Baretta 92/Fs for center fire

Post by Flytrap1 on 2/24/2018, 9:15 am

I was thinking of using my Baretta 92/fs for shooting center fire just to try something different and get it out of my safe once in a while. It's a stock out of the box pistol. I don't want to spend a fortune on it I've already done that with all my other bullseye guns. What's the minimum I should do to it to make it a worthy competitor. I'm thinking at the very least a red dot mounted into the rear site dovetail notch. Any recommendations or suggestions would be appreciated.

Sams does great work, but his waiting time is usually many months. He also demands top dollar for his work. For something less than a full blown accuracy job, you might contact Dave Salyer. Less wait and more bang for your buck.

I have one of the Salyer pistols.  New barrel and new sights.  I believe he worked on the trigger also.  I am entirely pleased with mine.

+1 for Dave Salyer.
Mine was one of the first 92's when he started accuracy work on them.
It has served me well over the years.

Since the 92 is double-action, does that mean your trigger doesn't have to weigh 4 lbs or over? Since in single action, it's 9 lbs. Would you be able to lighten up the double stage so it's just 2 lbs with the hammer cocked, and have the single action about 7 lbs, and still be legal for competition?

The trigger pull, single action, must be 4 pounds or greater. Single action means "hammer cocked".  The double action trigger must be operable, which in general for the 92 means you can't set any overtavel stop so close that the double action will not work. 

I  think you meant "double action about 7 lbs" in the last sentence.

4lbs is for service pistol, no? General centerfire is 2.5.

Sorry for the amateur question, I didn't mean to confuse the situation.

I have a stock (almost*) 92FS that I "dropped**" a drop-in KKM barrel into a few years ago.  Just adding that barrel moved the group to ten ring size at 50 yards shooting 115gr full power service pistol ammo off hand.  I can't talk longevity, though.  I got a first generation Sam's gun a little while later and shot it instead.

As to the topic of sights, I use a B-Square scope mount (at least I think it's a B-Square) with an Ultradot from time to time for "playing," with softer loads, but I've never had the confidence in the mount to expect great things from it.

* I drilled and tapped the trigger in my stock 92FS for a trigger stop.  Part of the reason I did was because the Beretta rep told me I couldn't drill that trigger. To be fair, a HSS drill bit wouldn't drill it, but a small ball mill worked fine.  Tapping was fun!  Over the years the stop screw has imprinted the frame.

** Installing the drop-in barrel, in my case, included some slight persuasion with a small mallet.
