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?

I don't mind at all. Let me see if I can dig out the box case and paper. I should be able to get that this weekend.

@ 70cuda, Here are a couple of pics of the items included in the box with my M9 25th anniversary. This is the certificate, a M9 anniversary sticker and a pic on the case and items. Let me know what you want me to send to your email. I have other pics as well.

Like I said in an earlier post, I am a Beretta addict. I can't pass oneup.

Is it an M? Looks like an L on the frame?

Very Nice, if you ever decide to sell that be sure to let me know!

Very cool! thanks for those pictures! I'm guessing I missed out on the 2,010 M9s in the limited run, and mine was probably made in 2011 or 2012 as a generic "civilian version of M9"

Here's the box mine came in.







and inside the box it looks like this:

I have well over 1000 rounds through mine and had a few FTE's with in the first 300 fired but since then it has been perfect.
What rig do you use to carry it? I just bought an old faithful hybrid. Never wore a hybrid before so I am going to try it for a month and see how it goes. I am also thinking about a remora 4art as well.

@Drvsafe, I currently am wearing a Galco OWB leather that was made for the Glock 26 but the Nano fits very nicely. In the warmer months I have worn a whitehat max tuck which is much like the crossbreed. I like the white hat because I can change out the kydex depending on which gun I am carrying. It's a lot cheaper to drop $29 on a new mold than buying a new holster. They are on line at www.whitehatholsters.com. Check them out...

@All4guns, yes it's a single stack type M. Picture may not be the greatest but if you expand it you can see it says type M on the frame.
