    The other day I made the trade for a used Beretta 92fs. I had one years ago and traded it, and suddenly got the hankering for another one.

    One thing Inhad forgotten was the loooong, hard trigger pull. So I ordered the "G" conversion (I also forgot that I don't like the safety selector/location of selector on this model), and the reduced power hammer spring (13 lbs). Anyone had any reliability with the reduced weight hammer spring?

    The D spring is a must have, I’ve never had an issue with any of the ones I’ve used.

    From my Beretta factory armorer's course years ago they discussed the D spring. It is enough to pop the primer except the hardest of primers. We are talking crap ammo basically. The military just wanted them to pop everything. The D models did have a nice trigger pull. I wouldn't worry about it with anything you would find on the Walmart ammo counter.

    A 1911 mainspring will work too but I would only do that if you can't find a ligit D spring.

    The D spring is the same hammer spring in the Double Action Only "D" models. Noticeably lighter and 100% reliable.

    The "G" conversion is a very awesome safety/decocker conversion to decocker only. With this when you decock the lever springs back to the fire position, like the "G" models. You have plenty of safety factor with the double action trigger and you never have to worry about a dead trigger if the safety gets engaged.

    My M9 has both installed and I highly recommend both for any 92 pistol.

    Awesome, thanks guys. Yeah the D spring is what I went with, just didn't recall it's name when I made the post.

    The G conversion is also well worth it. The right side spring is a bit fiddly, but it’s a big improvement for not much money.

    Got both installed in a couple Beretta's. Never had any issues with either the D Spring or the kit. In fact, Wilson and LTT sell even lower spring rates for the hammer spring if you are so inclined. The D spring has always done it for me, but if someone would want...

    The D spring is a must do. Makes a huge difference.

    Another vote in favor of the D spring. I like the concept of the G conversion but I haven't done it. I'll likely get around to it someday.

    Langdon tactical has a trigger job in a bag I highly recommend and I’m running an 11 lb trigger spring and not yet failed to light a primer. The D spring is 16 lb I think. The kit makes a huge improvement.

    Got all the parts installed today and shot 150 rounds through it. Vast improvement all the way around, money well spent.

    Nah, not yet. I'll get something basic for it for range use eventually, I won't be carrying it.
