Depends. HELL NO on the current production Italian Berettas. If it was the pre-USA Italians, then yes.

Which Inox model are you talking about? Is it anything special, or just plain jain M9 type that is stainless?

I have a Made in USA Beretta 92FS ( Police Service Model) on my hip while on duty.And sometimes off duty. Also have a spare, almost new Made in USA 92FS in the safe. Both guns shoot great and never jam. They are both at least 6-7 yars old.

I am looking at a brand new one in the local shop for 619.00+ tax. Made in Italy. I know it has some plastic parts , but don't know about new 92's that much.

All I know that in many years using a 92 beretta ( in US and few other places)it was really good to me.

The current Italian Berettas are fine, they're just not the same as the old ones. It used to mean something when I browse through classifieds seeing an Italian Beretta for sale. All straight dustcover, non radiused backstrap, all metal parts, metal guiderod, and slick as snot.

Now the current production guns are no slouch. They've recently went back to silver non-polymer coated parts for their INOX models. However, it just isn't the same as "how it used to be."

I hear you, Bug Splat. I do like 1911s and .45 ACPs too. Except that in my situation, I have 3 1911s and 'am entertaining the thought of paring-down the collection a bit. The Inox just caught my fancy, after I just bought a regular Italian made Beretta 92 fs. The Beretta's are---FOR ME---sweet shooters.

Only 3? I have 11. That doesn't stop me from buying more. I personally would not trade a 1911 for anything other than another 1911 or presidential portraits.
Is the 1991 ORM or NRM. The NRM's are much nicer looking than the big billboard ORM's.

You'd be better off selling your 1991. Lots of people looking for 1911's. Including myself.

You have 3 1911'S? Do the dog-on trade man... Beretta 92's, M9's.. whatever you want to call it... they are fine weapons.

Do you have any other hicap 9mm's?

Its a pretty even trade... you might be on the lower end of it, but its darn close.

Its hard to let go of a colt though... it will go up in value more than the inox.

I personally don't care for either gun. I had a Beretta 92 Italian model with the two dot sight not the "normal" 3 dot. and I didn't care for the Beretta much. That said I don't care for 1911 ( your post says 1991 but I assume you mean 1911). given that I would take the 1911 over the beretta.

Gang,

I really don't know what has gotten into me, it seems I've just had my fill of the 1911. It is still a favorite but I am no longer as obsessed with it as when I was a little bit younger.

To those who've posted " only 3 ", I used to have a total of 8 and then I suddenly realized " What do I need 8 1911s for???? ". So, in the last several years I started paring down the collection, and.... I am fine with it.....I can't bring those 1911s with me to the grave---LOL!

Maybe you are all correct, I should just keep what I have for now, forget buying anymore Berettas, just enjoy the few guns I have left. I can be happier and more at peace with just a few, right?

Cheers to all!!!!

If you really want that 92FS, it should be Beretta + cash.

Or, sell it on Calguns then use the money for a Beretta. But if it's a straight trade (unless it's a pre-USA Italian as I mentioned earlier), you're getting the short end of the deal.

I wouldn't trade any Colt 1911 type for any Beretta 9mm, other than an M12.
