Beretta M9 Handgun Problems

Posted by:

Slide failures and inadequate stopping power are just some of the criticisms of the Beretta M9 (92F), a semi-automatic 9-mm pistol that replaced the Colt M1911A1 as the U.S. military’s standard sidearm in 1985. The M9 was chosen over the SIG Sauer P226, which later spawned the P228, the P229 and the Mosquito.

Critics also cite the Beretta M9’s magazine failures, but there’s plenty of blame here to go around. To control costs, the U.S. government purchased M9 magazines from Continue Reading →

Handgun Comparison – SIG Sauer P226 vs. Beretta M9

Posted by:

The SIG P226 handgun was designed to replace the Colt M1911A1, the standard issue sidearm for the U.S. military from 1911 to 1985. During the Army’s XM9 Service Pistol Trials, only the SIG P226 and the Beretta 92F (M9) performed satisfactorily.

Although the P226 had a lower per-unit cost than the 92F, Beretta won the contract because its overall cost, including magazines and spare parts, was lower.

Since then, SIG Sauer has produced two smaller versions of P226: the P228 and ...

That’s why some shooters are trying flexible honing tools and a handheld electric drill for removing rust and corrosion.
