    Thanks Mas. I remember when IPD fielded 92G’s, but I left town on active duty not long afterwards, and never knew of the D conversion.

    One drawback of the V1 is that if you ride the control lever with your firing hand thumb, like how some of us learned to shoot 1911's, it's possible to get a dead trigger caused by the lever...

    This. I staked the lock on mine anyway, just to be sure, but there's no pattern of failure like the damn S&W lock.

    At this point, I'd be much more excited by low ammo prices.


    Short of that, I'm at least somewhat interested in the new WC Beretta, and the upcoming LTT version, but it's hard to get really...

    I’ve had a similar 92F for a couple of decades now, and it’s one of my favorites. Mine is a 1986 vintage gun that I bought used in the early 90’s. I didn’t start keeping decent logs until years...

    Let us know if it actually has screw-in chokes. I'm fairly certain that model didn't in the past, and I am thinking it might be an error on Mossberg's website.

  18. Beretta 92 FS Compact (and general Beretta love lately)

    WC offers a compact version of the guide rod. I'd assume they'd let you exchange it. (Like Robinson, I didn't feel the need to change out the solid OEM guide rod on my newer (2015) Compact. My older...
