Ok everyone this is my first post on this site and so far it is great. Now my question is this, I was calling around to try and find a heavier recoil spring and I talked to a beretta gunsmith. I asked him many questions and he said I pretty much have a worthless gun and I will only get a couple hundred rounds through it and it will break. Now I did a lot of research on this gun before I bought it and nobody on any forum or discussion board had anything bad to say about them. In fact most people say they have put thousands of rounds through their guns with no problems with only a heavier recoil spring to take the punishment. Most of their guns are 15 years old, now I must say that I shoot factory loads and no more than 124 grain load through it and at the moment it is my main carry gun. Is this guy just a beretta fan boy or does he speak the truth, also I bought the gun from my cousin brand new never fired and at that point the 10 day warranty deadline had passed so if this thing breaks I think im screwed unless, I have him make up a fake reciept and then send the card in with it. I hope that works, any feedback would be great thanks everyone.
