Remembering How the Beretta M9 Became America’s SidearmBeretta M9 – America’s Sidearm

BerettaGallatin, TN-(Ammoland.com)- Beretta Defense Technologies (BDT) is pleased to announce that new M9 pistols tested at the Company’s manufacturing facility in Gallatin, Tennessee have continued the world-record reliability pace for the product. Beretta U.S.A. completed the fourteenth consecutive M9 Lot Acceptance Test (LAT) this month with an average of only one malfunction every 19,090 rounds. During this testing period 42 M9 pistols were fired 210,000 rounds, with resultant reliability almost 10 times better than the rate of reliability required by the U.S. Army in its current Modular Handgun System program.

Beretta U.S.A. has now delivered thousands of new M9 pistols to both U.S. military and Foreign Military customers from the Company’s Gallatin facility. New U.S. and Foreign Military Sales M9 orders were issued to the Company in August, extending production of M9 pistols from that facility into the year 2020.

“These pistols have successfully undergone 100% complete individual component interchangeability testing with no issues. These same pistols then passed all of the individual pistol tests after the Interchange Test, including Headspace Verification, Firing Pin Indent, Trigger Pull, Function, and Targeting & Accuracy. The pistols also each passed the function and other individual pistol tests 100%”, stated Gabriele de Plano, Vice- President of Military Marketing and Operations for Beretta Defense Technologies.

“The incredible reliability of the M9 pistol is being continuously confirmed,” Mr. de Plano added. “Half of the LAT Reliability tests resulted in “perfect” reliability scores with zero malfunctions in 15,000 rounds!”

“The most important characteristic of a military firearm is that it function as intended when needed in a crisis,” stated Franco Gussalli Beretta, Executive Vice-President of Beretta U.S.A. “The M9 has always proven itself to be the most reliable combat pistol in its 30 years of service with the US Armed Services and new M9 pistols being delivered today continue to show that reliability and performance.”
