    So i picked this up from Keith's last week and I am simply in love with it. I've always wanted one and now I do.

    I put 50 rounds through it and am impressed with how smooth and accurate it is. Purchased a Hogue grip for it and it feels amazing even in my large-ish hands. It's the American made version. Any
    recommendations from the Beretta pros out there, if i should change anything on it?

    Congratulations and just know - acquiring firearms can be addicting. LOL They seem to easily multiply if you get bitten by the bug.

    Thank you kindly, you have great taste lol. I absolutely love the comp virtually no muzzle rise. There's a few utube videos on them. Search SGS Beretta. Also come say high at the Beretta forums!

    I have a Beretta 92S that was made just before the US adopted it as a sidearm. It's had a few thousand rounds thru it, with all kinds of ammo, and it still shoots like a sewing machine or sharp pair of scissors. Flawless....

    I have never had a failure to feed, a jam, failure to eject, or any hickups, ever, and have been shooting this pistol for like 30 years. Still lovin' it except the double wide stack is a little hard on my small hands. That would be my only complaint is that the handle is a little wide for me.

    Congrats on yer new purchase!

    I have the 96FS, same as yours only in .40 S&W. All Stainless including the controls. I did once have a 92FS and sold it and wish now I didn't. The firearm is under-rated by many or simply dismissed. I see some for sale with no takers, and they don't know what they are missing. They are great.

    The only thing I ungraded on both of mine was to replace the guide rod with a solid stainless.

    Have fun.

    Hang on to your 92 FS it is a great pistol. The 96 is a different beast.

    Simonsez, what are your thoughts on the 96, I just took one in, based on my 92 experience. I thought they were pretty much the same gun. What did I do?

    It is most definately a different beast. It shoots the .40 S&W and with my Mecgar AFC magazines, I've got 13 +1 at the ready.

    I have a 92FS centurion and it is the bees knees. Absolutely love it. You can do no wrong with a 92, as far as I'm concerned. Just picked up a CX4 Storm that takes 92 mags, which I have a boatload of. Highly recommended as well, complements the pistol like lamb and tuna fish... Good purchase!

    Looking good on the Beretta's. Funny how some guns really get a LOVE/HATE following. Many Beretta's have the smoothest slide action. The slide mounted safety/decocker does take some learning for me.
    May God bless us all,
