Default Beretta hitting hard

I have a the AF 92 beretta using average loads but it feels like the slide maxing out on the recoil cycle causing more recoil that what seems like it should . I also have the PT 92 and its not half as bad . Both guns are in like new condition and have had less than 100rnds thru them . Is it possible the springs have gotten weak in it ? Maybe a match grade spring pack would help ? Im not seeing any damage and I know the guns are very close but not the exact same , anyone have / or had this problem or am I just imagining things ? Maybe the previous owner fired some hot rounds and over compressed the spring ? Btw I use alot of blazer ammo in all my 9mm

After only a few hundred rounds the spring shouldn't have gotten bad BUT go ahead and change it out (very little cost) and see what happens.

It's possible somebody put in a light spring to shoot target loads.


You can buy a dual rate recoil rod/spring assembly and it prevents the slide from hitting the frame at all. It also softens felt recoil a small amount.

It sounds to me that your recoil spring is too weak. Replace it and that should solve the problem.

Kinda what I was thinking , it wants to hit 90 degrees up when the slide come all the way back , but even on my little pt111 I can keep it on target better than the Beretta . I think I saw a pack from '' wolf ? '' IN the midway book for a decent price
