Beretta USA is just announced the launch of the new M9A4 which is the newest model in the M9 series of pistols. The M9A4 blends the proven design of the M9 with additional modern features including a red-dot optic compatible slide and dovetailed tritium night sights for optimal sight options, an enhanced short reset Xtreme Trigger System, an 18-round magazine, and a Beretta Vertec frame with included aggressively textured Vertec-style thin grips that ensure a more natural fit for all shooters.
“After several years of feedback, research, and development, we are proud to bring the latest version of the M9 series pistol to the market and show the ultimate evolution of the venerable M9 series. We are excited to bring the M9A4 to market incorporating the latest advancements in 90 series pistols to date with a red-dot ready slide, an enhanced short reset Xtreme Trigger System, and a higher capacity magazine offering,” Erik Stern, Tactical and Pro Shop Product Manager, said.
Proudly built in the USA, the new M9A4 is designed to be ideal for any tactical situation, including home and personal defense, tactical competitions, and duty carry in any condition.
The red-dot ready M9A4 features integral slide cuts to allow for the mounting of optional optic plate styles. Consumers can receive a free optic plate from Beretta upon the registration of their purchased firearm or purchase an additional one aftermarket. Shipping with blanking covers, the end-user is able to purchase one of five different plates that allow for mounting of all of the most popular optic variants on the market today.
The M9A4 features an enhanced short reset Xtreme Trigger System with DLC Coated fire control and a short reset trigger and a G decock-only slide befitting the combat-oriented pistol that this new model is based upon.
With a Vertec-style vertical grip and aggressively texturized Vertec-style thin grips, the M9A4 allows for instinctive control and pointing highly prized by tactical shooters and makes for consistent and accurate target acquisition. The beveled magazine well allows for quick magazine changes to be performed easily with one hand regardless of lighting conditions.
The M9A4 also features a removable front sight for tactical shooters who have a distinct preference in terms of sight picture, material, or construction. In addition, a variety of accessory options are possible thanks to the built-in 3-slot Picatinny rail located in front of the trigger guard, which enables the easy attachment of a variety of tactical lights, laser devices, and more.
The M9A4 comes in 10 and 15-round magazine capacities and a new offering of an 18-round magazine for those end-users who desire a higher magazine capacity and for improved feeding.
