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 bluing. 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. This double-action handgun features fixed combat sights, a 2-position safety and decocking lever, and a 15-round magazine. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
