    Bought my first 92fs inox yesterday. I love the looks and feel of this pistol. Can anyone give me any upgrade suggestions. Just something that can dress it up a little or some "must do" functional upgrades.

    The Beretta 92 in all its variants is a fine gun on its own. Maybe look into some bling (grips, shiny parts), and maybe consider some sighting options if you so choose. Likely a polymer recoil spring guide rod in that one, which will work just fine, but some people like to upgrade to a steel one. I believe there's a kit that will allow 1911 style "cocked and locked" carry, but I could be mistaken. As always, I'm sure there are myriad trigger upgrades on the market, but I always found the trigger to be just fine on its own for what it is.

    There's not just a HUGE aftermarket for these guns because it's simply not really needed.

    I've read about the guide rod and already checked it out on beretta's web site. Probably gonna make that purchase soon. I was also looking at a adjustable rear sight. I want to shoot it first(it was raining at my house yesterday) to see if it is a necessary upgrade.

    You'll likely find it dead on accurate within reasonable pistol distances.

    Ever wonder why not so many people talk about these? Because there ain't much to bitch about! ;)

    The plastic guide rod is superior to the metal one. It prevents binding of the spring under severe dirt conditions.

    For the op, there is nothing that needs to be done to a 92 to improve it. You can change grips if you want but all you need is a cleaning kit, holster, and ammo. There are lots of aftermarket addons but none of them improve the gun. Its not like a glock that needs a complete overhaul to run right....

    I found no need to change mine from the way it came from the factory. It is one of those things that just work.

    Lol at the glock comment. My 92A1 was perfect. Just having difficulty finding a holster. As for the glock comment my G22 never need any tweeking.

    If you absolutely have to change something, get a D spring and the skeletonized hammer. Looks better and improves the trigger pull.

    Young man,(or old man)you don't need to jump right into all that stuff right away. Shoot it the way you bought it for a while, get used to it and break it in. You did say that you love the looks and feel of this pistol. get good with it the way it comes before you add all that functional upgrade stuff.( see, "stuff", and read,"crap) Do you need all that stuff, or just want it so you can make your club look bigger than the other guys, clubs? Makes more of an impression if you can shoot well with the thing. I love this pistol. All I had tacticool on mine were the glow in the dark Tritium sights. Those are pricey, and the only reason they were on it was that it was a police department turn-in. I did not need them, and my wife said that in a dark room, they almost lit up my face like a target

    HM2Grunt you are right. I guess i was just sending out a feeler to see what the most popular upgrades/complaints there were. I finally got to shoot a couple mags on sunday. From 10 yards this pistol is awesome. I still need A LOT more range time to get even more comfortable with it. 9mm ammo is still hard to find in my area and pricey if you do find it. I would like to keep what i have stocked for a rainy day.

    Only thing I've wanted on my Beretta was a good trigger job. But break her in first......get to know her a bit first.

    The only thing I have to do on my Glocks are upgrading to tritium sights. Everything else is just personaly stuff, not reliability or function modifications. I'm kinda curious what JonM is refering to, but that belongs on a different thread.

    If you have big hands, these Hogue grips are great. I've got

    them on my 92.

    One person mentioned it already. A very simple spring replacement will ease the DA spring pull a bit for a touch more accuracey. Its called the D spring and its a 5 minute modification. Other than that just shoot it like everyone else is saying. Ihave several 92's all different and I love them all.
