I have seen some early USA made INOX's that had the straight dust cover, no warnings and silver controls.
Oh, yeah, I forgot about that. And yes, it is ugly; totally ruins the shape of the weapon.

And I agree that 92Fs made in Italy are preferable to American-made guns. The American ones also have that indentation in the grips that I don't like (or at least, the ones made after a certain time period do).

I'd rather have American made over anything, with the exception of Belgian guns

The Italian ones are usually of better quality. Anyhow, I decided on the SB as they are rarer and the Inox wasn't configured how I wanted it. Here's a picture, I'll have some better ones tomorrow when I get some natural light in here.



Upon a second inspection I noticed a few more dings than I did before, but it's still in good condition considering it's age. All I need to do now is test fire it.......

It's a nice-looking gun, YNH. Congrats. But I still like 92FS Inoxes better.

You should suspend your jingoism long enough to at least discern quality differences. The problem is that American manufacturers tend to value sales over quality, which means that the production methods are going to cut corners more than their European counterparts. Between a Beretta made in the U.S. or Italy, I'd want Italian. And between a SIG made in Germany and the U.S., I want Germany (and indeed, the P226 I own is of German manufacture).

And I like the Cougar, but it's not your gun, isn't it?. Also, I prefer American and Belgian guns because I have only found a few guns made elsewhere that I like. I do not care what you like and there is very little you can say to change what I like. Between the two companies you listed as examples, there are only 3 guns that I would even consider buying (Beretta 8045, SIG P239 and that Hammerli pistol that SIG sold for a little while)

Coincidentally, I just held one of the newer-model P239s, and I can say that compared to the old ones, the slide is much more cheaply constructed.

Anyway, do you like American guns better because you're a jingoist, or because the quality is actually better?
