    I'm a fan of the 92 series, but that tapered dust cover makes my brain hurt

    Once I noticed it, I can't unsee it. Apparently it came about when they started making the 96, and the tapered/slanted dust cover provided extra frame strength for the .40. Rather than make two separate lower receivers/frames for the 92 series and the 96, Beretta just started using the tapered frame on 92s also.

    Oh I got you now. I guess that is a dust cover. I never thought about the difference in the regular frame. I have both a 92 and 96 with the rail but donít care for it. Doesnít hurt performance tho. I never could get used to the Inox finish but still like my stainless 92.
    I gotta say that Iím very displeased to see Beretta using polymer parts nowadays. I feel fortunate to have picked up some super low cost steel replacement parts kits complete with one grip panel (itís a GI thing) and also extractor and spring for when I wanna do a rebuild. Thatís the only thing Iíve ever had fail on a 92. My first police trade in with some serious miles on it.
    Lastly, if you really like the way they shoot and feel, you owe yourself a compact. Beretta got that one right for sure.

    Which parts are plastic on this one? I do not know much about the 92 series but always liked the look.

    They are a dream to shoot compared to most auto’s. They rate up there with the P-08, 1911 and a couple others for me. Trigger, safety lever and op rod are plastic on some of the newer stock but easily replaced.

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    If you like the Beretta 92, you might like the Beretta 84 ďCheetahĒ or the Browning BDA 380. The Cheetah looks like a smaller version of the 92.

    The BDA was made by Beretta. The Cheetah has the cut-away slide like the 92. The Browning version does not.

    My family enjoys shooting it. When we go to the range my ďkidsĒ (30-somethings) always argue over who gets the BDA first.

    A Cheetah or a BDA is a nice baby brother to a 92.

    Yeah Gator, I got it just a few days after ordering. Not much to celebrate when you have a handful tho. I just couldn’t pass on that deal.
