    I bought a Baretta 92 fs 1 year ago and it misfires once or twice on every outing. Meaning ,after the shot goes off, shell casing ejects , bullet gets hung up, before it gets into the chamber. The gun is oiled. Can someone give me some good advice as to what causes this and how to fix this problem? Thankyou!

    WELCOME manallwork, glad to have you aboard! [​IMG]

    The issue with your Baretta is not a misfire, it's a FTF (Failure To Feed).

    Not being a big Baretta fan and not familiar with the gun I would say wait a few minutes and some one will be along to give you the low-down.

    Go to FTF fixes would be low power ammo, limp wristing, weak recoil spring or your mag needs a tune up.

    Good luck.

    Try another magazine. It sounds as though the release angle of your current magazine is off slightly. Any gunsmith can remedy this but it takes some time to work it out. Beretta's don't generally have this problem but the good news is, 92's are very common and replacement magazines are readilly available.

    I had the same problem. I shot the gun without any problems and then all of a sudden it stopped feeding correctly. The problem for me was the guide rod was not set properly.

    I had FTF problems in my Taurus 92 when I first got it. A weak grip and limp-wristing was to blame.


    Practice a strong proper grip, and your trouble will be solved.

    My gun now has a 17,000 round count, no problems since I improved my grip.
