Ranger +P+ in a 92FS?
I currently carry Hornady 135gr +P Critical Duty in my 92FS. Found some Ranger T 127gr +P+ and was thinking about trying a couple of boxes. As far as function and wear, should I be concerned? This is primarily a HD gun, but gets carry duty on weekends.

Have tried the ranger 127s in the 92 no problems. This makes me want carry the beretta tomorrow.

Just remember there is no industry standard detailing specifications for +P+ ammunition. +P is as high as SAAMI goes for pressures in manufactured ammunition. Your only truly correct action for is ask the manufacturer if the specific model and serial number series can handle that specific +P+ round.
What you stand to gain with going to the +P+ over the +P is most likely going to be negligible and not really worth the extra wear and tear.

I think the gun should take it .. But as others said +P is as hight as rated load so +P+ could be anything .. And I own some of that .. But I think you could fire some and check it out see how it looks ...
I am pretty sure that is one +P+ that is not too bad .. I have some +P+ stuff I would never fire in any handgun but I dont think Ranger is one

I don't use +P+ in anything.
You're not only overstressing the gun with the overpressure, but you're potentially running outside the pressure curve that the gun's action is designed for, making a malfunction more likely. Not to mention voiding the gun's warranty.

I would use it for carry if it works OK. Practice with the standard stuff. I heard that police depts. were replacing their pistols after 2500 rounds of +P+. I know I could never afford to wear one out.

the gun should take it with out any problems. you will not shoot enough of the +p+ ammo to wear it out.

I have run 500 or so rounds thru one of my G-19's, including one session of 200 +P in the morning and 250 +P+ Ranger T in the afternoon of a gunfighting course I took more than a year ago. This is my carry ammo with another 1800 rounds in storage. I have not had any issues and inspected for overpressure signs, none found and every round has gone bang.

If you feel you really require +P they won't bother the 92FS

Just buy a pistol chambered in .357sig.

What's that saying? I think it's "you're not a SEAL until you eat Italian steel."
My understanding is that hot rounds have a history of blowing the slide off the back of a 92 and into the user's face. I believe there was a correction to the design to prevent this, but I'm not sure what models or vintage it applies to.
Here's an article on the subject.

This problem was corrected a long time ago and any 92FS is fine.

I have run a bunch through a couple of G 19's....never had a problem...my 2 cents!

Trust me, big boom wheel guns are the next frontier of guns for me. I like hand cannons.
