I believe it was last Sept that Beretta fulfilled the last contract for 92's.Could it just be the web site has not been update since sig won the new contract?
Maybe a oversight maybe not? Misinformation? Or a parts contestant like others have said.
Web sight out of date or overlook I think more likely
I think the 92x performance is where they got the lever configuration perfect.I’m unsure if they will continue to issue new ones, but the above comment about a parts contract makes sense. Or it could be a smaller units that re upped to get new ones for a deployment purpose but haven’t gotten approval/ units for the new Sig systems.
The M9s I saw in the Navy were pretty rough. Overused and poorly maintained. The recoil springs were so weak you could easily watch the slide chamber rounds. On a couple occasions I saw locking block failures shut down pistols entirely. I can see how that might turn people off but I kept telling myself nothing would survive use and neglect indefinitely.
Couple months back I got to shoot a new 92 FS a friend bought and it was soooo sweet. Accurate, smooth, crisp. Been fighting the urge to buy one ever since! I don’t think you will regret it. Only thing I will add is that I think you will want the “G” model decocker only. I think the design is perfected without the lever being a safety. Doesn’t make much sense the more you use one.
Did you work for the Border Patrol?I was originally issued a 1911A1 in the Army in 1991. A couple years later was issued a Beretta. I hope that I don't insult anyone with my opinion, but I much preferred the Beretta over the admittedly worn-out 1911A1.
After the Army I was issued a Beretta 96 Brigadier with the Federal agency I got hired by. I also really liked the Brigadier, but it was very hard to conceal (so was happy when we got H&K USP Compact. 40s). The DAO trigger on the Brigadier was very long, but fairly light and very smooth. I found both the 9mm and .40 caliber Berettas to be very reliable and pleasingly accurate. I might buy one for nostalgia, but let's face it, the guns are big for the caliber.
