Congrats! I did very similar and bought an m9 last year. I put a g conversion, softer spring, and some lok grips. Nice gun.

^^this! I have the same gun. I did the Ltt trigger job in a bag and the D-spring, decocker (g-kit) I think it’s called and the Ltt trigger bar and Wilson combat steel short reset trigger. The thing is a total sleeper. You’ll be very happy you did it

I was a late adopter too. I'd shot and carried the M9 at work. I picked one up much the same way you did (great price by the way!).

If you change the grips to a thinner set, if you have small to medium size hand and a OEM "D" spring, it really makes the pistol "pop" and it becomes a really great shooter.

I do recommend that you check the locking block and make sure there are no signs of wear. given that yours is a 2014 version, It should have 4th GEN locking block.

There is a beretta forum out there that is similar to SIGFORUM. If you find the right one, you'll see a great reference library (i'd pay for the info in book form).

I guess I was an early adopter. After the US adopted the Beretta, I wanted to try out this new pistol myself, and bought a commercial 92. The grip seemed awfully big to me, but it was otherwise a fine, well fitted and finished, 100% reliable pistol. After a while, I wanted to see what the runner-up SIG P226 was like. I acquired a 226. It was also a fine, extremely well fitted, 100% reliable pistol. The 226 fit me better overall, and I began carrying one every working day for several years.

Can't go wrong with whichever of these pistols fits you best IMHO.

The 226 and 92FS are the european pin-up queens of 9mm. I like both and have used those for USPSA. If you have the funds buy a S &W 5906.

+1 on the grips…I have one with the Wilson Combat ultra thin grips and it makes a tremendous difference.

Yes the FS92 / M9 is a great pistol.
My first pistol purchase ever and one I will never let go.
100% reliable and decent on accuracy albeit a little too large for concealment carry every day.

Cool

A 92FS Inox was my first semi-auto pistol and it prolly has about 3K trouble-free rounds through it.

It's assigned night-stand duty with an 18 round Mec-Gar in it and a 20 round Mec-Gar next to it.

The sound it makes when 'racking' the slide is second to none imho.

Congrats and enjoy it!!

First centerfire pistol I ever shot. Love the M9. I don't have one, and they are pretty rare in the shops down here.

Someday, however I will have one. Nice score, and enjoy shooting it. They are wonderful pistols.

I took my old 92FS out to the range today. It's been a while. I'd forgotten just how good this thing shoots. First round out of the gate at 15 yards punched out the center of the X. The rest of the mag stayed easily inside the 10-ring of the B8.

The DA trigger pull is still excessively long, but it doesn't seem to affect my accuracy any. I worked some DA/SA transitions then spent some time on the plate rack. I'd forgotten just how well the controls fit my hands, and even the slide-mounted safety was easy to operate one-handed (I'd still prefer a decocker-only G-model, though).

Shooting that gun today didn't help at all with my resolve to not go blow my next paycheck on that 92X Compact that the LGS has on the rack right now....

My 1994 92FS Centurion has been heavily modified by yours truly. Maybe it's me, but putting in the Langdon TJIAB was a daunting experience, but well worth it. Amazing SA/DA trigger. Excellent gun.

I picked an INOX model and added Ladoon trigger job in a box. It has fairly trigger pull now.

I have owned several Beretta 92 variants, but unfortunately have sold them all. As much as I'd love the look and feel (quality-wise), they just don't "fit my hand" like SIG-Sauer handguns do, so I have regrettably parted ways with them. The last I had was a 92FS Centurion with checkered wood grips; sold it to a friend at church for what I paid for it. That was around 7 years ago, and it was my last Beretta.

Interesting thing is, I DID love my Beretta Cougar in .40S&W, but the accuracy sucked compared to an H&K USP40, so I traded even-up and never looked back at the Cougar either.

Is there any difference between the 92FS and the M9?

Differences? Yes. Functionality? No. Basically 100% parts interchangeability. Some people like having a “military” sidearm. M9 is not the best of breed though. Stock trigger is not as good as 92X, no Vertec grip option, no rail, no front sight dovetail, etc. If you don’t care about the M9 designation there are better options. The 92X in any incarnation is probably the best stock version they have ever made. Vertec, dovetail front sight, much better stock trigger, very grippy stock grip panels, radiused backstrap, rail unless you hate rails, factory G option, etc. Oh yea, it’s optics cut although I’m not a fan of 92 and optics. I put an rmr on my 92X Centurion just to try it out. Works great but it is mounted high and looks, to my eye, a bit goofy.

I am recent member of the Beretta 92 owners group.

I haven't had a chance to shoot it [or anything] much, but it feels nice- after spending a lot with Langdon Tactical.

I need thin grips on handguns and I want short reach triggers.

After shooting it, I realized why they are so popular.

To be honest, I like my 1911s better- but I always wanted a Beretta 9mm handgun.


Sigs and Non-Sigs: I enjoy having options!
