Default Beretta 92 trigger pull?

I have seen videos on youtube about reducing the trigger pull on a 92F. They do it by changing to a 92D Wolf spring. My question is, how do you reduce the trigger pull on the 92D DAO? Can I grind a coil or two off the length of the stock spring? I've looked online for the Wolf springs but only come up with the stock springs for the 92D.

You can get reduced weight 1911 mainsprings in the desired weight.....not sure what the 92D weight equivalent is. I know Ernest Langdon used to sell the D spring and also a lighter competition spring as well. The competition spring was not as forgiving as far as my reloads went. If a round had a primer not seated fully it would not fire off the first hit. Federal primers ran 100% though. The Federal primers are considered the softest cupped ones and a lot of competitors use them on guns with really lightened trigger jobs that are sensitive of light hammer strikes.

In addition to the spring game, you can lighten the pull with a DIY Trigger Job

I brought my 92FS out to play today. I haven't fired it in some time and when I started shooting I remembered why. I just hate the trigger pull. It has a D spring in it but no amount of relaxation, repetition, etc can prevent low and left. I shoot almost exclusively in SA. My 1911 is always dead on. I rented a Glock 22 and tried it tonight. I haven't been much of a Glock fan but I kept hitting the bull's eye over and over - no low and left. If it were simply a flinch I'd expect it with every pistol. I've read all over the web about 'having to learn' to shoot the 92FS accurately. It didn't take much time to 'learn' to shoot a Glock accurately (I never thought I'd post something like that). Is this a real platform issue?

Funny, I shot my stock 92FS today and hit dead center at 10 yards.

Very tight grouping. Same goes with my Kimber.

It is common for people to complain about the Beretta triggers. But they don't bother me. I think they are just fine. I can compensate and adjust to any gun I shoot (except for my S&W 442, I can't hit the broad side of a football stadium at point blank.)

Before blaming the gun, try going back to basics with your 92FS. Really slow down and start with how you grip the gun and slowly work all the way up to sighting, and then slowly squeeze the trigger until the gun surprises you when it goes off.

low and left....usually means your finger is contacting the trigger extended too far in, like near the first knuckle joint...try just the pad of your finger tip, it should clear up your trigger squeeze and put you dead on. For some reason berrettas accentuate that issue.

No it isn't a platform issue, it is a trigger control issue. You're trying to make the shot go off when the sights are on target, rather than letting it go off

What helped mine was the d spring and hundreds of dry fires. Now my trigger is super smooth
