Photos are representative, but buyer will receive a pistol as good as, or better than, the ones in the photos. Here are some of the first 92 series Berettas with slide mounted safeties. They come to us from their career with the Carbinieri, the Military Police, in Beretta’s Home State of Brescia, Italy. Manufacturer was Fabbrica d'Armi Pietro Beretta, S.p.A. of Gardone. Type is traditional double and single action, hammer fired, locked breech semi automatic pistol. Construction is steel barrel, slide, and working parts fitted into a 7075 lightweight alloy frame. Barrel is 5 inch Government size, .580 outside diameter. Bore is six groove right hand rifling with 1:9.84 twist rate, no chrome. See pic for specs and dimensions. Chambering is 9mm Luger, 9mm Parabellum, 9x19, 9mm NATO, call it what you will, THE 9mm. The 92S was Not designed for +P ammunition, but it will feed anything from steel case Russian all the way up to Federal Premium hollowpoints. Magazine is original issue factory Beretta 15 rounder, 15 + 1 Fully loaded capacity. With its European style magazine release, the 92S will still accept most factory magazines because they still have the right side release cut. The two best aftermarket magazines, Mec-Gar and Act-Mag, must have a slot installed like the ones we’ve had made. Safety is slide mounted, serrated tab, right hand shooter, and serves as a decocker. Finish is polished surface blued steel with gloss black anodized alloy frame. Grips are factory black polymer with Beretta logo and checkered panels. Left side slide is importer stamped. Surface detractions are moderate to extensive, principally lateral wear and freckling on the slide, service wear to the grip frame fore and aft; contact scouring on the right grip panel, with edge wear more pronounced on the left side. We rate these pistols as Good, perhaps Very Good, 70 percent vicinity by our estimate. Photos, at any rate, ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. From their U Prefix, Z Suffix, 00500 to 43000 serial number range, these were manufactured between 1977 and 1981. The run was not date coded. Bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright and clean. From the moderate amount of slide contact whitening to the barrel surface, we estimate these Berettas have been fired fewer than 2500 times, no rounds at all for a 92. Replacement pricing on a new JS92F300M Beretta, the 92S’s descendant, is $699 on berettausa com. People even ask $400 or more for used PT92 Taurus copies.
