Manufacturer’s Description

Beretta‘s M9A1 is a semiauto pistol built on an aluminum alloy frame and chambered in 9mm. It’s a descendant of Beretta’s 92FS pistol, called the M9 by the U.S. military.

Like those pistols, the M9A1 operates on a short recoil, delayed blowback system. These double-action/single-action pistols come with high-capacity steel magazines designed to drop-free when the magazine button is depressed, even when empty. Beretta says the M9A1 mags are sand resistant due to a PVD coating designed to reduce friction and a tube designed to reduce the possibility of sand accumulation within the round column.

Other new features include:

  • A Mil-Std 1913 picatinny rail;
  • a beveled magazine well; and
  • front- and back-strap checkering.

And like other 92-series pistols, the M9A1 features:

  • Chrome-lined barrels with a deeply recessed combat muzzle crown to protect the rifling;
  • an open slide design;
  • a disassembly latch;
  • a visible automatic firing pin block;
  • three-dot sights;
  • an external hammer;
  • a combat trigger guard;
  • a non-reflective, black, Bruniton finish;
  • a reversible magazine release;
  • an ambidextrous safety.
