Has anyone handled or shot the Beretta Steel-I? If you did what is your impression of it? Thanks.

Wow!

With all the collective firearms experience/wisdom on the THR no one has any info/opinions on the Beretta Steel-I?:eek:

I doubt anyone even has one yet.

It's essentially a Beretta Millennium only without the super small number produced and the different finish.

Looks interesting though.

Billenium had an alloy frame though, didnt it?

No, the Billennium has a steel frame.

I fondled a Steel at the DACA show, and I like the grip on my Bill better - the Steel is very similar in most ways, but has the straight backstrap (a la Vortec), which I don't like as well as the normally curved 92-series grip.

Now if only they'd bring out a 9x23 version of the 92 - just stretch the mag well a little bit ...

Patentnonsense, did you get the opportunity to dry-fire the Steel-I? If you did, how was the trigger? I have the Vertec 92FS Inox and prefer the Vertec type grip myself.

Dry fire? No, 'twas only pulled out from under glass after some coaxing!

Skunk you are either going to have to give up your dreams of cool (read: safety in the right bloody place) Berettas or move. :D

Lots of bright Korean and Viet girls here too -
but Houston is one of the few places in the world with worse weather and prettier women than Dallas -
how much HOT can you handle??

Houston: derived from an ancient Apache word meanding "hotter than the place the the white man fears"

Just kidding, I like Texas (since it is just a suburb of Tennessee :p )
Amazing how many of those kooky kids flock to our city to be country music stars. But hey, we need waiters too. :)

With an MSRP of $1730, I think it'll be a while before the first THR range report :p

Question. Are the Berettas with the frame mounted safeties single action only, or do they have the Taurus style safety where all the way down is decock (a bad idea, I think)?

Or, are they like a CZ-75B, double action, but you have to lower the hammer manually?

Its like the Taurus except the comp model. I handled one ' bout 2 years ago at a manufacturer shoot (GAT GUNS). Its only for display though, no dry fire allowed.

The Billennium is a straight single action.
