    So I just committed to a nice Beretta 96 (as shown in the sale thread on this forum). I had also wanted a 90-Two but for now the 96 will have to do. However, I may get the 96 and decide that I love it. What's the gist of the difference between the 96 and 90-Two? Which would you prefer? Are they all that different with the exception of aesthetics and the front rail? Thanks for any info.

    P.S. Side by side pics from someone who has both would be great!

    Does the 90-two come in .40?

    Yes, I'm referring to both in .40 S&W.

    I think its mostly looks and the 90-two uses some polymer. Mechanically they should be the same.

    Gander mountain sold me a new Ninety Two on clearance a couple of years ago and I love it. A 5 inch barreled 40S&W hits hard and is very controllable. However the 96 is easy to find after market parts for and looks more conventional. I would go with the best price unless you plan on modifying, then the 96.

    Another consideration - converting to .357sig. I have a 96 and Beretta does not recommend converting it to .357sig. I have no idea that their recommendations are for the ninety-two.
