    New 92FS

    I couldn't turn this one down. Walked into LGS today and they inform me they are having a blow out sale. Ok says I, let's look at the 92FS. A short time later I walked out the door with a brand new 92FS for 496.00 plus sales tax. You had to pay cash only to get the deals but every gun was on sale.

    I just picked up a new one of these four days ago. The price you paid was great... good for you.

    Congrats to both of us then. I love it so far. This is my first 92.

    Damn nice. I would suggest getting a D spring for it. You will pull about 3lbs off the DA pull and about .5 pounds off the SA pull. It is a factory part, and you will have no reliability issues. If you need any assistance, PM me.

    The beretta 92 is my favorite platform, even after all the various handguns I have owned over the years.

    Mine, too. I have owned four Taurus TP92's and still own one which is two years old. I just wanted the original to see how it is. Taurus does have Beretta beat in one area. Their safety/decocker is a better design than Beretta's. However the Beretta does appear to be better in most other areas.

    I ordered a D spring three days ago from Brownell's. As I write this, it's in transit.

    My D spring is on order. The DA pull could use some help.

    Yes, it's less than desirable. I am not a fan of double action pistols, much preferring DAO designs for carry and home defense. But I do now have three DA pistols; the new Beretta 92FS (Italian), the aforementioned Taurus 92AF, and a CZ 75B. Of these, the CZ appeals to me the most but then I have not yet fired my new Beretta. I'm going to wait until I install the D spring before taking it to the range.

    I have a ton of DA/SA pistols, mostly Sigs, so I am used to the concept. I also have a CZ. It's a SP01 Shadow Custom with the best DA/SA trigger I have ever shot. I also have a SAO in the Sig X Five Level One. That has the best SA trigger, fully adjustable for weight and reach. I look forward to the D spring's arrival.

    I did install a 13-pound hammer spring in my CZ 75B. The factory unit was 20 pounds!! Much too heavy as far as I'm concerned.

    I receive the "D" hammer spring this evening and installed it. If you want to see the results of the trigger pull weight for before and after this install, go to my post about my Christmas present (dated 12/16).

    The original poster will need to buy the USA style lanyard pin too - since the Italian made ones have a roll pin.

    Here is the pin: http://www.brownells.com/handgun-par...prod28359.aspx

    And here is the D spring: http://www.brownells.com/handgun-par...prod27930.aspx

    I think once you do shoot the Beretta, you'll love it. It is very comparable to the CZ, maybe a little smoother. The thing about the CZ is that grip. Man, is it nice.

    I can tell you right now that between the two of these pistols, the CZ 75B feels better in my hand. Better balanced and a better grip. But then these sort of impressions are highly subjective so one can take that with a little more than a grain of salt.

    It did take a little effort to remove the roll pin but once it was out, it did seem to go back much easier.

    Did you have to order a new lanyard pin? Is your gun Italian or US made?

    The Beretta 92FS reminds me of Kate Beckinsale and Halle Berry. They've been around awhile and we've seen them many times, but holy shiite are they still sexy.

    I will have a 92FS Compact before 2015 ends, that's for sure!

    Update, new D spring came in and I installed it in about 5 minutes. The easiest mainspring change I have ever done. DA pull is much, much better. I also installed a new set of LG-402M lasergrips. They feel very nice and hope to fine tune the new laser in tomorrow if the weather holds out.
