A hearty second on that from this pew. I have one, like it, including the wider grip from the double-stack magazine that helps distribute the recoil better. A little harder to hide than my Model 51 Remington from 1919 or my Bersa Thunder, but more comfortable to shoot. Not nickled, but would expect one to have all of the goodness the blue guns do, plus more resistant to corrosion.As indicared Beretta made their mod 84 for Browning with a traditional slide and decocking hammer if i recall mine being so equipped. For a 380 they are large and recoil a bit with their blow back operation, however, reliability and beautiful assembly are it's strong points. The pistol has a double stack mag and therefore a large grip compounded by thick wood panels.
i personally like the traditional slide over my Mod 84 Beretta with it's open one.
