    They are located in Italy and have a factory there (unless that's changed since last I checked). But they also have Baretta USA which has a manufacturing plant here in the USA and may be it's own division from the parent company, but that spacific I am not sure on.

    I think some or all of the 92 series are built in in the U.S. The Bobcat is as well to circumvent the 1968 GCA restrictions on the importation of small handguns. I may be wrong, but I think Beretta also has some trap guns built in Japan by Miroku, alongside Winchesters and such.

    I believe the Beretta U22 Neos (and platform) were 100% American Designed and Manufactured.

    I have 2x 6-inch Inox U22s... most reliable .22lr handguns I have... and I can put both at arms length and rapid fire as fast as I can (or my friends as well), and they eject around/over each other, and never a jam. Using CCI or Wildcats or Remingtons. (stick with CCI these days).

    =)
    Priced well too, neat design. A good buy, and accurate as well. Trigger job walkthrough on my site over here

    the 84 is made in italy. one of the few. but then again, they stopped making them :mad: though you can pick one up easily since they are plentiful.

    pre 1994 92s should also be made in italy, but that's more of on a per gun basis.

    I have a Beretta 96 (G) bought several years ago that was made in Italy and I just picked up another 96 (no designation stamp) that is a police trade in made by Beretta USA. The finish between the two is like night and day. The finish on the USA-made looks like painted and is now flaking off. Maybe refinished somewhere along the line? Both function equally smooth though. Still don't really know what detemines where a particular model is manfactured.

    I think one of the reasons 92's are made in the USA is because of of the stipulations of the military contract is the pistol had to be able to be produced in the USA. It's not smart to have long supply lines for your weaponry in a war.

    The ones that say Accokeek Maryland on the slide. The ones from Italy say Gardone Val Trompia. It's really simple.

    Can't tell you which ones aren't, but I can tell you the 85F that I have is made in Italy.

    Well... my Storm and 686 Gold E are Italian, my 92 and Neos are American...

    I've heard that Beretta USA sometimes has customer service issues. But, if you send a letter to Italy, they will fix your problem post-haste...
