Excellent handling gun
This gun I bought and like the 96 I bought I imedeatly ordered a extended, threaded barrel for use with a Gemtech suppressor. I bought the barrel for this one from Jarvis and received a top quality drop in barrel wich I swapped my locking block on and mounted on the gun and headed to the range
Just like the 40cal 96 these guns work excellent with a suppressor and do not need a booster of any type to allow them to cycle with the suppressor on, this is because of the locking block system Beretta uses on their 90 series guns
Over all this gun handles extremely well both with or without the suppressor. I had tried to use my new suppressor on my Glock17 as soon as I got it but the Browning recoil system Glock uses does not allow it to cycle without a booster unit on your suppressor, the Berretta does not have this problem due to using a locking block system instead
The bottom line for me is I bought this gun specificly for use with a Gemtech suppressor and after adding a Jarvis Extended Threaded Barrel it has performed for me flawlessly everytime I pull the trigger, Suppressed, Unsuppressed, Sub Sonic ammo, high velocity 115gr ammo its all funtions perfectly.
Couldn't ask for a better gun for the purpose I bought this one for, It serves me flawlessly everytime I ask it to.
