The M9A1 is an evolution of the legendary Beretta M9 military semi-auto pistol, developed with the advice of several law-enforcement and military agencies around the world. The M9A1 Compact Inox is a smaller and lighter variation that features an attractive and super-resistant stainless steel Inox finish. Compared to its full-size counterpart, the M9A1 Compact Inox is a full ¾" shorter and 2.3 oz. lighter, making it even more comfortable for all-day carry. The magazine well is beveled, for lightning-quick tactical mag changes without taking your eyes off the target. The combat trigger guard facilitates the use of the handgun while wearing gloves, as well as an ideal and secure placement of the off-hand. The front and backstrap are checkered to ensure a positive and consistent grip. An integral Picatinny rail enables the easy mounting of tactical accessories without any gunsmithing or modification to the pistol.
