Beretta Launches 92X Pistol

Beretta Launches 92X Pistol

Beretta has launched the 92X as the latest addition to the 90-series pistol platform. Coming in Full Size, Centurion (mid-size) and Compact configurations, the 92X family of guns features the Vertec-profile frame; wraparound or flat stock panels included. All three sizes come with dovetailed front sights boasting a high-visibility orange dot, a black serrated rear sight, and a reduced-power D-Hammer Spring to help maintain sight picture throughout the trigger-pull process. Despite the newly rounded trigger guard, the 92X shares the same overall profile as its predecessors, and thus will fit any holster designed for a previous, similarly dimensioned 90-series variant (unless it is a holster molded specifically to the trigger guard). Each pistol ships with three magazines (17- or 15-round versions for the Full Size and Centurion; 13-round variants for the Compact; and 10-round magazines available for all three); a beveled magazine well and extended magazine release expedite the reloading process. A stretch of M1913-compatible Picatinny rail provides for the attachment of accessories, though the Compact is available with a standard dust cover for ease of carry. Finally, the universal slide design can be converted between safety-decocker (FS) and decocker-only (G), depending on personal preference. The 92X Full Size is currently available, while the Centurion and Compact models are expected to ship late summer/early fall of 2019. The pistols will retail at a price of $899 for railed models, and $800 for the non-rail Compacts. For more information, please visit beretta.com.
