The M9 pistol has served the US Military and countless other organizations well for decades, but it is not without its detractors. As a full metal, double stack 9mm pistol, the M9 by its nature will have a larger grip than most other pistols on the market – but the grip is even bigger than it needs to be. This has many users unable to reach the trigger, and those who can reach the trigger report discomfort and frustration trying to make the gun shoot well.
Enter the 92FS Vertec pistol, more commonly known as the M9 Vertec in Airsoft circles. The M9 Vertec incorporates Beretta’s slimmest grip to improve ergonomics and trigger reach by straightening out the backstrap of the M9, resulting in a grip that also possesses an angle not unlike the M1911, which pioneered the ideal grip angle for pistols. The M9 Vertec also comes with a dust cover mounted rail, allowing for accessories, such as a laser or flashlight, to be mounted.
Despite all these changes, the M9 Vertec will still fit into regular M9/92 holsters, and will accept all M9 magazines from KJW. KJW’s build quality is excellent, showing up in areas such as finish and trigger pull. The M9 Vertec possesses a two-stage trigger in single action mode, and a smooth double action pull when the hammer is down. Unlike the Tokyo Marui M9 this gun was based off, the KJW M9 Vertec comes with a hopup mechanism to extend range.
Please note that this gun comes with a CO2 magazine, per Canadian Firearm Regulations. This gun, in line with the majority of airsoft M9/92 pistols, does not feature a decocker. Please use caution when firing this gun, and please abide by all laws as they relate to airsoft. For further information, please contact us.Read More
