As a fan of air guns and firearms alike, I had high expectations for this piece, and it did not disappoint.

Design and Build Quality

The Beretta 92FS stands out immediately with its classic design, mirroring the aesthetics of the renowned firearm used by military and law enforcement worldwide. The attention to detail is remarkable, from the sleek lines of the slide to the ergonomic grip (real wood) that fits comfortably in the hand. The full-metal construction adds a reassuring heft (a full 2.75 lbs), giving it a solid feel that enhances the shooting experience. The nickel finish is flawless and adds durability to the pistol, ensuring it will withstand regular use and be around for the next generation of shooters to enjoy.

Performance and Accuracy

When it comes to performance, the Beretta 92FS shines. Powered by a 12-gram CO2 cartridge, this air pistol delivers consistent power with each shot. It can fire .177 caliber pellets at velocities up to 425 feet per second (fps), making it suitable for target practice and plinking. The blowback action adds to the realism, providing a satisfying kick with each shot.

Accuracy is another strong point of the 92FS. The rifled barrel design ensures that each pellet hits its mark with precision. Whether you’re shooting at paper targets or metal cans, this air pistol delivers tight groupings and consistent performance. The rear sight, adjustable for windage, allows for fine-tuning, ensuring you can dial in your shots perfectly.
