A good book for all things Beretta is Modern Beretta Firearms by Gene Gangarosa Jr. Has a really good chapter on the 92's history and development, including the military testing and the whole 'slide breaking' deal. Kamicosmos, Jul 10, 2003. Then of course there was this little issue with slides breaking in half and bopping soldiers in the face.

Traces the development of Beretta's famous Model 92 automatic pistol in all its variations including: Models 92S, 92S-1, 92SB, 92SB-F, 92FSS, and many more.

The focus of this book is confined to those Beretta firearms that were developed after Pietro Beretta took over the firm in 1903, an event which, as related in Chapter 1, marks the real beginning of Beretta in the 20th century.

The story of Beretta's firearms of the 20th century leads naturally to an overview of all the Beretta-made weapons, both old and new. It takes us beyond Italy, to nearly a dozen countries where Beretta-designed military firearms have been built, and to other nations where these fine weapons have been put to use. This book delves into the Beretta story and discovers how remarkable events and personalities shaped Beretta firearms as they are today.

This is a very useful reference for anyone interested in Beretta weapons, especially in Beretta pistols. Gangarosa has a very readable style, and the book covers a very broad spectrum of Beretta weapons. This is the only book or document I have ever seen that has some background data on Tullio Marengoni, who was a genius of a designer who worked for Beretta. Recommended for anyone interested in the full range of Beretta weapons. Coverage is very good, although not encyclopedic.

The Book heavily covers the 92 series pistol, I was hoping the book would cover the 950 series 25,22 caliber pistols more. But overall the book was very well done.

The book justifiably centers on the current flagship of Beretta products, the model 92 and all it's variations. but for a book focused on "modern" beretta firearms it's unfortunate to buy an edition 7 years out of date. This wouldn't be anything to count against the book except that in this instance there has been several interesting new developements. Those somewhat familiar with Beretta firearms should be aware that the Model 8000 series and the model 9000S series as well as the subcompact Tomcat are not featured which might not be overtly stated by it's 1994 publication date. However, the superb coverage of the model 92 including detailed information on proper 9mm cartridges and holsters makes this a good buy if your interest is very focused on the model 92.

This volume was preceded by the works of J.B. Wood (1985) and Marco Morin / Robert Held (1980) on Beretta firearms. The prolific US gunwriter Gene Gangarosa, who previously had authored a similar popular monography on the German Walther P 38 pistols, judiciously qualifies his book as a treatment of "modern" Beretta firearms. This title must be taken literally, as a clear indicator of content limitation. The absolutely central part of the book - and ist most valuable one, too - is the extensive in-depth treatise on the Model 92 pistol series and notably the trials and tribulations which, through various stages and retractions, finally led to its acceptance by the US Armed Forces as new service pistol and successor of the venerable Colt .45 Government Mod. 1911 A 1. On 174 pages alone (!), the author retraces and relates the various army and air force trials, the competitors and the maze of brazen incompetence and sham which surrounded these proceedings. Anybody who is interested not just in Beretta pistols, but in modern military handguns and their selection procedures in general, should thoroughly study this treatise, which alone would be be worth the book's price.
Far weaker, however, are the other sections of the book. Long arms (shotguns and rifles) are treated very superficially with a few general comments, with hardly any substantial facts and information. Target pistols are barely outlined. And while the much-collected pre-1951 pistols of Beretta are indeed covered succinctly, this is not done in any scholarly or well-researched manner; neither the wartime sub-varieties, nor productions figures, nor foreign contracts have been listed. Totally lacking is any indication of sources (the author has included many Beretta factory photographs, but older archival material seems not to have been used), and even a slight hint of a bibliography - zero. The volume is thus not a collector's handbook, nor a scholarly study; it is a coffee-table book which gives well-readable general information arranged around a weighty central essay (Model 92 pistol).
Gangarosa's style is easy-going and clear, and - appreciably - it is not as over-enthusiastic and glowing as in J.B. Wood's previous work, which showered its subject with superlatives on almost every page, regardless of how much or how little the covered various pistols might have deserved it actually. In contrast, Gangarosa remains quite sober. Illustrations are decent (black-and-white), but lack explosion drawings, parts lists or marking details; the book is thus of very limited use for the gunsmith or collector. The final, "definitive" handbook on Beretta firearms therefore still remains to be eagerly awaited...

Very informative book with excellent pictures. Well written and talks about what you think it would be about. Even if its for a book report or you are just getting into collecting or firing guns or are like me and Beretta is my favorite hand gun of all time. I enjoy reading aobut the history and learning the things you might not have known.
