The stainless steel barrel is slightly shorter 4.7” (119 mm) for compactness.
The pistol’s grip is grooved to enhance control during firing, the beveled magazine well facilitates rapid reloading, front and rear slide serrations provide a sure grip for fast, easy racking of the slide, the skelotonized hammer reduces lock time and the rubber magazine pad protects the magazine if it is dropped.
Beretta Elite II models are available only in the G configuration (when the lever is released after having been activated to lower the hammer, it automatically returns to the ready-to-fire position).

 Beretta CX4 Storm Tactical Lasers & Lights Insight M-Series
Beretta CX4 Storm controls are very similar to those found on our popular 92FS pistols, so most shooters will be immediately familiar with the operation of this firearm.
Finally, on the Beretta CX4 Storm one side rail included, the front post sight is adjustable for windage and elevation, while the rear ghost ring sight has long and short-range apertures, both sights are protected by rugged "ears" and may be folded down when optics are used.
Beretta's use of cutting-edge materials also keeps weight down to just 53/4 lbs., making the Beretta Cx4 a pleasure to carry, whether in the field or on duty.

 8000F
This is because the spring on the Cougar fits right over the lock's shaft, while on the 92FS the spring is offset to the side and resides in corresponding recesses in both the frame and the button itself.
Beretta advertised heavily that this type of action can reduce felt recoil because a portion of the recoil energy is channeled into the rotation of the barrel.
That Beretta included this modification on the Cougar is very curious to me. For those who aren't familiar with the story, this channel is part of the safety mod that changed the 92F to the 92FS.

I've owned several mod 92's and one 92FS type M that was a beautiful little pistol and I wish I had it back.
Beretta is one of the "safest" guns out there, especially for a carry, but quality is now a big issue.

 Semi-automatic pistols for left-handers - THR   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
I believe that the Beretta 92FS Compact "L" models (9mm) have ambi safety/decockers and the magazine release is easily reversable (instructions are in the operators manual).
The only difference between the L and M is that the L has a 13 round double stack magazine and the M has an 8 round single stack magazine.
The Beretta 92/96's have ambi safeties and the mag release can be easily switched or you could learn how to use your index finger.

 Glock or Beretta - 1911Forum
As for problems I encountered with Beretta, the SS 92 FS, has a broken firing pin, broke in 3 peices, but when it was fixed it shot fine, as did all other Beretta models I have owned.
Also, the Beretta's feed is "in line" which means from the top round in the mag to the chamber is almost a straight line.
I think a big advantage of the Beretta over the Glock is the luxury of being able to stick the gun down the front of your waistband, without a holster, for concealed carry.

 Brution or Blued - Beretta Forum
I need some info,just what excatly is the difference between the Brution finish like on the Vertec,and what they call the Blued finish on a 92FS or M9,it looks the same to me when I hold my Vertec next to a 92 or M9.
I believe the Vertec barrel is Bruniton covered stainless while the M9 and 92FS have either a matte blue or parkarized barrel.
P.S.--The answer to the question, as in earlier posts is that there is no difference, they all have the same bruniton finish on the slide and all have the anodized aluminum frame.

I have conducted what I think is a rather through search for a set of wood grips for my Beretta 92FS, Compact L, Type M. I thought I had found a supplier (Hogue) but upon further discussion (with the emphasis on Type M) I came up empty.
About 2002 I called Beretta and asked if they had plain wood grips like on their 92EL.
I called customer service and they told be they were for a Compact L. When I told them I had a Compact L Type M (like I did when I ordered them) they said for me to return them and they would send me my money back.

The Gold dot had the highest and gave the Beretta quite a thump this was surprising because the Beretta is such a soft-shooter.
