    Hello, all. I'm looking for opinions on "must have" upgrades for the stock Beretta 92. I've decided to get a Wilson short reach trigger and a steel high profile mag release. I'm considering the Wolff trigger spring assembly, but I'm not sure. I would also like to find some grips that are thinner than the factory grips, but I'm not sure who makes them. Any opinions on these upgrades or suggestions of your own?

    No suggtestions! I have found mine to be near perfect the way it is.

    Hey, Moody. I almost agree. The grip size and double action trigger is just a tad too much for my comfort, and I have a hard time activating the mag release. Outside of that, it's pretty darn close to perfect for me too.

    My Beretta 92 feels better in my hand than any of my other handgun but the trigger is the worst of all my handguns. Probably somewhere in the 9-11 pound range.
    If you find a good trigger setup, please let me know.

    Hey, RC. I don't know the weight of the DA trigger pull on mine, but it doesn't feel too bad. The length of pull is what I don't like, so I'm hoping the short reach trigger will correct that. But it's funny, because I have the same complaint as you - the gun that feels the best in my hand has the worst trigger pull...and for me it's my Browning Hi Power. God that trigger!

    If you remove the magazine disconnect from the Browning, the trigger will improve and the magazine will eject.

    Seems like a metal replacement for that plastc guide rod would be a thoughty thought.

    Alpo - I finally went ahead and had the mag disconnect removed and the hammer spring lightened on the Hi Power last summer. Made a world of difference (went from about a 16lb pull to 10lb). Never liked magazine disconnects anyway.

    Yeah, I just may upgrade the guide rod as well and get rid of a little more plastic!

    You guys are no help! Here I am, trying to spend money I don't have to upgrade a gun that doesn't need it - and you're being sensible! Where are the enablers when you need them?! ;)

    All right, here you go, upgrade the magazine to a 30 rounder:

    I installed a D spring. Adjustable rear sight. The Wolf trigger return spring. I switched the mag release from left side to right side now I can reach it with my trigger finger. Changed triggers to short reach and grips to VZ. Makes it a little more mine.
    I also have the compact and made the same changes. You almost have to try and miss with the compact it shoots that good. The full size I occasionally shoot at Camp Perry when the nationals come to town in July. Live 45 minutes from there. I thing I changed the D spring out to the original bought the 22 adapter I would get lite hits with some 22's. None with the original spring.

    Gus, thank you for the reply. I hadn't even thought about flipping the mag release around, but now that you suggested it I think I might do that. Is the stock mag release reversible, or would I have to buy a new one? I really want to install the short reach trigger too. I've heard mixed reviews about the Wolff trigger spring, so I may hold off on that. My 92 is the most accurate pistol I've ever owned, so I don't want to mess with anything that might affect that.

    Best upgrade for a 92 would be to trade it for a 1911. :)
