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'm feeling the urge for a 90-Two now that I have a 92FS
I am picking up a 90-two tomorrow, but think the 92 should stick around as it is a classic in my book.
in the april edition- american rifleman- beretta won another contract with the us army for 450,000 92fs's - must be working fine for our troops- i know mine is.
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.
Definately need to keep both. Both are excellent models
Keep the 92, a classic.
Beretta still sells the Cheetah which was designed in the 80's. It actually cost more NEW than a 92.
It's called Classic Design. Both models are sexy good looking metal pistols.
They will be around for a long time.
I think they should do what they did with the beretta cougar 8000.
Send the manufacture to Turkey then drop the price.
After owning the stoeger cougar I'm looking for another Stoeger/Beretta bargain.
The 92 would be perfect.
I say keep both. The 92/96 is a classic design that should not be abandoned.
I'm sure both are great guns (I know the 92F is) .
The 92F shoots just about as well as any of my other guns.
And I actually think it is nice looking.

If they are still selling well I think they should continue, I mean why not. Arent they in the business to make a profit? If it is not selling then faze it out.
I say keep it........and then dovetail that darn front sight!!
Keep the classics, trash the Ninety-Two. It's a design that trys to solve a moot point.
Dovetailed front sight
Doesn't matter much to me either way, as my Model 92 is a longtime friend, not going anywhere soon, and there are millions of parts out there if something should fail. I think the 92 is the Ferrari of handguns as far as looks go. The 90-two looks like a pellet gun to me.
Love my 90-Two but no need to kick out the 92 they are great as well plus there's WAY more stuff for the 92 they still don't have jack for the 90-Two.
