Worth Every Penny

 

I've had my kit for over 4 years now. I put 800 rds through it the first day I bought it. It is very good to practice trigger transitions, introduce new shooters to the Beretta, and get lots of good reps w/out spending a fortune. Never had any failures to feed - any problems have been with the ammo. Only gripe I have is that the magazines are very expensive. I wish they held more rds. It would be nice if Beretta offered the .22 kit as a package deal with a new 92 - two guns in one. Bottom line: it's worth every penny.

Misleading Documentation

 

Got my Training kit today and in the docs it states that the practice kit contains three different recoil springs to work with different types of ammo. Mine didn't have that, so I called customer support and they said that it no longer ships with that. They also couldn't tell me what lb the spring was that shipped with the kit. That's fine, i guess I'll figure out what works, but update your product documentation.

cheap practice

 

received the unit about 10days ago.It replaces the .40 cal barrel and slide with no problem. I have about 100 CCI mini mags and 350 federal 36 grain jhps through it with only one failure to eject. Good for practicing DA to SA transition without spending a fortune.

Seems a bit expensive

 

Ok, I get that it mounts to my existing 92FS frame and all, but for less that $350 that Beretta is asking one could get Beretta Neos, or a Ruger Mark III, or a S&W 22A and not have to fuss with switching things around. I'm consdering this but leaning towards getting a whole separate firearm for much less.

92 Practice kit

 

I just got the practice kit about a week ago. I ordered it on a Tuesday and it was in my hands on Thursday. Shipping was free. I think it is great. I have only shot about 300 rounds through it with only one failure to eject. I have never had a failure with the 9mm. The aluminium slide is much lighter then the stainless. It's great using the same grip and trigger pull for practice. Rear sights are adjustable but it shoots perfect right out of the box. The speed loader is helpful in the loading the magazine. The magazine is only 10 rounds. A larger mag would be nice. Ammo is super cheap. So I can use more ammo working drills before switching back to 9MM. Glad I bought it.

Pricey but worth it..I think

 

I was interested in buying one of these and was watching the Beretta web site as they were out of stock. As soon as I saw they were in stock I ordered it. Very fast shipping. Once received , I wiped it down with oil and assembled the kit on my 92FS. I took it to the range and fired several magazines of Federal HV value pack ammo without any issues. Then for grins and chuckles I fired several magazines of Federal Target (711b). I was told that I should use only HV ammo in any conversion unit, but it functioned just fine with the target ammo. Accuracy was better than expected, at 7yds, 10 shots into a quarter size group and most of those shots in a single hole a nickel would cover. Not a target 22 but pretty good. I had 1 failure to feed at round 97 but that was the only issue. As far as the practice kit theory, the gun has many differences in weight, recoil, and it seemed the trigger felt a little different. All in all I think it is going to work but that is to be determined. I would at this point recommend this product to friends.

Very Nice!

 

I have put about 500 rounds using the kit on a 92FS. At first it jammed a lot and I could only put 7 rounds in the magazine. Now it can handle 10 rounds fine. Shoots llike a dream and the adjustable sight is a great bonus. CCI Minimags (36 or 40 gr) or Winchester 333 seem to work fine.

Could be way better!

 

Lets start with jam jam jam jam jam jam then we can go to the worst packing of anything i have ever bought online had to send first one back it was so damaged in transit. Returning it was the best part of whole transaction! To be fair it could be the mags but for 45 bucks a pop it sure as hell shouldn't be the mags! And for just under 400 bucks for the kit it sure as damn hell not be the kit. When it works it is as fun as shooting can possibly be and with living in commifornia it feels good to stick it to dumbest educated governmental officials by only having one pistol in my name! That's why it even gets a three star rating. i would recommend buy any other 22 pistol unless overpriced cool factor is your thing. Beretta if you read this please post any advice easily found on your website i would like hear what you have to say in response and i know you can contact me i have been getting emails everyday since my purchase, got one while writing this. PS the 92fs 9mm is fantastic!

Cheap shooting (Done)

 

Overall a great kit. Have had mine for a few years now and very happy with it. A failure to feed now and again but it keeps you sharp on clearing a round. I will shoot a few mags through before switching to the 9mm upper to get back in touch with the gun before shooting the expensive rounds.

Totally worth it

 

I am a Beretta 92 fanatic. I love the feel, the accuracy, and the dis/re-assembly. So when I saw that they also made a .22 conversion kit, I knew I should get one. First of all, my .22 conversion kit may be unique, but it fails to fire on Federal 36gr ammo. I even had a Beretta gunsmith put in a new firing pin and spring (100% free of charge under Beretta's excellent customer service). But it still would fail to fire Federal 36gr. Then I tried Remington, Winchester, and CCI: no failures to fire. I don't blame Beretta at all, afterall, it's a high quality handgun, so pay a few dollars more for higher quality ammo. The .22 conversion kit is a solid practice opportunity for 92 fans. I recommend it for anyone who loves their 92 and want to shoot a lot more, but not pay for high priced 9mm ammo.
