Been wanting to go to a DA/SA for off-duty carry, as my duty weapon has the same action. Because of this, I've been carrying my duty P229 off-duty more and more, and my G19 less and less.
I recently acquired a Wilson Combat Beretta 92G Brigadier and like it a lot. Always liked the Beretta 92 series. Decided to do a smaller version of the big Beretta for off-duty carry, so I purchased a Beretta 92FS Compact Railed.
Did some research and made a few calls to Wilson Combat. Other than their laser-engraved logo, there is no work that they would to my 92FSC that I can't do myself, at a savings of over $400.
Ordered all the parts I need to customize the 92FSC, they'll start to trickle in over the next several days. Elite II hammer, steel trigger, extra power recoil spring, G10 grips in Dirty Olive, mag guide, D hammer spring (and an ISMI 19lb hammer spring for comparison), and a couple different mag releases to try out. When the parts come in I can slick up the action.
I'll carry it with a Surefire XC-1 mounted. As soon as I get a chance, I'll go by Blackpoint Tactical and have them build a Leather WING holster for it; strong-side OWB with no cant, and a magazine/flashlight combo pouch. I'll carry a 13rd mag in the weapon and a full-size 15rd mag for a reload.
26 is a good weapon! 19 is good too. I bought the last one I have for $400 nib less than 18 hours after it was purchased for 519.99 plus tax. The mans wife got pissed and made him sell it. His lose my gain, he even showed me the receipt.
Last Wednesday I went to the range to do a few things, had time to fire a couple mags of WWB 115grn FMJ out of her. Shot fine, no surprises, except for the fact that the sights were dead on out of the box.
Before I went, I replaced the stock hammer spring with an ISMI 19lb 1911 mainspring. That's my go-to for Beretta 92's. Lightens it up considerably and I've never had a misfire in the 6 years and several guns I've done it to.
I've been out of the country for a few days, all my upgrade parts should have came in while I was gone. I'll install them Saturday evening, perform a little judicial polishing of parts, and back to the range on Sunday. In addition to ball, I'll run a few different carry loads through her and she what she likes.
