Default Just picked up my M9

I found a great deal on a Beretta M9 Commercial on impact guns for 548 shipped then I paid 40.00 for the DROS. I look forward to taking it out and giving it a torture test before I lighten the trigger and add some other goodies to it. Definitely a sweet firearm and figured anyone looking for one might be inclined to buy one at 548 shipped.

FYI here is the link, I hope this does not break any forum rules. I also picked up some Federal Match .22 LR ammo 24.99 a box for 325 rounds from another online vendor.

I want to put several hundred rounds through it to make sure no issues will arise before I upgrade it with some wilson combat parts. My dad did his M9 and the trigger pull on it is AMAZING. Plus I don't like the plastic trigger.

Nowadays . . mostly because of YouTube . . when someone says torture test I don't know what to expect . could be anything from 1000 rounds without cleaning to burying it in mud then tying it to the back of a pick-up truck as you drive down a dirt road

Congratulations! Looks great.

Good idea to shoot it first. But, you might as well order a D spring now, as it will make a big difference.

That's probably the only upgrade you really need. However, it didn't stop me from adding a bunch of other WC parts as well. Fluted guide rod, short reach trigger, grips, chrome silicon spring, etc. It's a disease, I tell you.

Very nice. My favorite version of the various 92's, plus no billboard warnings!

Congrats OP, the M9 is one of my favorite. I had two in the past and sold them cause I needed the money. I am having the itch to get one again.

And yes, I also had a good experience with Impact Guns. I bought my Mossberg 590A1 shotgun from them.

Default I'll buy those NDG factory Beretta parts you are replacing.

I know why the Army's Airborne Division has plenty of troops willing to jump out of perfectly good aircraft.

But futzing around with a perfectly good 92f...replacing Beretta Factory Installed parts with...billybob and his basement milling machine parts...

Before any test, clean it and lube with CLP or even better EEZOX. New Beretta's and most other guns come shipped with heavy lube. Congrats.

One of my next two pistols will definitely be a blued M9 to go with my Inox 92. Congrats OP

Snagged the same gun at turners at the same sale price a long, long while ago- congrats on the smokin' deal! Be sure to clean very well with CLP or similar, absolutely want to repeat the heavy lube out of the box. D Spring is a great cheap trigger upgrade. Note that this has both the snowman dot and the normal 3 dot sights, but the rear dots aren't filled in- but they can be if preferred without too much effort.

Default Nice pistol

Very nice pistol you have there. I'm a recent Beretta convert myself and they are really nice pistols. Makes me want to buy more and more. I think I want at least one of each model and caliber.

I see where a few posters have recommended the D spring, but I bought a 16lbs spring for my 92G-SD and it is totally awesome. I did a few other upgrades myself, and I'm sure your Dad did a similar job on the one you mentioned. http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s....php?t=1154353
