    I had a Storm carbine that I regret selling that used the same mags, mags that are hell for stout. I ran over one with a Jeep and it still worked.
    Presume the A1 gets you the light rail on the dust shield?
    Also astounded at the 'plastic' parts that you can replace; my older one came with steel trigger and mag release.
    What are they putting in the mil spec guns?
    For a double stack pistol, the M9 gets good grades for not being too bulky in the grip.
    Enjoy your pistol.
    One caveat; the first one I had had an oversize bore and was putting the bullets thru' the target sideways.
    The current one has no such issues.

    I think you will enjoy it. I have the Inox version now, and I have considered getting a second one in black.

    M9 commercial comes in a cardboard box while the 92 comes in plastic. An mp unit i worked with in iraq deployed with brand new m9's and they all had the plastic guide rods and other parts. No worries but i still prefer the metal guide rod. Congrats OP on an outstanding gun. Trust me you will not be dissapointed.

    Mine literally came in a cheesy cardboard box. Something that one would expect to be shipped to the government. And yes, it has plastic recoil spring rod. I'm going to have to get me a steel rod.

    I did them all myself this morning. Follow the videos on the beretta92fs.com site. He shows how to completely tear it down and put it together by particular part or component.

    I had to use a roll pin punch to get out the mainspring/lanyard bushing pin and a dental pick from my AR cleaning kit when putting the trigger together to move the trigger spring around.

    Nothing difficult at all. Just watch the vids a couple times. Each video is about a minute.

    Not to be negative but are you sure that is an M9? The M9's come in a cardboard box that say M9 all over it and the tag that comes attached to it is an American flag not Beretta. Maybe Beretta changed there latest versions but that is how they came when I bought mine.

    Have a 92FS and like it a lot. Only problem is that I can't figure out what that little rubber cup thing is.....

    Do you mean the blue plastic cup with the Beretta logo? I believe it's to support the flimsy case so the contents won't get crushed.

    I stand corrected sir. I recently saw a picture of an M-9 next to its cardboard box with the Beretta tag on it. Guess Beretta changed some things. All in all enjoy it because it's a great gun. First time at the range I was hitting bullseyes.

    The tag in my picture does have the Flag on the opposite side.
