Thought i read it goes back to beretta for repairs, I might be wrong.
The good news is mine has worked flawlessly for the past two years. Never a problem. I would recommend it highly as an inexpensive reliable 9mm.
Unlike golgiaparatus I think the size (being smaller) is nicer than the 92.
For any one looking for a status named gun just buy the $20 walnut medallion Beretta grips and you have a Beretta.
