box and nothing else, keeping in theme with the "no frills, all business, only what's needed" attitude of a US Gov't contract
I'll have to put an email in to Beretta I suppose, to ask them what models were "25th anniversary editions" and which ones were just "commercially available M9s" Do you mind sending me a photocopy of the certificate so I can include it in the email?
