M9A4: Beretta’s Fourth Generation M9

Beretta USA has announced the latest variant of its M9 Pistol series, the M9A4. It brings a new optics-cut slide, threaded barrel, and Vertec frame to the mix. Here’s some of what Beretta had to say about it: 

Beretta M9A4

Some Background

The M9A4 is a variant of the company’s Model 92 line, which dates to the 1970s. The M9 designator comes from the variant adopted by the U.S. Army in 1984. The M9 is now in its fourth generation as far as Beretta is concerned. This newest branch in the family tree is a full-sized gun with a red-dot optic compatible slide and dovetailed tritium night sights.

Inside the slim Vertec-series frame — with the same aggressively texturized grips as seen on the 92X — is an enhanced short reset Xtreme trigger system. Black surface controls are offset by a flat dark earth frame, barrel, and slide. The new Beretta M9A4 features an enhanced short reset Xtreme Trigger System with DLC Coated fire control, a short reset trigger, and a “G” style decock-only slide rather than the “F” style safety/decocker.

The red-dot ready M9A4 features integral slide cuts to allow for the mounting of optional optic plate styles. Customers can purchase one of five different plates that mount the most popular optics on the market today. Other features include a three-slot Picatinny accessory rail for lights and lasers.

One thought on “M9A4: Beretta’s Fourth Generation M9

  1. Beretta is crap and so is their new M9A4. I bought one of these in October and the machining of the slide was entirely unacceptable. Jagged edges everywhere. Looks like it was crafted with a hammer and a chisel instead of CNC.Trigger was sluggish to reset and the slide didn’t like to fully return to battery.

    Beretta refused to send out a new slide. Refused to commit to any resolution. Told me to send it in and they’d “look at it” with a 12+ week turnaround time.

    Beretta’s USA manufacturing is unacceptable. Their service is unacceptable. The M9A4 is unacceptable.
