    I've had one of those for years, my friend. ;)

    The Benneli B76 is a great pistol - fixed barrel, hard chrome trigger and hammer, sleek and sexy Italian styling, great accuracy, etc. :cool:

    Gorgeous gun, while still remaining different looking from everything else; I like it!

    Bac and I have exchanged words about them on this forum before. It is one of the last guns left on my "Bucket list".

    They were an exceptional pistol unfortunately released about the time "double stack mania" was breaking out.

    Yeah, the safety is a bit awkward, but I think its a fantastic pistol.

    Its very under appreciated, sadly. However, that keeps prices in check.

    Here's a pic I took of my B76 years ago with one of my Sig P210s. I think I was trying to describe how accurate the Benelli was by picturing it with one of the most accurate pistols ever built. :dunno:

    At any rate, you can see my B76 came with everything from the factory. The magazines are hard chromed as well. :cool:

    Lever-delayed blowback? Interesting.

    I am kind of curious about all fixed-barrel semiautos, (other than pure blowback.)

    The FAMAS assault rifle also uses a type of lever delayed blowback system too.

    They aren't terribly rare, but not exactly common either. There are none on Gunbroker right now, but I do see them on there frequently. They typically sell from $600 to $900 depending on condition.

    Grab one while you can. They haven't been built in decades and will get harder and harder to find.
