Holy frijoles those 17 rounders are about twice as expensive as the 15s. No thanks
On Beretta's site, they're only 95 cents more than the factory 15s. They haven't been out that long, so I doubt the prices will stay high forever.

yeah but they're incredibly overpriced at Beretta's site, I'll get some 15s from CDNN.

Moth,

You should consider installing a D spring and a skeletonized hammer. It would look cooler and smoothen out the trigger a wee-bit. Also, it won't massacre your wallet (i.e. $30 bucks?)

I'm not sure a lighter hammer and "weaker" spring together would be a good idea. I installed the hammer on mine, and it seems like it improved the trigger pull by itself.

That was just for demonstration purposes. So I wouldn't have to actually pinch my hand in the slide to take a picture.

I find the overhanded manipulation to be a lot easier on emergency reloads (slide locked back) as i can transition more seamlessly from the mag insertion to manipulating the slide. Using thumb + index finger means i have to push out to the left, then put my support hand back on the grip, then pull the gun out and push out again to put my front sight on target.

And yeah, there's a 13-shot "compact" and there's the Type M compact which is a single-stack 8-shot.

I'm going to get the improved recoil springs (20 lbs). The recoil is already negligible but why not:

The D spring is the hammer spring from a D-series (DAO) gun which dramatically lightens the double-action pull and also lightens the single action pull. I think the double action pull on a normal Beretta is about 15 pounds, but with a D spring it's more like 8 pounds.

I suppose I should just get a Glock 17 rather than a single stack 8 shot 9mm I would think.

I'll look into that, the initial pull is pretty heavy.

A 17 isn't what I would call CCW "friendly." The weight is good, but it's a fairly large handgun.

Replyin in the Beretta thread

I used to hate Beretta handguns, for the most part. Especially 92/96's. Looooooooong triggers and slide mounted safeties drove me crazy. But eventually they wore me down with their slick actions and smooth, sexy trigger pulls. I really do wish that they were shorter though. This thread is total torture. It has proven to me that the best Berettas are the Berettas we can't have in Canada. Those 84's are gorgeous, and I love Tomcats with their cute little flip up barrels.

Yes. There should be a DIY linked on the first page.

I really don't recommend this, but I have known a few people who went as far as to shave off a coil or two from the standard factory D spring to get an even better trigger. Frankly, the D spring installation fixes that horridly long DA and I personally left mine as it is. Anyone with a 92 series needs to strongly consider a factory D spring in their 'retta. Install is easy and requires a screwdriver/allen key + 10 minutes.

The hammer doesn't do poo poo but adds to an aesthetical appeal.

They are single-stacks, too bad Beretta never made a double-stack 86 for my own amusement.

Bottom gun is an AL 2 built in 1974. It is (from what I can tell) an A302 re-branded and imported by Garcia for the American market.
I found this gun in a pawn shop and liked it so much I went and purchased the top gun: A Beretta 3901. I then felt bad that I had two Beretta autoloaders and my son had none, so I gave him the 3901 (it stays in my safe, so I get to pretend it's still mine).
the gun in the middle is this:


The newest addition to my small Beretta collection, a model 84F. I had handled one at the local range, and loved the way it fit my hand, so I picked this one up. The trigger is nice compared to my Arcus, it is so crisp. It is a little beat up, but still a handsome gun.

Bare with me I'm stupid,

I've been wanting a 92FS or an M9 for as long as I could remember but could never quite justify the expense. After a little research it seems that the 92G is virtually the same besides the lack of safety and the de-cocker. Am I correct in this assumption or is it much more than that?

92G is decocker-only, but otherwise identical to the FS. Basically, you have a safe way to lower the hammer without pulling the trigger, but it's in the same place as a 92FS' safety/decocker is.

Edit: I thought your post meant "the 92G has neither a safety nor a decocker"

Yeah, it's a Beretta 92 that is decocker-only, no manual safety, still DA/SA, though the gun doesn't automatically decock on first round chambering like the 92FS, so you get an SA pull on the first shot. At least that's what I heard from HappyCapybaraFamily, who has shot the 92FS and has a 92G now.

A 92FS only decocks when you chamber a round if you chamber a round with the safety on.
