When you disassemble a gun, usually for cleaning purposes, it's called field stripping. Semi-automatic handguns, including the Beretta 92FS model, come apart in relatively the same way. You'll need to have some cleaning cloths on hand, and it's important that you go from one step to the next to make sure that you don't skip any steps or lose any pieces of the gun during the fieldstripping process.

  1. 1

    Unload the gun. Eject the clip and work the slide to make sure that all the ammunition is removed. Set the ammunition aside.

  2. 2

    Press the disassembly switch on the right side of the gun as it's pointed away from you, roughly halfway along the weapon and just beneath the slide. On the left side, in the mirror-image location, is a horizontal switch. Rotate the switch so that it's facing down.

  3. 3

    Remove the slide from the gun. Turn the slide over and carefully remove the spring that holds the barrel in place.

  4. 4

    Remove the barrel. You must press the locking block, a small square with a switch near the end of the barrel opposite the shooting end. Once the locking block is clicked, you can slide the barrel out and set all the various parts aside on a piece of cloth or a flat surface. The gun is now field stripped and ready to be cleaned.

Tips and warnings

  • The coiled force of the spring can cause it to shoot out, so be careful and make sure that the spring is pointing away from you as you remove it.
