Just purchased my very first Beretta today down at FT.Bragg...Couldn't resist going to the army supply store down the road and getting the M9 holster for it...I feel complete now.

Do yourself a favor & replace the trigger return spring with one from Wolf. The factory version is fairly fragile & will possibly break when you least need it to.

Aside from that, they're damn fine guns! I shoot mine for IDPA/IPSC, etc.

Nice L8models. Reminds me of mine that is still in the mail

So a little heavier recoil spring(16-17lbs) and a lower hammer spring( Standard is 12? so like a 10 or 11lbs). For smoother trigger pulling and better cyle? Or am i thinking the wrong way?

Say for shooting Standard and +p loads.

Standard loads won't require any change in the recoil spring. Keep in mind, the slide will slam forward harder with a stouter spring as well.

I did change my hammer spring. Lighter doesn't mean smoother, though. A professional trigger job can get that done easily enough.

polish the sides and catches of the sear to a mirror finish using 800+ grit sand paper and a felt dremmel bit. THAT will make the trigger glassy smooth

Congratulations.

I own an M9 and love it.
