Shipwreck are those laser grips I see on that beautiful beretta?

No, just plain rubber hogue grip panels (not the wrap arounds with the finger grooves - but just the grip panels). I like the way the rubber sticks to the hand. I would have laser grips, but they don't feel as good in the hand as the Hogues do.

I've got a 92A1, and if I had to take only one, it would probably be the one.

Eats WWB ammo, 750+ rounds, never a FTF or FTE.

Got it NIB, it comes with 2 extra(total 3) 17-round magazines, so

you can load a whole box of 50 rounds into the mags.

The grip has a great feel, and it CCWs OK,(I'm big) but the 92FS is a little

easier to CC without the rail. Very bright night sights, and the rail

and internal recoil buffer make it more accurate than the 92FS.

Arguably one of the best 9mms out there.

Yeah, shipwreck, I've got a Hogue wraparound with the finger grooves on the 92FS,

and it is a very solid feel, for a large hand.

All in all, you could do a lot worse, but not much better,

for the money.

I may have to go ahead and get one, and put some wraparound hogues on it. my biggest issue was that the grip was too fat and I would have to readjust my grip every 2-3 shots. If that doesn't work I could always sell it.

The wrap arounds make the grip even fatter. Just get the plain rubber hogue grip panels if size is an issue. I personally cannot use the wrap arounds. I have small hands. The wrap arounds make the grip too big for me.

Try it without the Hogues, first. The Beretta grips are very

respectable, I never changed them on my 92A1, because they

are very comfortable. The 92FS came used with them.

were the stock grips on my issued gun not the same as what they put on there now? Not trying to be smart ass, honest question- I last shot the M9 in 2006. I understand the wraparounds would make the grip fatter, but wouldn't the finger grooves offer more grip purchase in exchange? I may have to look at hogues return policy if I go this route, see if I can get both the panels and wraparounds and just return the one that doesn't work as well for me.

Right now I'm dreaming about so many different guns, there just really is no telling what my next purchase will be. I could end up just getting a little single shot .22 rifle, you never know.

Just try it and see if you like the original Beretta grips, first.

They are pretty good.

therewolf- that's what I'm saying, I've already shot one with the original Beretta grips, that's why I'm asking if they have changed them. I know the factory's don't work for me unless they have been changed.

Pretty much all of this is correct and the 92a1 is a great gun, but the 92a1 doesnt have the internal recoil buffer, I'm pretty sure only the 96a1 comes with that new addition. Beretta added it since the 96a1 ia a bigger caliber to get more life out of the weapon. I carry a 96a1 concealed everyday and it is slightly tricky to hide the outline. Sorry if this gets brought back up I just love my Beretta lol.
