Beretta 92A1: Legendary 92 Reliability with Ultra-Modern Tactical Features
The "A1" class is a specialized tactical branch of the most tested and trusted military and personal defense weapon in history: the 92FS.
We started with the super-reliable 92, keeping the engineering characteristics that make it so accurate, safe and dependable; then, we added some features prized by today’s most demanding tactical shooters as well as by those wanting the absolute best for home defense or personal protection. The result is the 92A1, a pistol that is as reliable for its intended use as it is safe and user-friendly even for the novice.
Easy Accessorization and Maintenance
The most noticeable difference between the classic 92FS and the 92A1 is that this comes with an integral accessory rail situated in front of the trigger guard. The rail makes it easy to attach a variety of tactical accessories, including lighting systems and laser aiming devices. Also, the 92A1 has a removable front sight, meaning that you can exchange it in a matter of minutes without any gunsmithing or alteration to the pistol. Maintenance is easy thanks to the tool-free disassembly latch as well as the captive recoil-spring unit.
Impressive Firepower, Extra-Durable Magazines
Another feature that will impress you about the 92A1 is the type of magazine it comes with. This pistol comes with three 17-round magazines designed to deliver remarkable firepower out of the box while being absolutely durable and corrosion resistant. Furthermore, the magazines on the 92A1 feature a “dirt rail” along their length, which helps collect dust and grit out of the magazine while keeping cartridges clear of the magazine walls. The result: enhanced feeding reliability and super-easy magazine maintenance.
Absolutely Reliable, Designed to Last
The base design of the 92A1 is the 92FS or M9, the pistol that has served the US military admirably throughout its campaigns in the world’s toughest environments. But even in this respect, Beretta never rests on its laurels. This pistol incorporates an innovative internal frame buffer that greatly reduces component stress under firing (yes, even with hot +P ammo), making it even more durable and smooth-shooting. The best of both worlds, the 92A1 offers discriminating shooters the classic overall look and feel of the 92 (including the more traditional rounded trigger-guard) with today’s most advanced tactical features. This pistol is also available in .40 S&W as the 96A1 and in 9x21mm as the 98A1.

I always thought the 92FS was a great looking gun but never got around to shooting one. It's easy to get caught up in the "latest and greatest". Lately though, my interest was piqued by this gun so I rented one (92A1) at the range today. Put 70 rounds through it and fell in love. The lack of recoil made it feel like firing a 22 Pistol. The difference between it and my polymer pistols is tremendous. Consequently, my groupings were instantly better even though this was the first time I fired it. I left the range and drove an hour and a half to the closest dealer that had one (92A1) in stock and bought it on the spot. It's too big for me to carry but it has vaulted to the top of my home defense choices and will be in the nightstand tonight. Great job Beretta!!!!

Love my 92A1. It's a natural shooter and everyone that tries it remarks how accurate they can shoot it. It's a classic made even better after five years it has never experienced a malfunction even with the cheapest ammo. My favorite handgun, looks great and a real shooter.
