      Well, I missed the poll, but I'm going to vote to discontinue the older 92/96. I think the 90two is deffinately a good replacement fo the older models, I don't know of anything that makes the 92/96 better than the 90two. The second reason I think the 92/96 should be discontinued is to lower production costs and hopefully lower the cost of the 90two.

      There's room for newer models but the 92/96's are classics and should be hung on to.

      I expect that it will continue to be produced for as long as it is still the primary official sidearm of the US armed forces.

      They will be making the M9A1 - Same grip as the old 92, but with a rail - I think it was the 92SD that was similiar. Might have my letters slightly off, though.

      Let's keep the 92. I know the 90Two is supposed to be a vast improvement over the original, and it probably does have its merit, but I think the Beretta 92 is a classic design that should be hung on to. Much like the 1911.

      My '92 is one of my favorite guns to shoot. I hope they keep it around forever.

      Seriously? The 90two is a facelift model. And not all facelifts make the new model look better. I'm not a fan of the rail, the grip is ok, the rounded corners are an improvement (I guess...), but the name should have been changed, like add another letter to the model designation or something new altogether. Having the same name for the two calibres is somewhat confusing, espescially if you're used to the old system. There should be a "no rail" option. With the lack of publicity Beretta has shown for its new models and the low availability in certain areas, I don't think sales are really going to take off and surpass the 92/96. As long as the military retains the M9, there will still be 92/96 manufactured. The 92/96 model lineup has been trimmed waaayyy back, but the original and best (to steal a line from Kellogg's) 92 will always have a spot in the hearts of Die Hard and Lethal Weapon fans everywhere.

      Actually more than just a facelift - more like an overhaul. 90-two pistols feature a removable wraparound grip in two sizes (standard and slim), rounded and snag-proof external surfaces, rounded trigger guard, accessory rail supplied with a cover when not needed, increased mag capacity (17 rds), internal recoil buffer, and superluminova night sights. 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.
