M9 30th Anniversary Exclusive
Celebrating 30 years at the side of the US Military, Beretta is now offering a collector’s edition M9 30th Anniversary Exclusive limited-edition pistol.
This fully-functional M9 is inscribed in gold inlay on the left side of the slide with the wording “30 Years of Service,” plus the American flag flying at the front. On the right side of the slide, it features “30 Years of service,” while just behind the breech face, a Beretta Trident logo is also inscribed in gold inlay. The wording “1 of 30” is also featured, highlighting the highly-limited availability of this collector’s pistol. The grips are premium wood and contain the 30th Anniversary Exclusive gold medallion. The whole comes with a velvet-lined premium wood box with a Beretta-logo plaque, a gold limited-edition coin and a certificate of authenticity featuring the pistol’s serial number. In all, this pistol offers an opportunity to own a piece of history as well as a highly-collectible, one-of-a-kind model.
Built to Exacting US Military Standards
When we talk US military standards, we talk hard numbers, not opinions. The M9 has been put through impossibly-rigorous durability and reliability tests that greatly exceed any kind of real-life situation--and it has passed them all with flying colors. For instance, it will keep functioning in temperatures as low as -40 F and as high as +140 F, and it consistently fires over 35,000 rounds of commercial ammunition before a failure. It will keep functioning reliably even after being buried in the sand or snow, or being repeatedly dropped on hard surfaces like asphalt or concrete. Beretta’s engineering experience and the quality of the steels used enable this kind of reliability, on which America’s servicemen and women depend every day.
Fully Functional, Super-Accurate
Another official test that the M9 had to pass was at the firing range. Even here, the demands of the US military far exceed most conditions in which a handgun is used--and even here, the M9 delivers. As per government testing guidelines, this pistol is capable of firing 10-shot groups of 3 inches or less at a distance of 50 meters (approximately 55 yards), with consistency and reliability. With other brands and models of premium pistols, this kind of accuracy may only be attained with extensive (and expensive) modifications and customization with after-market parts, while the M9 offers it right out of the box.
Tactical Features that Speak for Themselves
The Limited collector’s model offers the tactical features that have made the M9 equally safe, easy to use and dependable in the holster of military personnel as well as for home or personal defense. Its reversible magazine release enables the use of either hand for tactical magazine changes, while its ambidextrous safety-decocker makes the pistol flexible for right- or left-handed persons or for shooters trying out different gripping or shooting styles. After shooting, a tool-free disassembly latch makes it simple and quick to take the pistol apart for cleaning. These and countless other useful features have made the M9 the choice of the US military, as well as individuals wanting the absolute best for sport or self-protection.
