    anyone know anything about this? is there anything special or unique about this model? is this the model that hasen't been imported in 10 years or is it something different?

    thanx,
    TB

    Read this thread:

    http://www.handgunforum.net/beretta/...tta-style.html

    I picked up 2 - one at a local shop and one in Houston. They had lots at the Houston store originally...

    Buds also had a bunch of them (don't know how many)...

    It is true that they have not been imported in over 10 years... However, while they may be limited, so far, I doubt it was just 100 imported.

    Rumor is this is a production run for a foreign military / police order that was cancelled for some reason. I do not know if that is true or not.

    I sent this email to Beretta USA about the new 92 compact on 1/21/11.

    “Is the Beretta 92 Compact being produced again? Lately I have seen two ads about "New Beretta 92 Compact" pistols in Cabela's (SKU# 03125387) and Bass Pro Shop ads. Any information would be helpful.”


    Response from Beretta on 2/17/11.

    “Thank you for contacting Beretta Customer Support.
    We have no information on that. It is not on the list for the next year.

    Best regards

    Beretta Customer Support”

    Not long after I received the above email, the 92 Compacts started showing up at Buds and a few other places.

    I received my 92 Compact, Type L from Buds last week. I will take it out range next week. While surfing through the web I found a site (CDNN Sports INC.) that is selling the 13 round mag for $19.99. Are these mags the real thing? Has anyone purchased from these guys? Thanks for your response.

    Please let us know. BTW, I qualified with my Beretta 92FS for my Texas CCL two weekends ago. I got a perfect score on the range. I have to get use to the long trigger pull when I shoot the first round? Besides practicing, any recommendations on perfecting the first shot. Thanks.

    Get a "D" spring - it will pull 3lbs off the DA pull. I installed em in both my 92 compacts yesterday.

    Brownells sells the D hammer spring. Also, while doing that - buy the USA style lanyard pin. Italy uses roll pins to hold the lanyard in. So, ya gotta knock them out with a punch. The USA made 92s have a pin you can push out with an allen wrench or tiny screw driver...

    When ya take out the roll pin, put the USA pin in its place.

    I have this setup in all 7 of my Beretta 92 variants...

    Kewl. On my last renewal, I finally got a perfect score - using a Walther P99 A/S. Before that, I had gotten in the 240's, but never a perfect score.

    That's great that ya did that with the Beretta!

    Yes, they are factory magazines. I have purchase several magazines for my PX4, 92 FS Vertec, and Cougar from CDNN.

    Also order on the weekends, they usually include some free stuff (ear plugs, small knife, etc).

    Shipping is usually 1/2 the price too (on weekends)...

    I've ordered from CDNN tons of times in the past with no issue. You just have to be SURE to see "factory" on any mag descriptions.

    I will say that CDNN cannot apparently follow their own directions. I had a separate billing and shipping address. I have 2 different orders of mags bought seperately. BOTH were shipped to my bill address, despite me confirming the original order email info...

    The 92 Compacts are starting to show up at Academy.

    Received my mags for my Beretta 92 Compact from CDNN this past Thursday. Just as advertised-Factory New. They even threw in several foam ear plugs. Academy's here in El Paso also have the 92 Compact in stock. Finally shot my Compact at the range early this a.m. The difference between the Compact and the 92FS was the recoil felt on the 92 Compact. Recoil is manageble, but noticeably more than the 92FS. Will definitely take out to the range again for more practice.

    Very cool. Yea, I got both of my mags in too. I only ordered 2, since I had 2 with each gun. 6 total for now is good enough

    I just picked up a 45 cal cougar. after my 1st range trip, I gotta buy some of those mags now...

    Hi all,

    I went to the gun shop today and picked up a 92FS L-Compact. Never saw one before and did the impulse buy thing. Took it to the range and it shoots like my Italian INOX 92FS. Anybody have any idea how many of these are going to be out there? It is definitely a fun weapon.

    NO, we still do not know - but apparently more than 1st believes. They are getting to be somewhat common now. However, it still isn't listed as standard production by Beretta USA. We'll see. I have a feeling they will dry up soon and that's the end of it - unless Beretta sees there is a market for it and makes the right decision

    92FS Compact L

    Okay, so I cleaned the 92FS compact L that I purchased and the date stamp is for 2011 (CF). Of interest is that the recoil spring guide rod is actually metal. This is odd because my INOX 92FS (Italian) from 2009 (CD) has a polymer recoil spring guide rod. Does anyone know why the compact has the steel guide rod while the current full size 92FS doesn't? Just curious.

    Yes, they apparently didn't bother to redesign some of the small parts in polymer. I was happy to see the metal guiderod as well.

    The fullsize models had polymer parts introduced around 2003 or so.

    By chance can any of you tell me the weight of this fine looking side arm? how does she carry? Right now I'm packing a Sig P6 and that's killing my hip and lower back.
