Reliability and overall design are important. More important than just having a .45 with Beretta on the slide. If all they did was enlarge the 92 then I would pass but a new model designed around getting the best possible performance out of the .45acp would be worth looking at. A new gun should also be visually pleasing but not at the expense of ergonomics. To be successful the new gun would have to offer something not readily available in the .45 market. I would like to see a gun without a magazine disconnect (the reason I won't buy a new S&W MP), without a grip safety (unnecessary), without a "read the manual" notice on the side (Ruger) and with a hammer instead of a DAO. Just a functional, reliable, full sized steel gun without a half dozen safety features that drive the price up. A thumb safety and decocker are enough for any semiauto.
