Heh, yeah, 'round here I call myself The Enabler. I suspect pretty much everyone wishes they could be me -- I'm kind of a big deal, you see.

Ha! Why am I not surprised that the early-model 92 is part of your collection, LSP? Even with the finish wear, the gun is a head turner.

Are you kidding? Finish wear just makes Berettas look better.

This probably belongs here, I forgot we had a Beretta thread.









All I can say is that holy drat this is a fine piece of shooting iron. The detail that went into this gun is astonishing.

I managed to snag this off gunbroker for the seemingly great price of $1500. Haven't had a chance to take it out to the skeet range to see if it actually works properly yet but everything seems to be in order. Came with a fancy lord's leather edged case with BERETTA stamped on it and everything.

The next Beretta I buy will probably be a 96G if I can find one since I hear that is one of the softest shooting .40S&W guns around.

Beretta shotguns own. I love the workmanship that went into mine, I just wish the stock hadn't been chopped down on it.

Why would that surprise you? Beretta has been in business since 1526. I think it is part of why I am always so drat drawn to Berettas. I'm just having a hard time figuring out how to satisfy my Beretta lust while maintaining my general policy of only buying old guns. Good old Berettas don't seem to crop up that often.

Also, for the record. Wheel Locks are one of the craziest and most awesome of all gun designs. It's a wind up gun!

Tis a proper white whale of mine.

Honestly, I love berettas. I never have stopped loving berettas. I don't like shooting them, or much about them mechanically for that matter, but that doesn't stop me from loving them.

So a hot Beretta revolver would be something I would absolutely love to own.

Also, they technically have some Beretta single action revolvers, not really.

Those little things I was unaware of, but they don't really interest me like the ported .357 from the early 80's in the picture.

Guessing they mean a beretta 1951 here; http://www.ebay.com/itm/361061629126?_trksid=p2060778.m1438.l2648&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Heiser made an extremely nice holster, if anyone wanted a neat holster to go with their 1951 this would certainly be a unique and classy accessory.

Hah, glad to see that auction has stirred something up. I rarely find exciting and interesting old beretta grips.

I am not certain how to tell what they are made of, but I think they are actually silver. They look like something someone cast at home.

With Siam and '63 on there I'd start off with looking at Thai units.

Has anyone discussed the.. script? Writing? at the top/bottom of the right panel?

I fully planned to watch it for a couple days and sell poo poo to fund a bid if it looked like it would go for $affordable.

I only have that opening bid on there, feel free to outbid me.

I just figure if no one else bid and I won it for 200 I would be happy, anything more and someone else should own it.

Oddly enough I have won a number of guns in just this fashion.

It wasn't even called Siam in '63.

These grips are designed to be a mindfuck.

Lots of these old weird militaria pieces are like that. Dudes made them for all sorts of reasons to commemorate lord knows what. It's sad they aren't in the original family.

On another note.

Wasn't the gun they go on not actually designed until the mid 1970s?

Also, my grandmother called it Siam because she liked the sound of it. Old people do that.

Frankly I find a nearly unfinished stock preferable to a finished stock with some sort of wierd poo poo on it that I don't like.

Less poo poo to strip off to put a proper oil finish on there.

I hate varnish.
