The Beretta 92X Performance 9mm 4.9in Nistan Pistol (J92XR20) was created to satisfy two requirements: Speed and accuracy. Beretta's competition pistol is uncompromising and aims for top performance, offering the world of competitive dynamic shooting one of the most reliable and world-renowned locking systems, together with a steel frame, a heavier Brigadier slide and the Extreme-S trigger mechanism.
Technical choices, such as the Vertec steel frame and the Brigadier slide, take the weight of the 92X Performance to 1350 g, a key weight which increases the pistol's stability and reduces muzzle rise when shooting. The oversized magazine and the rear chequering, which can also be found on the front of the frame, improve the pistol's handling as well as its grip.
The raised frame profile near the magazine release enables the shooter's hand to sit as high as possible on the hilt, which itself is also oversized to enable a deeper hold. The magazine release is oversized and reversible and an adjustable version is available on the aftermarket. Safety on the frame is ambidextrous and is available in three different size profiles, making it adaptable to various hand types and different IPSC divisions.
To enable even faster cycle time, the 92X has a skeletonized hammer with a competition standard hammer spring. The Extreme-S trigger mechanism keeps the striker automatic safety latch active ensuring the safety of the pistol in case it falls but decreases trigger reset by up to 40%.
The "Match" take down lever ensures a precise reference point for the second hand. The "hold open" lever profile is lowered and is of the "stealth lever" type, so as not to interfere with the finger resting on the safety lever during the out of ammunition warning.
The 92X has an appealing and refined dual tone look, obtained using a Nistan finish to treat the frame surface and slide with the contrast provided by the black burnished barrel.
The pistol comes with two 15-cartridge magazines with an oversized rubber pad to give the dominant hand extra grip and to protect the magazine during quick change operations.
