Our Assessment: The Model 92F is the civilian version of the M9 military variation that replaced the Colt Govt. Model as the standard government issue sidearm in the United States. This pistol was made in 1987, the second year delivery was made to the United States, but this gun is still in almost New condition. What a great weapon to give as a gift or for home defense. You know we are all fans of the 1911 here, but if it not going to be a 1911, it better be a Beretta.
