Default Beretta 92fs trade in

I am looking for a smaller pistol and decided on the nano. I am considering trading in my 92fs to get the nano. Anyone have any idea on what one might get as a trad in value for the 92fs. In was made in 2002. I bought it used so no idea how many rounds the previous owner put through it. Has a brand new recoil spring and rod. 2 10 round mags, manual and case. I would say in good condition. Depending on what they offer me I might just keep it and buy the nano.

You may want to sell it out right rather than a trade. A 92FS in good shape should go for $00- $500 in my opinion. Yours is a bit older but if it is in good shape I would try to sell it on line.

I dont care what shape a used gun is in you will never get what you want out of it unless someone REALLY wants it bad enough. I would say keep the FS and save your money to buy the Nano. There... problem solved and you get to have both!

My two cents? Keep the 92FS. I've never sold a gun that I didn't wish I had back later. I've learned to save and buy instead of sell and buy. I have a 92FS and suspect they will be iconic someday due to its use by the US military. Won't be as popular as the 1911, but a great looking and shooting pistol. It's a keeper.

The 90 series has been a proven performer. Why would you trade that for a new gun that by almost all accounts has some "teething problems"? Or have they fixed that in the last 6 months or so? Go to the Beretta Forum to read more about it.

I would also keeep the 92. I bought a 96 around the early 90'sl Sold it, wish I hadn't.

I don't think there's any reason to get rid of the 92FS. I think you should get both.

Me thinks pistols for CCW are getting too small. I carry a Ruger SR9C and I forget its back there. It packs a good punch with +P loads and has a simple safety. You'll see it on my face picture. A man and wife tapped me on the shoulder at the range a while back. They had just bought the Ruger LC9 and couldn't hit the target sheet - forget about the Bulls-eye. They saw my groups and were curious what I had. They were surprised with the SR9C and borrowed it. She fired five rounds -pointed at it and told her husband "This is what I wanted! It fits my hand and doesn't feel like I'm bending metal to fire it!" She was punching good groups immediately at 10 yards. I fired the LC9 and shook my head. No way. They were headed back to the gun store for an exchange. I just don't see the justification for the micro stuff - especially when you can't hit with it.

I edc a ruger lcp even smaller than a lc9. The purpose is for those like me who would rather have a larger gun but cant carry one for whatever reason, sure you could come up with a few if you tried but i womt list here, to pocket carry.

I neverhave to violate the first rule of self defense: have a gun, any gun.

When i can i carry a beretta m9 inox compact or a xdm 3.8 or a colt new agent. But thats not always possible.
