    New to me Beretta Compact (pics!) w/ lanyard - decocker only.

    Went to my LGS yesterday and saw a lovely "Beretta 92 Compact L", put it through its' paces...then went home to see if it 'called to me'. It did

    So I get there, and the guy behind the counter (we all know each other) says he's done some trigger work for the original owner to make things smoother (the DA pull is lighter than I remember from shooting a full size 92FS years ago). Very smooth, too, but that's nothing new w/ these. He said he'd be happy to replace the spring if I desired later.

    This model has a lanyard, and is decocker only (no safety). Hadn't noticed that yesterday, but that made me like it even more! I don't know if there's anything to be had, info-wise on a "92 Compact L" but if any of you know anything, I'd be grateful to hear (I'll be snooping around as well).!

    I really like the WC grip color w/ the blued finish.

    Very pretty, congratulations! I would have had a hard time leaving it there at the shop also.

    “Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell

    It has Wilson Combat company grips on it. Did they do any action work on it?

    That's what I was wondering. Is it just the WC grips or has WC "blessed" it?!

    The image below is taken directly from the Wilson Combat site. The grips on your purchased appear to be authentic WC grips looks to me. And if they did some work on it you may have just made the purchase of the year!

    I have a shooting buddy that has a regular sized 92 that was sent to Wilson for upgrades, its the smoothest best shooting 92 /99 that i have ever had the pleasure of driving.
    I think it cost him like his Middle SON, course he says that one was his least favorite child anyway so no biggy.
