    Yep, they call to you. My local dealer had their 92FS models on sale three times last month and finally on the last day I went in and asked if they would do the same deal on the M9 that was sitting there. After some debate they gave in and I walked out with the M9.

    Too big, too heavy, too long but it's a Beretta and they are sexy as hell. Shoots like a champ.

    Enjoy it and thanks for your service!

    Gotta love the M9s. Just picked one up, and after a quick trip to the range, was very, very HAPPY.

    Very nice, I love the 92 series as well. Wish I still had my M9, for now I just have a 92A1. Love it too but sometimes miss the clean looks of your pistol. :) Warm that badboy up!

    I purchased an M9 back several years ago. I had the Idea of practicing with it to get better and qualify better with my 92 at work. it took a little while, and I did get better but I still don't like the platform. I don't like the two stage trigger.
    Yes a new one is pretty, and the ones we had at work were well maintained.
    They were no longer pretty, but they did what they were designed to do very well. Because of the safety features designed into the pistol we had very few
    ND's Personally I would have preferred to carry a Glock, But I am not sure the people involved would have been able to carry a Glock without having more ND's than we had.

    Well several years back I picked up a Beretta 96, and played with it for a while, and traded it off. The other day I picked up a 92SF for a good price. It appeared to be in very good condition.
    At the range I put it through it's paces, and it did very good, till I went to put it on safe with a round in place. it went to safe but the hammer did not de-cock. The firing pin was disconnected, but the hammer stayed cocked.
    I have been advised by two different people that 92s built in the last 5-10 years had a problem with the de-cocker breaking off. One of them told me that he had the part, and would give it to me if I wanted it.
    I'm starting to think that I'll just buy the part, but not put it in till I get ready to sell or trade it. It does not bother me as far as a safety issue. It will not fire because the firing pin is dis-connected. I can just pull the trigger, or let the hammer down by hand. That way if I replace the part it might break before I'm ready to sell it. It should last a few years, and the new one might be better.

    I came late to the Beretta Party. I now have several 92FS models and recently purchased an M9. I have been a SIG fanboi for a long time but I am thinking that I like the M9 over the 226. The M9 is a hefty firearm and I find the weight comforting. It is good for an affair but my first love is the Glock 17.

    Yes, you have a broken hammer release lever. It is an issue that has been reported quite a few times with the Beretta 92FS/M9. You can find a bunch of information if you do a google search for "Beretta 92FS broken hammer release lever" and there are some videos on youtube.

    The hammer release lever is a $6 part at CDNN. It is not that hard to replace. If you have not detail stripped the 92FS go to youtube and find "childofjuly"'s channel. He has some excellent videos on assembly and disassembly of the 92FS.
