    Hello,

    Anybody have one. I see them cheap around my parts and was playing with one and the trigger seemed way way long with a really long reset. Is it really that bad to shoot? Any input would be welcome. My buddy called and is selling one kinda on the cheap. I'm still thinking no but who knows. Thanks.

    My agency issued 92Ds..there are Beretta's; run all the time, shoot as well as you do, magazines abound, holsters/mag pouches in any flavor you like. It is like shooting a revolver with a magazine, trigger pull is spec'd at 12lbs.

    Like my Elite II, I like the 92D. I don't feel at a disadvantage with it.

    I have a 96D vertec. Yes, the trigger pull is long, and in the 12lb range, and yes the reset is long. They are well made guns, with accessories easily found as the above poster pointed out. My agency issued 96Ds for years with minimal issues, and I feel confident in the gun. Its not that bad to shoot, just like a revolver double action trigger.

    Deputy I knew had a 92D Centurion before they went to Glock 21s. I found the trigger to be very smooth, but I kept short-stroking it and pulled it again before it reset. User error.

    I got to work on one while in Beretta armorer's school. They have a reduced power mainspring from the factory so it is a little lighter than the FS model. I actually liked it. If my fingers were slightly longer I would probably have bought one at some point.

    Or you can get the best of both worlds, buy the FS and replace the spring with the D spring.

    The best double action trigger pull in semi I've tried. If you're looking for a magazine fed "revolver" you can't do better. Mine is ready to go at all times. I've ran my D Centurion through all kinds of loads, from target to +P+. Not a single malf.

    FS is not cutting for me due to a slide mounted safety. Besides, "D" model is still smoother than FS with a D sprind.
