Beretta M9 Commerical 15+1 9mm 4.9"
by ERIC M Date Added: Monday 16 July, 2012
The Beretta M9 arrived at my FFL within just a couple days, first time ordering from Buds and I certainly will again. I carried an issued M9 from 1993-2000. This is nearly identical to that pistol, which I carried in Panama, Haiti and Bosnia. It was extremely rugged and reliable, and this version appears to be as well. There is one major exception, which is easily fixed. The spring guide rod is plastic, unlike my original issue M9. It is of a cross/hatch design and is not cylindrical [i.e. if you looked at it straight on, it would look like a plus sign (+), not a cylindrical rod (o)]. I can see this being a major problem in extreme elements as mud and sand could accumulate in the spaces along the sides of the spring guide rod inside the spring. Fortunately, Beretta has a kit on their site. I ordered that, and now my M9 is about as close as I'm going to get to having my original military-issue pistol. There are plenty of aftermarket steel spring guide rods out there, too. Anyway this pistol is built like a tank, fires just about anything I put in it, and amazingly my wife, who has a LOT of problems operating the slide on just about every brand of pistol out there, has no problems moving the slide on the M9.

There's a review below where someone said their armorer in the military would always tell them to check this and check that each time they took the M9 out of the arms room, and this made the reviewer think the M9 was not reliable. On the contrary, the very reason it was an M9 in his arms room and not any other pistol is specifically because of its dependability. However, when you draw an M9 from an arms room, that pistol has probably been around a decade or more, been fired by dozens of people and exposed to extreme elements, and has probably had more than 100,000 rounds put through it. It's just common sense to examine the pistol when drawing it from the arms room, and one armorer's comments should not be allowed to tarnish the track record of this amazing pistol.
This pistol will be by your side through thick and thin. Pick one up now, you won't regret it.
