I had an Italian-made 92FS many years ago, but had to sell (and my other guns) it to pay for my divorse. I have always missed this pistol and was very impressed by it's accuracy, fit and finish.

I think it's time to replace it with a new FS, but I have a dilemma...should I hold out for an Italian one? Are they a better pistol or just more collectible? I am interested in quality, not collectibility.

Are the Italian ones better???

Well, my Beretta is made in Gardone Valtrompia and my M4 in Hartford .... I would find disturbing a Beretta made in US and a M4 in Italy Ciao

Absolutely no difference at all. I've laid them both side-by-side & you cannot tell the difference at all.

The Italian and older American made guns are all either alloy and steel, where the new American made ones are steel, alloy, and plastic.

Italian tend to be smoother, but the Beretta design is still so damned good that even the US made Berettas are smooth as hell. I wouldn't worry about it.

My stainless one made in the states is all metal and as smooth as any other 92 I have ever held or shot. However to each his own. I like stuff made in the States so I am happy.
