    Was talking with another customer at the local gun shop the other day. The topic was US Military handguns, and his assertion that "Dude, word is that the Army is going to start buying the Beretta 92A1 as the M9A2". I didn't know what else to say but "Really?".

    More keen insight from the gunshop crowd?

    when i brought my 92a1 a few months ago, the dealer told me that there not going
    to make the m-9 any more. civilian version? i went to order the m9a1 but ended up
    with the 92a1 instead. a pistol i do enjoy. sometimes you dont know to believe the
    dealers or not. thats for posting that information.

    What is the difference between the M9A1 and the 92A1? I personally have a NIB Beretta M9, but looking at the slide there is no after designation behind the M9. The only difference I can see between my M9 and my 92FS's is that the rear sight of the M9 has a dot centered in the lower portion of the notch and the 92FS's have a three dot system. Other than that they appear to be identical in make.

    In 2009 the military bought 450,000 more M9's and the Marines bought a large number of M9A1's.
