Beretta has announced the release of what I would call the logical next step for the 92 series of pistols – the Beretta 92X Performance Carry Optic pistol. This new addition to the 92X Performance family will still share the same steel Vertec Frame, Xtreme-S adjustable trigger, and of course its signature polymer carrying case. The new 92X Performance Carry Optic slide, however, will make use of Toni System Optic plates that will allow the end user to use most of the popular pistol red dot optics on the market today. Full details on the latest variant of the 92X Performance are posted below.

Beretta Launches the New 92X Performance Carry Optic Pistol
Beretta USA is excited to announce the launch of the new 92X Performance Carry Optic – the next evolution of the popular 92X Performance line of competition pistols. The 92X Performance family was designed in collaboration with the world’s highest-level competitive shooters to have out-of-the-box optimized performance and consistency. The new 92X Performance Carry Optic model retains the same ergonomics and features of the popular 92X Performance platform with a red dot optic-ready slide, included optic plates, and improved trigger performance.
Compliant with the USPSA (United States Pistol Shooting Association) Carry Optic division regulations, the 92X Performance Carry Optic provides an uncompromising performance aimed at earning you a spot at the top of the podium with power, speed, and accuracy.
● Red Dot Optic-Ready Slide
● Xtreme-S Trigger System
● Competition Mag Release
● Low-Profile (USPSA Compliant) Frame Mounted Safety
● Skeletonized Hammer
● Adjustable Rear Sight with High-Vis Fiber Optic Front Sight
● Toni System Optic Plates
The hallmark of the 92X Performance Family is the steel Vertec Frame with optimized
performance ergonomics and weight balance. The 47.6 oz (1350 g) overall weight,
higher Beaver Tail, and front and rear strap texturing provide optimal grip position and
recoil management for quick purchase, draw and release control – resulting in faster
target acquisition and follow-up shots. The generous magazine well has been contoured
and flared to provide quicker, more accurate reloads, while the mag release is both
oversized and reversible to accommodate for right or left-handed shooters.
The Xtreme-S Trigger is fully adjustable for take-up, break and overtravel, allowing for
fine-tuning to the shooter’s preference, and provides up to a 40% reset reduction in travel compared to the standard 90 series triggers. This adjustability makes the Xtreme-S the most advanced pistol trigger that Beretta has ever produced, representing a level of innovation that meets the needs of the world’s most refined and demanding shooters.
The latest addition to the 92X Performance family, the optics-ready slide cut allows
shooters to adopt modern optics to the platform, further enhancing the shooting
experience and driving faster results on target. In the 92X Performance Carry Optic,
plates are included with the gun out-of-the-box for end-user configuration of the most
popular red-dot optics available in the market today.
Included in its’ polymer carrying case, the 92X Performance Carry Optic comes with two
magazines with extended base plates, two Toni System optic plates (compatible with four
optic mounting patterns), a wraparound grip, and a CA-compliant gun lock.
Available in 10 and 15-round magazine capacities, the new Beretta 92X Performance
Carry Optic retails for an MSRP of $1,799.
The 92X Performance Carry Optic will be on display and available for demo at this
week’s 2022 USPSA Carry Optic National Championship at the CMP Talladega
Marksmanship Park in Talladega, AL, from September 9-11, 2022.
Several online retailers already have them listed as “out of stock” but at a lower retail price of about $1,699. As a fan of the Beretta 92 series of pistols, this is one I’d really like to pick up for USPSA or Multi-Gun competitions.
