From the jungle heat of Panama to the sandstorms of Iraq, the men and women of the U. S. Armed Forces have counted on the Beretta M9 pistol for over two decades of distinguished service and reliability. The M9 is a short recoil, semi-automatic, single-action/double-action pistol with a reversible magazine release button that can be positioned for either right- or left-handed shooters. Each M9 has a hard-chromed barrel bore to protect it from corrosion and to reduce wear. Bruniton coating on the slide provides better corrosion resistance than standard blueing. A firing pin block prevents the firing pin from moving without the trigger being pulled and a firing pin striker rotates when the safety lever is engaged preventing the firing pin from being hit even if the hammer falls. The 25th Anniversary M9 is a limited edition pistol that features rounded walnut grips with embedded commemorative medallions. This pistol includes two 15-round magazines, an extra set of synthetic grip panels, and the original factory hard case. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
