A beretta USA part that I ordered for £28.10 in 2015 (delivered almost six months later in 2016) is now £102.05.

Has inflation been crippling without me noticing? Or are they kicking the arse out of it?!

I don't think there's anything Gunmark could provide me with for £28.10, apart from an expensive logoed baseball cap perhaps.

We buy all our Beretta 'gunsmith' spares from GMK and they are always competitively priced (Compared to the UK alternatives) Although there does seem to have been a price increase this year.

Buy all your Beretta and Benelli spares here; https://www.omps2.it/en/ Postage is a bit steep but if you get a few people to order at the same time it takes the sting out of it and its still cheaper than Brownells!

They are very useful for parts you can't find elsewhere - I got a lightened spring kit for my Taurus LBR that's made the trigger pull absolutely excellent. It cost £12.50 or something silly for postage but it came fairly quickly and that's simply the price you pay for getting something that is otherwise unobtainable.
