    I wouldn't say its just a great deal, but its fair. Pick it up and enjoy. Beware though, some of the oldest Berettas had an issue with the slide breaking and flying into the shooters face. This was fixed with later models by building the slide stronger and adding a safety feature to arrest the rearward momentum if the slide should fail.

    Unfortunately, I can't give you years of manufacture for this defect, but it was in some of the earliest ones issued to the military and corrected very quickly, like within the first couple of years, and all the affected ones I believe were recalled and modified.

    Not sure about the older models, but I picked up a brand new 92fs M9A1 w/two 10 rd clips (cali) for 640.00 before tax and registration fees. So you may want to look around a little more. Great gun very accurate and reliable I love it.

    Just picked one up last week. 647 out the door. It would've been like 620 but I used credit. Great gun except mines a m9 not 92f. Love how it says m9 on slide. And dot over dot sights. Even though I just sent the slide in to get tritium sights drilled into it.

    Any gun John McLain uses is a keeper. ;)
