the jungle heat of Panama to the sandstorms of Iraq, the men
and women of the United States Armed Forces have counted on
the Beretta M9 pistol for over two decades of distinguished
service and reliability.
The frame of the M9A1 has a MIL-SPEC-1913 (Picatinny) rail for rapid attachment of tactical lights and laser aiming devices. The radical checkering of the front and back straps ensures a firm grip in both wet or dry shooting conditions. The magazine well has an aggressive bevel to facilitate fast tactical reloads in combat situation. The 3-dot sights allow for quick acquisition of the target. The non-reflective black matte of Beretta’s proprietary Bruniton finish provides superior corrosion resistance. The chrome lined barrel has a deeply recessed combat muzzle crown that protects the rifling.
The newest development for the M9A1 is the specially designed, sand resistant, PVD-coated magazine. The PVD coating reduces friction while the design of the tube reduces the damaging effect of sand allowing for excellent reliability and function of the M9A1 in desert or other extreme conditions.
