    I've been wanting a made in Italy Beretta 92fs for years now. Several times I've scraped up most of the money to get one, and something would come up and force my hand to buy something more important. Well I was finally able to buy one. Found it on for 429. After shipping and transfer I was still well under my budget of 500. Brought it home and put 100 rounds through it without problems. Will run more through it this weekend and then put it in service. Great to add a full size service pistol to my collection and a nice step up from my Taurus.

    In my opinion, one heck of a gun. I love mine, I also have the .40 S&W version (Model 96), too. I got mine back in about 1993, directly from Beretta in Accokeek, MD.

    EDIT: I looked in my Bound Book and see that I got it in 1993.

    Sweet shooter. Always nice to get one you’ve been wanting for a good while.

    I've shot an Italian 92FS and they are great. Congratulations on finally getting her, jsjj388. She looks new.

    Great gun, I’m glad you finally got one.
    I have had a bookmark from ShootStraight on my I-pad for about a month.They have the 92fs stainless compacts w/rail for $549.

    I really like mine but it is not accurate. Could be me I don't know. I think it was until I let my grandson use it.

    I've always loved the style of how the 92FS looked. I bought the clone as it was all I could afford at the time the taurus but it quelled my urge to own one. Congratulations on a fine purchase.

    A very nice compliment to a fine pistol.
