The Beretta 92A1 is an upgraded tactical version of the pervasive and legendary Beretta 92FS. It incorporates all the best features of the successful 92FS and adds features prized by today’s most demanding tactical shooters.
The Beretta 92FS has been setting the standard for top military and police tactical pistols for over a quarter century. Designated the M9 by the US military and current sidearm in service for the US military and countless law enforcement agencies, the 92FS is as accurate, reliable, and durable as semi-automatic handguns come.
The Beretta 92FS is a DA/SA pistol that employs an open-slide, short-recoil delayed locking-block system, which yields a faster cycle time and delivers exceptional accuracy and reliability. The open-slide design helps to virtually eliminate stove-piping and aids in flawless and reliable cycling, even in extreme conditions. Beretta employs several levels of safeties into the 92FS. A visible and tactile automatic firing pin block prevents any forward movement of the firing pin until the trigger is pulled straight back. A positive safety/decocker is used to both drop the hammer safely and act as a trigger safety. A half-cock notch prevents discharge on an unintentional hammer drop.
The 92FS comes with a variety of features to promote usability and longevity of the firearm. The magazine release is reversible for left-handed operators and the decocker/safety lever come ambidextrous on the slide. Disassembly is made easy and tool-free with one simple take-down lever for field stripping. Each 92FS is built on a forged, aircraft-grade light aluminum frame and coated with Beretta’s exclusive Bruniton to provide a matte, no-glare finish and superior corrosion and wear resistance. The 92FS comes complete with a visual and tactile chamber indicator and checkering on the hammer, grip, and trigger guard. No detail was too small or overlooked in the development of one of the world’s most popular pistols.
The most obvious difference between the 92A1 and the 92FS is the integral Picatinny rail on the 92A1, allowing for attachments of lights and lasers on the pistol. The 92A1 also has a removable drift front sight that can be replaced or upgraded. The 92A1 incorporates an innovative internal frame buffer that is designed to greatly reduce component stress under firing, making it even more durable and smooth shooting than its predecessor. The 92A1 offers the classic, timeless look and feel of the Beretta 92FS with several enhancements.
