Beretta 84FS Cheetah: Shoot with the Greatest of Ease
Beretta 84 for Self Defense
The Beretta 84FS Cheetah is a .380 chambered pistol with a double stack magazine that holds 13+1 rounds. Basically, it is a scaled-down 92 with all the controls in the exact position. The 84FS is a pistol that is easy to shoot and ideal for personal defense.
It has features deserving of your hard-earned money, a pistol that makes every “bang” worth every buck.
1. Gun SpecsBeretta 84FS Cheetah .380ACP is a blowback, semi-automatic handgun with a 3.8″ barrel. It has a mag capacity of 12+1, 2-dot fixed sight, ambidextrous safety, and reversible magazine release. You can choose between single or double action trigger mechanism.
It has an overall length of 6.8″ and weighs 1.46 pounds. Beretta 84FS grips are made from polymer plastic but there are walnut versions as well.
2. Ease of Use and Performance
The Beretta 84FS Cheetah is an attractive pistol. It is a firearm very easy to shoot, thanks to its ergonomic design.
It feels like and fits what a pistol this size should feel. You can switch the safety simply with your thumb.
Also, you can still feel the recoil but it is slightly less if you're going to compare it to a 9mm. This is an accurate and controllable handgun.
3. Pros and Cons
The Beretta 84FS is a very snappy gun; pretty awesome to shoot. It has a nice recoil and fits my hands perfectly.
The design is of high quality. It is lightweight and great for concealed carry.
The performance is also unquestionable. The only downside of this handgun is the price.
This Cheetah might break the bank a little bit, but who says quality comes at a low price?

I had one for a while and really enjoyed it, the only reason I got rid of it was it was about the same size as a Glock 19, with the Glock being larger caliber and high capacity and I had trouble using it with IWB holsters. I prefer soft suede type holsters and the magazine release frequently managed to get pressed in so when you drew the gun the magazine wasn’t fully seated. Probably would have been fixed with a hard shell kydex holster but I ended up selling it and buying a G19.

I have owned and carried a BDA .380 Browning made by Beretta for years now. It has all the features listed with modifications such as a frame mounted ambidextrous safety, a full slide, not skeletonized and 9ll style hammer, not spur. I think the full length slide aids chambering, as with the added weight it comes forward with an authoritative snap. It also has a magazine disconnect. The double action trigger pull is not unlike that of a double action revolver, the single action pull is smooth. The slide return spring on mine is stiff, and the consequent racking requires a firm grip and pull. Overall, I found this an excellent choice for concealed carry and I expect the related Beretta 84S to be equally satisfactory as a defensive firearm.

How Much Is the trigger pull and Is it crisp and clean.Is it easy to rack?Thanx
