Beretta 96 Vertec Inox 40 S&W

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Accuracy was good, if not outstanding. The pistol was reliable and we liked the safety features. The Beretta offers the lowest magazine capacity of the pistols tested. Beretta fans will likely prefer the Inox over the others, but we preferred the SIG P226.

The Vertec grip fit most hands well, our shooters said.
Many feel the Beretta safety/decocker is an advantage in safe handling. All depends on your training, of course.
The Vertec front sight, left, is a big improvement over the standard Beretta 92, right.
The Beretta's straight-line feed is an advantage in feed reliability. Note the open design of the slide.
