I'm considering adding a Beretta 92FS to my collection. I really like the trigger and I shot great groups with one at the range. As far as aesthetics- it's probably my favorite. Not to mention the cheaper prices of 9mm.

One question for folks in the know... I noticed some play between the end of the barrel and the slide when the slide is closed. Is this common? I would think it may affect accuracy, even though my groups were pretty good for me.

Thank in advance!

Yes, it's common and nothing to worry about. From what I've read over at the Beretta forum, 92's vary as to how much "wobble" there is in a barrel I myself have a M96 that has no play, it shoots great! I also have a 92 compact, an older gun, (1988) and it has some play in the barrel, However, it shoots very well, The play in the barrel dosen't seem to affect accuracy at all. I wouldn't worry about it.

I've had a Taurus PT-92 and a Beretta 92FS and they both exhibit a bit of play here. It doesn't seem to affect accuracy for everyday shooters. I understand that some of those who shoot competition with the 92 have a little extension that screws onto the slide to make the barrel a bit more steady for extreme accuracy.
