    Let us know how she likes it when she shoots it.

    Very smooth and accurate

    All in all good as expected from Beretta. However, one thing could be better. It's missing night sights. and no company makes them for 80x, at least not yet.

    Correct, it's intended for DA/SA condition 2 with a round chambered and the hammer decocked (I'm sure or manual also recommends safety on with this). That intermediate position on the safety is too fickle to be endorsed as a safe carry method by Beretta.

    Given that that is the case, I would really like to see a version of this gun without a manual safety. Perhaps a decocker-only lever set sold at the Beretta store?

    For me, someone who carries condition 2 all the time, having a manual safety seems like a liability since it might get accidentally bumped up, and i dont have deactivating/riding the safety as a part if my muscle nemory on the draw. It also seems like it would make decocking slower as you need to decock, and then deactivate the safety.

    A 'G' model has certainly been discussed. The 80x is just starting it's lifecycle, so there's a lot in the works to spiderweb out on this thing.

    You absolutely have my attention!
    - “G” variant.
    - .32 ACP version even better.

    Anything else?

    I feel comfortable confirming threaded barrels are on the timeline. Anything else, use your imagination.

    While were wishing:

    I would like to see a plastic version, with an interchanegable backstrap that mimics the traditional Beretta grip angle. I imagine it would come in about 21-22oz, which to me is light enough to carve out a clear niche below my normal carry guns.

    I am interested. I have an old 84 (no suffix) and a 92X that I converted to G by using an official off Beretta's website. It's a great gun, but it's quite large. The poor old 84 suffers from a massive peening and it's a display gun now. I was actually considering if I should get a surplus 84F as a shooter.

    I was always told the recoil spring replacement interval on the old Cheetahs was about 500 rounds. That should help avoid peening (though it's too late for that gun now, sadly). You can actually still get recoil springs for the old no-suffix guns. I'm trying to remember if it was Wolff that sold them, but it's a slightly different coil diameter than the more modern (BB-suffix and later) guns.
