I gave the kit a 3-start rating, it would have been a 5-star rating but Beretta sort of let me down. The kit is a 5-star kit but I had problems. As you will read in other reviews, the slide doesn't sometimes come all the way forward after firing. I thought it was a weak spring, but it wasn't the problem. The problem is the aluminum (slide), to aluminum (receiver), drags on one another. You need, (this should be supplied with the kit), to purchase lubricant FOR aluminum to aluminum slide contact. To take care of the drag and wear I had, I bought zinc anti seize, Gun Butter trigger & locking lug grease, (medium), Mil-COMM TW25B, and Battle Born PTFE fortified grease. Any of the four WILL solve your dragging and lubricating problems with the kit. Depending on the temperature where you are shooting, one may be better than the others. The gun butter and Battle Born are the thinnest, and the Mil-Comm and zinc anti seize are the heaviest. I've used all, and they all work well.
