Beretta M9

Quick Overview

Throughout our nation’s storied military history, there have been numerous firearms issued to our servicemen and women. Among them was the M1 Garand, the Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR), the M16 and many more. Arguably the most notable however, was the M1911. Serving the United States Armed Forces as the standard-issue sidearm for close to 75 years, the M1911 was designed by John Browning and officially adopted in 1911. The M1911 is a semi-automatic pistol that utilizes a single-action, short recoil operation and was originally chambered in .45 ACP – though it is now chambered in several other calibers. It has enjoyed wild success among civilians, with compact variations being popular choices for concealed carry. Unfortunately, the late 1970s saw the creation of the Joint Service Small Arms Program, which was tasked with selecting a handgun chambered in 9x19mm Parabellum that would replace the M1911 and see issuance across all service branches of the United States Armed Forces. After serving in World War I, World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, the M1911 was officially replaced by the Beretta M9.


Keepshooting.com now proudly offers the official sidearm of the United States Armed Forces – the Beretta M9. The Beretta M9 is a semi-automatic pistol that features a single/double action, operates on a short recoil, delayed blowback system and is renowned for its remarkable accuracy and reliability. The barrel is chrome-lined to prevent corrosion and is chambered for 9x19mm Parabellum. The M9 also features an ambidextrous external thumb safety as well as several internal safeties, which include both a firing pin block and a rotating firing pin striker to prevent accidental discharges.  Included with each Beretta M9 is two 15 round staggered box magazines, which give the pistol a 15+1 capacity.


Arm yourself with the pistol deemed fit for service by the United States Armed Forces – the pistol that forced the M1911 into retirement. The Beretta M9 is available now for $636.40.

Details

The Beretta M9 was adopted by the United States Armed Forces in 1985 and officially entered service in 1990 after emerging victorious from a series of trials designed to test its suitability for the field. After being subjected to a battery of field tests that saw the pistol exposed to extreme temperatures, submerged in salt water, buried in various compositions and dropped repeatedly on concrete, the pistol beat out several models from top manufacturers, including: Colt, Fabrique Nationale, Heckler & Koch, Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson, Steyr and Walther. Another noteworthy aspect of the pistol is its outstanding mean rounds before failure, or MRBF, which is reportedly 35,000. This means that on average, the pistol can cycle 35,000 rounds before experiencing a jam. Seeing as how this is believed to exceed the expected service time of the pistol by over five times, you can understand why this firearm is noted for its reliability.  

Though the pistol is very highly praised, there were some criticisms made when it was introduced into service. Several soldiers expressed their concerns regarding stopping power with the 9mm full metal jacket, as hollow points and other expanding bullets are strictly prohibited from use in warfare per the Hague Convention of 1899.

Nevertheless, this is an excellent pistol for civilian use, especially in matters of self-defense as hollow points would be legal and increase the stopping power of the 9mm cartridge. Consider the Beretta M9 for:

- Collections

- Reenactments

- Sport shooting

- Match shooting

- Self-defense

- Much more…

Though the M1911 was replaced by the Beretta M9 as the official sidearm of the United States Armed Forces, it still remains in use by select units, including the Marine Corps Special Operations Command.

  1. One of the best semi auto handguns! review by Emello on 5/1/2015

    I bought one of these off of here a few years back and so far I have put over 1200 rounds through it and there was only 2 malfunctions and that was during the first 100 rounds I put through it. It could have been because it was shot right out of the box but either way it has been flawless since and I consider this to be one of the greatest semi automatic handgun's ever along with the great 1911 which has also fired flawlessly for me.

  2. I wish I could concealed carry this review by John on 10/30/2013

    After shooting with some military buddies at ranges, I found that they fell in love with the Beretta overseas. Although I think it's too large for my personal use, It's definitely the most comfortable 9mm I have ever shot. The recoil was so manageable I found no problem in shooting it one handed with minimal muzzle rise, which is quite different compared to smaller and lighter 9mm pistols I have shot.

    I am a 1911 guy. I was issued a Glock by my dept. But if you served any time overseas you used a Beretta. We had few issues with our while on deployment. Since I was in weapons platoon we had plenty of them around so I got to see them in action. We loved them for CQB.

    I much prefer 1911's and Glocks. However the Beretta is my third choice. Large magazine capacity and good sights. I don't care for the double action trigger but I can see why the US Gov would go with it. There are ton of holsters and accessories for it. When we were in Iraq every one wanted one. Enough said.
