The Beretta 92X Performance was created to satisfy two requirements: speed and accuracy. Beretta's new 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 new Extreme-S trigger mechanism.
Technical choices, such as the Vertec steel frame and the Brigadier slide, take the weight of the 92X Performance to 47.61 oz, a key weight that increases stability and reduces muzzle rise when shooting. The oversized magazine and the front and rear checkering improve the pistol's handling. The raised frame profile near the magazine release enables the shooter's hand to sit as high as possible on the frame, 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.
To enable even faster cycle time, the Beretta 92X has a skeletonized hammer with a competition standard hammer spring. The new 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%. With the Extreme-S the 92X Performance has an “out of the box” trigger weight of 1.5 kg in single action and 3 kg in double action. The saw-toothed handling grooves on the front and rear of the Brigadier slide ensure maximum grip during slide movement, in all conditions. The steel spring recoil rod ensures maximum operational accuracy.
