Like the standard 92FS, the 92FS Brigadier is a double/single-action semi-auto pistol that employs an open-slide, short-recoil delayed locking-block system, which yields a faster cycle time and delivers exceptional accuracy and reliability. In particular, the open-slide design practically eliminates "stove-piping" and helps flawless cycling and feeding even after thousands and thousands of rounds. This pistol offers a variety of tactical features that make it equally safe, easy to use, and dependable in the holster of military personnel as well as for home or personal defense. Its reversible magazine release lets you use either hand for tactical magazine changes, while its ambidextrous safety-decocker makes it flexible for right- or left-handed persons or for shooters trying out different gripping or shooting styles. Its Bruniton or Inox finishes are highly resistant to sweat and corrosion. After shooting, a tool-free disassembly latch makes it a snap to take the pistol apart for cleaning.
