Good to hear you had success with the gun. What I've heard over and over is that the Inox version has been far more reliable than the standard model. Some theorize that it's the added weight of the Inox slide.For what its worth, I owned a Beretta Tomcat Inox about two years ago and really liked it. The trigger was exceptional, and rapid-fire groups even with one hand were remarkably tight. In fact it held good groups out to about 50 ft (5-6in) for such a small gun. I did have to finesse the mag followers a little to get the first couple of rounds to feed reliably (made the initial angle more steep). After that it digested about 800rds of hydrashoks and silvertips as well as ball ammo no problem. Got rid of it on a trade-in along with a CZ on a deal I should have thought about a little more. Oh well, such is the life of a habitual horse-trader.
