Run forrest ,run :-D :-D
Should Beretta discontinue the regular 92 design for the new 90 Two?
Run forrest ,run :-D :-D
Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know if Denny has been inside/
Looks like everyone wants to get Denny instead of buying a Beretta :-D
Well, you asked Denny!
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.
I see ya'll are giving me a message, huh?
I'm just trying to get conversation going with the polls :-D
Naw, just kidding you Denny! Keep the polls coming if you like. I enjoy them... But, you did ask! hehe...Originally Posted by DennyCrane
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.Originally Posted by Vom Kriege
I say keep both. The 92/96 is a classic design that should not be abandoned. That and they are just plain sexy :-D
Looks like Denny has to worry about 4 people hunting him down
We all know that Denny is a poll slut.
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.
I voted to keep both. The 92/96 is a classic!
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.
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.
