Just shot my 92 for the first time. Have not shot pistol in two years. Did ok once I realized the bullets were hitting about 8" low at fifty feet. Using surplus middle east 9mm ammo which is old and probably contributing. (also need to upgrade my eyeglasses as I could not properly focus) What ammo is closest to NATO spec? Thanks all.

The Berreta is set up so that you'll hit POA if you put the white dot in the front sight over your target. Not the best for match shooting, but it works well if the target is moving and/or shooting back. I believe you can get different height rear sights to adjust if you want.

Maybe try a little closer until you get more aquainted with it.
You may even be pulling downward as you pull the trigger, anticipating the recoil.
Mine shot left and I could not drift the sight to the right...it's on there!
Finding someone with a sight pusher helped as it now cuts cloverleafs in the bullseye, RH side however, with WW 115 Grain bulkpack ammo and a "normal" sight picture.
I have seen Beretta factory rear sights offered with a windage adjustment and assorted blades for elevation...at a retail of $70, I will hold off a bit...due to sticker shock!

My 92FS shoots high with 115gr, POA with 124gr.

I remeber reading on one of the Beretta forums that this was a common complaint.

I bought a Mec Gar adjustable rear sight for my 92-FS for about $50.00 - $60.00. They make a white outline version and a dot version.

The rear dovetail slot is tapered. (I think I had to remove the old sight from left to right).

I used a nylon bench block and brass drift to get it off... it wasn't easy.
