Default Beretta 92 factory .22 conversion kit = awesome

Just got this from a board member. I've got some other .22s and .22 conversions for other guns, and they've all had issues. But not this one.
Ran perfect out of the box with three of the four brands of ammo I tried, so I'm pretty giddy about that. The Remington Golden's had several clicks with no bangs. After pulling the trigger on it again, in double action, about half of them went off, so it is the ammo. The other three brands ran great. Havn't fired it enough to say it is 100%, but so far so good.......and when I'm done, the 9mm slide goes right back on.
Love it !

You just peeked my interest in getting one of these for my 92fs.

The Beretta Forum guys are all over the new offer from Beretta USA.
Members there are lining up to pre-order, pre-pay, and buy them for $369 and hoping for a discount.

Used, these kits go for 400-600 depending on condition and number of mags in the package.

They never stay "for sale" for very long.

I just bought a kit and 2 extra mags for a total of $490 after taxes and shipping. That's $5 more than what I paid for my used 92fs + DROS. It's an outrages amount considering I can buy another .22 pistol with it but there is substitute for being able to practice with the same trigger pull.

The kit was out of stock with in hours after I ordered my kit and won't be available again until march. My order has already shipped and I can't wait to shoot it.

PS: No point in buying a GSG 1911 now.

With the price of that conversion and the mags I just decided to buy a browning buckmark camper instead. But I would love one for my Beretta though.

Yea, the price is very high even without the mags. I can shoot a lot of 9mm with $400.

I know I can get a good .22 pistol for the money I spent but there really isn't anything like practicing on the same trigger pull and such.

Also, those kits should fetch for a good price if I ever sell it to recover some cost.

for that price wouldnt getting the new ruger sr22 pistol that just came out be better? i mean yeah you practice with your own gun but for the price you can just get a entire pistol, i mean you can have a friend shoot it while you shoot your beretta


i pondered getting the sig p226 22lr conversion but for over 350$ plus shipping i just said i'll just buy a entire new pistol that i can bring anyone to range and have them shoot that while i use my other pistols

i picked up my ruger sr22 for 308 shipped!

I've been eyeing the SR22 for a while, too but I'm waiting to see if there will be different models like the Walther P22. Maybe something like a 5 inch barrel or bi-tone model. I also considered owning another pistol but I think for now one would do just fine.

Another reason to get a CZ. The Kadet kit is around for $250, used, and works on every size gun based on the CZ75.

Good info. I'll be getting a .40 handgun down the road and I believe the 75b comes in .40

I got the conversion kit today and putting it on is easy as taking cake from a kid. I will be out shooting in both the .22 and 9mm tomorrow.

I found one NIB for $325.00 from a wholesaler in Texas right before Christmas. Had it delivered and gave it to my wife, for my kids to give me as a present. For the first time in years I actually looked forward to Christmas morning!

The quality is none other than any other Italian made Beretta and it functioned flawlessly (almost) with 3 or 4 different brands of ammo. Accuracy was surprising too. The only real misfires were a few FTF with older ammo that had some grunge on it, but after about 500 rounds it seemed to gobble up anything with no failures.

One thing, don't loose the plastic mag loader or you will be hard pressed to load the magazines.

If you can find one get it, since it will always be worth what you paid for it (or more) should you ever want to sell it. Try saying that about any other current .22lr pistol out here.

Now I have the 92FS .9mm, with a 96D .40 cal slide kit, and now the .22lr kit too, for three guns in one.

Oh so happy!

I took it to the range for another 200 rounds with Winchester bulk .22 and the gun just hates it. There was one mag where I had 3 connective failures. Overall I probably had about 15 fails. It's probably because of the ammo. I've not shot a gun that actually likes that ammo.

Once I converted back to 9mm it shot just fine though.

The new Rock Island Armory looks cool but not sure if I want to pay over $500 for a .22LR pistol ....but anyhow, this pistol is not on the CA Roster anyway!

Mine loves the federal bulk box, and the CCIs.
The only failure was a failure to fire on the federal, but the round chambered and ejected fine. It happens infrequent enough on the federals, but again still chambers and extracts, that I don't bother trying to diagnose, just consider it a malfunction drill, rack it and keep shooting.
The Winchesters and Remingtons though, don't work too good. I'm not using those anymore in it.

I think I might have found the problem. One the the magazines is having a big of an issue with the spring and that's probably why it's giving me all the trouble. Since I stop shooting with that magazine I've gotten zero failures in about 100 rounds with the CCI Blazer.

I'm actually looking to sell my kit. For one I need to fund for a centefire rifle and for two I just decided that it's better to have a dedicated .22.
