View Full Version : Beretta 92

Can someone enlighten me? Did either the military or some law enforcement have a Beretta 92 style handgun with either a 3 round burst or full auto option? A friend of mine says that a buddy of his in the military saw and fired such a weapon. If it does exist, what is it called?

It's called the Beretta M93R. I'm sure someone will post a picture of it.

It also had, I think, a fold down foregrip, a muzzle brake that looks like an extended and ported barrel, and a spindly looking folding stock. I can't recall about the fire modes...3 shot burst or full auto. I've only seen photos in the gun mags, not a real one.

If you use the Firearms Photos link at the top of the page it will take you to Security Arms. They have photos of many firearms including three of the Beretta 93; one suppressed, one closeup and one with the folding stock.

Forgot to mention that it is selective fire with three round burst capability. There are a couple of fully transferrable examples in the USA. Saw two in SGN last fall for $9000 and $10,000 respectively.

Thanks for the quick response. Are there any drawings or text on mode of operation that you know of?
