    M9 = Good Choice

    Have you seen the Branch of Service M9's?
    Mine came in a plastic box with blue and black grips.

    That's cool. Are those grips aluminum?

    The dealer I bought mine from was pushing these instead of the regular model very hard even had a lower price and I beleive a extra mag and a set of plain grips. I got the feeling he was stuck with them. I chose the regular version as I didn't like the huge roll mark on the side. Now if I was in the military then maybe I can see getting the corresponding roll mark.

    Damn, I didn't know that they have an Armed Forces M9 run. I would have bought the US Army one in a heartbeat.

    Yeah sorry you missed out. I beleive they were limited to 2000 of each branch of service. They came with a extra mag and a set of plain black grips. I thought the colored grips that came on them were aluminum. But the poster above thought they were plastc so I'm not sure. Colors were.

    Army green
    Marine red
    Air Force blue
    Navy grey

    I went to pull the grips off to verify....

    The Allen head screws stripped!!!!!!! All 4 of them!
    I have no idea what the grips are made of but the grip screws are plastic...or chocolate....or ear wax! :rant:

    Can someone tell me what that plastic dish is for? Got one with my 9000S and could never figure out the purpose. Makes the case hard to close, doesn't serve a cleaning or reloading function, has no handle so it isn't for coffee and no one would waste good bourbon drinking from plastic....

    I could be totally wrong but I always assumed it was for a couple extra rounds to carry around in the case.

    I believe it's to keep the box/case from getting pushed in or crushed in on itself and the contents from moving around. I will e-mail Beretta and ask so we have the official word. :supergrin::wavey:
