Beretta 92A1




What do you think about this video?

tyreeztt: Great review. I bought one of these new last year and love it. I've owned a LOT of 92 series and this is one of my favorites. One thing I did notice you mention was the issue with slapping the mag and it dropping the slide. I always do a very hard double tap on my factory 17 round mags and have never ever had it drop on it's own. I had never heard of that happening either. Might wanna have that checked out.

FailerVision: Thanks! @dogwood912

TemporarilyFunny: Dude, those grips make the 92A1 even sexier than she already was...very nice looking!

matzpimp: i just got mine today, it was a pain to find in ohio, it seems nice, i want to get the wood grips too.

FailerVision: @choongsam The grips are Beretta-made wood grips. they're available for most semi-auto models. Any modern 92-series grip will fit the A1 subseries

betatalk357: Depending on the ammo, cheap bullets run dirty through the gun. Most of the time, it's not a problem. But if you're unloading a few thousand rounds of garbage in a top notch gun, you're asking for trouble. Lastly, target ranges forbid steel cased bullets due to Failure to Fire or Failure to Eject problems with cheap bullets. Insurance companies don't want to insure ranges that allow people to shoot steel bullets rather than brass.

Braug Pyke: so the beretta 92fs fires .40 cal. rounds aswell?..wat about the 96A1? can the 96A1 fire 9mm rounds aswell as .40 cal?

RODNEY MOORMAN: Just purchased one last month. Ran 50 rounds through it with no problem at all. It comes everywhere possible with me. Its my new black italian friend. And I absolutely adore it.

Archie: @mononetbob Different model. Looks the same though

Chris Beymer: What is the difference between the 92a1 and the 96a1?

Rikudo_Sennin: One of 3 best pistols ever, well in my opinion. :)

Benjamin Messenger: its funny to me that beretta copied pretty much a ton a features fom the pt92 and said he look we has new stuff arent we cool. about freaking time beretta i alwaysed like the pt92 for the decoker and the rail as well as he higher capacity mags (you have been able to get 20rnd mags for the pt92 forever now mecgar and all) but i was always sad because i wanted beretta quality and accuracy. also 40s&w woot

FailerVision: @matzpimp They're worth it. They make the weapon a tiny bit wider, which for me makes the grip more comfortable. I'm also looking into a skeleton hammer and some stuff for the rail.

jarias37013: Hi I just purchase a 92a1 from cabelas and it jams from the first time I use it, I only had it for 3 weeks. any suggestions? Thanks

FailerVision: @DerMoerder1 They feel pretty much the same.

Alva Goldbook: @FailerVision I like the Px4, but I have an issue with polymer framed guns. I'm sure they're great and reliable, but I can't see handing down a Glock to my grandkids. Plus, for me, there's just something great about holding a cold metal frame. I have a Stoeger Cougar, and it's a great gun, and I carry it concealed easily enough, but I need something with a rail for home defense.

Alva Goldbook: I'm thinking of buying one of these. I can't tell from the vid, but is the frame polymer or metal?

betatalk357: With the 92fs, you can convert it to .22 caliber. The 92a1 CAN NOT be converted to .22. However, a .22 conversion kit costs between $200 to $400- a new .22 pistol costs the same, so buy the .22 if you want to shoot .22s. 92fs has a lot of replacement parts, accessories especially made for the 92fs available now. The 92a1 doesn't have many accessories/ cheap spare parts available right now, but it IS a new gun on the market. Given enough time, it'll have what you want for the 92a1.

Samuel Lee: what kind of grips do you have? i love the look and need to get one for mine. also do all 92 grips fit on the 92a1?

ChazUBCS: One of the best pistols I've fired

red sanders: for not having done a review before you did a fine job, well done.

tarkomatic: mine is arriving tomorrow - bought the wood medallion grips as well :)

vnlk65n: Raven Concealment makes a kydex holster for the 92A1 IIRC.

TheBigyoc: very cool hand grips!

sheldog94: Thx a lot betatalk357, really good information:)

betatalk357: Now all he needs is gold screws, gold slide release, etc. and add a few accessories. It'll look classy, cool, yet badass.

FailerVision: @cyborg578 Caliber. The 96A1 is chambered in .40S&W

pugweasel: Nice video. I'm a big fan of Beretta myself.

FailerVision: @Target008 You need to check up on a little bit of your info.

pblum22987: What type of holster did you buy and you say didn't fit

betatalk357: Also, don't waste your time buying steel case 9mm, as it will damage the ejector over time trying to eject cheap steel casings rather than the recommended brass casings. Beretta may also cancel your lifetime warranty if they find out you've been abusing your gun and you may have to junk it after only a few thousand rounds. Plus, in a shootout or shooting competition, you don't need your gun failing to eject at a time you need it most.

broncole: Thank you for this, I am about to make my first purchase of a hand gun and have had my Eye's on the Beretta 92a1. I've watched a few other videos and this one was Nice and easy to understand.

FailerVision: @Target008 No, they definitely haven't Taurus added the deroosterer in the 90's. Beretta had built in a deroosterer in the mid 70's. Beretta has offered high-capacity magazines for years. Taurus only added rails and 17-round mags recently because Glock was outselling Taurus like wildfire. The only thing Taurus ever "innovated" was a squared trigger guard, which Beretta has since gotten rid of. Its a licensed copy, a cheap imitation and nothing more.

TheROOKvoice: do the wood grips make the grip wider or are they the same size as the polymer?

betatalk357: Speaking of ammo, 9mm is a good defense caliber and good for target shooting. But 9mm ammo can be pricey- about $200.00 per 1,000 rounds. The gun is good for 30,000 to 35,000 rounds,so do the math. .22 ammo for $200.00 will get you about 6,000 rounds, but they are single use only. 9mm brass can be reloaded; Beretta recommends NOT using reloads in their guns.

FailerVision: First off, did you break in the magazines? you need to load them and let them sit for a few weeks to break in the springs. thats any new semiautomatic. secondly, if you're using a really crappy brand of ammo you MIGHT have a snowballs chance in hell of jamming. id stick with Federal or Winchester @jarias37013

mononetbob: According to Beretta, this gun fires .40 cal as well... Does it not?

Midcal9: Mec Gar makes 18 round mags for it. Great vid btw.

FailerVision: @G0neTomorrow True it isn't that hard, but most people out there would frankly just screw it up. Therefore, I'm not about to get on YouTube and say "DERP ITS SO EASY YOU CAN DO IT YERSELF!", because I know someone's going to hear that, try it, screw it up, and then bitch and moan.

MrDannees: What is the difference between the 92A1 vs M9A1 besides the rail styles? And why does Beretta use 2 different accessory rails on them?

FailerVision: @pblum22987 It was a Blackhawk Serpa model. They started putting warnings on the Blackhawk 92-fitting models that they won't fit the A1. Naturally, after I bought one.

G0neTomorrow: Can change the mag release easily, save money and skip the gunsmith.

goatkiller68: does this gun accept nato rounds, or +p or +p+ ?

betatalk357: if you do go for a 92a1, I highly recommend changing the stupid plastic slide guide rod for a metal one BEFORE USING. Over time, the plastic may warp, the slide may shift, and grind the slide rails, making for a wobbly slide/ bouncy slide action. As for the 92fs, don't quote me on it, but I don't think it has an internal recoil buffer.

RODNEY MOORMAN: Yeah dude the barrel expands to accommodate the 40 cal. rounds. Berretta is at the cutting edge of firearms technology.

betatalk357: The 92a1 has a rounded trigger guard; the 92fs has a bezeled trigger guard. This allows cops to brace the trigger guard of the gun to their wrist to balance the weapon while holding a flashlight. The rounded trigger guard on the 92a1 doesn't provide as much support for that purpose, but if carefully used, can be wrist supported. The accessory rail allows for the mounting of a flashlight, making holding the pistol with 1 hand redundant. Just mount a flashlight and hold with both hands.

FailerVision: @alvagoldbook2 Metal, although some internal parts have been switched to polymer. If you're looking for a poly-frame Beretta, I suggest the Px4.

thecranberry89: I, (in MY opinion) would only agree with the first part of your statement..please don't take this personally, i am merely stating my opinion. I agree, DO let the mags break in..just like most all mags..and..that goes for the weapon too..every gun has a break in period. However (my rebuttal): This weapon should not be picky with any big name ammo. i.e. Remington, Winchester, Federal, Blazer and even Tula! My 92a1 will eat up any brand and they all should shoot fine so long as you keep em' clean.

betatalk357: Depends on your taste. With the 92fs, it does not have accessory rail, so all accessories like laser sight and flashlight, will have to be mounted to pistol grip or trigger guard, which may reduce space in trigger guard for trigger finger. The 92fs also doesn't have recoil buffers and 17 round magazines. The 92fs has 15 rounds, but if you want 20 round mags, you'll have to buy them separately. On Beretta's website, they suggest a price tag of $20.00 between models.

whitefx2: Beretta 92a1 best pistol ever
