The M9 Beretta is a 9mm pistol that replaced the Colt 1911 as the standard sidearm within the US Military.
The M9 is the US Military designation for the Beretta 92FS pistol. This semi-automatic weapon features a 15-round magazine. The M9 is carried by many US Special Operations Forces (SOF) including the Rangers, Special Forces, AFSOC Combat Controllers and MARSOC Marines. Depending on preference / requirements, an operator may instead choose to carry a Sig Sauer P226, P228 or a Glock 17 / 19.
An upgraded variant, the M9A1, features a Picatinny accessories rail, beveled magazine well and PVD-coated magazines.
