The new Beretta 92X Performance Defensive has been custom built to take your competition performance to the next level. Specifically designed for those consumers who participate in IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association) competitions, the 92X Performance Defensive maintains the same ergonomic design and controls as the popular 92X Performance Production platform with new enhanced features such as a lightened steel frame and slide, a red-dot optic ready slide, and aggressively textured 92X-style thin grips for instinctive control.

Compliant with the 3 most shot IDPA Divisions (SSP, ESP, CO), the 92X Performance Defensive provides an uncompromising performance aimed at earning you a spot at the top of the podium with power, speed, and accuracy.

Amazing Pistol - Requires what all Berettas Require

Amazing pistol… Finally Beretta creates all steel pistol with options for modern competition! Nonetheless we all have to remember it's a DA/SA Beretta! As a competition shooter I know whether it's a CZ, Glock, Springfield, Sig, 1911, S&W… Doesn't matter need to go through the trigger replace some parts and springs get it the way I want it and optimize it… Some trial and error... the castrated man bitches that complain about this in the other reviews either don't know how to do some simple smithing or just too lazy to do their own research or figure it out… just like in racing there's nothing Stock about a stock car you can't just buy a gun and think it's perfect and go racing gotta work on it ... Highly recommend Langdon trigger bar and stock Beretta metal trigger…

Poor Trigger, lots of creep.

I just received one of these, and it has a very poor trigger, along with poor machining. Beretta has been unresponsive so far.
