HA! First Beretta post!

Anyway, I own a 92FS. The problem is the accuracy sucks. I've fired it from a bench rest, and there is no improvement. The barrel is clean, and the gun has been well taken care of.

It seems to like 147 grain Federal Hydra-Shocks the best, as accuracy improves immensely.

Any way to improve the accuracy? Or at least other ammo that might match Hydra-Shock preformance?

First, define sucks.

Second, have a buddy shoot it to rule you out as the problem. If that don't work, get a jarvis barrel. I was going to do that, but mine shoots too good to even bother.

Must be either you or the barrel because mine is awesome. Have it checked out.

I'll have a buddy shoot it. If the accuracy dosen't improve, where can I get a new barrel?

I agree with ben. What kind of sucks? My 92FS isn't really a tackdriver, but it easily handles MOP (minute of person). It can't compare with my Ruger MK II (government competition target), but that's comparing apples and oranges.

Basicly it shoots really low and to the left. I've tried using a benchrest to rule out my shooting, and it still does the same thing. The group is large, 4 - 5 inches.

However, when I switch to +p ammo, the groups tighen up, and wind up close to center of target.

The inside of the barrel is clean, no burs, dents or dings.

No failure to feed, eject, or any other problems with the gun.

My 92F shoots like a dream I can get very good groups and have never had any problems of any kind.

My 92f shot low and to the left untill I saw someone else shoot it ! I took a NRA class and learned how to breath, point of aim ,and pull, now I shoot dead on !

Care to elaborate on your techniques? Mine shoots slightly left, but all my handguns shoot left, or should I say, I shoot all my handguns to the left. I noticed that as the gun recoils in my hand the barrel moves up and to the left. What am I doing wrong? With adjustable sights, this isn't a problem, I just make adjustments, but the fixed sight guns like my Vaquero, Beretta, ect. have that little problem. I suppose I could drift the sight on the Beretta?

For match barrels, try the jarvis. Competitors use 'em and silencer companies use the 6 inch extended barrels. They make a great barrel, but my 92 shoots too good to bother paying the $200.

Odd, Beretta generally has a good reputation for accuracy. Mine shots better than me, which ain't saying much, I'll admit.

Low and left is a problem I have with many handguns. Jerking the trigger is the culprit not the pistol.

I can recommend the following book. It helped me fix my shooting mechanics. I got it from amazon.com for about $17.
