Extra-Durable Pistol and Magazines


Soft-Shooting, Accurate and Easy to Maintain

Packed with Features


From the jungle heat of Panama to the sandstorms of Iraq, the men and women of the United States Armed Forces have counted on the Beretta M9 pistol for over two decades of distinguished service and reliability.
The Beretta M9A1 evolved from the base design of the battle tested and battle proven M9 pistol, with input from military and law enforcement agencies throughout the world. Developed to meet the demanding requirements of the United States Marine Corps the M9A1 incorporates the established reliability and performance of the M9 with added features needed for the ever-changing missions of peacekeeping forces.



The frame of the M9A1 has a MIL-SPEC-1913 (Picatinny) rail for rapid attachment of tactical lights and laser aiming devices. The radical checkering of the front and back straps ensures a firm grip in both wet or dry shooting conditions. The magazine well has an aggressive bevel to facilitate fast tactical reloads in combat situation. The 3-dot sights allow for quick acquisition of the target. The non-reflective black matte of Beretta’s proprietary Bruniton finish provides superior corrosion resistance. The chrome lined barrel has a deeply recessed combat muzzle crown that protects the rifling.
The newest development for the M9A1 is the specially designed, sand resistant, PVD-coated magazine. The PVD coating reduces friction while the design of the tube reduces the damaging effect of sand allowing for excellent reliability and function of the M9A1 in desert or other extreme conditions.




1. Open slide design. Open top slide virtually eliminates jamming and stovepiping. Allows the user to load and chamber one round at a time should the magazine be lost or damaged. The slide is completely interchangeable with all standard M9 and 92FS pistols.

2. No glare finish. Beretta’s exclusive Bruniton™ finish is a superior non-reflective corrosion resistant finish.

3. Automatic firing pin block. The front part of the firing pin is blocked from any forward movement until the trigger is pulled completely back. Even if the pistols falls and strikes the ground muzzle down, the firing pin will not strike the cartridge primer.

4. Ambidextrous manual safety. Easily accessible by the thumb of a right- or left-handed shooter, it is springloaded so it’s either positively “on” or positively “off.” The safety lever on the slide also functions as the pistol’s decocking lever. When pushed down, the rear part of the firing pin (striker) is rotated out of alignment with the front part of the firing pin.

5. Radical checkering of the front and back straps. The radical checkering pattern of the front and back straps, ensure a firm grip in wet and dry shooting conditions.

6. Magazine well. Aggressive bevel facilitates faster tactical reloads.

7. Reversible magazine button. The magazine button is reversible for right- or left-handed shooters.

8. MIL-SPEC-1913 (Picatinny) rail. The integrated rail allows rapid attachment of tactical lights and laser aiming devices.

9. PVD coated magazine: Beretta’s newly developed PVD coated 15-round magazine is sand resistant and improves reliability and function of the firearm in desert and other extreme conditions.
