    I just ordered the Italian version of the 92FS today after researching them for several days and talking to a couple of other guys at work that own them. One owns the M9 and the other owns an older 92FS. Mine will be the 92FS in "blue", or Burniton finish. I also ordered (3) additional Italian 92F mags for a total of (5).

    So, for those that own or did own one, how do you like it ? Upsides and downsides ? Go for it.

    There's been some discussion regarding "polymer coated controls" on the newer 92's. Trigger, safety, etc. Can anyone elaborate on this ?

    The Slide Stop, Safety Lever, and the Trigger are coated with a polymer-like substance. Its held up very well thus far.

    To clarify, the above is a Beretta 90-Two in .40 Cal. Its a variation of the 92FS, and such. It uses the same exact parts as the 92FS and such. Only thing different is the frame and slide. Still uses 92 mags, or 96 in my case. I have seen 92FS in the store with the same polymer coated controls as which are on my 90-Two.

    Thanks guys. So, the controls aren't actually polymer but polymer coated, from what I gather.

    I'm confused did you order Italy made Beretta 92FS or a Beretta 90TWO?
    I'm asking you because the one in the pic is a 92TWO.
    Thank you.

    It's an awesome gun, you will be delighted with it. Why the Italian? The USA factory has been cranking out hundred of thousands of them, they have some serious experience in making them. This is a factory that was created expressely for that gun model if you think of it. I wouldn't have any problem with the American one.

    I tried to find some M9's but they are just not to be had right now. In addition, many folks speak highly of some really fine Italian craftsmanship that goes into that gun. The Italian was the original (appealing) although I prefer the straight dust cover of the M9 (non-railed) to the slightly slanted Italian. Closest I ever had to the Beretta 92 was the Taurus 92 back in the 80's. Believe it or not, that Taurus was a decent gun. Not excellent, but decent.

    Since I sold my Springfield Armory 1911A1 Loaded, I wanted to replace it with a very well made fighting handgun. I wanted something nice. No "plastic" guns. The Italian 92FS seemed to fit the bill.

    Behind you, watching you type.
    A Beretta 92 is on the list of handguns I still want to purchase someday.

    The 92FS/M9 is an excellent pistol. A very smooth operating machine. I would like to try a PX4 sometime and see if its worth pairing up with my older 92FS.
