Beretta M9 Magazines

About the Beretta M9
The Beretta® M9 is the government-issued version of the famed Beretta 92 pistol, built around a unique open-slide, SA/DA design. Regarded as one of the most reliable double-stack semi-auto pistols in the world, the Beretta M9 was in service from 1985 until it was replaced by the Sig Sauer® M17/M18 in 2017/2018 respectively. The M9 is a short recoil, semi-auto pistol, featuring a full-steel alloy frame and open-top slide, engineered to withstand heavy use and abuse in dusty, wet, sandy, and other corrosive environments. Further, the M9 utilizes a durable 15-round staggered magazine with a reversible magazine release for dependable operation with both right- and left-handed shooters.

The M9 also features multiple internal safeties, including a firing pin block that prevents the firing pin from moving or striking cartridge primers without the trigger being pulled, and a firing pin striker, engineered to rotate and disengage when the safety lever is engaged to prevent the firing pin from making contact with primers, even if the hammer falls, for safe, confident carry with a round in the chamber for quick deployment and enhanced reliability. The M9 also has an ambidextrous external safety lever, allowing both left and right-handed users to engage or disengage the safety mechanism.

Though the Beretta M9 is no longer in American military service, it remains a favorite among collectors, competitive shooters, home defense shooters, law enforcement agencies, informal target shooters, and even some military forces around the globe.

What Does “SA/DA” Mean and Why Does It Matter?

Single-action/Double-action pistols like the Beretta 92 allow shooters to fire the pistol by either pulling the hammer back with their thumb or racking the slide before pulling the trigger (single-action), or by simply pulling the trigger and forcing the hammer to pull itself back prior to striking the firing pin (double-action). The single-action stage requires the hammer to be cocked (manually or mechanically) before firing, and offers a light, crisp pull, ensuring accurate shot placement and improved handling. A double-action pull, on the other hand, is much heavier and requires an intentional pull. With single-action/double-action pistols, the first trigger pull will be a double-action pull and much heavier. As the slide travels rearward, it will automatically cock the hammer, allowing you to fire with a light and crisp single-action pull with every shot thereafter, making the single-action/double-action system one of the most reliable and safest hammer-fired pistol designs in the world.

What’s the Standard Magazine Capacity of the Beretta M9 Pistol?
The standard capacity of Beretta M9 magazines is 15 rounds. However, there is a multitude of factory and aftermarket California-compliant magazines available. Plus, with the fame and widespread ownership of Beretta pistols, there are tons of aftermarket high-capacity magazines available, including so-called “high-capacity” magazines available from reputable manufacturers such as ProMag®, Mec-Gar®, and more.
