I stopped by my LGS today and was ready to purchase my Cx4 subcompact. I talked with the staff there and said that all I would need would be to have the safety turned into a decocker (a G model basically), that Beretta made it pretty easy to do so. You can remove one ball bearing, there is a 7 minute video on YouTube how to do it, and that Beretta even made a CCW version of the Px4 storm that is decock only.
Well, the gun Smith says that removing that one ball bearing will somehow change the safety and make the gun unsafe. I'm starting to doubt that the man realises the safety isn't even touched during this procedure and the ball bearing is merely a place holder for the spring.
If I'm wrong on this, please help me unfluff myself, but this was quite frustrating today. Hundreds of Px4 storm owners can't be wrong in their decock only models.
After I overheard one of the customers (who was supposedly a Smith collector) say that Smith never made a .38 model 67, I had all the will to buy guns sucked out of me.
I'll return tomorrow to see if the gun Smith has done any research of his own and will do the mods I want. After all, me making a purchase depends on this. I could do it myself, but I'd prefer it done by a Smith.
