I don't think they have made them In Italy sense 95 (correct me if I am wrong)

I would try Gunbroker.com or, PPT is going to be your best bet

Good Luck

All gun stores around here are also out of M9's.....maybe they are discontinued also. Are CZ's discontinued? Can't find one of those either.

Look on the manufactures website. If it's still listed, it's not discontinued. A quick search of the Beretta website shows it's still made. But it's no longer listed on the Beretta USA website, so it may no longer be imported.

You're wrong. Italian manufactured 92FS' in blue and inox were imported last year, then discontinued at the beginning of 2012. Most distributors had them on closeout as late as March (at a slight discount even). Now, you can only get them in the retail or used market. But if past history is any indication, it is almost a certainty that Beretta will begin importation again in 2013 or 2014.

Beretta makes Inox guns in bursts at the Italian plant. Beretta - being a non-public company, they do what they want...

Heck - even last year - they were selling USA 92 AND 96 Inox versions in Turners.. And this was long after the 96 was discontinued..... I'm on the BerettaForum.net a lot - probably even more than here...

I do know the 96 (Blued/Bruniton/Inox) is history. (96A1 is real...)

As to the 92FS Inox Italian versions - I don't think anybody knows...

My first 92FS was a USA Inox model that I spent the $$ to convert to all stainless. Had to purchase from CDNN/Brignoli/folks here/folks on Beretta Forum....

So - don't know the answer to your question... :)

First off. The Beretta website is one of the worst places for reliable information. Don't trust what you see or read there.

As Orange already said, impossible to know what they are/will do in regards to the Inox model. That being said, there are tons of online retailers who have access to different distributors, and I have no doubt whatsoever that there are USA-made and Italian-made Inox models still in the supply chains. Those models are less popular than the black versions, so sometimes they sit in inventory.

$200 over market value, trolling for a newb

Edit: From this week's email flyer, looks like Davidson's still got some blue Italian's, they maybe holding some Inox ones also.

It didn't used to be that way, but yeah, about half the posts are either conjecture or wrong.. lolz There are some SMART folks there, but alas, they don't post much....

Ah! No. I didn't mean the Beretta forum. I was referring to the actual BUSA website.

Generally, there are some very helpful and knowledgeable people over at the forum.

How is that seller "trolling" for anything? Last I checked, we were talking about a gun that is A) likely not currently in production, and B) always priced at hundreds more than the standard Bruniton (not blue) guns.

On the Beretta forum, both new and vintage Inox models regularly list between $700-$800. Normally, the price varies more if it's a vintage model with pre-ban SS mags. But asking $800 for a NIB all stainless (no cheap black plastic controls) out of the gate is NOT crazy. That's what bargaining and negotiating is all about. :D

When buying a 92FS take into consideration if you want straight or curved dustcover. Most prefer straight.

Looking to convert an INOX with black controls to a full stainless version. Anyone have links to purchase?

That's easier said than done. You can source a odd piece or two from CDNN, MGW, and Brownell's. But there are certain pieces none of them will ever have. Particularly, the Inox slide safety assembly parts. Those just don't exist. You'll need an entire "vintage" stainless upper to get those.

As for sourcing the take-off stainless parts for the frame, you can find them from time-to-time on the Beretta forum.

Good luck.

Is it not true that even if you do convert the parts to all stainless finish, should the pistol be sent in for warranty work the Beretta factory will replace the parts with blued anyway?

Can't imagine a single reason to worry about such. What reports have you read to make you concerned about that, in the first place?

Postings on Berettaforum.net . Apparently if you order replacement parts from Beretta or send in a gun for warranty work, you'll get blued parts no matter whether the gun is an Inox or not. Assuming of course that you get a response from Beretta's dodgy CS to begin with, but that is a different discussion.

If you're concerned about this, just don't go to the trouble of putting stainless parts on your gun in the first place. Not very complicated. Doesn't seem to be an issue for most.
