! already owned two 9mm 92F Berettas, a 92FS and a M9A3 (Inox). Both of them are really GREAT accurate shooters, that is following some trade outs-with after market parts by a master gunsmith! I am now very pleased with this new purchase of a Beretta M9A1 in a .22LR format, which was recently featured by Bud's Guns online at a really great price. I did some online research, and some reviews I read were critical that this isn't a "real" Berretta, because it is actually manufactured by (Walther)/Umarex in Germany, even though the gun is fully licensed and warrantied by Beretta and the gun has some great performance reviews and YouTube range videos . This is NOT an "air soft" repIica gun! I purchased 1000 rds of .22LR ammo and 7-extra magazines for this gun and I am really looking forward to really getting into this M9A1-22LR at my neighborhood range. The .22LR magazines are super easy no load, no loader is required as there is an external access button to slide down to compress the magazine spring. This gun has great personal potential for me as a "trainer" with lower cost ammunition, less recoil, resulting in more on-target trigger time at the range focusing on the fundamentals. The purchase of this gun was actually cheaper than the cost of a Beretta "trainer" conversion kit to change over a 9mm 92FS or M9A1 to .22cal would have been, plus I am not a gunsmith, and I didn't see myself changing over back and forth one of my 9mm Beretta to the ,22LR format. So, it was a real easy decision to purchase another M9A1 frame dedicated to .22LR.

Gun performs perfect. With the high ammo prices right now, this is the perfect semiauto for the range without spending hundreds on 9mm.

A really great gun to practice with it you have a Beretta 92. Shoots good in defensive exercises. And the ammo is a LOT less expensive than 9MM. It has a very nice trigger; both double and single action. Unfortunately NRA defensive classes require center fire ammo but you can still practice with the M9-22. The guns are about the same weight and size. The only read difference is the magazine release. The M9-22 is by the trigger guard and the 92 I have (late 1970's) it is at the bottom of the grips. I like the gun and so does my wife . . . . I wonder how much I'll be able to shoot it??

Great for plinking or as a training aid for teaching new shooters on an identical platform as a Beretta 92

The Beretta M9-22 is accurate, balanced, and a joy to shoot. It functions well with any of the name-brand ammunition I use.

I shot some 50 year old Federal 22 LR round nose ammo and not one misfire or failure to eject. Fun gun.
