The Beretta Model 92 is probably best known for being the standard issue sidearm for the US Military for which it has served since 1985 to present day. With its high capacity magazine, moderately low recoil and impressive accuracy the Italian made 9mm was an ideal choice for service personnel.
This airsoft M92 is manufactured by KWC under licensed from Umarex with full Pietro Beretta trademarks. Umarex chose to model this pistol after the classic Beretta by giving it a very clean and sleek look with subdued trademarks tastefully engraved into its slide, frame and grips. It features white dot combat sights and a functional slide mounted safety. This model is constructed with a polymer slide and frame yet still weighs in at a hefty 1.75 pounds.
Its lightweight slide combined with its positive pressure Magna blow back system generates a very quick cyclic rate, snappy recoil and superb gas efficiency which makes this M92 a blast to shoot. It produces a respectable 320 fps at the muzzle using a .2g BB and is surprisingly accurate. It did take a few hundred rounds for the hop-up to break in but once it did we were consistently pegging a torso sized target from over 130 feet away and with practice we getting hits all the way out to 50 yards. With this solid performance and a magazine capacity of 20 rounds this pistol makes a great skirmish sidearm and at a very affordable price.
This Umarex product comes with a 60 day warranty provided by Umarex USA. Warranty repair or replacement on this item must go through the Umarex Service Center and does not fall under the Shorty USA warranty.

If you're looking for a gas powered side arm look no further! The M9 is accurate, percise and above all, powerful! A friend of mine told me not to buy this gun because he prefers using C02. This gun uses propane and/or green gas and works just as well if not better than C02. The feel of this gun is very good as well and the weight makes it feel just like the real thing! i've found reloading the magazine to be annoying but the time spent reloading is petty compared to the time spent getting numerous hits during a match! I'd also like to thank the shortyusa staff for clarifying my suspicious and persuading me to buy a truely exceptional side arm.
