Product Description
beretta The Model 96A1 represents Beretta's latest evolution of the world famous 92FS pistol, the most tested and trusted personal defense weapon in history. Combining the best elements of the 92FS and the 90-Two, these pistols feature a removable front sight that allows the user to easily replace a damaged sight or replace it with an accessory sight. The frame has an integral MIL-STD-1913 rail for rapid attachment of tactical lights and laser aiming devices. The single-piece captive recoil spring assembly simplifies the assembly and disassembly process and minimizes the possibility of spring loss. An internal recoil buffer increases service life by reducing stress on the receiver created by the more powerful .40 S&W caliber ammunition. The trigger guard is rounded to conform with current pistol gripping practices. Three 12-round magazines are included.

    Comments about Beretta Model 96A1 Handgun:

    Feels great in the hand. Feels like a quality made weapon. Shoots like a quality made weapon. No cheap plastic on the gun. The frame and slide are made of metal not plastic. Easy to break down and clean. I would recommend this hand gun for a first time user because it is simple to use and maintain. The 40 calibur has plenty of stopping power if needed. While it is heaver than the guns with a lot of plastic in them it is not so heavy that it makes it uncomfortable to handle. And it is a big hand gun.

        Bought the Berretta because it was the 40 cal. I preferred over all those out there. Berretta is a quality firearm. I carried one in the military. It's a proven dependable firearm.If you want a firearm that is recognized in any group of semi- auto owners, Berretta is one of the " top four " semi- auto's you want to add to your personal " for defense/ personal protection ".

          I originally wanted to get the 92fs inox and I am so glad I didn't and got the 40 cal. It is easy to clean, take a part and accurate. Went to the range today and had perfect pairings at 25ft away. Went through 125 rounds with no issues. My 12 year old was also able to shoot it and maintain the recoil. Don't hesitate to buy this one. You will not regret it.

            Comments about Beretta Model 96A1 Handgun:

            Purchased this weapon recently. Ran a couple of hundred rounds through it at the range. Great weapon, accurate, easy recoil for a 40 SW, totally enjoyed it.
            It fits into the Galco Shoulder holster I have for my Beretta 92 FS INOX. I highly recommend this weapon if you want to shift over from a 9mm to a 40 sw cal. The spring rod is composite, but my expensive Beretta 92 FS INOX also came with a similar rod (which I replaced). The replacement rod aren't out yet (new product), but you can have one made.

            • Q:

              Can the mag release button be changed over the right side for 'left-handed' users ? Mod. 96A1. I thought that I saw a mod. 96 inox in SS with a 4" barrel in 40 S&W that may have this feature. Is this accurate ?
