"Field Tested and Reviewed Gear"
Well....the reason there's no review here is because the gun is BACK at the gunsmith's getting re-cerakoted and worked on.
When we got the gun back here was the breakdown:
Gun was retuned 4 days later than the promised date.
The pin that disconnects the trigger when the safety is engaged is missing.
One grip screw was broken off in the grip.
3 of the 4 grip screw washers were missing.
The gun, when fired, would not eject the spent round.
He ran out of “red”, so one of the safety indicators was undone.
There were shiny bare metal parts still on the gun.
The cerakote would just scrape right off.
We notified the gunsmith of the issues and he promptly retuned to pick up the gun.
Why are we not writing all about it here?
Well we feel it’s really the end result that matters and sometimes shit happens. So we are giving him a chance to make things right.
He did discount us $20 for the gun being late. Of course it cost us $19 from Beretta to have replacement grip screws sent out to us.
Today is the 8th of January, he told us it would be back on the 7th of January but we did tell him his deadline was the 10th of January.
We shall see.
Well the gun came back and it's perfect. Maybe he was just having a bad day, everyone does. But the most important part is Gunsmith Dan came back, picked up the gun and made everything right!
We have taken the gun to the range and fired about 400 rounds through it without a single issue. We also conducted the holster test, inserting and removing the weapon 100 times to see how the finish holds up. The results? The finish is holding just fine.
So if you are looking for a San Diego county based Cerakoter check out Gunsmith Dan.
