History of the Beretta 92FS
Designed in 1975 by Carlo Beretta, Giuseppe Mazzetti, and Vittorio Valle; the Beretta 92 (made in Italy) pistol is an evolution from the M1922 and M1951. Taking the open slide design from the M1922 and its alloy frame and locking barrel from the M1951. Along the way the Beretta 92 also adopted a direct feed and a "double-stacked" high capacity design to its magazine.
In order to meet the requirements of select law enforcement agencies, Beretta added a slide-mounted combined safety and docking lever. Thus the Beretta 92S was born and adopted by several Italian law enforcement and military units.
Eventually Beretta modified the 92SB (a special model with a firing pin block designed for the U.S. Air Force) with an enlarged hammer pin to stop the slide from flying off the frame in response to reports of defective slides during U.S. Military testing.
