I've been wandering the 'net, and I've found an interesting picture of a Beretta about which I can find no information.

I think it looks kinda sexy, and I'm mostly into wheelguns!

Beretta 92 Combat

These two new Beretta Combat pistols are currently being developed and tested and are distinguished by a particularly aggressive and personal style. These pistols are specifically modified to improve performance in competition combat style shooting. The operation is single action only, and the ambidextrous manual safety blocks the sear and the slide in the dosed position. Magazine capacity is 17 rounds. As with all developmental models, specifications are subject to change.

So it's a prototype for production? Cause I would buy one of these in a heartbeat...

I wonder why there are no more pictures of this thing? When I search for Beretta 92 Combat on Google the pictures that come back are of a gun with a double action trigger and a completely different slide/compensator.

It looks like it says Beretta on the side of it.

"Let's see if we can come up with a way to make the M9 (92fs) heavier and larger."

"The next time you're in trouble, don't just dial 911....

Dial 911 plus 1000!"

How did you ever think of this incredibly witty sig line?

I wonder if it is competitive in IPSC (NOT our USPSA). Compensator = Open but iron sights and minor caliber would make it a non-starter here. Kind of like the Sig Sauer X-Fives and the earlier Sport models.

This gun again? Wasn't it already done in the 80s?

Only problem is finding a surgeon who is also a mechanical engineer to install the power operated holsters into your thighs.

Grumpy, is that Photoshopped or a real piece? Tell us a bit more about it.

No thanks, and hell no. :)

The beavertail on the first gun looks... clownish.

Reminds me of an old "competition" model Beretta made back in the 90s when they had a few different catalogued in the 92 collection.

There were the 92FS, 92FC, 92 Brigadier, 92 Compact, and a few other variants which are not made anymore.

I believe Grumpy's pic is the pistol used by Robocop, an OCP Auto-9 (http://www.robocoparchive.com/info/auto9.htm).

The Beretta the OP posted is an ugly beast, but without shooting it, I'll reserve judgement.
Hell, if I went by looks alone, I'd have never picked up a Glock.

I'd take a good 9mm any day and not feel undergunned.

Same here. Placement is the name of the game.

that was a baretta 92fs that had been modified for the robocop movie.

I have a feeling the pistol up top was also made for a movie (this is just a guess) but I could be wrong.

No, I am pretty sure that was a limited run competition model. I've seen something similar in old Beretta catalogues in the early 90s when I was looking for a wunder-nine.

Wow they took a beautiful gun and made it fugly.

They already made and discontinued a combat model of the 92, it was called the beretta 93r and it was the prettiest machine pistol ever made.

That mag button on the OP's picture looks awful, pretty easy to accidentally bump with any conventional grip known to man. And the beavertail is hideous.

What's that front piece, a retractible monopod?

icebones

no, its a foregrip, its meant for your to hang on to with your left hand and to loop the thumb through the triggergaurd. supposed to make it more controlable in 3 round burst.

It's a foregrip like the ones on all the tacticool AR15s.

Go youtube Beretta 93R and you will find people using it the way it was meant to be used.

John Travolta also used it well in a bad movie, "Broken Arrow" where a Park Ranger outshot and won against a team of trained military types.
