Picked up a Beretta Vertec Inox model last week, finally had time to shoot it a bit today.
I quite like the straight grip on the Vertec and the slightly shorter barrel giving it a more squared of finish compared to the standard 92fs.

As always pics to follow :)

Very attractive gun. I went berzerk this week and picked up a Vertec and a CX4 Storm carbine, same caliber, 9mm, and uses the same mags. Seems like potential for a lot of fun. Great pics, shoot safe and enjoy.

I've owned one of those when they first came out. Very nice!

Great photography, though I'd pass on the Vertec personally, as the grip angle doesn't suit my hand.
I do like my 92FS (Not to mention the Elite II, & 96 I used to own).
Is yours new or second hand?

This one is slightly used.
I just missed out on an Elite II that I wish I had been a little bit quicker on.

Thanx, it was getting late in the afternoon so I was trying to grab what little sunlight was left for the pics.

Very nice, enjoy! Just shot my 92FS Inox at the range yesterday. :)

I bought a new Inox Vertec five or six years ago. Great shooter. You can do wonders with the trigger pull by "optimizing" the hammer spring--Wolf Springs sells a family of springs with varying rating weight in one-lb increments. Takes a couple of minutes to change out.

I've added a Beretta .22lr practice kit, as well as a M96 .40SW upper which both work flawlessly on the 92FS frame.

I was just looking at a site that has 16 and 18LB hammer springs. I'm going to order some for my beretta's to see how much of a difference they make.

Thanks :)
I'm in Australia so the price here won't mean much to anyone else, that said I paid about $1000.
Beretta prices have doubled here for some reason this decade, a new standard 92 inox model is between 2000-2500, not many people buy them new now when there are many better hadguns for alot less.

I believe the factory hammer spring is rated around 21lbs. I paid Beretta for a "trigger job" and as part of that they installed a much lighter hammer spring which I believe was 15 or 16 lb. While that worked fine with 9 mm, and the trigger pull was signficantly reduced, the pistol would not function reliably with the .22 lr practice kit. The hammer strikers weren't hard enough. I replaced whatever was in there with an 18 lb spring and the .22 kit works reliably, and the trigger pull is still satisfactory. Wolf Spring co. sells a kit of springs with values from 15 to 20 lbs (approximately) so if you have access to that,
it might be worth a try to give you some options. Changing out the spring takes a couple of minutes. Good luck.

I'll have to check if they have the pack, would be nice to really fine tune it with the various springs.

Some pics of the Vertec with the 92fs. Both Inox.

I use the Beretta Practise Kit as well, I get occasional light strikes in single action using CCI standard velocity ammo, they never fail to go off in double action.
I have a Beretta D model main spring fitted, it dropped the double action pull to around 8 pounds, IIRC. Part number C99001.

Great pix. I also like the straight backstrap of the Vertec. Feels more natural and less bulky than the grip frame of the 92FS. On my M1911's, I have the straight mainspring housing installed because it fits my hand so much better, and makes the gun point more readily on target for me.
