The Pico is still in production. Get one later. Get the Brigadier now. And carry it.

I'd heard 92/96 frames don't take well to .357 Sig, lots of early cracking. Confirm/deny?

Yep, got the grips in and installed. Seems to slim down the grip a hair? Though the gun fits my hand pretty okay already. Texture on the slants is pretty great.

True. I should clarify a little, I would prefer an 85, with an 84FS being a second choice, and a lot of the cheaper ones I'm seeing are 84BBs like Butch's. Though I might order one just to scratch the itch!

The F and FS adds a decocker to the safety. I was always under the impression this meant they couldnt be carried cocked and locked like the B and BB models, c/d?

I believe that is correct but I haven't handled a non-9mm Beretta before. I would prefer to carry DA/SA to Condition 1.

Butch Cassidy

The F "can" be carried cocked and locked. But it is easy to bump the safety with your thumb/whatever and wind up back to DA/SA plus having a safety on.

"Love us with money or we'll hate you with hammers!"

So I finally got around to taking a few pics of the 92 Brigadier I got from Summit a couple of months back. From the picture on Summit I was expecting the heavy finish wear, but the reality was a bit more... extreme.





It's been pretty roughly handled, obviously, but it's mechanically in great shape after a good cleaning and oiling.

The big surprise was the bonus custom engraving!



"LA PULGA"



"VILLASENOR"

It shoots great, I already put Wolff's D-spring equivalent in it. It's also nice to finally have a 92 to share mags with my CX4.

I was going to say that gun was an excellent candidate for a refinish until I got to the last two photos. That owns.

Here's a question: since resistance from the hammer and by extension the hammer spring is in part responsible for slowing rearward travel of the slide during the firing cycle, does installing a lighter D hammer spring increase wear on the locking block and frame? Would it be possible to counteract this with a heavier recoil spring?

Butch Cassidy
Jul 28, 2010



The D spring will not reduce the service life of the locking blocks. Beretta didn't care when producing 96D models, users reported no problems compared to FS, and and difference is only on paper.

9x19mm models would care even less.

Mad Dragon

Beretta knows people want to install the lighter D hammer spring, so they have a kit for it.

I'm sure Beretta knew what they were doing when they chambered the 92 in .40 S&W, I'd just been reading SFG's posts on slide velocity and I was wondering if the effect on cycle speed one of those things that would be considered when re-springing a gun.

In terms of long term damage, not really.

In terms of edge cases causing potential feeding issues, sometimes, but that's more the case going with crazy light recoil springs.

I scored an M9A1. I traded an 84F and a Franchi 48AL shotgun for it. Not exactly a screaming deal, but I got a gun I wanted in exchange for two which mostly took up room in the safe. I really liked the 84, but it hardly ever made the cut when deciding which guns would go on a trip to the range.
When I compared the M9A1 to the 92, I was surprised at the weight difference - the M9 is HEAVY The rail adds quite a bit of weight.
It's about time to gather all the Berettas and take a group photo. There has been a bit of churn in the collection.

Yup. But pretty bittersweet. It is in my safe because the very good friend I gave it to moved abroad indefinitely and asked me to store it for the duration.
