im not a huge berreta fan my da pref lies in the sig220 my only complaint with the 220 is the huge muzzle flip due to its lightweight. as i empty the mag it gets more and more unbalanced. thats primarily the reason i gave 1911s a second go. shot a lot of m9 and m1911a1 in the army expert with both but it was always much more work to get expert with the m9 than the 1911.

never knew when the m9 frame would fail. i was never comfy carrying that pos 92f as my duty weapon. a steel frame one does sound interesting especially a blued no rail version.

personally i would be more interested in a complete gun as i dont currently own a 92 but i did like the ergonomics of my old taurus 99af that i seriously regret selling.

IMHO the Beretta 92/96 hey day has long since passed. There are big fans, but they are getting harder to find.

I agree the locking blocks are the weak link. The old Walther design (from the P-38) can be prone to stress fractures. I do not know what grade of steel/temper level would be necessry for replacement parts.

Okay my Beretta made aluminum frame weights ~.39 lbs. My steel frame weighs ~1.1 lbs.

So not quite the 2.5lbs I estimated...haha

What type of failures are y'all seeing with the locking block? Any one know what material it is made of?

Thanks for all the input!

That sounds WAY more reasonable as well as very advantageous in a competitive situation. If I had a 92FS/M9 and shot competetively....I'd be sending you a PM for info on purchasing a steel frame.

Im gonna make a few when I have some free machine time.

I looked up some data on the locking blocks also, super simple. Im gonna make some and heat treat them. Ill put a 1000+ rounds down range with one before I sell it.

What happens when a locking breaks while firing?

Not good things. according to this source:
Quote:
The M9 pistol program ran into trouble when in September of 1987 the slide of a civilian model Beretta 92SB pistol fractured at the junction where the locking block mates into the slide. The broken half of the slide flew back at the shooter (A member of the Navy Special Warfare Group) injuring him. (NSIAD-88-213) In January and February of 1988 respectively, 2 more military model M9 handguns exhibited the same problem, injuring 2 more shooters from the Navy Special Warfare Group.

All three shooters suffered facial lacerations. One suffered a broken tooth and the other two required stitches. (NSIAD-88-213)
The True Story of the Beretta M9 Pistol

That is about what i've read elsewhere. I'm thinking that could cause a wee flinch to develop.
