I am a big fan of the MK-series guns, as I have all of them, and multiples of a few. I had an M9 and promptly returned it. While, overall, it was nice enough, a couple things were 100% deal breakers (for me, obviously). One, I want all metal guns, and there is not, and never will be a metal out barrel to replace the plastic one. Two, mine was loose as all get out, and another brand new one I held in the shop (while returning mine) had just as much slop in the slide/frame fit. For the record, I have a number of real-steel Beretta 92's, and they are tight, in every respect. Finally, from a function standpoint, one of the biggest flaws is that the safety/decocker deactivates the DA actuation of the air valve. Unlike, for good instance, the KWA USP, whereby if you decock the hammer, it actually is designed NOT to do that. So, you can turn right around and fire off a shot in DA. That just doesn't work with the Beretta.
The MK-series guns are ridiculously reliable. Very powerful. Quite accurate. Good value.
