Default Beretta 92FS

Does anyone know if it's possible to win leg points with a stock beretta 92FS with adjustable sights?

Is the M9A3 legal for leg points?

US Government Beretta M9 / M9A1 / M9A3 Service Pistols or commercial versions of the same type and caliber are allowed. I’m sure folks get point with these and you can earn “starter points” at the SAFS M9 EIC match.

Thanks for the reply. I know the small arms firing school uses it. I don't want to buy another pistol and I want to try EIC pistol. I just hope I have a chance using a 92FS.

Buy some 25 & 50 yd. bullseye pistol targets and take it to the range. You need to be able to shoot above 250 (minimum cut score) in a 300 point match with 10 of the shots being slow fire at 50 yds.
Most leg matches you need to be in the 265 or better range to be in the top 10%.
You'll know fairly quick if the gun / shooter combination is capable.

There is a list of accepted pistols in the CMP rule book which can be found online. I'm pretty sure your gun is legal.

Another thought....you are in a good area for bullseye competition.
Harrisburg Hunters and Anglers , Boyertown Sportsmans and Palmyra Sportsman have very active bullseye programs and each of them host at least one EIC match. I believe Boyertown has several. All nice places to shoot
Match listing can be found here www.njpistol.com

My guess is the pistol will not be the limiting factor if you are just begining.

Bullseye pistol is the most humbling thing ive ever done.

Go shoot your beretta and have fun.

While anything is possible, I think you’ll struggle on the long line with that gun. The short line will be hard enough, but I don’t think a factory 92 has it in it to be competitive at the 50 yard line.

You’ll see many “Berettas” on the line, but they’re highly modified. I don’t personally know anyone who’s legged with a stock one. There are guys shooting polymer guns and making the cut at Perry, but they’re already legged out and trying for a prize gun or just trying to do it to say they did.

If you want points, I’d recommend getting a .45 Range Officer.

Good luck, Mike.

I remember my first match, I was placed alongside the club champion using a Smith 52. I had an F Bob Chow 1911 so no excuses. I didn't even hit the paper on the 50 yd target. The champ meanwhile just plugged away, every shot in the black. I wanted to cry. The Rimfire was no better and I used a Chow tuned model 41. If there weren't so many people, I would have started crying.

I bought a 92FS and took it to the range the same day. Out of the box bone stock with USA white box115 gr ammo I fired a 9 ring size group at 50 yards offhand. The group was not centered so score was moot. I had Roddy Toyota tune it up some at the trigger and add a bushing and an LPA sight. Then I legged out with it using hand loads. One other thing Roddy did was solder a piece onto the sight to make a deeper and better rear notch.
