SHOT Show 2020 – Beretta's 92X line of pistols is so much more than a shiny white practical shooting model: the 92X Full Size, Centurion and Compact models offer all the improvements of the 92X Performance pistol in three specialized platforms for personal defense, duty, or tactical applications
The Beretta 92X line of pistols takes the proven reliability of the venerable M9 Family to the next level. Incorporating new universal ergonomic features, Combat Sights, enhanced fire control, and an extended magazine release result in an improved pistol that aims for top performance ideal for competitive dynamic shooting as well as for tactical, duty, or defensive purposes.
The Beretta 92X pistols come with a Vertec-style vertical grip, enabling smaller-handed shooters to find a more natural grip, while a new rigid wraparound polymer grips also allows for proper fitment for large hands. The enhanced metal frame checkering adds to the 92X family's user interface, arguably the most advanced ever on a 92-series pistol.
One of the most salient benefits of the 92X line of pistols is the universal slide design, which is easily convertible from FS to G mode and features a Vertec configuration dovetail on all sizes. This means that the 92X's safety lever can be used in a safety-decocker mode (FS) or it can be converted to perform a decocker-only (G) function. More versatility is also offered in the form of a removable front sight. In addition, a 2-slot Picatinny rail machined right on the Vertec steel frame allows the use of all sorts of tactical accessories.
The Beretta 92X pistols line comprises three variants: the 92X Full-Size, the 92X Centurion and the 92X Compact, all available only in 9mm Luger so far; 10-, 13-, 15- and 17-rounds double-stack metal magazines are available. The 92X Compact is also available in a standard frame version, without a Picatinny accessory rail.
