I am pretty impressed with this Girsan Regard, it certainly can hold it’s own against a true Beretta. I am also liking this Ransom Stead Rest, being able to rest in offhand from a tripod is pretty cool.
I thought the closer chrono speeds would translate to tighter groups.
I was observing the triggers when you were shooting and it’s visible how different they are. I think I would say the Beretta lost this one.
yeah, the ones that wins the chrono data test seldom seems to actually perform much better if any, weird
well, yeah, taking that trigger and especially the cost into consideration, for sure. i own several beretta models, including a 92x and this cheap girsan is better, it is interesting. but then again, you gotta take into consideration who is doing the shooting. i am used to competition trigger, short pulls, light weight, solid wall, short reset. so a firearm with a trigger outside that is subject to some human error for sure, doesn’t necessarily mean it is worse.
I’m a trigger fan. That’s why I like Sigs and H&K’s so much. A trigger can make a huge difference.
SAY IT AINT SOOOOOO!!!
Hovers over my 92FS and pets it…
The Beretta 92 is such a nice looking gun, It is an underappreciated firearm,imo. I hear a lot of vets detest them for some reason though.
I put my life on mine. I still keep one in every room of the house.
Any idea why it received flak from some servicemen?
Early models had issues, some units poorly maintained weapons. Some soldiers have small paws. Its not a one size fits all weapon by any means.
One of my early evaluations I talk about this… its a common problem for some people with smaller hands.
not a big Sig guy but love the HK though i sadly have never dropped the money for one
i can’t speak to the military side of things, was never in. but i can say that many people have expressed the flaw in the 92 design from beretta was the barrel and locking block design. now, i have never had an issue with any of my berettas so can’t say either way. all that said, interestingly enough, the barrel/lug/locking block on the girsan is the ONLY thing i have found so far to be different. @Joe-Bob @Sarge4206th so maybe they tried to address that issue up front?
I didn’t like AR’s because I was an 11B in the Army. I bought my wife an AR and it never jammed like those M-4’s did. I changed my mind.
government = lowest bidder, maybe something to do with that? lol
I keep hearing about this pistol. May need to pick one up just because. Add to my collection
at this point, i can definitely tell you it is worth the money for sure, should be able to find them cheaper than a taurus… only had this one a few months so longevity is unknown, but by all accounts is built just as well as a beretta or taurus so shouldn’t be any issues.
I have slowly picked up different Beretta models over the years. Have a Taurus, that was my first 9mm pistol! Sold my original when I found an original SS Beretta, but I have since picked one up again.
I think I have like 8 different Beretta units now? Something like that.
same here, have always loved the design of the 92/96 stuff, even the cheetah line
Oh yeah… i have had a 84 off and on. I want one again. Still have my 21 too. I shoot them well. I have converted nearly all of mine to G models. Including my 92S…
