    I've had a 92 and it was a great gun. I must have shot thousands of rounds out of it with NO PROBLEMS what so ever.



    After I got a CZ 75...WOW! The handeling, recoil, accuracy, and the ammo this thing take (anything I feed her she shoots)!



    The Beretta 92 is an AWESOME gun, but I perfer my CZ 75!

    Just bought one, 2 year old gun, one previous owner. 'Inox" with the rail under the barrel. Has had wolff springs and a steel guide rod put in...hogue wraparound saddled on. Basically it fits my hand great, but yeah it is heavy, and large. I didn't buy it to CCW...I bought it b/c I have 3 other CCW's and I don't need a fourth. Its full size, home gun, range fun type of thing. My first gun was a Taurus PT-92, which was a piece of crap. This is a piece of art. Will report on how it does at the range.

    I am a very happy Beretta 92F owner. I am, however, thinking about putting a bit more accurate rear sight on it. Any good recommendations? I have the tool for removing the original and installing the new one. (I do realize it is a self defense weapon and the factory rear sight is designed for that purpose) I would just like a bit more control over sighting while shooting. Thanks in advance for all helpful suggestions.

    On this site I have noticed two different 92 models, the 92 and 92FS. What difference, if any is there between the 92 and 92FS?

    the standard 92 is infact a 92F and



    The difference between the Model 92F and the 92FS is the size of the hammer pin head. As a result of this dimensional difference, the Model 92FS has additional cuts to the slide and the left hand grip panel.

    I am looking at getting my first semi-auto pistol. My short list is the Beretta 92, Glock 34, S&W MP 9mm, and the XD(m) 9mm which was just released. I have read a lot of reviews but have not decided. What are some of your opinions on the better choise?

    i'd watch the sig there's been some problems with it lately. aparently just like the sr9(ruger) it goes off when its dropped just a word to the wise check out the problems before you buy. by the way the 92f sucks from personal experience with the new weapon it takes for ever to break in and needs to be cleaned constantly never seen a weapon that takes so many round to break in nearly 500 by my count till then jam city.

    FYI, 500 rounds is not obscene for a break in period!



    Whats your experience after the 500?

    Just like with a new car you need to break it in and use good lubes.



    No different than with a gun. Also use good ammo and after that you will never have a problem. Just make sure you maintain and clean your weapon. Treat it good and it will treat you good and go bang when you need it to.



    Don't treat it good and it will let you down.

    just like tex said after that time not much of a problem, although i would look into changing the spring guide to a better more sturdy style. the one that comes aith it looks plastic so get a metal one. its also why i shoot ruger most of the time almost no break in period and well its built like a tank what can you say?

    try the glock series. you'll never go wrong with this gun. i use to own a beretta 92. i sold it last year. i haven't regreted it up to now. i got a 1911 9mm just for fun shoots. i, on the other hand, trust my life with the glock.



    the beretta is a sufficient gun. that's about it.

    Welcome to the forum Dubya! You make a good point. There are so many choices out there and while forums are a wealth of knowledge, they can't pick the pistol that is "right" for you. The forum can provide excellent information, tips and good personal insight. There are several different opinions on the 92 and 96, along with their Taurus cousins. There's nothing quite as valuable as a hands on review of any firearm. I've always been concerned with this pistol due to all of the commentary, positive or negative. The reviews go from boat anchor to handgun perfection. It seems like a 50/50 purchase. It's either good or it isn't and you won't know until you've laid down the hard earned $$$. Things like trigger pull or grip angle are very subjective impressions. But when there are a high number of negative comments regarding overall reliability, I have no choice but to pay close attention. Before I'll lay down a thousand dollars for something that's going to save my butt, it's got to be undeniably reliable. That is the information that forums provide.



    GO MOUNTIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Have two FS92 in stainless. Bought the first one some 20 years ago. Have not had any problems (failure to fire, failure to eject) with any ammo I fed it, ever, unless you count one cartridge with NO powder in it! Very accurate, reliable handgun. Fifteen and one in the pipe is pretty good too. I am well over 115 kg and it is not too heavy for me to carry and I alternate with the SIG P220. After a few thousand rounds, these are clearly keepers. Keep the slide clean, use a thin coat of mil spec grease. Recoil is relatively low and methinks the firearm is just beautiful to boot.

    I have a Beretta 92fs Inox and have put a couple of thousand rounds through it without any malfunctions. I love this gun.



    With regard to reliability, our local range brought in a batch of some eastern european ammunition. Most of the guys on the range were having stoppages and ftf's when using it. I gathered up some of the "dud" ammo which hadn't functioned in the other pistols (Glocks, CZ75, S&W) and filled a couple of magazines. My Beretta fired every one of them without incident. I have factory springs fitted and use factory mags.



    Of course, I'm not blind to the gun's failings - the front sight is too narrow for the width of the rear sight, emm...



    That's about it actually, the rest is pretty much perfection for me.



    Did I mention that I love this gun?

    I have a 92f that was recently given to me. it has no rust and seems well maintained. it was never fired even though it is what 17 18 years old. Every and i meen every ejection had to be re racked. It never jammed but the ejction rounds caught sideways in the slide. I am baffled by this. Help
