    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.

    No way for the 92 to be retired.
    I'm not alone!!!! That's why the 92FS was my FIRST pistol I ever bought.

    Thanks for the reply. Why does there seem to be such a premium price on guns around here? I know I'm in California, but it's still the same hunk of metal right? Is there something else to it? At least 2 local shops have similar prices of $700+ for the 92FS INOX, and that price has remained similar for the 2+ years I've been drooling.

    Well... you are in the PRC (Peoples Republic of Cali). Might have something to do with it.. I'm surprised the Ministry of Arms Control will even allow such sales of arms to private subjects at all.

    Then again, all jokes aside, the 92FS might just be a popular piece in the shops out there. At those prices though, I'd be shopping their FFL rates to receive ordered guns instead. Keep 'em honest.. That's why Al Gore invented the internet after all.

    I am picking up a 90-two tomorrow, but think the 92 should stick around as it is a classic in my book.

    Wow, I can't believe I missed this one. I had to vote to keep it, since I am a Beretta fanboy. I love my 96, and I'm looking to buy a 92. I figure same gun, cheaper ammo, is a good deal.

    Actually, I am debating between the 92 and the Stoeger Cougar. But, they, they are all in the same family, right?

    The 92/96 is a classic design that is still relevant, it is one of my favorite gun designs on the market

    As far as I'm concerned, you can't go wrong with a Beretta, so the "more the merrier" rule applies here.
