    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
