SHOT Show 2010: Beretta Upgrades 92FS Pistols

January 20, 2010  | 


Beretta brought new Model 92A1 and 96A1 pistols to SHOT Show 2010, as an extension of its 92FS pistol line.

"2010 marks the 25th anniversary of the introduction of the remarkable 92FS," according to Gary Ramey, Bererra USA's vice president of sales and marketing. "We will continue to invest significant resources to ensure Beretta is always leading the industry and providing our customers with exceptional products."

Both models feature high-capacity magazines — 17 rounds in 9mm in the 92A1 and 12 rounds in 40 S&W in the 96A1 — that are interchangeable with other 92-family magazines. An internal recoil buffer increases service life by reducing stress on the receiver created by the more powerful .40 S&W caliber ammunition. Each pistol includes three magazines.

The frames of the new pistols have a MIL-STD-1913 rail for rapid attachment of tactical lights and laser aiming devices. A removable front sight allows the user to easily replace a damaged sight or replace it with an accessory sight.

Also found on these two models is a captive-recoil spring assembly that "simplifies the assembly and disassembly process and minimizes the possibility of spring loss," according to the company. The rounded trigger guard reflects updated styling to conform with current pistol gripping practices.
