had an itch for a 96 since pawing an a1 last year & an opportunity recently presented itself...
That's a straight dust cover 96. That's a score. You want to sell it?
Congratulations, even though it’s of the wrong caliber.
That a unicorn for sure. Don't ever sell it... But when you do PM me.
thought my boresnake shrank, but that may explain alot...
that's a handsome pistol. I thought the straight dust cover models were of questionable strength for .40
The Beretta is one of the very few guns that for some reason looks better in stainless IMO.
I regret passing on a dozen inox Berettas over the years before they started making them with the black controls.
I think they look best blued. Unfortunately, they haven’t been blued since the mid 1980’s.
very nice gun.
If you shoot it with any regularity, I highly recommend a stronger recoil spring. The factory 13lb spring is a bit light.
Sharp looking gun!
it only had 100 or so rounds through it by original owner; i ran 150 through it over weekend without a hitch; including small box of hst. maybe i'll glance at brownells for a spring kit.
Great to hear
I agree. This one is a keeper.
I run 15lb (I think) Wolff RSA's in both my Beretta 96's, the full size and the Centurion. Really makes for a soft shooter with higher velocity .40 and no malfunctions. Just a thought.
does your wolff spring move freely along guide rod? i attempted to swap out oem spring with 15# wolff spring from a 92/96 calibration set and it was slightly tight and dragged along rod. that doesn't seem right.
Nice find. I wouldn't let that one go.

Yes it does. Mine has been replaced with an aluminum guide rod, not the plastic OEM.
now you got me curious so i tried it on italian 92 and it fit fine and moved freely too. maybe inox guide rod is ever so slightly larger diameter (?), leastwise on the older u.s. version of 96, dunno. i ordered a twisty rod from wilson; hopefully spring fits fine.
I run Wilson's 16 Lb spring in my 96. I recommend it. That and a D hammer spring, along with grips of your choice, are all this gun needs. I even like the red sights.
Congrats on a very underappreciated gun. I'll never let mine go.
