That a company can persist under the same family through such drastic political and economic change as that seen since 1500s Europe is nothing short of remarkable.

This review will be broken down into ten sections: -About the Firearm -Tech Specs -Internals and Function -Externals and Controls -Sights -Magazines -Range Report -Plus-Minus -Conclusion -Ammunition Tested About the Firearm I would be remiss in this review if I did not at least mention the fact that Beretta stands as the oldest active firearms manufacturer in the world.

Operated by the Beretta family since 1529, the company has been there for just about every firearms innovation dating back to the Renaissance.

It is my understanding that the M9 now ships in a plastic case.

Tech Specs Internals and Function The locked breech of the M9 is certainly a unique design that is almost exclusively used by Beretta in contemporary handguns.

At the height of my foray into the hobby my collection probably numbered at around 12 pieces.

Toward the end of my involvement, ultra-realistic gas blowback guns were my favorites as they not only offered realistic magazine capacities, but also featured semi-realistic blowback operation that generated noticeable recoil.

However, both the M9 and M9A1 remained full-sized guns.

Just as there is a compact version of the Officer’s Model 1911, there is a now a compact variant of the M9A1—the new Beretta 92FS Compact.

As an incremental upgrade of the Beretta 92 series developed in the 1970s, the M9 utilizes a similar locked breech and open slide design to that found in the famous German P38 from World War II.

Such a design is purportedly more accurate than the Browning cam-style action popularized by the 1911, but we will wait until the Range Report to discuss that claim.

Beretta has been in the business of satisfying the demands of military and civilian firearms customers for almost 500 years.
