    No model 92?

    I just picked up a new "wish book", yesterday. (The Complete Book of Guns-2007 Buyers Guide, Harris Pubs.) The Beretta 92 is not listed. They list the 90-Two, and a "90" and under the "90" they mention the M9A1. I wonder if the designation was changed to "90" to avoid confusion with the "90-Two". There are other details listed, but I'm not all that familiar with the minute details of the models.

    Room for both in my book but by far prefer the 92FS.

    The 92 has been the standard for police issue pistols for years now. It served my dad faithfully. He swore by it. I would be floored if beretta changed it to dramitically now.

    I personally believe it would be Beretta's biggest mistake to remove it from the line up. The 92/96 is the "Flagship". Besides the fact that the design is durable, reliable, and accurate, there are two guns that I own that "Feel" perfect in the hand. The first one is the SigSauer P232 w/ Hogue grips, and the other is both my Beretta 92FS and 96FS.

    Like you guys, I too love everything about the 92 and on the one hand would hate to see such a beautiful, classic, historically significant, and effective firearm be discontinued.

    On the other hand if it is, I have an instant collector's item!

    I voted keep it.

    No way for the 92 to be retired.

    makes me wonder what it really costs to make a gun like this?
    Economic considerations to make guns , and sales volume, seem to dictate when a manufacturer stops making a gun.

    my point is - sometimes i am amazed that there are so many models out on the market

    This poll is ridiculous and meaningless ONLY because it presumes that Beretta gives a damn about what gun owners think, including their customers, while their track record and warranty return policies prove that they don't really.

    Well, obviously Beretta's concern is making money. They're a business, and they exist to make a profit.

    Don't get me wrong, Berettas are my favorite pistols. Fortunately they work right out of the box in most cases, at least the ones I have and have had.

    3 92's, 1 92 compact, and currently a 90two, 2 PX4's, and a little 950 .25.

    Never a problem with any of them.

    I just found out how much Beretta cares about their customers when I developed rear sight problems on a new Neos .22.

    When they expect you to pay $60 overnight air to return a $200 Neos for obvious warranty work, you can't help but be PO'd, when S&W, Kimber, Kahr, and others send you a return authorization.

    And that's after you spend up to an hour waiting to talk to an actual person.

    That's my point.

    I have herd a lot of good things about there customer service. I know some people on another forum who had a few problems with their PX-4 .40 with "trigger sting". They sent them to Beretta in Maryland and Beretta paid for the postage and instead of repairing the problem, they gave them a whole new gun. But this was just a few months ago, maybe there customer service has changed.

    I don't understand the question.


    The 92FS should stand.
    Who in their right mind would suggest different?
    It's the USA sidearm and also the sidearm of several other countries.
    other than the 92FS - stop production..............................
    Bring back the Nickel plated 92FS - it's pretty.

    Sorry, the 92FSC is one of the "have had's". Sold it just about 3 months ago to fund the purchase of my second PX4.

    But I did keep it for quite a few years, and it was absolutely reliable with everything I ever put through it.

    A little shorter (1/2" or so) in length and height (13 round magazine capacity instead of the full size's 15), same thickness. Shares many of the same components, such as trigger, hammer, locking block, etc.

    I used it for carry back when I first started carrying in about '96, because I found the full-size 92FS's too large.

    But I've found out how to carry better, and carry a 90two quite often.

    Anyway, the Compact is nice, and I have nothing bad to say about it.

    Well I'm stumped. . . .

    I went to my local and very good gun shop yesterday to pick up a 92FS that they had for $429.00 that had had maybe 50 rounds through it and ended up with a new 92FS marked Police w/3 magazines. The manager told me that Beretta was now discontinuing the 92 inf favor of the larger, uglier 90-two. Just for kicks I looked at the modified mismated abortion and bought the 92FS new for $449.00 as it was one of three department purchase over run guns for a local department. I don't like the grip/profile/dust cover rail cover (what's with that?). I'll keep my 96's and 92FS for the duration. And yes, Beretta could stand some customer service adjustment, they're just too big for personal service in any way.

    As long as sales are strong, they should continue production. And it is a Classic.

    i wonder why the question was asked other than there is a new beretta?
    Tell me any other handgun that was tested for 175,000 rounds and never failed.

    Only sales will finish it off.
    and who else is buying it other than the military?
    Beretta made 47,043 in the USA in 2006 (latest year of published data) and most of those went to the military
    That number clearly shows that compared to other sales of 9mm handguns it is not real popular

    The 92 is a great gun from what I hear. I will have to try to find a 90-two and handle it. Pehaps it is a good replacment.
    If not, I here there is a small upstart company, Glock or something like that. They may have a suitable replacement for those of us that are looking for semi-autos with a history.
    And I am sure that Beretta will not notice the missed sales from a gun that is not worth keeping in production.

    This seems to be the thread that will not die.

    I still can get a 92 at my local gun shop...2 and a half years after this poll/thread started. Maybe I'm mistaken and they are all M('s or Differentiations on the old 92, but they look like, essentially, the same gun to me!

    Why stop making the civilian version of the gun that is still contracted by the government?

    Went to the local range/shop last weekend and they've got 92's in stock. That's in Sacramento Ca. I've got my eyes on an INOX, but the $725 they want for it out here stings. Will probably bite the bullet once my wallet gains some weight.
