    I've been wanting one of these for awhile, managed to find one last year and finally have it.

    They are awesome! I've got one in .40S&W, I'd shoot it a lot more if it was in 9mm but none the less, its a wonderful pistol. Not very common, good find!

    I suspect the weight of the all steel frame and the price kept them from ever being very popular.

    They were a limited run....1500 or 1700 total made, something like that, half of which went to Italy and half to BerettaUSA. Single action is preferred over the DA/SA action. Cost is usually now over $2000.

    Morgo, you'll love it, they are sweet shooters.

    Never heard of it, but it looks interesting. A variant of the 92?

    Its a variant of the 92fs.
    It has a SAO trigger though it can be had in SA/DA
    It has a frame mounted safety
    Its also has a steel frame, which adds quite a bit of extra weight.

    Thanks mate, to be honest I'm not a huge fan of the billenium certainly not for the price they go for.
    Maybe an Elite II :)

    Now that's a Beretta Model 92 that I would be interested in with it's SA trigger, frame mounted safety, and straight backstrap design. Very nice.

    Thanks a lot, Morgo, my 92FS just went running upstairs crying. I had to go up there and hold it for fifteen minutes, saying "it's okay, baby, you're pretty too, you're pretty too."
