An Upgraded Beretta 92 Built for Competition-Level Performance
Though replaced by the M17 in the U.S. military's inventory, the Beretta 92/M9 platform is still a popular option with today's shooters, and Beretta is upping the ante with a competition-ready variant in the form of the company's 92X Performance.
Like the original Model 92, the Beretta 92X Performance features a DA/SA operating system and feeds from standard magazines. However, this particular model has been enhanced with a Brigadier-style slide and is constructed on an all-steel frame to give the gun more weight to absorb recoil. A skeletonized hammer and competition hammer spring also provide faster cycling time, so shooters can get shots off faster.
- Barrel length: 4.9 inches
- Overall length: 8.7 inches
- Weight: 2.98 pounds
- Ships with two 15-round magazines
Another feature found in the Beretta 92X Performance include the company's Extreme S trigger mechanism, which prevents the gun from discharging in a fall but also decreases trigger-reset distance up to 40 percent.
