** The Beretta M9A1 pictured is California legal and does not require additional CA compliant parts or modification.**
This legendary semiauto handgun has not only won the historic contract with the US military in 1985, but has achieved a triumphant contract renewal after more than two decades of hard use in the world's toughest and most extreme conditions, from the scorching deserts of Iraq to the frigid heights of the Afghan mountains. A contract renewal after this kind of use and abuse means a product that has kept its promises - and then some. Simply put, there is no pistol today that is as durable, reliable, dependable, easy to use, safe and accurate as the Beretta M9, the handgun that has rightfully earned the nickname of World Defender.

Beretta makes a quality product, and have been making them for hundreds of years. The M9-A1 is no exception. I do think the standard mag release button is too small/short, but Beretta sells an extended mag release that is fairly easy to install. I would also replace the lanyard loop with a mag well guide, and the plastic guide rod with a steel guide rod. Then slap a light on the rail and you're good to go. If you want to get fancy, pick up a Langdon Tactical trigger job in a bag. You won't regret it.
Great weapon. Good optics right out of the box.
