Let's see those Beretta's

Recommended Posts

Ok, I know there was a thread a while ago on this but figured I'd start a new one.  Let's see 'em!

I have the 92G Langdon Tactical, M9A3 FDE, Wilson Combat 92G, Wilson Combat Compact, 92FS Inox with Silver controls, another 92FS Inox with black controls, A 92FS with OD Green frame, a 92FS in Sniper Gray,  and a 8040 Cougar NRA edition.  Not shown is a 92S Surplus Italian police model.

Aww shucks, I'm going to keep up the Beretta submissions.

92FS Compact Inox.  I went overboard with the INOX upgrades and replaced every available piece with an INOX replacement from Italy. I then added on 92SB Compact grips with very custom modification to the inner surface so they fit over the larger 92FS hammer pin. I have a stainless magazine floor plate for the total look but it didn't make it out for this photo.

Beautiful guns but they weren't made in the Czech Republic where the best 9mm is made, Ray.   I would not have sold my 92FS if it had been one of the thinner grip models, though.

Here's mine, sporting the spiffy wood grips that were a Christmas present from my wife a couple of years ago.

I replaced the main spring with a lighter one and added a dot of fluorescent yellow paint to the front sight. It's one of my favorite pistols.

Any Beretta fans need to watch this:   Might have to find another Beretta...

Wow!  And your thumb on the back of the hammer when reholstering!  I would love both a  PX4 and an M9 setup this way.    I'm sort of pretending I am posting a picture of mine, here.

Close up view of my ODGreen frame version 92FS.  I added the Beretta grips and skeletonized hammer (and the G spring).  I like the look of the grips but they are a bit "fat" for my hands.  What I really need to do is get a set of the Wilson Combat thin grips for it.

No, not on a pistol

Thanks

Just so I have some clarification which I should have just asked first. The Beretta M9A3 is legal in NJ? I know its not on the banned list but it has one of those "evil" features (threaded barrel).

May be stating the obvious, but you need the version that comes with 10-round mags. Other than that you're gtg.

Purty gun but please explain those sights.  Did you replace the rear?

The front is fixed to the slide, so during blasting and paint the white dot is obviously removed. I used florescent orange to replace it for better contrast.

The rear sight is original and was removed for paint, I'm thinking about replacing it, so I haven't done anything with it.

    • Hard to tell from the photo, but you may be seeing the remains of an old shok-buff (Shok Buff).   Wilson and others make them, they aren't always blue as the one in the link, and they are life limited.  You can replace them inexpensively, and they offer some protection against frame battering, or you can leave them out, as some folks think they add an unnecessary point of failure.  You could get a replacement guide rod of standard length from Brownells, Midway, or a bunch of other suppliers.  The full length rods can be a pain in the neck, but you do see them on high-end guns like your Wilson because they slightly improve accuracy and reliability.  The standard length rods are also cheap, and are a drop-in replacement.  You could pick one up and see if you can tell the difference.
    • I have inherited a Wilson colt 1911 mk iv series 80 recently and after I had taken apart the pistol to clean I have noticed there were pieces of plastic that was broken off I believe where it used to sits behind the spring of the guide rod. After I had finished cleaning the pistol I am currently stuck at getting the bushing/guide rod down the barrel because the bushing is hollowed out which I have no problem pushing down with a flat tip screw driver but the guide rod would not go down enough for me to swing the piece to lock it in place. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if I need to replace the plastic piece that was broken off and also if someone could point me the right direction as to maybe replacing the full size guide rod to a shorter version? of guide rod (and where I could possibly order one?) maybe that will solve my problem. TIA   Edited: I have attached pictures  78D80CA2-0E03-4E86-BD24-16999026A5AA.heic 26647C1F-C7ED-49C7-9947-4B5F90095029.heic
    • I concur with @JohnnyB .  This is a total non-issue as you're maintaining both as residences.  Buy 5 more and you'll get the same answer   Both residences are where you'll be residing, so BOTH are EXEMPT LOCATIONS.   Rosey
    • Both houses are in the same town, about 15 minutes between them.  No plans on renting them at any time - will be given to my kids.  Will probably split time between the 2 so no moving anything out.
    • @lhrocker So now we "pull teeth" to get the full story: Are both houses in the same town being used as YOUR residence OR is your intention to rent the old house to someone and transfer all your worldly possessions, including your firearms, to the "new house"?  If you're moving out of the old house, and changing your driver's license, you'll need to get a new Yellow Card. Even if you rent it out, it's still property YOU OWN, so you're allowed to patrol it armed.  Hair-splitting is a specialty of mine, so... You can own many houses (or vacant lots) in NJ's 21 counties, and carry or store firearms at any of them, provided they are secured and away from prying hands...OR transport any number of firearms TO them at any time day or night.  I've written about this several times in the past.   Rosey CNJFO VP https://www.cnjfo.com/join-us
