Beretta M9A1 with the Safety Off and no Weapon Light attached
The M9A1 is an improved version of the Beretta M9, developed for the USMC. The USMC initially ordered 20,000 and followed up with additional smaller orders. There are several improvements over the standard M9 including:
- Mil 1913 accessory rail for attaching tactical lights and lasers.
- Extra checkering on the front and back straps.
- Re-profiled trigger-guard.
- Beveled magazine well.
- Specially coated 15rd sand resistant magazines.
Several thousand of these have been ordered by the USMC and it is also available for civilian sale, with the only difference being some of the slide markings.
