WTS: Beretta 92FS
« on: December 01, 2016, 08:50:02 PM »
Up for sale is my Beretta 92FS. 



Chambered in 9mm, it was made in Italy in 2010.

Pistol is in good condition, though there is one scratch on the slide, that happened since this picture: it has a diagonal surface scratch (in the finish, not to the metal) that goes through the P in Pietro.  Other than that, no issues of note.  This is Not one of those pistols with a trashed finish, such as you might see on GB for this price.  If requested, I can provide additional pictures of any specific angle.

I am looking for $425 for the pistol, and $25 to ship - $450, my dealer to yours.  Included in that price is the pistol, one factory 15rd magazine, and the original case and manual.  If the buyer is in a restricted state, I do have a 10 rounder that could be substituted.

I also have an Adams Texas IWB holster that while I am not trying to sell, I could be convinced to if the buyer had plans to carry this pistol.  If one wishes to carry it, I have found that this pistol quite likes 115 grain pills. ;)


I am open to trades, specifically S&W revolvers.  K-frames are preferred, but others are possible.  If the trade is uneven, cash can be added either way.  Let me know what you have.


Thanks for looking!

    That's going to go very quickly, I think I paid that much for my little airweight.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    I could easily trade my pre-model 10 with the 4 inch pencil barrel towards this, but the finish is not the best on it, so there would have to be some cash from my end as well.

    That being said, I had such a damned tough time with my FFL dealer in Waco, that I'm not sure I'll ever be able to trade another gun again based on the experience from that debacle alone. I am just thankful that Grant was as patient was he was!

    Last I checked, they are about 600 around here. It is very tempting  :hmm.

    I'm really surprised no one has gotten it yet.

    IIRC, he doesn't reload  :shrug.


    If I had a competent FFL dealer nearby...  :banghead.

    I know it wouldn't just sit in my safe, cos I've really been trying to get into more DA/SA semi autos and I prefer 9mm.

    I have a hypothetical question, as someone who has never owned a Beretta before, how hard is it to install a decocker instead of the safety on one of these? Both price and time wise?

    From what I gather, it sounds non-trivial, but not necessarily very difficult.

    I am so filled with lust right now.  I am was looking until my gun money disappeared.  Just for reference, around here, AK, used 92 FS start at $550 beat to hell, and very nice around $700.  New is around $900.  I had given up on getting a Beretta due to the high prices around here.

    Honestly, for anyone I know and trust around here, I could put this on a payment plan.  Not answering anyone specifically, but in general.

    Just wet my beak on the price a bit, and put down a deposit to show you are serious.  I would clean it and put it away in its case until you are paid up.

    I am not hurting for cash, so I don't mind.

    It is not a dibs call. Feel free to buy it out from under me if you got cash in hand. Cause I am having to rely on Kaso's good grace to allow me to pay for it a bit later. As at this moment I am broke from buying Christmas.  :(
