We have been shooting and carrying one of Beretta’s newest versions of their iconic Model 92, the 92X, and have a few things to report.
What is the 92X?
Unveiled this year by the historic Italian gunmaker, the 92X series is an American-born descendant of the now-classic combat pistol that first debuted in the 1970s and is produced at their Gallatin, Tennessee plant. Announced in July in Full-Sized, a slightly shorter Centurion and handy Compact variants– the latter both with and without an accessory rail– the new handgun line is packed with features and upgrades not found in the more basic 92FS/M9 pistols while coming in at a price that is more affordable than the M9A3 and the semi-custom LTT/Wilson Combat 92G series guns.
