I tried out my 40 caliber Model 96 Slide Assembly on my M9 today. It is more accurate than my 9MM. The recoil is sharper. This Model 96 Slide Assembly can be ordered from Cheaper Than Dirt. http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/GNS049-47467-1968.html



The stock number is GNS-049 and the regular price is $199.97. The Buyers Club price is $179.97 This is a good way to upgrade your existing Model 92 to a Model 96 40 caliber. The Model 96 Slide is a Law Enforcement model so it has a decocker but no safety. When I shot it from a bench at 25 yards I had several groups under 2 inches. The one I received came with night sights but that may not be standard.

I own a 92fs stainless finish and a 92 centurion in black matte. Besides barrel length, they are pretty much identical. Their construction is flawless and their finish is the same. I have owned them for a little over 7 years now and not once, have i ever had a jam or malfunction of any kind. I attribute this mostly to the outstanding construction of these handguns, and partly to my strict cleaning regimen, which should be followed with all firearms. 5 inch groupings at 25 yds are a standard with these weapons. Concealed carry is a breeze, easily hidden under the arm or on the belt. Mag capacity is outstanding, and reliabilty is above par. I would suggest these firearms for all around use,from concealed carry to target and home protection. all around perfect handgun.

I have owned a 92FS since 1996. It has never malfunctioned. The single action trigger pull is nice and it feels good and points well. I carried this as a duty side arm while working on an armored car due to capacity of 15 rounds and double action on first shot. Another guard told me his stainless 92 does not have as nice of a trigger pull as the non stainless versions. I would only use Beretta or any Italian manufactured mags, anything else and your asking for trouble. Accuracy is very good as is the matte finish. Beretta has new sand resistant mags for desert use. I have no military experience with the 92 so I cant comment on that aspect. I no longer need a duty weapon so my Beretta is stored, and I must admit switching back to the Colt 1911 if that tells you anything.

I own the 92fs and i like it alot but i am having a problem with mine. After the last shell has ejected the slide wont remain open so i know i dont have anymore rounds. The only reason im wondering what is wrong is because it makes me dry fire and i know thats bad for your gun

I bought a 92FS off a friend who purchased it sometime during the 80s I believe. The pros I enjoy the most out of it are: 9mm is cheap and plentiful, hi-cap mags (where legal), easy to field strip, and the low recoil is great for follow-ups. I havent any cons to list myself, but it is often mentioned that the 9mm is a questionable manstopper. Im not stating that as a fact since Im no ballistics expert, but what is true is that as far as sidearms go, SWAT and Special Forces usually prefer the .45 Auto, and that has influenced what my own self-defense preferences are.

I picked up my new FS this morning and took my son (14 yrs old) to the range and we put 150 rounds thru it; not a single miss-fire, not a single jam. BEAUTIFUL gun! Ive wanted one of these since getting out of the Marine Corps in 88. It was well worth the wait (had to do with permission from the wife and turning 40.) Some of you reviewers may put it down, but Im down with the folks who see this pistol for the masterpiece that it is. Its a classic. You can have your Glocks. They dont fit my hand like this handgun does.
