Recoil Spring and Guide for a Beretta 70S

Does anyone know where I can get a recoil spring and guide for my .380 calibre Beretta Model 70S? I've tried Beretta, Brownells, Numrich, and Midwest Gun Works.

Don't be a "fellow-traveler", Marty. Check out a Beretta 92 series in 9MM Parabellum or a 96 in .40 calibre. They are super high-quality, sexy as Gina Lollobrigida, and each come with a dozen...

As far as the Bersa Thunder 380 and the Walther PPK/S are concerned, I'd say that they are very, very similar except for one thing: I've had two Bersas and neither one tried to amputate my thumb! ;)

Ah, but the Thunder 380 is a Bersa and the 85FS and 70S are Berettas! ;)

Actually, I find the 70S to be just about right for pocket carry, unless I'm trying to wear pants that I've outgrown!

One word of advice: If the gun in question is a Walther PPK or PPK/S, be very careful how you grip it. If you get your strong hand a tad too high, you'll wind up with a nice little slice on your hand...

If I recall correctly, the 9MM Luger (9MM Parabellum) is actually a lengthened version of the 9MM Browning (9MM Short, 9MM Kurz, 9MM Corto, 9MM Scurt, .380 ACP), no?

And why would that be? That plastic return spring guide is far, far from being your garden variety plastic. It was developed with military service in mind. It is much less likely to have problems...

Working on a Beretta Model 1934

I'm thinking about buying a Beretta Model 1934 from which some putz pulled the lanyard loop. It wasn't cut off. It was pulled out of the frame, leaving two little holes. I've looked all over the...

Value Question

What would be a ballpark price on a 1956-vintage S&W M&P (pre-model 10) 2" snubby .38 Special with all matching serial numbers (except for the grips, which are period-correct), solid as a rock,...

Grips for a Beretta Model 1934

Would grips for a post-war Model 1934 fit on an earlier Model 1934 from which the lanyard loop had been removed?

Lanyard Ring for My Old Colt

I've got a Colt Model 1901 DA .38 which has had the lanyard ring sawed off the butt. Any ideas on where I might find a replacement? Thanks.

Recommended Gunsmith

Based on his resurrection of my Model 1901 Colt DA .38, I highly recommend Jerry Johnson of Johnson & Johnson Gunsmiths in Churubusco, Indiana. Excellent work, fast turn-around, and a very reasonable...

She's about 2/3 afraid of a .38 and, also, has small hands. Another aspect in my thinking is that a .327 or .32 magnum (especially one in the Taurus Ultra-Light series) would be smaller and lighter...

Actually, what I'm thinking about is a Taurus Ultra-Light snubby (either .327 Federal Magnum or .32 H&R Magnum) for both my wife's use and as a possible pocket-carry for me.
