As far as the 92/96 still being manufactured, the 96 is no longer being produced or on Beretta's webpage. The M9A1 will be produced as long as Berretta has the contract for this model with the government. As for the 92, I wonder if it will go the way as the Couger did ? This would be a great addition to the Stoeger line up. Afterall Stoeger is a subsid. of Beretta.
    An overhaul would be if the whole configuration changed, like a closed slide (never gonna happen, for good reason) and redesigned frame. All the stuff you mentioned is facelifting. The vertecs and M9A1s came with rails but no useless (imho) cover, the new mags still fit the 92s (mags were not really that new, the baseplates and followers were the real changes). The frame is still identical and compatible with the 92. The only real improvement was the dovetailed front sight, the sights themselves aren't that different except for the use of superluminova instead of the "high definition" (much better) white paint.

    The 92s and variants (like the Steel I) are still being produced in Italy and MD, production was cut back to fulfill contract orders.

    I guess I'll have to shoot a new ninety-two, because I am not sure if I like the new look. Something just doesn't look natural about, maybe I am just resisting change

    Someone email Beretta and see what the offical line on the subject is the 92 will contiue or the 90-two will be the replacement. Has production been scaled back?

    I read that Beretta recently recieved an order for around 30,000 or so, new pistols for US milltary forces. I would find it hard to believe they would discontinue such a popular model.

    I think things have changed - Last year, the company did state that they would discontinue the 92 and only sell the M9 with the new rail, and the 90-Two. It seems that they must have changed that position. Also, I see tons of INOX 92s now, and that was supposedly discontinued as well.

    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.

    Im 33 years old and grew up dreaming I was Mel Gibson in lethal weapon or Bruce willis in Die Hard movies.
    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.

    My battalion had no significant problems with the M9s we took to Afghanistan.

    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.

    HadEmAll, I'd like to know more about the 92 Compact. Perhaps a pic along side a full size?

    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.
