For discussion (don’t move this to EE):
Does anyone here know where to find Beretta frames (aka lowers) either stripped or complete?
For me, it would be nice to have a few frame options for all my slides (aka uppers). 92G-SD or vertec for example.
What’s the deal on any legal issues in “parting them out”? The slides aren’t serial #ed, just the frame. As long as it transfers following all rules of a complete handgun it shouldn't be an issue right?
Anyway, thought you all might have a good angle on this.
P.S. If anyone has a spare 92G-SD frame lying around, I'll take it!
I don't believe I've ever seen any Beretta 9x frames out there.
Beretta USA isn't selling just the frames.
I think you best bet would be to buy a used full gun with the frame you want.
Then sell off the slide/barrel.
I've seen slide/barrel combos available for sale.
Check out www.berettaforum.net for more Beretta specific knowledge and parts.
Highly unlikely you'll ever find one. I know of no handgun mfrs that sell just the frame, other than the assorted 1911's.
Glock is a minor exception to that.
Glockmeister has been selling Glock frames, uppers, etc.
I believe he's on vacation (deployment) for several months now and is only selling the basic stuff at this time.
