Transitional Beretta 92Ses Available Through PSA

    The historically interesting – though obsolete – Beretta 92S pistol is available for an excellent price from Palmetto State Armory, blogs WeaponsMan. The 92 series, once described by Andrew Tuohy as “the best handgun you should never buy”, went through a series of evolutions, taking it from something closer to a reimagined Walther P39, to the newest railed models available from Beretta.

    The 92S fits in the earlier part of the 92’s history. It was the first model to feature the slide-mounted, combined safety/decocker, a request from European law enforcement agencies. However, it still retains the early heel magazine release, which makes it virtually antique by modern pistol standards.

    At 290 bucks, it’s an easy sell for the historically interested handgun shooter, though.
