The Beretta M9A3 is the updated version of the original M9, the trusted semi-automatic handgun of the United States military for more than two decades. The M9A3 combines the durability and dependability of the M9 with the thinner vertical grip design of the Vertec. Despite the smaller grip, the M9A3 still accommodates a double-stack, high-capacity magazine and offers an oversized magazine release button. It has a slide design with the option to go from safety-decocker to decocker-only, as well as a built-in Picatinny rail for easy customization. Favored by military and law enforcement alike, the M9A3 is also a suitable choice for home and self-defense, concealed carry, and competition.
