New Beretta

I just bought a new Beretta 92a1 yesterday. I cant wait to try it out. Ive wanted a 9 mil for a while now.
Unfortunately I have to wait until Wednesday morning to pick it up. The powers that be figure that by Wednesday I won't be angry any more and Illinois society will be safe

Don't discount it because it's not a $$$ gun but I'm really happy with my S&W Sigma. Shoots well and I have a nice light attached underneath. Usually can find them on sale & sometimes mail in free mags.

Still a 24 hour waiting period on a long gun.

Hot damn do you love your Sigma, don't you?


FWIW, you may enjoy yours but they are one of the most infamous pistols out there today. No one else seems to like them. I had one back in 2003 and it was decent, functioned well enough and was reasonably accurate but given the TONS of modern and better pistols out there, why would you buy one now? A Glock/M&P/XD isn't much more money but vastly superior.

you have to wait 24 hours for a long gun? I just walked in and picked it up.

all the times this year.

yeah, I hate to say it but the sigma has a horrible rep and I'm looking at an XDm, M&P, PT92, beretta, CZ-75, or similar decent accurate functional sidearms.

^^^ i disagree

A nice video between he 92fs and the glock 19


go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

I was talking about the Sigma, I love the 92FS. Never shot one I didn't thoroughly enjoy.

Some how I missed this thread, congrats on the purchase. Dropping a "D" spring in it will reduce the trigger pull by about 2 lbs.

If he says anything other than flawless I'll be suprised.

Nice 92! One of the ones I'd like to get. Check out the truth about guns, they did a review about the a1 version with some hot wood grips. Get the grips, made it look a classic.

I enjoyed the hell out of my sigma - no probs, pointed great, lots of fun. Never noticed the mile-long trigger until I got my XD, lol.

Pretty sure there's a special place in hell for people who compare DAO trigger pulls..

So, Lone Star, now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

You probably know this, but thought I should clarify it.

The spring will reduce felt trigger pull force, not smooth function. For function issues a trigger job is needed.

The odds of a light strike go up drastically too. I'd rather have a heavier trigger and lose some accuracy in a defensive weapon like a pistol and have it function as close to 100% as possible.

When you decrease spring strength to lessen trigger pull/creep/whatever, you are decreasing the force that spring is capable of providing. Sometimes it can reach the point where on certain primers, the round will not go off. This is called a light primer strike or light strike.

Long story short, stick with full strength trigger springs in any weapon that may be used against someone. If it's a competition only gun, go with a professional trigger job or a drop in setup. Amateur gunsmithing generally doesn't work out well for most people.

I'm embarrassed to say Ive only put about 500 rounds through it. That said, it functioned perfectly. I need to get to the range.
