A while back I was looking into a trigger job on my 92fs . I checked out a local gun smith and they gave me a price of a $85 . At the time i did not think that was bad ,but i thought I would hold out for a bit. I searched on Calguns a bit and checked out youtube.There has been a few posts about this here so I ordered the parts last Sunday night ,and they came today. I learned ,all I needed to do was buy ,and change out to the Beretta D main spring . while i was at it I changed the hammer to the Elite version . that was a nice touch for under $20 not sure if it helps any ,but it look nice :) . For under $30 with shipping ,and 3 minutes of my time I now have a nice double action trigger on my 92 that i just changed out today. I hope to try it out Friday.

Thanks for the help Calguns ,and u Beretta guys for posting about the D spring. I think im in love with my 92fs again:tt1:

The D spring is awesome, so is the Beretta 92FS.

+1 The "D" spring is the best upgrade for a Beretta 92. I'm in the same boat as your are after giving my 92FS a few small upgrades.
Here's the thread on my 92FS. I think i even pissed off a Sig fan, they rated the thread 1 star LOL.

(psst - just 3 coils off of your stock trigger spring = D spring). Or get a few from Dave Olhasso (google him))

I've done trigger jobs on all my 92's and the D spring (or equiv above) make more difference than anything.

If you WANT to, it's really easy to do a trigger job on a Beretta. I got the info off the Beretta forum.

The extended mag release CAN cause problems. Some are really big, and as a lefty, got in my way. I dig the stock one..

I have heard great things about just swapping for the D spring. Helps single and double action as well as makes the break crisper.

But does the elite hammer do anything other than look good? Any functional reason to switch it?

Some claim a faster lock time since the hammer is lighter. I'm not sure how true that claim is, i just like the way it looks.
After all, isn't that the only thing that matters? LOL

So would this D-Spring be the same for my 96FS? Where do you order the spring from? (Not Beretta I hope, they took forever to get me parts last time I ordered from them.)

Same, same. The 'D' name came from 92D / 96D guns.
You can
1. Cut 3 coils (I think this is a temporary fix - buy a spring)
2. Dave Olhasso (on the web somewhere - $5, but he also does trigger jobs and is a pro shooter).
3. Brownells has the 92D spring part #38. http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/pid=0/sid=882/schematicsdetail/92-96-FS-D-M-22-Practice-Kit http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/sid=58423/pid=27930/Product/UD99001-HAMMER-SPRING-D-VERSION
4. Brignoli in Italy - they charge a TON for shipping, but if you need rare parts THEY HAVE THEM. Their shop is next to the Beretta Mothership (Factory in Italy). They are on the web, check them out for fun.. (Click on English at top of page).
5. Sometimes CDNN has parts....

Wolf makes a 16# spring for the 92FS which is equivalent to the 92D spring.

If you want to try various weights:

If you find the primer strikes are light, you may want to go heavier than 16#, but that weight has worked for my gun.

Just my $.02 on trigger jobs. Most people look for lightened trigger pull but 'over travel' is the biggest killer on offhand accuracy. Beretta 92/96 triggers usually have somewhere around 1/16" of over travel. Your offhand accuracy will improve if over-travel is minimized.

Over-travel is the distance where the trigger is when the hammer is released to where the trigger actually stops on the frame. This is where you 'yank' the shot if your finger isn't squeezing 100% straight back.

My fix is a little dab of bedding compound or JB Weld on the back of trigger. It helps tremendously and no permanent mod to the gun. You can put layers of tape behind the trigger till the over-travel is removed before you do the compound thing.
