Delivering on its promise to offer a commercial off the shelf upgrade to the venerable Beretta M9, and M9A1 pistols, Beretta is proud to announce that the
M9A3 pistol is now shipping to retailers nationwide. The M9A3 introduces major improvements to the M9 that will increase the operational effectiveness and capability of the weapon. The improvements include design and material enhancements resulting in increased modularity, reliability, durability, and ergonomics.  This package of improvements was submitted via an Engineering Change Proposal (ECP) in accordance with the terms of the current U.S. Military M9 contract.

“The M9A3 represents the next generation military handgun utilizing the best of the legacy M9 combined with proven commercial off the shelf modifications that increase performance and durability” stated Gabriele de Plano, Vice President of Military Marketing and Sales for Beretta USA. Mr. de Plano added, “After listening closely to the needs of U.S. Army and other Service small arms representatives, we determined the M9, much like its counterpart legacy weapon systems (M4, M16, M240, etc.), was capable of being upgraded through material and design changes.”

The M9A3 features a thin grip with an optional removable, modular wrap-around grip, MIL-STD-1913 accessory rail, removable front and rear tritium sights, extended and threaded barrel for suppressor use, three 17-round sand resistant magazines, and numerous improved small components to increase durability and ergonomics, all in an earth tone finish for reduced visual signature.

Made in the U.S. since 1987, the M9 has been the sidearm of the U.S. Armed Forces for nearly 30 years; serving with U.S. service men and women in training and combat operations throughout the world. The M9A3 is designed for the next 30 years—delivering twenty-first century capability and features while increasing usability and reliability.
