The Beretta 92 is indeed quite heavy because there's not plastic to speak of. I'm not sure where you got the 'quite a kick' part. The heavier weight helps reduce the recoil and the 92 is chambered in 9mm. 9's don't kick all the hard. Have you ever shot a 1911 45ACP? That's a kick!
I don't do a lot of firing maybe twice a year can't afford the ammo, like I said probably just me. one thing that may effect it though is the trigger
I can go out after I haven't fired in awhile and pull the trigger and it doesn't fire and I say hey what's wrong then I remember it's not a hair trigger
has a lot of loose space to take up for the final pull/firing "hard trigger" That also might be affecting my aim etal
fired the 45 as a Regular army driver/TC on a Sheridan tank as a personal weapon back in the 70's didn't seem to my recollection that the kick was that much.
In the late 80'/early 90's my reserve unit transitioned to and practiced a little with the 92 didn't like the way it fired but sleek looking weapon
so when I was looking for a hand gun decided on it.

1911 is one of my favs.

I would still love a K31 but I'm not willing to pay the current asking prices.

Yes a 45 is on my want/dream list with a 45/70, something that shoots a 500 Jeffery just because I want them.
perhaps when I win the lottery... :2 thumbs up:

Most gun stores will take a trade-in especially a Beretta 92 in good or better condition. If you want to move to a 45. Compared to a 45 I do not see where 92FS/M9 "Kicks" more.
Cost wise 9mm ammo is cheaper than 45.

Milo. It seem you have Champagne Tastes with a Root Beer pocket book.

SAVE your spent brass and trade for live ammo is a way to cut costs. Best Wishes

Regarding the Beretta 92... buy any decent Beretta body that is cheap. Parts kits go for about $30, barrels can be had for $125 to $200 depending upon what you want. After that you practically have a new pistol.

PSA has optic ready M-4s on sale for $469 Valentine's Day special. Not truly milsup, but if you like the platform that's pretty cheap.
