    Because people whine about the 9/.40 grip being too big already.

    I would buy one in .45

    Sent from the Bacon isle at your local grocery store.

    I don't think that is a good design for .45.

    Don't you remember the stories of early failures with the M9 using NATO ammunition? They've since fixed that but it's a design that seems best suited for the 9mm caliber it was intended for.

    If I really wanted a Beretta in .45 there is the PX4. Not the same gun at all, but at least Beretta does make a .45 and a pretty decent one from what I understand.

    The 92 series is a great 9mm handgun. Making it a .45 seems like trying to force a square peg through a round hole.

    Get an m9 if you choose to stick with the 9mm route, the picatinny rail is worthwhile.

    Never thought about the 92 in 45ACP.. but the youngest's boy friend just got a new 92, and i really liked the feel of the piece.. AND instead of a double stack mag it could be a single like our old girl the 1911, and maybe even slimmer than the 92 is now..

    i remember those early issues as well.. if i remember right a SEAL was killed when his slide stop... didn't .. sad deal, but obviously it's fixed now.

    I would bet that we won't see any further significant development of the 92 platform by Beretta.
