Rated 5 out of 5 by Spacepup13 Great pistol
This pistol is a great. One of the smoothest pistols that I have fired. To the person that said it was inaccurate but your Berreta I am not sure they are aware this is a Berreta 8000 that was licensed to Stoegar. As I have fired it it was very accurate at and the rail makes it nice since you can now add accesories. Great gun for the new buyer.

Purchased this handgun last month and it is by far the best handgun I have owned. It shoots smooth and accurately. I would highly recommend this gun to a first time handgun owner or recreational shooter!

Rated 2 out of 5 by KillZone Very Inaccurate
Beautiful Gun. Fit great in my hand. What a great buy, came with 4 clips and a carrying case. The gun shoots flawlessly and is very easy to clean when the shooting is done.
Now the bad news. Good luck staying on the paper or hitting anything at all. At 15 yards it is over a foot off. At eight yards you can finally hit the paper but good luck getting the center. The only thing I can contribute this to is the trigger pull. Very long and very hard. Same results with a laser site and open. Now with the hammer pulled all the way back to begin with the accuracy is a little better.
Shot a Ruger .357 and a Beretta .45 the same day and there was no comparison on the accuracy. Believe it or not the old (1950's) .357 revolver shot a fist sized group at 25 yards. So much for new gun...new technology and advanced sites. Go Ruger.
I think with some trigger work this can be a great gun.
