Default E-Chang's Beretta 92FS





Beretta 92fs
- Made in Italy
- Simonich Gunner Grips 92fs (Coyote Tan)
- Wolff Steel Guide Rod
- Wolff Trigger Conversion (reduced power)
- Beretta 96D Recoil Spring

Picked this beauty up in '07 from a calgunner. Got it for $550 new condition with only ~500 rounds through it, d spring, steel guide rod, 2 magazines, manufacturer leather grips, an uncle mike's holster, and a complete 9mm cleaning kit. Its been a great shooter, and I always use it as a "trainer" gun when I introduce new shooters.

Despite the 92fs being a very easy gun to shoot, I've always been bothered by the trigger. It feels so stubborn to me. I picked up a Wolff trigger spring from Midway for $20 and that dramatically lightened the DA trigger pull. But the trigger reset takes FOREVER. The SA trigger pull did lighten up. Up I was hoping for something that could compete against my grayguns Sig. I plan on replacing the trigger spring with the extra power to improve the trigger reset. It'll probably make the DA a little heavier, but I barely shoot DA anyway.

As for the grips, I was using the hogue finger grooved grips. I like the way they felt, but it was too fat for me. I have small hands so I prefer thinner profile grips. I tried the plastic OEM grips, but I like an aggressive texture on my grips. Did some online research and found out that Simonich Knives, the people behind the 1911 Strider/Gunner grips, make a grip for the Beretta 92. Found a set at MattDTactical.com for $75. Worth every penny. They are made of G10 and the fit is perfect If you own a 92, and you like aggressive style grips, I'd recommend you pick one up as soon as possible. When I was first looking for them I talked to Christine from Simonich. She said they are limited in supply, and she doesn't think that they're going to make any more. The only places I know that sell them is MattDtactical or directly from Simonich.

Thanks. I'm actually going to replace those grip screws. The screws installed right now were the ones that came with the leather grips, which is a bit thicker; so the screws themselves are a little too long. I have to keep them a tad loose because if I tighten them the whole way they prevent me from inserting/ejecting my magazine.

The grips are made of G10, a type of resin soaked fiberglass. It's got a strong hard feel to it, but not really plastic. A lot of knife handles and 1911 grips are made of it.

Nice, 626! I actually don't live in Arcadia anymore, I moved to Bradbury. I go to a variety of ranges. 90% of the time I go with a group of shooting buddies to Burro Canyon for their private ranges. Sometimes I'll go to Angeles, if I'm shooting public ranges. La Puente firing line, if I just want a quick session. And LA Gun Club if I'm shopping for a new gun, they have a mind blowing amount of rentals.
