I looked at one of these and its gorgeous brushed nickel it fits my hand so nice. I know its a .380 and a bit large one at that but i love this gun. The only thing its a bit pricey at $700 new in box,so for anyone who owns a Beretta 84 is it worth the money?

It is large for a 380 compared to some you can buy today but, it has the grip and feel of a full sized gun and that can be a good thing. Concealment is no real problem. Is it worth $700, it is if you are jonesing for one badly.
Got mine at Gander Mtn. used guns. $220 and I snapped it up the second they put it on the shelf. Makes a nice backup peice also.

It's a nice firearm for around the house, but rather expensive for something you really wouldn't want to carry.
If you like it and have the money...go for it!
I'd rather be more practical and put my $$ into those sidearms that CAN be carried, or buy more ammo.
Stay armed...plan ahead for the ammo shortage...stay safe!

The Beretta 84 is IMHO, the finest .380acp made. It is a very reliable pistol. It breaks down very easily for cleaning, is accurate, has good sights, has a variety of grip styles to choose from and is small and light. It weighs the same as a Bersa Thunder, it is measure for measure the same as a CZ83. Other guns may have good features but no other combines them all into one package as the Beretta does. In short, this gun has no flaws.
I carried one for a long time and it never let me down. It is qualty through and through. One of the very few pistols that has a chrome plated chamber and barrel, making it long lasting and easy to clean.

I had one years ago. Great gun.
The smooth wood factory grips
were a little too slippery for me,
so I replaced them with Pachmayrs.
The gun will not jam.
The whole top is open, just like a 92.
Browing made a similar gun called BDA.
Spur hammer, different safety
and a "normal" ejection port.
But $700? If that's worth that much,
I wonder what my unfired PPk/s
made in Germany and imported by
Interarms is worth.
This reply is NOT to find that out...
just makes me wonder.
The 84 will never disappoint you,
like I said, a great gun.
A Glock 26 is easier to conceal,
comes in 9mm and costs less.

The 84 is truely a great 380. Not a great choice for carry due to the size to power ratio, but a great 380. Chrome plated barrel for long life, open slide design to eliminate stove pipes, good sights, and a good feel. I owned one for several years and sold it. Regretted it ever since. If you can afford it and want it, why not go for it.
