I have always wanted a 92FS in 9mm to collect. Just happened to walk into River City Guns and saw this almost brand new pistol in the used case. I notified one of the Counter People that a pistol was labeled wrong as "USED" and he thought the same thing and had to double check. I ended up buying it for $490 while the brand new 92FS pistols were on sale for $610 on the other side of the store.

Thanks to Don Bing for always taking care of me. I promised a while back I would post these pictures, so here ya go...

Nice find at a nice price.

I like River City. There's one guy I prefer not to deal with, but it's a personal preference.

Nice! I had the 92fs on my "gun acquisition bucket list", but I just laid down a deposit on a M9A1 at Turner's as they're on sale, can't wait!

Yea I like the younger guy there. Some of the other guys have attitudes.

Nice find at a great price. The 92FS is still on my list of future purchases.

Very nice. Is that a Brigadier?

Yup - 92FS all-Inox USA Brigadier. I sold two guns to get cash to buy this exact model. So I figure - 3 to 4 months and I'll snag one - find one on GB less than 5 days later!! Easy come, easy go..

To OP: Congrats - you got a great buy!! :)

Blackberry pic...will try to take a better one.

Just picked these up in a package deal from a fellow CalGunner, who told me at transfer he had yet to fire either of them. The OP also checked into the thread post-sale, and said he had never fired the .25, with only a few rounds down the 92 (so one of these pistols is apparently new, with the other near 97-99%.

My first purchase in a few years, I knew it was the 92 Inox I wanted and my patience paid off...the matching Jetfire was simply the icing on the cake! Congrats to you, tbhracing, on finding your sought after 92.

Sweet. Gotta love the Berettas! I've got the US-made Inox FS and pick up my mint blued Italian M (single stack) this Sun. Can't wait to bring home my new baby!

Excellent. I like the 92 as it was the first pistol I ever loaded and fired.

You win hands down;)

Thanks HK45 GUY, BUT, CP562 has me trumped on both counts. I have a Jetfire, but it's blued and acts kinda weird... His 92 appears cleaner, just needs a better pic.. (but isn't a brig)

But I'm happy as heck!! THREE MORE DAYS!! arghghghg

And yeah, glad OP is onboard with our TC pics!! hahaha

Love the pictures. My only drawback is I dont want to fire the pistol as its in 100% condition and dont want to screw it up.

I know, I'm a pus.

You know this, but when and if you do shoot it - clean that factory goo out and make sure it's lubricated decently and things will work out great !!

BTW - If you get run over by a truck tomorrow, you don't want your last thoughts to be 'Dang, I wish I'd have tried out my new gun!!' :)

Damn.. Nice buy!!.. I hope to find one like that soon, and be able to afford, a $490 is insane.. I think i need to go check some stores. I need to buy one and soon!..
I have always wanted a 92FS in 9mm to collect. Just happened to walk into River City Guns and saw this almost brand new pistol in the used case. I notified one of the Counter People that a pistol was labeled wrong as "USED" and he thought the same thing and had to double check.

What is the little round, blue beretta-logo-ed thing that comes with it?

Here's mine, by the way. It was my first and only hand gun, never felt the need for another after shooting her.

Excellent weapon. It is in my top two pistols chambered for 9mm. I have a soft spot for it seeing as how I carried one in the military. Built like a tank and will last a lifetime.

Wow, it really is in great condition. Excellent score.

I believe its a cup used to hold small parts while doing a full disassembly of the weapon.

Here's mine. I have plenty of 9mm's but, I can't get myself to sell my beretta. Great gun for beginners.

It’s a little cup so we can continue to drink the Beretta Kool-aid.:D

I also use it to hold the smaller pieces during a detailed cleaning on my often used 92FS.

Nice catch. Here's my 1990 vintage 92FS. Definitely my most aesthetically pleasing pistol, and my most pleasant shooting 9.
