    Hi I think the date codes are posted somewhere. If your 92fs is made in Italy the date code is stamped on the frame and is as follows.

    I - 1945; II - 1946; III - 1947; IV - 1948; V - 1949; VI - 1950; VII - 1951; VIII - 1952; IX - 1953; X - 1954; XI - 1955; XII - 1956; XIII - 1957; XIV - 1958; XV - 1959; XVI - 1960; XVII - 1961; XVIII - 1962; XIX - 1963; XX - 1964; XXI - 1965; XXII - 1966; XXIII - 1967; XXIV - 1968; XXV - 1969; XXVI - 1970; XXVII - 1971; XXIII - 1972; XXIX - 1973; XXX - 1974; AA - 1975; AB - 1976; AC - 1977; AD - 1978; AE - 1979; AF - 1980; AH - 1981; AI - 1982; AL - 1983; AM - 1984; AN - 1985; AO - 1986; AS - 1987; AT - 1988; AU - 1989; AZ - 1990; BA - 1991; BB - 1992; BC - 1993; BD - 1994; BF - 1995; BH - 1996; BI - 1997; BL - 1998; BM - 1999; BN - 2000; BP - 2001; BS - 2002; BT - 2003; BU - 2004; BZ - 2005; CA - 2006; CB - 2007;

    As for +P ammo, the original manual states "We do not recommend the extended use of +P or +P+, or submachine gun ammo because the chamber pressure may reach or exceed the proof load pressure decreasing the major components service life expectancy."

    Cheers.

    If you didn't find what year from the info above you can go to Beretta"s website. I use Wolf 14lb extra power recoil springs, so I don't worry much about shooting +p ammo and I've had my 92 for over 18 years. Likewise, I only shoot +p to get the feel for accuracy and recoil in my self defense ammo, so, I wouldn't shoot 1000 rounds at one range visit of +p+ ammo, but the 92 can handle it. Generally most people shoot range ammo for the most part and use +p ammo for carry. Remember to always change recoil springs when needed as they act like a shock absorber on a car. I believe fresh recoil springs up to 5,000 rounds or less is a major component in prolonged service life in the 92 series of pistols.
