Sorry if this is posted elsewhere, I can't seem to find the answer on any of the posts.
I'm curious if someone can give me a rundown of the different beretta "types", I think it is in reference to the triggers if I am not mistaken.
Basically I see discussion of 92fs or a PX4 type F...what are the differences in the mechanisms.
F, G, D, and C are trigger/hammer operation identifiers:
F = Safety/Decocker (examples are 92F and 92FS)
G = Decocker only, no safety
D = Double Action Only - usually flush hammer
C = Constant Action (aka Type C) - (new) for PX4, pre-cocked double action
L, M, and P are capacity/configuration identifiers:
L is usually a compact with a slightly shorter grip. In the case of the Cougar, it is also a lighter barrel and beveled slide.
M is a single-stack L
P (as in Cougar L Type P) is the Cougar L slide, but with a full-length magazine - The Stoeger 8000 in 9mm is identical to the Beretta Cougar L Type P
S and SB are early models of the 92 and are usually blued and have a round trigger guard.
F and FS are the more and most recent versions of the 92. ALL model 96 pistols are considered FS unless a 96D or 96G, but do not always carry the designation.
SD is a designation for "Special Duty" and will configured in a manner that would be most desirable for a duty weapon. Three examples of this are the 92G-SD, 96G-SD, and PX4-SD 45ACP.
