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.

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.
