    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.

    I have a M9, bought it last August, very accurate and reliable with 2000 rds fired to date. One of the easiest to take down and clean, I love it.

    I pick up my new 92 FS tomorrow morning. I can barely wait. If it isn't raining Saturday, I will be trying it out.

    Your going to love it. What a well made firearm.
  9. That extra inch of barrel length probably helped with that.

    The Beretta Model 92 and its descendants is a decent, reliable military, police, and self-defense pistol. It is descended from the German, Walther P38. Originally, it was a high capacity improvement of the Beretta model 1951, with a Browning type manual safety.

    The more expensive SIG pistol outperformed it in the testing that caused the USA to adopt the B92 (with a P38 type safety and 1911 type magazine release) as the M9. SIG (Swiss Industries of War) is in a country that is not a member of NATO and Italy is a member of NATO. Politics is suspected and alleged in the selection process.

    The M9 does not have the reputation of a well made 1911 or Glock for durability. I can not lay my fingers on the exact data at the moment, but think that I remember that the USA originally rated it as 25,000 shot arm, with slides replaced every 5000 shots.

    Early in the M9's service with the US, there were some slide failures and separations that caused military shooter injuries and probably one likely fatality. Several factors were considered the likely cause of said slide problems. They included not noticing that the slide was progressively cracking and taking it out of service before its ultimate separation; the pistols allegedly having been fired extensively with +P+ ammo that they were not designed for; and a trace element used to refine the grain structure or the steel used in the series of slides that failed.

    In any case Beretta redesigned the pistol to prevent the slide from being able come back and strike the shooter in the event of a breakage. I ave owned a Taurus made clone of the original B92 (no known slide failures) for 30 years and am well satisfied with it as a high capacity, full size, reasonably accurate, reliable, police and military type pistol.

    I am confident that I have not put more than 7000 shots through it.

    Hope this helps.
