Beretta 92X

I absolutely hate it.

 

Because you're going to buy one?

I think the frame mounted safety alone will draw in some people that were on the fence. The steel frame will probably help with the balance of the brigadier slide.

whoa... This is the first 92 variant I WANT to get.

This gun looks squarely made for gun games.

Fiber optic sight.. check.  Frame mounted safety?  Check.

Extended takedown pin which is made for being used as a thumb rest? aha.

As long as it is around $750... will be a huge hit.

If the Walther Q5 Match is well over a grand AND the M9A3 is 800 clams you can expect this abortion to be 1200 pesos.

The Q5 SF Match is grossly overpriced for where it is, around $1400.  M9A3 is too at around $800....

Around $750 to $800 I would be all over it.   Considering a base M9 is now under $500 in many places.

I’ve said it at other times... decocker, I prefer slide mounted. Safety, frame mounted.

Glad to see Beretta put out the frame safety model again... but to be completely honest... absolutely zero interest in it. I actually have a lot more interest in the APX over that (in hopes it made it through the CBP trials). My SP-01 fits the bill well enough.

The only 9x model I may consider if they brought it back... the Type M (single stack). Wanted one for years, but didn’t want to get another handgun where I’m paying $100 per magazine. Do that, allow it to be compatible with the G conversion... and they can take my money.

APX?

Eh, don't know what the hoopla is all about.  It is not that good.  Or at least, from my impressions with it at Shot Show and a few stores.

I have not shot it, but dry firing it and really playing with it?  Eh, it's cheaper, but don't know if it is better in any way.

I would not mind getting one to play around with though... time to reach out to beretta.

Yep...

CBP put out pretty specific requirements for their new sidearm(s). Polymer... three sizes (can be chassis, but must have compatibility across sizes to an extent)... 9mm... optics ready.

Figuring Glock and SIG submitted. Beretta APX fits the bill, and the newer S&W M&P seemed close to meeting the specifications. Heard H&K and FN being mentioned... but not familiar with their lines.

I’ve heard enough good about it that I’m interested. Personally, I’d like to see it come in above the P320... if submitted (after losing the military contract, I’m sure Beretta is submitting to every contract that comes up). Even if it doesn’t win, CBP likely is authorizing one or two other pistols that passed... giving options for personally owned duty sidearms.

Guess I would like to just see Beretta back in the hat again.

This gun is 10-15 years late. It would have been a killer! Party's over Beretta, you came too late.

Although Beretta does things differently in regards to releasing guns and options, this one seems like it will sell.  Will I buy one?  No.

As a diehard 92 fan, there are things about it I like and others I don't.  The sights, rounded trigger guard and steel frame are interesting.  I'm less enamored by the vertec grip, and I'll need to get used to the frame safety and how that might affect the trigger.

Considering I just bought the LTT to add to the collection I'll wait until I can hold this one before I decide.

Personally I like the Vertec grip - fits my hand nicer.  

Looking at the design you most likely can get a standard size grip to go around it that is more like the standard 92 grip shape - my M9A3 comes with it.

Beretta will do well with these new 92 series pistols... The series itself is Loved and deserves it... Love them.

At some point they might want to play with other calibers as well... maybe a 45acp..

No!  I disagree.  That's like making a 1911 in 9mm.  Only idiots build and buy those abortions.

sure, loved... but pretty much everyone who wanted one bought one a long time ago.

45 ACP?  why?  You well know that this would be wasted money... it's all about the wunder-9 today... can't give away a 40 s&W, aka the Beretta 96.  Plus with the stresses on that open slide.

Is the 92X going to get some fan boys to buy one?  Sure... but at nearly 2.5x the cost of a new Beretta M9 or 92FS.... tough sell.

Now if they made a 92 in polymer... that would have people interested.

But its like the Sig P226... only so much innovation you can do to the platform.  Sig had the competitor version, the USPSA edition and that was largely a commercial failure.  And when Sig came out with the Legion 226... or the x5 version... there were no lines out the door to replace their old 226s.

Glock on the other hand... gets a much higher percentage of people upgrading their guns.

cant giveaway any 40.. regardless of the manufacture. 

A poly version would be as shit selling as the CZ SP01 poly...   The attraction to the 92 is the metal frame.

    • How about buy it or build it anyway and enjoy it?
    • When you post a question, you wait for an answer. Eleven minutes is not long to wait. A full day made you look like a troll.
    • Please don't mind the negative comments.  We are a group that are constantly under attack and any new poster is met with a level of suspicion.  Welcome to our board!  Stick around and get to know us better....You won't regret it!  Some FFL dealers responded to you that it is legal for your parents to gift you a gun without being able to take possession. The general consensus is it would be much easier for you to pick out a gun in California and have your parents pay for it or reimburse you.  Good luck and you have very nice parents!
    • Wow, I didn't expect this would start such a paranoid flame war. Just had a question and I figured this forum would be the best place to ask it on. Just to put some fears to rest, I am a legal gun owner in "Commiefornia" (we do exist). My parents simply wanted to get me a special gift as a surprise for my birthday later this year, but I wanted to make sure they wouldn't get themselves in trouble or anything. Thanks to everyone who offered some much needed legal advice. I'll let them know about getting me a gift card as an option instead if they don't want to deal with the hassle as well. Thanks for your time!
    • Lets go through the whole thing:   2C 39:1 w (5) A part or combination of parts designed or intended to convert a firearm into an assault firearm, or any combination of parts from which an assault firearm may be readily assembled if those parts are in the possession or under the control of the same person. "A part of combination of parts" First per TITLE 13. LAW AND PUBLIC SAFETY CHAPTER 54. FIREARMS AND WEAPONS you are in possession of 1) "Rifle" means any firearm designed to be fired from the shoulder and using the energy of the explosive in a fixed metallic cartridge to fire a single projectile through a rifled bore for each single pull of the trigger. 2) "Firearm or firearms" means any handgun, rifle, shotgun, machine gun, assault firearm, automatic or semi-automati crifle, or any gun, device or instrument in the nature of a weapon from which may be fired or ejected any solid projectile,ball, slug, pellet, missile or bullet, or any gas, vapor or other noxious thing, by means of a cartridge or shell or by the action of an explosive or the igniting of flammable or explosive substances. It shall also include, without limitation, any firearm which is in the nature of an air gun, spring gun or pistol or other weapon of a similar nature in which the propelling force is a spring, elastic band, carbon dioxide, compressed or other gas, or vapor, air or compressed air, or is ignited by compressed air, and ejecting a bullet or missile smaller than three-eighths of an inch in diameter, with sufficient force to injure a person   So right there we could stop. Because you aren't in possession of parts. Now in Title 13 they do not define "parts" or "readily assembled" --> That is up to the interpretation of intent and opinion letters. However they define "manufacturer" and they include a lot about parts in there:   "Manufacturer" means any person who receives or obtains raw materials or parts and processes them into firearms or finished parts of firearms, except a person who exclusively processes grips, stocks, and other nonmetal parts of firearms.The term does not include a person who repairs existing firearms or receives new and raw materials or parts solely for the repair of existing firearms.
