Perhaps
some Sigforum-ers in the industry might know.

I don't need one, but I almost surely would acquire one.

They're imported every few years. If you see one, jump. Even less often imported are the 22 versions, the Model 87 Cougar.

Yeah, and it's one of the .22s I'm drooling over.

RichardC, FWIW, Black Market Arms has some 84Fs or FSs in stock, and they may be available elsewhere too. DKArms seems to have the last stash of surplus 85BBs. Quality and prices have been coming and going over the last month on ChodeChoker.

87’s are the best. Seriously worth whatever it takes to get one. (Within reason).

I'm not really interested in a blowback .380 of that size... If it was locked breech I'd be more interested. There are better .380 options out there these days. The 87, though, is very intriguing...I'd love to see Beretta start making that one again.

They’re being made, just not imported.

They're's always a "better option." It may just be what someone wants, though. If it was about practicality, I'd own 3 guns.

I’m glad to have mine. I never shoot them but I’d never get rid of them.

Had a Beautiful Blued Browning, traded it. Wish I had not. These were made by Beretta.

I feel your pain.


There are sooo many Brownings I wish I had accumulated.

But you just had to post in this thread. Wink

It's OK, no harm, nor foul.

They seem to make them in batches - when they sell out, it's always "they are discontinued", then a year later some show up.

I have thought about getting an 84/85 many times, but my 87BB gets shot plenty as it is so a 380 version wouldn't see much use.

Lots of police trades out there in the past year or so as well, some in pretty good shape too.
