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.

    Has any of you installed one of the standalone lasers on your 92 series?  What did you think of it?
