    92fs

    Are these really as reliable as there website says they are? Most forums only talk about glocks and 1911s, never hear much about the 92.
    Any info would be cool, great even!

    Thanks in advance.

    92FS is a nice gun - The slide feels like it is on ball bearings when you work it by hand. Used to be 1 of my favs. I even changed out the recoil spring to a D"D spring - so the double action pull was lighter. I have owned a few over the years. I had 1 92FS for 8 years - finally sold it in feb or mar of this year - I wanted something new after 8 years.

    And, I've found a few guns to be a bit more ergonomic for my hand.

    But, the Beretta 92FS is the softest recoiling 9mm I have ever fired.

    I don't have a 92FS, but I do have a 96FS- same thing, but a .40 instead. Shipwreck is right; the slide is very smooth to operate. I've had mine for about 5 yrs or so, and it had never failed on me until my last range trip...had a FTE, but it was my fault...limp wristed (practicing strong hand for CCH class). But I'd highly recommend picking yourself up the 92. If my .40's such a nice shooter, the 9mm is probably really nice!

    I've got several 92's and 96's. I've fired well over 60K rounds through them. Other than changing the grips, the only thing I've ever replaced is springs.

    The 92fs was my first pistol. Had it for a little over 15 years. Never ~ not one failure of any kind. Pretty accurate too. Only complaint is it is kind of big in the handle but I have no intention of getting rid of it. Bonus... the mags fit in my CX4 too ~ which is another subject but a blast to shoot.

    Have just bought the 92FS Vertec, having small hands, found it very comfortable to hold, even though it only has a 10 round mag.

    I've had my 92FS for 15 years. Only started carrying it and shooting it again about a year ago. Excellent pistol. Never had any problems, it is accurate and carries 15+1.

    I've been thinking of getting one for some time. I've decided it'll be my next purchase. It's been a little while since I've fired one but as I recall it had a good feel to it. I like having a wider grip since it sits better in my big hands.

    It is a nice gun.

    The new, updated 90-Two version is kinda sweet. But, they needa come up with some rubber grips for it. The plastic frontstrap is kind of slippery.

    The Beretta is a decent weapon, it can be easily used for different sized hands, can carry a lot, and is a pretty potent calibre as long as you use hollow points. Take care of it. I had to qualify today with some pretty old guns this morning. The military really beats the shit out of their weapons, but they still work. very low recoil. I enjoy shooting it. Some day I might buy my own 96. What works for the DoD will most likely work for you.

    I shot one over the weekend, was the 1985 military issue, but fired great, slide was like a dream. "I loveded it" (compliment to the pest). Think atleast a 50% chance itll end up my first pistol.

    I have had three 92's, the first was stolen before I even got to shoot is back in 89, so I bought another one and had it until last November when I sold it with over 50,000 rounds without a single failure of any kind but for a dead round here and there, and Friday I bought my third, brand new, and have had no chance to shoot it yet. I will try to shoot it at lunch today if I have time.

    I just picked up a used 92F. There's just a teeny spot of wear on the slide, otherwise it looks new. What's the difference between the 92F and the 92FS? I just recently joined this and 3 other forums and really enjoy reading everyone's ideas and opinions. I've learned a lot. Thank you!

    Beretta 92

    I think the FS is made in the US. I have a M9 which is the same thing. I love the gun. As others have stated, it is very smooth and a terrific shooter. Very reliable and safe. Easy to strip. It is also, in my opinion, the best looking pistol in its class. The only (minor) downside is the trigger pull in DA mode. But let's not quibble.

    Shock buffs in a 92?

    Any of you guys ever used shock buffs in a 92? Had any issues with steel on aluminum frame wear?

    I think it's a great design. I've got a compact 92, one that's not made anymore. Just a bit shorter than a standard 92. Shoots great. Love the single action. I think it's a gun that should be in everybody's collection.

    Just picked a 92 fs at a gun show

    I just picked up a 92FS at a Houston gun show for my wife. She has been shooting a 38 revolver for years so she can't wait to shoot it. Hopefully this will keep her off my Colt 45 Gold Cup. Ha!
