Beretta 92FS Italian 15+1 9mm 4.9"
by Luke P Date Added: Monday 07 April, 2008
I have an Italian 92FS for my range queen, and love it to death. In stock getup, it's as reliable as anything else I've shot, including my Hk USP Compact carry piece. Recoil is almost laughable due to the heavy frame and slide. Accuracy is much better out-of-the-box than any other similarly-priced pieces I've seen, including the few comparable XD's and Glocks I've fired. Plus, it's just absolutely gorgeous, and there's no shortage of goodies out there to make it even more so. It's Italian, and has a very solid, close-tolerance and extremely well-built feel to it. Definitely an air of extremely high quality.

My 2 gripes:
1. Muzzle flip in stock trim is a little excessive for a full-metal, full-framed 9mm due to the heavy slide and relatively weak recoil spring.

This is VERY easily fixed by installing a stiffer spring, or any combination of tasty goodies. My 92 currently wears an EFK ported/extended barrel and a dual-action recoil buffer self contained guide rod and spring kit, and she shoots like a .22. Slide action is smooth as butter and there's no kick, flip or recoil whatsoever. Only gripe with going aftermarket is that the Beretta is very sensative to tolerances, and most aftermarket pieces will require careful fitting, polishing, filing, etc to exactly match OEM clearances, or else you may run into various misfeeds and fail-to-ejects.

2. See above about the fitting required on aftermarket pieces. If they're not done right, you'll lose a good amount of the flawless reliability the weapon has in stock trim. If done right, however, you'll end up with one of the smoothest, sweetest shooting guns you'll ever hold. I've heard some gripes about trigger pull, but I find the SA break to be very crisp and predictable, if just a hair too stiff and a hair too long to reset. Again, get yourself a compitition trigger/sear/hammer kit and you're left with quite possibly one of the best shooting handguns ever made.
