    Default Beretta 92 Italian frame uneven.

    Brand new Beretta 92 with grey frame. Noticed the dust cover is machined a little uneven: thicker on one side.
    The other model in the store had an evenly machined dc but the slide rubbed on the one side.

    I assume this is only cosmetic, and wonít affect long term durability?

    Iím inclined to keep it and shoot it a lot. Thoughts?

    Yes, shoot it. There's a thread over on AR15.com discussing a similar problem but the cover was actually making contact on one of the new M9A3's.

    The gentleman involved tried to have it returned/exchanged/repaired and Beretta told him to go pound sand. If it isn't making contact, I say shoot it.

    Thanks for that. Seems like these variances are within spec.

    Not a problem.

    My Inox 92FS (Italian) and my Norinco 1911A1 are both a little uneven - hasn't been an issue with either.

    Thanks! Good to know it’s ‘normal’ and doesn’t affect function
