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.

    • A person exercising their rights, breaking no law should not have a gun pointed at him. Care to explain how that is a strawman? The IRS is different?  How so?  A man following the law (the deputy) oh I can't be here with my gear?  okay i'll leave.  Rentacop procedes to point gun at a non threat.  And you think this is completely different?  Technically the rentacop was fired, arrested and charged.  Technically the deputy wasn't. So in your opinion anyone perceiving a threat is justified in taking lethal action against the perceived threat.   So when I see a bunch of guys in vests and black BDUs and cattying sidearms, i would be justified in pointing a gun at them?  Every Tuesday at lunch.  Funny how i am able to resist.  Man i dont even call the cops. Champion? No.  Support a person exercising their constituional protected rights absolutely. So your stance is  "I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it. Unless I disagree or it might cause someone distress" My stance stops at the period.  
    • Strawman, again, really? Cant simplify it any further for you. I think you get the points made but it breaks your argument so here we go, strawman again.    You brought up the IRS guy. How about an actual response to my comments. Here they are again: But if you are referencing the guy that drew down on the local deputy at the IRS, guess what, he was actually correct that local LE does not have the authority to be armed on federal property. As I understand it that is the actual law. So now what? His judgement was poor but technically correct? Following your logic I would expect you to actually be siding with the security guard because the LAW says the deputy cannot be armed on the premises and the guard was following the law. BUT reasonable judgement would dictate no real threat existed. This is the exact flip side of wallmart. The deputy technically broke the law but was clearly not a threat. The "auditor" was within the law but one could easily articulate he looked like a threat given the totality of the circumstances and the timing of the Texas Wallmart shooting.  
    • Well isn't that great as long as you agree with the point of view all is wonderful.  If you don't agree its okay to shoot them.
