  1. Love your maintenance videos! I noticed that you don't have any videos for the Beretta 92FS. Can you do a series videos around the care and maintenance of the 92FS?

    Also it would really help me out to see you guys do an installation of the Beretta Steel Parts kit which replaces the polymer trigger, safety, mag release button, and guide rod. And maybe you can show the tools you'll need for the job.

    Thanks! Keep up the great work and videos!
