A 9mm Beretta like the 80x Cheetah?

Does Beretta offer any DA/SA pistols with a frame mounted safety/decocker in a carry size, like the 80x Cheetah, but in 9mm?

92X Performance is more of a competition gun, and does not allow for cocked and locked carry if I am not mistaken.
And the Xi is SAO.

Maybe I'm having a brain fart, but I don't see how you can have a safety/decocker that can be carried cocked and locked.

It exists. HK (i.e. USP / USPc) does it.

Taurus used to make one, but sadly it's no longer in production.

CZ 82 is DA/SA and can be carried cocked and locked. It doesn't have a decocker, though.

Isn't the CZ 82 9mm Makarov? Not the easiest ammo to find.

My HK P30SK has a safety and a (separate) decocker, and can be carried cocked and locked if I want to.

I am looking for the same thing in a Beretta. Whether the safety and decocker are the same lever (like in the USP) or separate doesn't really matter to me, but I would like the ability to carry cocked and locked if I want to or decocked and safety on.

I don't want to go for a Beretta with a slide mounted safety because I like to have the same manual of arms in all my pistols.

A FN fnx has a single lever that is safety and decocker, you can most certainly go cocked and locked.

The Beretta performance, defense and performance defense models all allow cocked and locked. I own them.

Yes, it is, but the CZ-83 is the same firearm, chambered for .380 ACP.

Sevt,

how about hammer down safety on?

Was not aware of that mechanism on the HK. It's a good day when you learn something new. Thanks, gang.

Nothing similar in a Beretta line that I am aware of, though.

I don't remember off the top of my head, I shoot my CZ shadow 2s way more. I'll check on Wednesday when I get back home.

With the hammer down, you can apply the safety lever.

I have two such guns, the H&K USP and the Taurus PT92, both use a three position safety/decocker lever on the frame.





Up = Safe, Center = Fire, Down = Decock.
So you can cock the hammer back, flip the safety lever up, and carry them cocked and locked.

Are you talking about your FN or the Berettas?

For my FNX-45 you can apply the hammer down with safety on.

Dont know of any Beretta product like that in the Cheeta size.

Safety/Decocker
The Taurus 92, which is still in production, has a frame mounted safety lever that when pushed down will decock the pistol.
When the safety lever is pushed up the safety is on and the slide cannot be racked.
The safety can be pushed up if the hammer is cocked or the hammer is down (decocked).
I'd say the Taurus 92 is a 'full sized' firearm...maybe to big to be considered a 'carry firearm' like the OP wanted in their original post.

The Springfield XDe is a DA/SA with decocker that can also be carried cocked and locked. The manual safety switch is the decocker when pushed down and the manual safety is engaged when flipped up. With the gun cocked and the manual safety is engaged, the gun is essentially cocked and locked.
