Arrow Mirror Polished Beretta 92fs

This Italian-made Beretta 92fs has a stainless slide and an aluminum frame. The aesthetic quality of aluminum alloys and their color match to the stainless are hit and miss with firearms, but Beretta got it right! The aluminum shines brightly, and there are no imperfections like porosity (tiny pinholes in the metal). Plus, there isn't a large difference in look of the polished metals. This same customer wants to send his American-made 92fs next, so it will be interesting to compare the two.

Jason Statham would be proud to own that one.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Not a fan of the 92s, but that is a good looking one.

Haha! Thanks, man. I've covered Statham with the Beretta, the Terminator with the ATM Longslide, Rick Grimes with the Python, Dirty Harry with the 629 (the stainless version of his S&W Model 29 .44 magnum), and nearly every other film heavy with the Desert Eagle. I've had a few nibbles on .475 magnum Wildeys like Charles Bronson used in the Death Wish films, but no bites so far! It's one of the few remaining iconic (stainless) film guns I haven't polished yet.

Having spent my fair share of time at a grinder and a buffer making knives, I think I can appreciate better than most the time and skill that go into 'mirror' polishing.

The fact that the round parts are still round, the flat parts are still flat and the lines are all crisp and clean is extremely impressive; you're very talented.

Thanks so much for the kind words, Larry! It is always gratifying when another craftsman appreciates your hard work!
