General Information[edit | edit source]
The Beretta M9A1 started out as the Beretta M9, which was designed by the Italian company Beretta in the 1980. It was in service to the US Army in 1990 after beating out its competing pistols from other arms companies in a series of close competitions to replace the Colt M1911 pistol. The M9 can survive harsh temperatures and is easy to use. The M9 incorporates many safeties, easily-interchangeable parts, iron sights, hard-chromed barrel bore, and an enlarged hammer pin.
Beretta later updated the M9 in 2006 by giving it a 1-slot Picatinny rail for attachments, more aggressive front and backstrap checkering, and a new coat for magazines to withstand desert conditions. The new updated version of the M9 is named the M9A1. The M9A1 uses 15-round detachable box magazines. The pistol uses 9x19mm Parabellum cartridges.
