I have two older Beretta 92s. One is a 1997 92fs, the other is an 85 92sb compact. Both shoot great and are reliable, so no complaints there. But, with both of them I can move the saftey/ decocking lever to the position shown in the below picture and it will stay there and the gun will not fire. It's just as if it was in safe. The lever is moved far enough where it disengages the trigger bar from the sear. Do all Berettas do this, even new ones? If anyone with a beretta could check and see if there's does this too I'd appreciate it. I have a stoegar cougar that has the same type of decocker/saftey, but it is under enough spring presure that it is either going to be up in the fire position or down in the safe postion. It snaps into the fire postion and when you try to move it down the spring pressure will move it back to fire position if released unless it gets clicked all the way down into the saftey "notch" that the detent plunger goes into. And I had a 3rd gen s&w auto that, from what I remember, couldn't be moved to this position in the picture either becasue there was enough spring pressure holding it up in the fire position. I asked this very same question in two seperate posts in the Beretta forum, and while I got over 100 views no one aswered my posts. I don't know if they thought I was a Beretta basher or was dumb becasue I didn't know that all Beretta 92s had a saftey/ decocker that cold be moved into a midway postion between fire and safe. appreciate any responses.
