WOW!!  USED Beretta 96 VERTEC  Stainless Pistols !!  .40SW caliber POLICE TRADES!!

We don't see these everyday...don't wait to grab a great firearm at a very reasonable price.

This gun will probably feel somewhat smaller in the hand than regular 96 models due to the straight backstrap feature.  If a 92 or 96 has always felt too large, this one may be for you!

Excellent gun for someone with small hands. The usual Beretta quality, smmoth, very good trigger and accurate. If you change the grips bevery careful, the right side has a small spring the pushes the transfer bar up and without it the trigger becomes disconeccted. Brownells has replacements for less than $2. Very good shooter.

Did not feel buds had rated this gun properly, however, I elected to keep even thou buds agreed to refund all monies. This made me even more comfortable in purchasing future items from them. Just recently added another buds special to my collection.

My first handgun, i have fired many guns before, everything from .22 to .44 mag, and have to say i love the Beretta 96. My boss told me this was one of the best guns i could get, especially at the price, and i have to agree! It was flawless when i got it, hardly any wear at all! My FFL thought it was new and thought i got a great deal. Put 800 round through it first time at the range, and then 400 more with friends. I have 6 mags+speed loader so i go though ammo like mad. Have to say, very pleased with the gun and buds, i give 5 stars! I would pick up another one, but i bought a Ruger SP101 the following month for CC.

I had a little trouble with my first used 96 Vertec, sent it back to Buds Via a printable UPS over night stamp and before I could plink my Eyes A My FFL was calling telling me my gun was ready for pick up. I couldn't believe it. Upon inspection of the replacement Firearm I was amazed! It's brand new! Appears it has never been fired! Can't believe the respect and kind treatment of the Staff at Buds. Thanks to all of you and a special thanks to Kyle for easing my mind and keeping in touch through email during the whole process. YOU CANT BEAT BUDS GUN SHOP! this was my 5th firearm purchase. THANKS GUYS!

My Vertec showed up very dirty and with Heavy wear and Use. Lots of fouling in the barrel. I got it home and field stripped it to find more problems and Damage including a major Break in the Frame on the right side of the gun above the trigger linkage. If you buy one of these please inspect this area thats prone to breakage. Don't beafraid to field strip it at the gun shop before you accept it like I was. The Night sights are shot also so don't let that be a buying point. I worked in the Armory during my 6 years in the Air Force and I am very experienced with Beretta's I rate the gun I got at 60% condition. Not including the broke frame. GOOD LUCK. Buds as usual is helping get it returned and has grade A service. So Thank You out to them.

I received my 96 Vertec SS only a few days after my order. I have ordered around 5 guns from Buds so far so as usual, no issues with Buds in terms of price or shipping.
Police trade-ins can make me nervous but this one was in great shape. It really looks like a very well cared for firearm. I couldn't wait to shoot it. My 15yr old daughter took a total of 5 handguns to the range today. These varied in caliber from .22LR, .380, 9mm, .40 and .45 ACP. My daughter claimed this Beretta as her favorite. The .40 cal really announced itself a lot more than the 9mm but the weight of the gun helps balance it out and keep you on target. We shot very well with this gun. I can see why police were using it.
Thanks for the great deal Buds.

Very nice gun for the money, slide had no wear on it, the frame certainly had seen some use. Had night sites, they barely glow, but better than nothing. Gun was very dirty but cleaned up nicely. Overall a great deal on a hard to find gun.

Well, this is my first Beretta, my first .40, and my first non-communist handgun(Tokarev and Cz82) all rolled into one. I must say, I'm amazed at how great a deal it was. I've always loved the design of the Beretta 90 series pistols, but never found one that I could bring myself to purchase until this one.

The balance is wonderful, accuracy is good, the point of aim is perfect, and the ease of disassembly is unbeatable. Plus, it's stainless. Also night sights are still glowing, the straight backstrap fits in your hand like a Para Ordnance double stack 1911, and the only signs of wear are on the back of the frame and the safety lever(the previous owner was a lefty). If you're on the fence, buy it.

Had a buddy offer me $600 for it...if I didn't like it so much, I'd have sold it then and there.
