I have been looking into the lifespan of the Beretta 96. It is built on a design and frame intended for use with 9mm (like a lot of other .40 S&W guns out there) and hence the lifespan is known to be shorter than that of its 9mm brethren.
So I have started thinking about switching to a 9mm Beretta platform to get more life out of the gun, preferably a 92D. What say you that read this blog? Yay or Nay? Feel free to comment.
