Welcome

 93R nice dream !

Automatic pistol
for single shot fire
or in controlled
bursts of three rounds.

The Beretta pistol Model 93R is derived from the Model 92.
It is not just a semi automatic pistol, nor a sub machinegun... it is a new species of weapon in a class by it self !
Designed expressly for special purpose deployment, it offers enormous fire power coupled with the faculty of firing single shots in semi automatic repetition as well as three shot bursts, at the shooter's choice. Moreover, it can be carried on the person like any hand gun, even holstered or concealed.

The Beretta pistol Model 93R has also the following characteristics:
• staggered magazine (holds 20 rounds) which almost doubles the capacity of fire
• chamber loaded indicator (it’ is possible to check visually and, at night, to touch, whether there is a round in the chamber without having to retract the
slide)
• disassembling device extremely quick and simple.

 

The Beretta pistol Modei 93R is designed for singie shot fire or, at wili, in controlied bursts of three rounds. Selection of the desired mode is made by a thumb lever, and the three round burst limit is automatically governed by a mechanism located under the right grip. The fire selector (B see photo) is located on the top left side of the weapon; by positioning the selector on the white dot (C), the pistoi is made to fire in single shot. Reloading of the next round is automatic. When the selector is flicked to the three white dots (D), the pistol is ready to operate in controiled bursts of three rounds. Upon the trigger being pulled, the Modei 93R wili fire one burst of three rounds. To fire the next burst it is sufficient to release the trigger and to puli it again; individuai threeround bursts may thus be fired until the magazine is empty: six, pius one burst of two shots.

For burst-firing, the pistol should be held securely, and the trigger must be pulled firmly and long, otherwise incomplete bursts of one or two shots may result. Successive bursts will in any case be of 3 rounds, until magazine is empty. A well trained shooter will be able to fire several bursts in quick succession. The pistol is equipped with a folding fore grip (H) for better control during burst fire. When the pistol is combat ready, the grip should be lowered and held with the left hand, with the thumb inserted in the front part of the trigger guard. When not in use, the fore grip can be folded along the frame to make re holstering easier.
For accurate shooting at medium range, the pistol can be fitted with a special metal folding stock that can be attached to grip. Two pins in the front part of the metal stock mate with two holes (M and N) located on the frame. After inserting the pins in these holes, the latch (E) must be pushed into its seat in the rear part of the grip. The folding stock will then be firmly fixed to the weapon. To remove the folding stock, push back the slide (K). The latch will go back and the pins can be removed. The slide (L) disengages the central hinge of the stock, which allows folding.

The manual safety (A) is co axial with the selector but works completely independent from it. When the safety lever is turned up, a red dot shows clearly; the pistol is ready to fire. When the lever is lowered it covers the red dot, and the safety is engaged.

Advanced repair stripping should be carried out by a trained armourer.
