Yes, I went ahead and got another one - I have a serious Beretta purchasing problem :)

This one came with factory night sights and a 3rd magazine

Someone is sending me a steel trigger, and I will likely buy an Elite II hammer for it. I already installed a D spring in it. I also ordered a Xgrip to use fullsize grips in the compact...

Thanks.

Once I get some new grips in for my Wilson Brigadier, I'll have a new "Beretta Wheel" photo up next weekend :)

I like it. I don't see any problem here. More = better!
+1 As long as the money holds out, you can get ammo, and the wife doesn't throw you out of the house. And even that isn't too bad if she lets you take the guns and ammo! :D:D

Congrats. Nice pistol.

Very nice Shipwreck. I always wanted a 92 compact,, and If I ran across one set up like that,, Id probably bite.

I like the compacts as well. They fit my hand a smidge better than the full size version. That being said my most recent "B-retta" is a M9A1. I haven't even shot it yet!

I just loved the way it looks - the M9A1 models (either fullsize or compact) are some of the best looking Beretta pistols, IMHO.

I've owned non railed compacts in the past - now I usually stick with fullsize models. But, I was looking for 1 more Beretta to add to the wheel. Loved the appearance of this one. They initially only came out in Inox, but once they released them in black, I knew I had to get one eventually.

Wait a second. This thread feels like de-ja vu...

Ok - just got back from shooting 200 rounds thru this gun. Shot some runds all in DA, 1 handed and 2 handed. 7 and 15 yards.

Damn, I like this gun. Put many rounds thru 1 hole at 7 yards many times.

I really like the grips. I didn't like the Wilson grips on my fullsize WIlson Brigadier. I just changed them out and sold them to buy these for the compact. Hogue grips for the Beretta 92 compacts are fatter than they are for the fullsize. But man - the Wilson VZ grips for the compact are nice. These particular ones seem a bit more aggressive in the texture than the ones that came with the Brigadier Tactical.

Nice gun! I was the only one shooting something besides a Glock there at the range too.

Anyway - happy with the purchase! And, seeing as this is my 27th Beretta 92 variant, it's not like I didn't know what I was getting :p
