Time-tested design meets useful features in the 92
The Beretta 92 is a classic for a reason. Its time-tested design and proven track record of success in the field for police officers and military members make it one of the most popular 9mm handguns on the market today, for professional and personal use alike.
We have put the latest edition of Beretta’s iconic 92 9mm in the hands of our expert team of former military and police officers and created this in-depth review based on their feedback. If you’re considering a Beretta 92, you’ll want to check out this information before buying.
Our facilities house some of the most popular shooting and tactical training ranges in Arizona, and we have a team of instructors who are NRA-certified and many of whom have extensive real world experience in law enforcement and/or the military.
When we aren’t reviewing guns like the Beretta 92, we’re providing some of the best gun safety and tactical training in the area.
We tested the latest edition of the 92, the 92FS 9mm pistol. If you aren’t familiar with the 92’s credentials, it has won several long-term contracts with the US military and Beretta claims it’s the “world’s most reliable pistol.”
Our team loved the consistency of this gun from the first shot we took with it to the thousandth. Hitting the ten range from 50 yards seems effortless with the 92 and compared to other guns in its class, it’s got a heavy and confident feel with a little more kick than its contemporaries.
You can feel the quality in the 92 from the first time you shoot it. It’s a comfortable sidearm and from the first time you rack the slide, it’s evident you’re dealing with a high-quality weapon.
A unique element of the 92 which is beneficial for left-handed shooters or those with a non-conventional grip is the reversible magazine, which allows the shooter to use either hand for magazine changes. Our left-handed team members appreciated the ambidextrous safety de-cocker, too.
If you’re going to make an investment like a Beretta 92, it’s imperative to keep the gun clean and well taken care of, and the ability to deconstruct and clean the gun and without the use of tools was a big plus for our team as well.
While it’s not obvious from extensive shooting right out of the box, one thing which can’t be ignored is the track record of 92s holding up for decades. Ask any military member or police officer who has used a 92 before and you’re likely to get the same feedback we got from our team members who have been using them for years; they’re dependable and shoot just as well after 20 years as they did the first time they were fired.
If you’re looking for the top 9mm handgun on the market, the 92 is a fantastic choice for law enforcement officers or personal protection.
We would be happy to answer any questions you have about the 92, or schedule some range time for you to come test one out. For any firearm needs, give us a call or stop by one of our five locations today.
