True that Gander Outdoors has the Berretta 81 but the Good Sam discount is NOT applicable to the Beretta 81 Sep 2019.

I ordered a M81 and a M81 BB "Standard grade" from AIM Surplus. The M81 has a little exterior finish wear on the safety and mag release button, trigger guard, but the bore is mint and strong rifling. I would have rated it at VG. The M81 BB actually had about the same finish wear BUT the rifling is almost smooth, was disappointed with that. Would rate it at G+ or VG-. Have no idea where this grade rating of "Standard" suddenly appeared in the "firearms business" with all these Berettas that were imported. I'm used to Poor, Good, VG, or EX, Mint.
Anyway as a comparison I came across the Gander offering also rated at "Standard" at the special pricing. So I ordered one, all I had to do was have my FFL email his FFL to Gander and I was good to go. So YES, they ARE required to collect sales tax by some states, yes they charged $9.95 for shipping , which was less than the $18 from AIM. My FFL's transfer fee was $15!
The pistol arrived and I was pleasantly surprised by condition, not mint BUT EX to EX+. The bore is mint with strong rifling. I'd certainly buy again IF I needed a 4th M81 Series. LOL ( I've also got the M84 in 380 acp, but had to put Pachmayr grips on it to make it more comfortable to shoot). I kind of "assumed" Gander would be selling something they would display in one of their stores was the reasoning behind my comparison test and in my case it worked out very well. I like the white sights on the M 81 BB so will probably sell the M81. They ARE very nice shooting pistols. Plus you can get original manuals from the Beretta website for one cent plus postage!

Can anyone comment on the condition of the 81BB's being sold by Gander Outdoor? I get the impression the condition varies somewhat by vendor.

Mine was in great condition. No rust. Minor bluing wear. Rails showed barely any wear at all.

No rust, some blue wear on the steel slide, but no rust. Get yourself one, you will enjoy it.

Two weeks ago, you can just buy one for 40$ from official beretta store but it slept out of my mind and next time I checked they were sold out. Gun is worth to have a spare mag. I would buy two new and sell original one as it was a bit in rust.

What cool about this BB model that putting gun on safe also lower the hammer. In regular 81 model, you need to slow drop the hammer by finger and it is so easy to to just drop it and shot. So this BB model has a big safety advantage comparing what most people got from the first batch.

F versions have the decocker. BB models are mostly cosmetic changes from the 81 and 81B.

Keep in mind all spare mags are sold out at Beretta... you would need to wait for a year to get one... but Gun is great. Not so accurate as Makarov but looks more fancy

They say free shipping but then add $10 for "second day". Then tax. Then I couldn't pick the dealer I use. Emptied cart.

I ordered one and if you call customer service they will waive the additional $10 shipping. Fortunately I live close to a Gander store so no transfer fee. These are easy to shoot and very low recoil.

Yeah 32 is kinda wimpy lol. But it's a Beretta and fits in any collection.
