For what most people want to jerk you around for (price-wise) on a used 92FS,

you'll probably be happier with a NIB 92A1.

The 92A1 comes with 2 extra 17round mags, and has an integral 1913

accessory rail, which I've found acts minimally as a counterweight against

recoil, even without anything attached. Have fun shooting!

The 92A1 would be a great weapon too....but I have a feeling I might be able to talk my friend into selling me his 92F for a really good deal. He owes me, and he is not thrilled with the gun, preferring his .357 Magnum revolver over any semi-auto. It may work out for the both of us.

If you can get a good deal, and you like shooting the 92FS, go for it.

Many 9mms may arguably be as good, but few are better.

speaking of the 92A1, what are the difference between the 92fs and the 92A1 besides the rail? Also what about the 96A1?

92A1 = 9mm--------------96A1=40cal S&W

With both, general 92FS design changes (besides the universal

MIL-STD-1913 accessory mount rail under the barrel):

1) A remove-able front sight

2) An internal recoil buffer

3) A rounded trigger guard

4) 3(three)-17 round magazines(two spares with your new purchase)

is the recoil buffer supposed to help with the famous slide cracking?

Slide issues were addressed many years ago and the modifications necessary to eliminate it were what lead to the FS version. It is not an issue anymore.

Let me know as soon as you get a "famous cracked slide" with a current

92FS.

AFAIK, it was the ammo which was causing this problem to begin with.

The recoil buffer on the 92A1 is just a recoil buffer.

It has nothing to do with a problem which was resolved years ago,

on an older model.

Is the recoil buffer an added part that can be purchased and installed/retrofitted to the standard angled dustcover 92FS or is it a design change in the 92A1 frame? I ask because I have a 96G upper for my 92FS and heard that the recoil buffer was a later addition to the designs to assist with reducing recoil damage from the larger .40 round.

My friend is visiting this weekend, and he brought his, and we may have time to shoot today but don't know yet. But I got it in my hand and boy did it feel comfortable. Just the right size for me, it seemed. Or am I just hoping it will be the right one because of that stupid movie??

Now I'm getting into a position to actually start looking for a 9mm. What are some opinions on brands and models. I'm a novice, this will be for target shooting, and maybe, if the wife likes it better than her Thunder .380, she may carry it, but not necessarily.

So, target shooting, possible carry for wife...maybe a carry for me if she doesn't like it.

OK, fire away.

If you have always wanted it then go ahead get it. I wanted the exact same thing so I went ahead and got both a 92(9mm) and a 96(40cal). I love them both and they shoot great and are great pistols. Have fun!!!
