Beretta Offers First Factory Equipped Guide Rod Laser

The Beretta 92FS is now available from the Beretta factory with a “precision engineered” internal Guide Rod Laser preinstalled. The new laser-equipped Beretta 92FS pistol is LaserMax’s latest collaborative effort. The new pistols will be offered in both red and green laser variants.

LaserMax is the only manufacturer of an internal guide rod laser sight. This patented design has been proven through over a quarter century of combat and defensive use by tier one special operation forces, conventional military units, federal agents, SWAT and police professionals, and responsible firearm owners worldwide. The Guide Rod Laser installs as close to the pistol bore line as possible, ensuring the most consistent relationship between point of aim and point of impact (POA/POI) over all shooting distances. Emitting a highly visible pulsed laser for rapid target acquisition, the LaserMax sight comes factory aligned for guaranteed center-of-mass accuracy at 20 yards.

We previously discussed the availability of the LaserMax, but that was as an aftermarket add-on.

To purchase a LaserMax-equipped Beretta 92FS contact a Beretta USA dealer.  There was no price listed on the release, but I would assume it would add somewhere around the $450 MSRP (~$350 street) price tag of the standalone.

    If I didn’t use a suppressor this would be nice.

    Looks awesome. But Crimson trace laser grips are cheaper and better in my opinion.

    “Preinstalled? What if I just want it regular ‘installed’?

  • I have one on my Glock 21. Extremely accurate because there is no offset and the laser is very close to the bore. However every time I’m at the range it is accidentally turned on, but invisible due to the sun, and I come home with the batteries dead.

    Having used lasers more, I’ve come to the conclusion that any laser that isn’t green isn’t worth it. And the best set ups are in line with the bore – the ideal being a green Crimson Trace “Laserguard” like setup.

      Mine was more hassle than it was worth as well. It needed a very specifically weighed recoil spring, uncommon batteries (which died way too fast), a tool to remove the switch (which only then you could remove the slide), and the muzzle blast would carbon cloud up the emitter within a few shots.

      What I did like was the pulsating dot, close alignment to the bore, and the compatibility with every holster ever since it was all internal, but everything else made it too high maintenance for my liking.

    Why in this day and age of the 21st century this device is not more common or sold as standard equipment on any handgun amazes me.
    Must be the after market money they look for.
