    New Addition...

    I had a little tax return money burning a hole in my pocket and thought I would pick up a 92FS. After a little looking online I stopped by my local shop yesterday with no luck. I remembered see some Beretta's at Gander Mtn. so I went by there today. They had a used 92 Elite and a new 96 and told the guy I was looking for a 92FS he said he thought they had one and want into the back. He came back with a M9 and a special edition 92FS Navy and this little guy.



    For some reason I liked the way this thing looked and felt, so, I had to bring it home. After some research the 9000S seems to get some mixed reviews so I hope it doesn't give me any problems but I think it will make a nice addition to my quickly growing collection. I'm still going to get a 92FS as soon as I find one (at a descent price).

    They are nice looking guns. When we were looking for a gun that my girlfriend was going to pick out, she really liked the feel of these. After coming home and looking at reviews, I told her to pick something else, and that's how we ended up with the Stoeger Cougar (which has been great, by the way!). I'll be curious to see your reviews as you continue to take it out and shoot it. Good luck with it, and congrats!

    The only neg thing I've read about them is the safety being very stiff, and sometimes coming off. So, I wouldn't use it that often.

    If you like the feel of the grip, then it was a good choice

    I've got it cleaned and lubed and did just a bit of polishing and ready to hit the range. Don't know when I'll make it to the range but I'm ready. I did find a 92FS this afternoon. The last one they had and said they didn't know if/when they would get anymore, so I went ahead and bought it, and for some strange reason when they called it in I got delayed . I've got not clue why, didn't have a problem yesterday , so I won't be able to pick it up until later.

    Yes - congrats.

    I caught the 92 bug again. I got one recently, and now I want to get an MP - as I miss the straight discover that the 92s use to have.

    I've also put in a D spring, a skeleton hammer and swopped out all the plastic parts for metal. IN fact, I've accumulated everything but an all metal slide safety to do the same thing with my next purchase.

    Beretta 9000

    Cruz, have you shot it yet. I thought it would be a great carry weapon for my girlfriend and with my faith in Beretta still think it's a candidate. She shoots the 92FS and the Stoeger Cougar 8000 in .40 S&W. The grip is a little large for her and I was thinking the 9000 would do very well and still provide a fairly large capacity compact weapon. We tried the "baby Glocks" and she does not like the grip angle or feel. Likes the exposed hammer as well. Post a range report when you can, please.

    I got to shoot both my new Beretta's today and both shot very well. The 9000S I was only able to get about 50 rounds down range, a mix of FMJ & JHP, and it ate everything without burping. Very smooth trigger, nice action with not much recoil. The grip is a bit on the large side but I think this helps dissipate some the sharp snap with some small guns. Very accurate. For the first 50, I'm very pleased.

    For now I won't get into how nice the 92FS is

    How nice the 92FS is . . . .

    Cruz, take a look at David Olhasso as a source, but as much as you like the 92FS now, look into a "D" spring and an Elite II skelotonized hammer. I have both those modifications as well as the extended mag release and a LaserMax LMS 1441 guiderod laser sight. You can only enjoy the weapon that much more. For installation on parts and just great general knowledge try: http://www.beretta92fs.com/ for great video tutorials on the weapon's breakdown and how to replace and maintain parts. Thanks for your evaluation of the 9000S. Sounds like a good candidate more and more.

    What does changing the "D" spring and the hammer do for you?

    D spring and Elite II hammer

    Cruz,
    The "D" spring makes the DA pull a lot more even and lighter. The Elite II skeletonized hammer looks great first of all and some say it improves lock time due to the weight reduction. I have done this to both my 96's and my 92 and they all shoot very well with no failures to date. Take a look at Shipwreck's post on his new Beretta 92FS and you will see the hammer mod. I believe it's titled "Hammer time"

    Well, I referenced this from my post earlier today:

    I do not remember the weight of the "D spring, but get 1 of those. It decreased my trigger pull quite a bit.

    I bought one here: http://www.olhasso.com/PS/parts.htm

    However, what I got was not a D Spring. A member on the Beretta Forum gave me 1, and sold me another. It works great.

    That person seems to also be selling them on Gun Broker, because they have the same screen name. Here is an auction I found from him:

    http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=123983536
    So, while I have bought guiderods, a hammer and other stuff from David O, I wouldn't buy anymore D springs from him personally.

    That's where I ordered from, so I guess we'll see what I end up getting. Thanks

    D-Spring

    Cruz,
    Compare the springs before you just change out. My "D springs" have always been a little shorter and they immediately make a difference when you install. Shipwreck had a problem with Olhasso and they apparently did not do what they have done for us in the past. I'd have to take the 96 or 92 down to see what the coil count is, but unless you have an issue, I'll leave them like they are. It's good to get a third party opinion from a credible source when researching parts, Shipwreck is such a source, very even handed. Hope all works out for you and please let us know. I have had nothing but good happen from Olhasso and that is not always the case from this post. I hate that, but hope you get what you need to do the job. Gotta get back to the job now. All the best, shoot safe. Scratch.

    Got my hammer and "D" spring today. The spring I got was a bit shorter than the stock spring, may 2-3 rings. I thought about taking a photo after I got it installed. The spring and hammer install was sooooo simple. Now, it's off to the range tomorrow.

    On a side note, I've been trying to get my wife to go to the range with me and she has finally said she wants to go, so we have a date tomorrow. A few hours at the range and dinner reservations at 8.
