To call the Beretta Model 92 handgun an icon is a bit of an understatement, from its beginnings in 1976, to its starring roles on the silver screen, and its 32 years of service as the U.S. Army’s M9. Over the years, Beretta has sought to enhance and update the 92 design for the current market. The company's latest version is the new-for-2024 92GTS.

The basis of the 92GTS is classic Beretta 92, with an aluminum alloy frame with a square “combat” triggerguard and an open-topped steel slide. The frame is of the slimmer Vertec-style with a flat backstrap, and its dustcover has a machined-in Picatinny rail for mounting accessories. Featuring front and rear serrations, the slide incorporates Beretta’s MRDS system for mounting electronic optics.

The biggest update on the GTS is its frame-mounted G-type (decock only) decocking lever. Using Beretta’s new Twin Sear Technology, the lever allows users to easily place the handgun in "Safe" mode. The X-Treme S double-action trigger mechanism is improved with DLC coated components and a skeletonized hammer.

Initial models offered will be full-size, with 4.7” barrel and an 18-round magazine capacity (the 92 GTS can also be purchased supplied with 15-round or 10-round magazines). The 92GTS will be offered in two versions, with a standard version that has an all-black finish with polymer grips and an MSRP of $899 and a Launch Edition with a blackened slide and polished frame and wooden grips, with an MSRP of $1,199.
