The Beretta 92 FS semi-automatic pistol operates on a short recoil, delayed blowback system, leading to faster cycle times, exceptional accuracy, and greater reliability. The chrome-lined barrel provides extreme corrosion resistance and ease of cleaning, and the deeply-recessed combat muzzle crown protects the rifling. Its open top slide virtually eliminates jamming and stove piping and allows one cartridge at a time to be loaded should the magazine be lost or damaged. The rear sight is designed to provide a front projection so that in an emergency, the user may retract the slide single-handedly by pushing the rear sight against the edge of a table or door. The 92 FS pistol is the most tested and trusted personal defense weapon in history, and this model is made in Italy.
