    I have been looking at this gun for my next purchase. I rented one at the range and it worked great. Anyone have their thoughts on this gun?

    I just purchased the 92A1. I chose it over the 92FS due to some of the features not found on the 92FS.

    Carried a 92F as a duty weapon. Decently accurate, fully reliable, easy to field strip. Good safety features. (that decocking took a bit to get used to...big difference from the 1911!)

    Dislikes: grip was too big to be comfortable for me. First shot was always a flyer (double and single action). Seemed to settle in after the first shot. Won a few department matches with it, though.
    I feel it is an inadequate cartridge, even with LE loads. I'm one of those that prefer a caliber that starts with a .4.

    I have had mine since the mid 80's and it is one that I will never trade off or sell. The only problem that I ever had with it was because I loaded up some light 9mm loads and they weren't hot enough to cycle that huge steel slide.

    It's a very accurate gun that is very reliable. If you're the type of guy who prefers a calliber that starts with a .4x look at the 96. Same reliable platform in a .40S&W.

    And 3/2 if you are still looking to drop those magazines, send me a PM. You can never have enough...

    Here is a picture of one of my 92FS's. It was all black, or bruniton when I bought it new. I have changed out all the frame controls, barrel, trigger, mag release hammer extractor, lanyard loop, magazine base plate and grip screws for Inox. Just finished it and I think its a pretty cool looking gun..

    Took it to the range 2 times this week. Very accurate. So far I have run 200 round with no issue. This is my favorite pistol and I have a few.

    I have and really like the 92SBC. Purchased it when they were first introduced. Never had an issue. It's in my nightstand.

    A good buddy of mine owns one and it's a great gun. Great shooter, great take down, just works. If you ask people to pick top 10 9mm pistols, Beretta 92 is somewhere 2-9 on every single list.
