Does the 9mm beretta g take the same grip plate as the 92 f or 92 FS? I thankyou. I thought I was bidding on an FS and ended up with a G. I;m sure I'll love it, just need to put some nice grips on it. I thankyou

I am pretty sure the G is from late 70's early 80's? I went to a gun show a month ago and saw a model "G" for like $350 and they where a bit beat up and some rust on the frame, the barrels looked okay. The guide rod? was metal not that plastic crap. Hope you got a good deal
Has Taurus really spent more on shipping customers their firearms back to them than actual sales?

No, Beretta produced the 92 in the "G" configuration up until fairly recently. Beretta USA still occasionally sells "G" uppers. Many Brigadiers and Vertecs came in the "G" configuration, as did all of the Elite I/IA/II pistols.

Congrats on your purchase, Trago! The grips are the same for both the 92FS and 92G. I think most Beretta fans would consider it a pleasant surprise to wind up with a 92G over a 92FS.

the grips are the same...

G = decocker only
FS = decocker/safety
D = double action only

that's all those mean at the end of the name..

only the compact and vertec models have different grips than the normal 92FS/M9..

beretta info

I thankyou one and all for your wealth of information, I've rounded out my sig and browning collection, with exception to anything with polymer on it and am trying to do so with Beretta now, It's one thing I know will have my two boys flippin coins when I take that final dirt nap. I did the same with S&W but that didn't take long as I have a major aversion to the polymer stuff being stamped out and the last thing I looked at, excited as Ralphie and his Red Ryder, was the bodyguard, my word, in my not so humble opinion, I never saw anything so hideous. There's just so much great stuff to look at out there, and you guys make it so easy to figure out what's what, thanks again. Safety=Longevity Trago

FS, G and D grips are the same. Earlier F models have a smaller hammer pin and use a different left side grip panel.
