    Get a different handgun. Umc isn't the best, but their is worse out there. I used to have a beretta INOX and it shot umc fine, cause that's all I used to shoot. It is dirty ammo, but it has a stronger charge than Winchester plinking stuff. But if you wanna try a better ammo, try Speer lawman. It's clean and it has pop.

    Curious about what kind of jams you were getting, fail to feed, fail to eject, double feed? Had a 92 and can't remember it ever jamming. What type of umc ammo? Was it new or the remanufactured stuff.

    I've never seen umc jam, not in my beretta, Glock, colt or springfield.

    I used a different type of ammo and it worked fine, but I want to know what other ammo are reliable for the beretta

    I have 2 Berettas, and a INOX as well, and have never had a problem with Remington UMC 9mm ammo or any other caliber of UMC ammo, doing what you described. As stated, it is a little dirty though.

    Something's wrong. My Berreta will digest anything I put in it. It is one of the few guns I don't think has ever jammed on me ever.

    try PMC, magtech, sellier bellot, rws. all have shot well for me and not one problem. federal gives me a problem once in awhile say one in 200 rnds or so. so thats an option to. with federal my problem is normally FTF. it shoots but locks open and wont chamber a round. hit the slide release and its keeps going just fine.

    Is the pistol new or used? Never had a problem using the mentioned ammo.

    Sounds like a limp wrist malfunction. The lightweight alloy frame will do this if you are not holding firmly. If it is used, clean it very well and properly lube it.

    Make sure the ejector is not broken or damaged.

    Didn't want to bring up limp wristing because some people get offended by the use of the term.

    It is what it is. I for one don't play the PC game. If your wrist is not locked and is "limp" then lock it, dangit!

    Your right! I am gonna start calling it "Flaccid-wristing" instead of a "limp" wristing and "boner-wristing for a "locked tight" wrist. :D

    Yup! That sounds a helluva lot better to me! ;) :cool: :D

    The Beretta 92 doesn't fit my personal tastes (BHP, CZ, Sig are my preferences in similar guns) but it is a heck of a good gun...and reliable. I would state nearly the same about my experience with UMC.

    1) Check yourself (the shooter). Get together with another seasoned shooter or instructor and determine for certain if your own habits are a factor, because that's a cheap fix that can pay dividends for a lifetime.

    2) Check the mags. They oughta be made by either Beretta or MecGar. If this is not the case, you need to upgrade. Buy MecGar.

    I don't buy much UMC, but I haven't had any issues with that which I've shot. A 92fs oughta digest it like a champ. It's far more likely that it's the shooter, the mags, or the gun. Check them in that order, as they escalate in time and expense.
