Beretta M9 - self-loading pistol for the cartridge 9x19 mm Parabellum, which is armed with all types of armed forces, arms and services of US troops. Created on the basis of the Italian pistol Beretta 92F. It is manufactured in the United States by a subsidiary of Beretta. From the 92F pistols manufactured in Italy, it is distinguished by a simplified and shorter production cycle, the automated production of a number of parts that are manufactured manually in Italy by craftsmen and a stamped inscription on the left side of the steel shutter casing "U.S. 9mm M9-P.BERRETTA "on the early models or" BERETTA U.S.A. CORP. ACKK. MD.-MADE IN USA "on samples of a later release.
