Yes, I've been contemplating getting a refund and going with the lithgow or CZ, but I've waited this long so what's another month or two? I'm really hoping it will be worth the wait and I haven't got the first batch that may be riddled with problems.

I was actually told by a Beretta rep at the gun show that they would be delivered in August (about a month from the show). The main thing that gets me is that Beretta haven't communicated anything to people that purchased the gun or even the store as to the delays up until now? I think if I was told they have some teething issues they are sorting out I would be happy they were sorted before they send me the gun, but they have been pretty tight lipped about the reasons it's been so drawn out.

It could be more than a couple months away mate - especially as we encroach on Chrissy.

If I was buying a new rifle today it would be a CZ and I'd expect my grandchildren to be shooting it in 50 years. I own three in both rimfire and centrefire and would not hesitate to buy another if I had the need. One proviso - if you want a walk around rifle don't go for the Varmint model. I did and it's a great shooter but heavy to lug about and shoot offhand. The Classic, Lux etc are just as accurate and much more carry friendly. If spotlighting from a vehicle my Varmint is a laser.

Actually weight is good for shooting offhand

YMMV. An extra 500g or so is significant to me.

I was just sitting here thinking my gun should be here in the next few weeks...... Hopefully! It dawned on me that the pta I had would have expired by now! Will I have to wait another 28 days as I let the pta lapse, due to waiting for the gun for so long? Or will it be a standard 7-10 days?
