Beretta Model 92 A1, 98 A1 and 96 A1 semi-automatic pistols (hereafter referred to as the “92 A1 series”) derive from the most tested and trusted personal defense weapon in history: the 92FS, which meets all military testing guidelines and has defined new standards for quality. The new Beretta 92 A1 series semiautomatic pistol incorporates new and unique benefits while maintaining all of the advanced performance and safety features of the 92 FS pistols.
An Exclusive Series
Beretta’s 92 A1 series semi-automatic pistols use a short recoil locked-breech system with falling block. When the pistol is fired, the pressure developed by combustion gas recoils the slide-barrel assembly. After a short run of slidebarrel assembly, the locking block falls and releases the slide letting it recoil while the barrel stops against frame. The slide, during its rearward movement, extracts and ejects the fired cartridge case, cocks the hammer and activates the recoil spring. Pushed by the recoil spring, the slide then moves forward feeding the next cartridge from the magazine into the chamber and causing barrel-slide locking. The slide is designed to stay open after the last cartridge has been fired and ejected.
