The 92X Performance was created to satisfy two requirements: Speed and accuracy. Beretta’s new competition pistol is uncompromising and aims for top performance, offering the world of competitive dynamic shooting one of the most reliable and world-renowned locking systems, together with a steel frame, a heavier Brigadier slide and the new Extreme-S trigger mechanism.
The Vertec steel frame and the Brigadier slide, take the weight of the 92X Performance to 1350 g, increasing the pistol’s stability and reducing muzzle rise when shooting. The oversized magazine well and the rear chequering, which can also be found on the front of the frame, improve the pistol’s handling as well as its grip. The raised frame profile near the magazine release enables the shooter’s hand to sit as high as possible on the hilt, which is oversized to enable a deeper hold.
The new Extreme-S trigger mechanism keeps the striker automatic safety latch active ensuring the safety of the pistol in case it falls but decreases trigger reset by up to 40%.
To enable even faster cycle time, the 92X has a skeletonized hammer with a competition standard hammer spring. The “Match” take down lever ensures a precise reference point for the second hand. The “hold open” lever profile is lowered and is of the “stealth lever” type, so as not to interfere with the finger resting on the safety lever during the out of ammunition warning.
The 92X Performance offers the possibility to regulate the pre-travel and extra travel via two screws located inside the frame, next to the upper section of the magazine well. It has an appealing and refined dual tone look, obtained using a Nistan finish to treat the frame surface and slide with the contrast provided by the black burnished barrel.
