Beretta 92FS

I've had the "itch" for a while, and I sold my Springfield 1911, so a Beretta 92FS was in order. Found the exact one I wanted at a Sportsman's Warehouse here in town. Its a made in USA model with two 15rd mags.



I now know what the "Beretta Cups" are for!!!! A pic with its baby brother the Tomcat:



Anyone here changed the plastic guide rod to steel? What about the recoil or hammer springs? Any input would be apreciated!

Even though I know everyone likes steel, everything I've heard indicates the plastic guide rods are better.

Nice pickup!

Got the Italian 92FS, changed out the plastic guide rod for stainless and put on new grips.
Love the gun, you've done well.
Enjoy.

I did the same, I know they said the plastic one is superior but I find some false comfort in the steel guide rod. Its been 100% with it too.

Enjoy your new shooter! Super accurate guns.

I've seen differing banter on the Beretta forum about the steel vs. Plastic guide rods. I guess I'll just shoot it for now and save $20 and only replace it if I get a failure of some sort.

Mate, for me the change was purely aesthetic.
Love the stainless, didn't like the black plastic guide rod sticking out.
There is nothing wrong with the plastic, your military has it that way for the "sandbox".

The Beretta 92FS is a great pistol, so good job. One of the few times I went away from Ruger. As a former Army officer I just had to have our official sidearm. The 92FS is accurate, reliable, and good looking as heck. I have a 92FS and an M9A1 and both are a lot of fun to shoot. Easy to break down and clean, too.

The 92FS is a fine shooting pistol. I have put a couple of thousand rounds through mine without a single problem. It's a very dependable weapon and I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Got the 92 also. have recomended to alot of friends and they all agree it is a great shooter. Have replaced plastic guide rod, over sized mag release and Rosewood grips. Have lower weight hammer spring makes a little difference on double pull weight so don't know if it's worth it. Looks two tone in pix but is all the nickel color. ( WHAT IS THE BLUE CUP FOR)

I've heard the blue cups are to keep the plastic case from getting crushed. It does make a good shot glass.

This is probably the real reason, but if you look closely in my second picture, the blue cup is proping up the 92 for the pic.

I changed out the rear sight of my 92 FS Inox with an adjustable one, in the process of changing the recoil spring and guide, and waiting for my new trigger spring that is more reliable then the factory one. Great handgun!

If you want quality custom grips for that pistol, check with Max4073 on the Beretta Forum. Quality work and they look great. Well, he is also my son too-
