What would you do with it? (Thanks to nightcrawler for the idea).

I will kick this one off myself. I would immediately introduce a 92FS in a C&L single action only design with the traditional and vertec grips.

After I helped to lobby for the AW ban sunset, I'd introduce a semi-auto version of the PM12S or whatever that cool little blowback subgun built at BUSA along with the AR 90.

I'd suspend governmental sales of my products in Maryland and New Jersey until those states come around. If any other company did sales to them, I'd trash them in the gun press for cutting the industry's throat for some measly periodic contracts.

I'd make a affordable long mag tube model and shorty autoloading tactical shotgun under the Beretta marque.

You meant the production facility...

Silly me! :D:D:D

I would apply for US patents for every possible magazine that could be made for a Beretta pistol. I would make sure that Beretta was the only one that could legally make magazines to fit our guns. Then I would stop selling any Hi-caps in the US to gov't or LE. This would continue until the ban was removed.

Check out the Beretta Bilennium. I think that would suit your needs. :)

Get someone to fix that big hole in the top of the slide.

I've got two and looking to add more to my collection. I plan on getting a trigger job at Langdon Tacticle www.langdontactile.com and get them both custom finished. If I had control over Beretta guns in general, every damn one of them would be allowed for sale in Massachusetts to Class A and B holders alike regardless of capacity or stupid permit restrictions. :evil:

Woops! :o Let's try that again for Langdon Tactical. www.langdontactical

A Billenium for the masses & CA legal!!! I'd call it the Centurian (ooops, I already used that name...) I'd call it "10-Ring's first attempt at a mass produced handgun, I hope you like it"-ium :neener:

New_Comer - You gotta give a 92fs a shot. As much as I love my HK's (and I LOVE my HK's), I still have a place for my Berettas too!

I agree, everyone should own a Beretta and an HK ---- good paperweights are hard to find. ;)

good paperweights are hard to find.

if you're looking for a good paperweight, try a Glock :neener: No external safety so the hunk 'o plastic just sits nice and flat on your "TO DO" pile :D

Hire someone that knows something about trigger pull on pistols.
