Well, I bought a 92FS for $377 + $25 S&H. I picked it up today, and went shooting... What I discovered: A) I can shoot it more accurately than my Argentine 1911 B) Beretta mag prices border on extortion... $5 for a 7rd 1911 mag $10 for an Orlite 30rd AR mag !!$41!! for a 10rd factory Beretta mag! !!$45!! for a 15rd Asian-import Beretta mag! I didn't like the AWB before, but... C) I seem to have bad luck with buying used guns from poor gun-cleaners... I should have checked this before I took it shooting, but the previous owner apparently liked his gun bone dry, so it short-cycled on me quite regularly (shoot-rack-shoot-rack...). I'll see how well it works when properly cleaned and oiled (my 1911 did the same thing, cleaning/oiling fixed it...)

I usually get factory hi-caps for $35... Edited to add: My $24 no-name 30rnd Beretta mag from CDNN works flawlessly.

I've seen them on Gunbroker for $35... I wonder, what makes new pistol mags (especially for a military issue pistol... usually (1911, AR) that generates a decent surplus market...) so &#$%! expensive?
