    1st review

    A couple of years ago I qualified with my Beretta. I love the way it handles and shoots. After two years, it has never misfired. I am ready to try something new, like a Glock or Sig. It seems that they both are high on everyone’s list so I'm sure it comes down to personal preference. I’m still undecided at this time.

    I went to the Beretta 92fs when I first went away from a wheel gun. It shoots smooth and even dirty I never had a malfunction. Easy to maintain and a prooven firearm

    My primary duty weapon is the 92FS. Love it and didn't really want to carry anything else but my department went to Glock only Department. Fortunately got grandfathered in and don't have to give it up. The only thing is when carrying off-duty it does tend to be a little bulky unless I carry on the shoulder holster. Which at that point I switch over to one of my Glocks.

    This is what I carry for a primary duty pistol. I personally love the Beretta, but there are definitely better weapons out there. But i honestly think the Berette 92FS is a good all around weapon. Quality is good and it's reasonably priced. It offers decent firepower and is undeniably reliable. It does have it's bad points (as with just about anything). 1. I really wish Beretta would offer this frame weapon in a .45 cal. 2. While not necessarily a huge deal, why has Beretta not kept up with the current market and started incorporating polymers into the designs of it's large frame weapons. 3. some of the exterior components ie...trigger, safety/ decocking lever and hammer, and mags are prone to rusting (which can be a problem for a duty weapon that sit's in a holster for extended periods of time) in humid envornments. Let's face it alot of duty weapons don't get removed from the holster/mag pouches ect...and cleaned near as often as they should. If Beretta would remedy some of these issues I'm sure it would make the weapon much more desirable.

    I carried this weapon for sometime, It is a solid weapon. We used it in the service as a sidearm and I am carring a beretta 8000 on duty as I write this review. All Beretta's are outstanding weapons- recoil is not that hard so getting the site back on target is not that hard and does not take that long.,the 8000 is a double action only and compact for those that would like a d/a only and smaller. So for on duty the 92FS- off duty the Beretta 8000 (cougar). You can not go wrong with either one and they both carry a 15 round (law enforcement) Magazine- plus one in the pipe for 16 rounds. I have been carring a Beretta now for a total of almost 10years and I am thinking that I may try a glock- but if I do it will only be because I want to go to a .45 cal for more stopping power if God forbid I ever need it.

    I thought I would never say this but I miss my Glock!! This weapon has one of thr worst trigger pulls of any da/sa pistol. The new plastic trigger doesnt help. Its over priced and not worth it what was the military thinking? Weve numerous failure to feeds, bent mag lips, poor magazine will allow officers to feed more rounds then should be carried causing big problems. The receiver mounted safety is just not a good idea

    While not my first choice, or second for that matter...it's department issue so I'm forced to deal with it. It's reliable, easy to maintain, and I trust my life to it. Biggest complaint would have to be the weight though.

    I carry the 92FS on duty as well as off. It is a very reliable weapon, as I've never had a problem firing it. The only drawback is its size and weight for off-duty concealment, but once you get used to it, even that's not too much of a problem.

    I had the 92F model and shot over 10000 rounds through before it jammed up. I sent back to the factory and they repaired the barrell port and gave it some finishing touches for free. I love it and keep it stored away. My glock is and will be my duty weapon. I highly recommend a beretta 92 model for durability.

    The three is because it is average- I've owned better (Colt, Sig, S&W, Browning, Remington Rand, Ithica) and I've owned worse (Colt, S&W). It is as reliable and user friendly as any.

    I gave it up for a S&W .45 for the bullet and accuracy. My S&W and Colt .45s could keep it in an ear at 50 yards, the Beretta was doing well if it kept it in the 7-ring. Another Beretta 92 I fired could do as well as the others (ear shots), so maybe it was just the gun I got stuck with?

    Either way, no better and no worse.

    I carried the 92FS for a year, I liked the feel and weight of the weapon, but when it came to trigger pull...it was all over, we could not carry the weapon in the hammer back position, so the first round was always off target because of the excessively long trigger pull, I was more than happy to get my Glock 22 back.

    I've had my 92FS for many years and as said before, its never jammed. Recently I found two 30-round clips for it and they load great. It looks rather odd, but it's fun on the range.

    I do not like this firearm at all. I have been using this as an issued weapon for over 8 yrs. in the Marine Corps. The biggest problems I have seen with my own weapon is the recoils spring gets weak after time and will cause the locking block to brake, trigger spring breaks easily, my safety broke off once (good thing it was at the range), my slide has cracked. I won't even go in to the feeding and extracting issues I have had. The trigger pull is too long and there is too much over travel with the trigger. Overall, I would rather carry another pistol. The military keeps buying them and I can only say that the military buys from the lowest bidder. That says a lot about this weapon.....

    My department issues the 92 as our standard side arm. The pistol is very accurate and has severved me well on a daily basis. When I went through our academy I was issued a 92 because it was our departments standard issue. It never failed me in any training scenario. I never had it jam or give me any other problems. One or two officers have had problems but I would attribute the problems lack of up keep. I make it a point to strip and clean my 92 every couple weeks. The only problem with the pistol is its size. It is heavy and a bit bulky for smaller hands. I purchased a 92 for my own collection and I shoot it a great deal.

    This was the first semi-auto handgun I had ever fired. I was working for a private investigator in Huntington Beach,CA and had to "qualify" with the 92FS. I upgraded to Pachmayr grips because the grip was a bit narrow. LOVED the Pachmayrs. Also this gun field strips in about 4 seconds and is very smooth firing. Never had a stovepipe with the exception of using cheap ammo with aluminum casings, ONCE.

    Not a bad weapon at all, but as a Military Police Officer, we are stuck with it. The weapon itself holds up well under some of the most extream conditions, I can attest to this having used it successfully in Iraq, but personally, the 9mm cartredge leaves alot to be desired. Not enough knock down power for fanatical extreamests hell bent on taking you out. Required multiple shots to take down assailant, as shot placement is not guaranteed on a high speed moving target fireing an assault weapon comming straight at you.

    I carry this as a duty weapon by choice. It is extremely comfortable in the hand when the grips are modified to the front wrap-around rubber style. It naturaly points and it's high capacity magazine makes it a good weapon in a multiple shot situation.

    When good quality ammunition is used, I have never experienced a malfunction. However, with lower grade practice ammo, I have experienced some ramp/feed problems. this was solved by having a gunsmit polish the feed ramp.

    The 9mm cartride is a bit "lightweight" by today's standards where most of the bad guys have .40's and .45's. But good factory ammo - such as hydroshocks - helps even this out a bit.

    I also fing that the initial double action shot is not as smooth and tight as I would expect from such a quality weapon.

    I recently added a laser to the weapon. I would recommend that officers intending to do this consider the grip laser. This product is extremely accurate and visible in most daylight conditions. In addition, it does not modify the operational mechanics of the weapon in any way, thus reducing/elimination the ability of a smart-a.. attorney trying to use such a modification when suing over a police-involved shooting.

    All-in-all, a good duty weapon.

    Ugh. Only reason I gave this piece a 2 is that it's quite accurate. HOWEVER...
    I would never stake my life on it, I used one for quite a while and it broke way too many times, even though I cleaned it religiously. I have also seen the mythic "slide-separation" and I had to render assistance on that person at the range before the EMTs arrived. (I was off duty.) Good thing I keep a kit in my range pack. Kimber Warrior (or other well-made 1911) all the way!!

    I was first introduced to the 92F at lovely Ft. McClellan, Alabama Military Police School in 1992. Though this beautiful weapon has been demonized and pushed aside by the recent 'utilitarian' craze, there is something to be said about a gun that is just pleasant to look at. Though I am now required to carry the Glock 22, I still have a well-oiled 92FS within reach!

    Very accurate weapon at long ranges. Very balanced without a lot of kick back. Good capacity in a very easy to hold package for those of us that don't have large hands. Only drawback is that it is a 9mm and lacks the "punch" of a .40/10mm or .45.

I am keeping it as a duty weapon but i will be buying something a little smaller for off duty. The 92fs can be a little bulky.

    Since we switched from the S&W .38 Model 15 to the 92 FS in the USAF, I have really loved this gun. Accurate, steady, reliable and easy to clean and have never had so much as a stovepipe with mine. I don't doubt others have had some though, I probably haven't put as many rounds downrange as they have.

    I own a 92FS INOX and do well in compitition with it. I have carried one for 19 years. Have seen malfunctions and breakages over the years - most due to rubbish ammo or magazines - a few were locking block failures due to eleventy gazillion rounds fired with no overhaul. The beretta is a fine handgun and its main problem is military ammo - MILBALL sux in every way. Further the issue (non-beretta) mags are rubbish. For duty carry where a manual safety is required, it really is first class. That being said - off duty I carry a GLock 29 in 10mm.

    I have carried this particular weapon on duty for the last 10 yrs on the job and the 92f military version since my dept transitioned to semi-autos in 1987. With the 92f, it hits what it is aimed at, never jams, shoots all types of ammo w/o malfunction, and is easy to maintain. I had one jam in late 80's training due to an after market magazine (threw the mag away). I can depend on it to function in afight, and it has lots of rounds handy w/o reloading.

    In 9mm the 92FS is accurate, and reliable. I have an aftermarket conversion kit on mine which allows me to carry .40 cal. In .40, this weapon is a dream! It is heavy enough to make recoil almost nothing, and it's smooth as glass.

    I love this gun! My hubby has the exact same gun. I like the feel of the rubber grip in my hand. I have big hands for a woman and my hubby is always trying to fit me to a glock or something with a short butt to it. I like the Beretta because the but of the gun is the length of your hand for the most part and and it's kind of rounded so it fits comfortably in my hand. Now all I have to do is qualify with it and I'll be in great shape! LOL

    I used to swear to it. We are still issued this weapon as our primary. The italian 92fs was much then the present 92fs. The Italian has NO plastic parts. Several has jammed in my presents and we are a 500 man department. I have seen a Sig push 1000 rounds and never jam after it was dropped in a water hole standing in the rain. Sig would be my preference. Also if you shoot the 92fs limp wristed (as if you just got shot in the shoulder or chest) it can only handle 6 -10 shots before it stove pipes (not offically verified but have seen and attempted to simulate).

    I have had the 92FS for a number of years and I have never had any problems with it. From the moment I first fired off a round from it , this pistol has been fantastic. No malfunctions, hell even if I didn't clean it off right away, it still fired perfectly. Easy to take apart and put back together.

    Have owned the 92FS for 5 years now and have never had a problem with it. Would not carry anything else.

    I have my 92FS for almost 12 years now and I learn to like this gun more for every passing year. During practices in the range, I can clearly observe that no other type of handgun can compare its reliability. I bought a spare magazine (MEC-GAR) and the gun still operates flawlessly with it. One day, out of curiosity and to test it, we loaded my 92 with ammos (9mm) that failed to work in other guns and to my surprise it fired all of them without a problem. Many times my friends tried to convince me to change to a higher caliber for a better stopping power but I won't exchange anything for the reliability of my Beretta. Stopping power can be enhanced by using hollow points but a gun that fails to fire cannot even stop a rodent. For now, I can't trust my life to any handgun other than my 92FS loaded with golden saber hollow points.

    this gun it is awsome, but i did not used regulary. i just pointed my gun if the suspect ignore my command to minimize the worst thing could happen.

    It's big loud and scary and you don't want to be shot by this hand gun, with my teflon-coated ammo

    I've heard the b.s. about stove pipes and slide breakage, but when I was issued mine 24 yrs ago, it's always functioned great. Everyone was going to the wonder nines at the time and this one WON the military contract by being the best. We got rid of our 6 shooters and this thing shoots nice. Even after all these years I was still in love with this beauty and bought one for myself when my Cabelas points got high enough.lol Shot about 250 in one day through it and no problems. Sharp as hell too.

    I've carried this weapon both in the USMC and as on my job. I think the weapon deserves some respect, but I also think its time has come and gone. Like the old wheel guns, there are just better firearms out there.

    The pros for me are size (fits my hand well), fast site picture (for me it comes up perfectly).

    The downside is that it is heavy and does have a loooong trigger pull.

    After a while the safety spring gets weak and any little tap can knock that safety to the off position.

    Used this weapon on tactical teams and as duty sidearm. It is so trustable as everyday use I have one as personal protection off duty.

    I carry this daily, while not the most accurate of pistols, I can always hit 40/40 with it. Shot groups are slightly more scattered than those from my Glock, and if you drop it or hit it on something the rear sights can shift out of alignment. I know, why would I hit it on stuff, well we are pretty hard on out equipment in the Army, and everything gets banged around.
