Beretta M9A3 JS92M A3M 9mm Luger, $1099

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

GUN TESTS GRADE: B
The Beretta worked well for shooters with larger hands and it was fast in the speed drills. However, it wasn’t that accurate, and shooters with smaller hands didn’t like it.

Three of the Beretta’s upgrades are obvious here: a three-slot Picatinny rail, replaceable sights, and a threaded barrel. It had an evenly applied finish with two shades of flat dark earth coloring on the slide and frame. The sturdy sights were bright Trijicon night sights that could be drifted for windage. Made for the Army, available to citizens.
Our pistol came in an ammobox-style container that contained the pistol, three magazines, lock, and spare grip, all secured in foam cutouts.
With the M9A3, Beretta tried to provide the U.S. Army with an improved version of the M9 based on 30+ years field experience. Our shooters with larger hands found the Beretta’s controls very easy to use. Smaller-handed shooters did not.
