Beretta 92 Steel I

I just bought this Beretta 92 steel I today, built 2010. Unlike most 92s, the safety is frame mounted and the frame is carbon steel rather than alloy, with a nickel alloy finish, so itís a heavy gun.

So much so that the original owner, a lady, didnít like the heft at all. The LGS bought it back from her, then put it on the rentals rotation for their range, where it had little success. I think most walk-ins who rent guns are youngsters who are more interested in modern plastic fantastic and rails.

Well her loss, my gain for a mere $ 1000 with case, lock and manual
















And itís a great shooter too, the first ten shots at 25 meters





It makes a great pair with the 92 combat

I was aware of the 92 Steel I, but never paid much attention to it.

I wonder how different the 92 Steel I is from the new 92X Performance.

Oh, and very cool gun. Congratulations.

Now that's for me!

CLASSIC12, I didn't know that the Beretta 92 could be had with a steel frame. Thanks for posting the good photographs.

Beautiful! Congrats! Nice price, too -- auction prices have hit several times that amount over here in recent years.

The 92 Steel I is my favorite 92 of all. (Not counting your 93R, of which I'm extremely envious, as a 92 here.) Here are a couple of my Steels.
