The M9A3 is not very heavy to start with, so the balance was way forward.

Accuracy at 30 feet was satisfactory, considering that the sights were below the top of the suppressor (Bindon Aiming Concept), and the blowback was consistently symmetrical to both sides of my face, unpleasant and distracting.

No malfunctions.

Ten rounds was enough.

Two stars out of five.

Centerfire pistol suppressed is underwhelming in general. Sure some are 'better' or 'worse', but it's all "meh" to me.

I like my Octane on my G21. But on my 300blk AR, it’s a whole different kind of cool.

I just picked up a M9A3 yesterday. I probably won't be able to shoot it until next week, but I'll report what I find as well.

Is the gun yours? I'm curious to see the top of your slide if you have one. The finish around the extractor retaining pin hole is kinda crappy. Looks like it's chipping out.

I didn't realize it in the store (thanks to Top Gun Supply by the way).

esdunbar,

I had a look at my pistol. I don't think I see the finish chipping near the extractor retaining pin hole.

Edit: I was wrong,, it has the marks you asked about

Beretta M9A3?


If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.

I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either Wink

I have an older 92F that I use for suppressed shooting. I prefer my Glock 21 when shooting suppressed.

I really want an M9A3 but in black.



Not minority enough!
