Just got back from the range this weekend with the new setup. Forgot to take pictures but Its an improvement for sure! With the factory barrel, I couldn't keep groupings on paper past 7 yards. I know it wasn't me because even with the rental 92FS, I was able to keep a decent size grouping at 25yds. With the new setup, I'm able to get about 6in groups. While not great by most standards, at least I now know its all me from here on thats screwing up :D

1- EFK ported barrel.
2- Sprinco recoil buffer/guide rod.
3- Wolff #18 hammer spring.
4- And finally, Beretta wood grips. " Which is being replaced with different wooden grips, the picture from Beretta's website was misleading, the grips had more of a walnut look to it :mad: "

Only thing missing now is a skeletonized hammer. Which brings me to my question. Is there an easy way of removing the bluing " I'm assuming of course " from the trigger and skeletonized hammer? I really like the stainless look, " can you tell? :D " and was wondering once the black was removed, what I should do to protect the pieces from rust? Would automotive clear coat work?

Nice looking 92!

I am not really a two-tone fan but something about your 92 screams “classic.”

I’ll be looking forward to the final product. What range were you shooting at?

Remove the trigger and hammer and leave the in a bowl of vinegar over night. Get a scotbrite pad and scrub. This will remove the bluing, as for the composition of the underlying metal not sure if will be stainless like your barrel.
