Beretta USA has announced the new M9A4, the latest model in the M9 series of pistols. As such, the M9A4 boasts new features such as a red-dot ready slide, an enhanced short reset Xtreme Trigger System, along with a higher capacity magazine.
Says Beretta: "Built to exceed the standards of even the most demanding tactical shooters, the M9A4 blends the proven design of the M9 with modern features such as 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."
The red-dot ready M9A4 includes integral slide cuts to allow for the mounting of different optic plate styles. Beretta will provide a free optic plate when buyers register their purchased firearms, or they can purchase an aftermarket one. Shipping with blanking covers, there are five different plates available for the M9A4 to mount the most popular optics.
The M9A4 also sports a removable front sight for shooters with distinct preferences in terms of sight picture. In addition, a variety of accessory options are possible thanks to the Picatinny rail located in front of the trigger guard.
