Beretta 92 Upgrades

A. XS Sights DXT2 Big Dot Sights for the Beretta 92, 96/92 Vertec and 92A1 feature a bright, easy-to-see .188-inch-diameter ring (color options consist of orange or yellow) surrounding a tritium dot paired with a shallow, U-shaped rear aperture. That aperture (which is also available with an optional tritium bar or non-tritium white stripe) provides enhanced visibility of the front sight. The high-visibility post combined with the low-profile design creates a wide field-of-view when teamed with the tritium dot in the front, forming a quick/instinctive “dot-the-I style” flash sight picture when seconds count. MSRP: $132;

B. Machined from solid 416 stainless steel bar stock that is heat-treated to a Rockwell hardness of 39 to 43 and boasting a tensile strength of 180,000 psi, Bar-Sto Precision Machine’s Beretta 9mm 92 Semi-fit Barrel boasts a 1:16-inch twist. The machining, boring and rifling processes are performed in-house to maintain critical, accuracy-enhancing tight tolerances and top-notch quality. Use either the OEM locking block and pins or purchase new ones (sold separately). Minor fitting is required, and the company offers its own optional gunsmithing services. MSRP: $240;

C. In addition to being lighter and thinner than competitive offerings, Alumagrips Standard Smooth FS92 Grips are CNC-machined from aircraft-grade aluminum and feature either an untextured or a checkered surface. Other models contain 1-inch circles/ovals that can be custom engraved with images, initials or logos. Color options include black, olive-drab and clear anodized finishes. Smooth grips are also available for the Beretta Vertec line. MSRP: $54.95;

D. The Wilson Combat Deluxe Spring Kit, Duty Use, Beretta 90 Series, Full-Size provides the essential components to give the favorite Beretta a new lease on life, no matter its intended purpose. Each spring is rated for standard-velocity or +P loads. Chrome-silicon-steel recoil springs resist taking a set—even after thousands of compression cycles—for improved performance and reliability. Two hammer springs are included, a 16-pound model and a 14-pound, reduced-power variant. MSRP: $19.96;

E. Constructed from heat-treated carbon steel, ProMag Industries’ Beretta 92F 9mm (17) Rd Flush Fit Blue Steel Magazine combines an aftermarket option with the added durability of a corrosion-resistant black-oxide finish, the enhanced firepower of two extra rounds and the convenience of a flush fit. A glass-filled-nylon follower ensures smooth feeding, while a chrome-silicon spring allows for long-term, fully loaded storage without losing tension. MSRP: $28.99;
