The standard 92FS is not a stainless slide.

What you're looking for is a rather rare 92 called the "Black INOX" by beretta, or "92FS Cajun" by beretta fans. Here is one I just recently found on gunbroker:

Hope that helps.

As mentioned, most "black" models have carbon steel slides, you can always just refinish a INOX slide black. SIG chooses to do all their slides in Stainless probably because it's cheaper to stick to just one type of steel?
