92X Performance Defensive

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 platform with new enhanced features such as a lightened steel frame, red dot optic compatible slide, and aggressively textured Vertec-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. 

Lightened Steel Frame

Decreased weight to meet IDPA regulations with the removal of the traditional Picatinny rail and reductions made on the internal design of the Brigadier slide and Vertec steel frame

Enhanced Control

Saw-toothed front and rear serrations on the slide and front and backstrap checkering improve the shooters’ handling and ensure maximum grip during slide manipulation in all conditions. 

Skeletonized Hammer

Skeletonized hammer combined with a competition standard hammer spring enables an even faster cycle time

Xtreme Trigger System

Fully adjustable trigger decreases trigger reset by up to 40% while maintaining Beretta’s renowned safety features
