Beretta 92 A1 An Exclusive Series
On the 91 A1 series pistol, a machined rail (Picatinny MIL STD 1913) integrated into the frame allows the mounting of light andlaser accessories. The recoil spring guide and recoil spring are now a solid assy to allow easy and quick removal The disassembly latch automatically returns to the locking position when the slide is retracted Inside the frame, near the disassembly latch, a metallic recoil buffer reduces the impact of the slide assembly against the frame during the shooting cycle. By redistributing the stresses, the recoil buffer increases the service life of the firearm. Rear and front sights can be removed for replacement with other types of sights of different height. The 92 A1 series pistols described in this manual includes current versions of the Model 92 A1 in 9mmx19 NATO (also known as 9mm Luger or 9mm Parabellum) caliber, the Model 98 A1 in 9mmx21 IMI caliber and the Model 96 A1 in .40 S&W caliber.
Beretta’s 92 A1 series semi-automatic pistols use a short recoil locked-breech system with falling block. When the pistol is fired, the pressure developed by combustion gas recoils the slide-barrel assembly. After a short run of slidebarrel assembly, the locking block falls and releases the slide letting it recoil while the barrel stops against frame. The slide, during its rearward movement, extracts and ejects the fired cartridge case, cocks the hammer and activates the recoil spring. Pushed by the recoil spring, the slide then moves forward feeding the next cartridge from the magazine into the chamber and causing barrel-slide locking. The slide is designed to stay open after the last cartridge has been fired and ejected.
