You can find full-size, Beretta 92-style pistols in numerous configurations.

If imitation truly is the sincerest form of flattery, certain pistols have received high-praise indeed. The Colt 1911-style pistol, for instance, remains wildly popular more than 100 years after its birth with more than 50 manufacturers producing hundreds of different 1911-style pistols. At least 11 manufacturers have produced CZ 75-style pistols in just the past five years or so.

Beretta’s 92-style pistol belongs to this club. In recent years, at least five manufacturers have produced 92-style pistols in roughly 33 different models ranging from Beretta-produced originals to outright clones to compacts to high-end, limited-edition collector guns. Other manufacturers have built 92-style pistols in the more distant past.

This article pulls together info on the 21 full-size 92-style pistols in production within the past five years or so. This list excludes any mid-size, compact and extended-length guns; generally speaking, that means only guns measuring approximately 8.25″-8.7″ long made it in.

Each pistol’s listing is an excerpt from its main info page, which contains a full description, specs, more photos, pricing info and sometimes links to external articles and reviews. To go to that page, click on the gun’s name or photo. To see all the 92-style pistols produced by one of the companies below, visit its category page on our site. Continue reading

You can find full-size, CZ 75-style pistols in numerous configurations.

The CZ 75 is probably the second-most copied and/or sourced handgun in history behind only the Colt 1911 pistol. At least 11 manufacturers have produced CZ 75-style pistols in the past five years or so, in roughly 60 different models ranging from CZ-produced originals to outright clones to compacts built on polymer frames. And many more manufacturers have built CZ 75-style pistols in the more distant past.

This article pulls together info on the 40 full-size CZ 75-style pistols in production within the past five years or so. This list excludes any mid-size, compact, subcompact and extended-length guns; generally speaking, that means only guns measuring approximately 8.0″-8.5″ long made it in (although technically the CZ 75 Shadow series includes a long-slide version).

Each pistol’s listing is an excerpt from its main-info page, which contains a full description, specs, more photos, pricing info and sometimes links to external articles and reviews. To go to that page, click on the gun’s name or photo. To see all the CZ 75-style pistols produced by one of the companies below, visit its category page on our site. Continue reading
