Titanium Beretta 93R – None Before It None To Come

Chaos311clarity has some fun on the range:

That thing is a beast!  I’d still rather have a Glock 18, because Glock… but the Beretta 93R is definitely in my top 5.  The built in utilitarian fold down forward grip on the 93R is a nice feature too.

Chaos311Clarity-YoutubeBasically no muzzle rise on that thing with the forward grip and the stock!

Thoughts?  Glock 18 or Beretta 93R?

    Pretty awesome! Any Beretta fan goes ga-ga over the 93R. A custom one that is full-auto = head blown!

  3. Psshh, I’m not even a Beretta fan but the 93R is so much cooler than the Glock 18. And this one is titanium? Impressive!

    Of course in reality I’d much rather have a real SMG… But still pretty cool!

  4. Ran into Chaos at that shoot. The owner of one of those 93r’s had a Glock 18c, also.
    For what it’s worth, I preferred the Glock…

    1. I was there as well, and fired both pistols; I prefer the G18c as well.

      Maybe it’s just the ergonomics of trying to use a shoulder stock without provision for a proper cheek weld….

      1. Yeah. I felt like the stock, as low as it was in relationship to the gun, just turned into a fulcrum and resulted in more muzzle rise than I experienced with just a normal two-handed grip on the Glock.

        1. Maybe next time I’ll see about shooting it without the stock. Maybe.

              1. im gonna need you to send me one of those hahahaha

            2. Why would I buy a stock for a gun I don’t own?

    I’ve always been a fan of the 93R over the Glock 18, mainly because everybody knows about the 18 and everybody wants one and the 93R has a bit more of an exotic feel to it. Plus the 92/93/96s are just plain sexy, it’s hammer fired, AND it has the hand part that folds down. Everybody knows that parts that fold are statistically proven to be a bazillion times more deadly! But seriously, 93R Inox? Sploosh.

    1. Have you ever fired either?

      Having shot both, I would choose the G18c every single time.

        I’ve fired the 18. I found it to be rather difficult to control. In general, I’m not a big fan of Glocks mainly because of their ergonomics. They work for some people, but I’ve never been able to find one that I was comfortable with, unless a considerable amount of work has gone into the grip.

        Haven’t fired a 93R yet, look forward to an opportunity to.

        1. I can sympathize with not liking the ergonomics of the Glock; I started out with the same issue.

          I was having major rust issues with my XD (freshly oiled gun rusting up after <12 hours carry), and I had some joint issues in my strongside wrist. I finally got fed up with the former, and Glock was both the cheapest, and the best ergonomically (recoil straight up the arm rather than torquing the wrist).

          As for the 18, I've only ever fired the factory compensated version (G18C), and it is highly controllable: the barrel vents forward and up, which forces the gun down and back. Combined with the recoil (back and up), this serves to keep the pistol on target. I imagine the non-compensated version is far less controllable.

  6. Looks like the gun Travolta’s bad guy used in Broken Arrow back in ’96

    1. The non-titanium 93r in the video IS *THE* pistol from Broken Arrow. Like, for real.

  7. Something of that era made out of titanium is pretty bad ass. IIRC titanium was a PITA to get a hold of until the fall of the Soviet Union.

    Noticed on the very last shot in slow-mo, that hammer comes up looking like it’s being filmed at full-speed, compared to the slide, really shows the different operating speeds of components (probably a very light hammer because it’s Ti, though, and a strong spring to make up for the loss in inertia). I’d like to see an M16 running full-auto like that but it would be difficult.
