Definitive Guide to Beretta M92A1

Sometimes we take airgunning too seriously, in a world of chronograph readings and ever growing foot pound ratings; sometimes we forget why we love airguns. For most of us, we got into airguns for the simple reason of it being a fun and easy way to enjoy shooting sports and every now and again a gun comes along that reminds us of that, that sometimes an airgun needs no other apparent reason for being than to just be fun. The Beretta M92A1 Full Auto is such a gun. With super realistic ergonomics and construction and the ability to fire at cyclic rates upwards of 500 rounds per minute this full auto BB gun will put a smile on your face time and time again.

Detailed Review
History of the Model 92
The Beretta Model 92 has been through so many iterations and changes over the years that it really is a gun that can satisfy just about any preference. Having been adopted by militaries and police units worldwide it has become a staple in the shooting world and established a reputation as reliable and accurate. It's no surprise that with the popularity of the firearm the Beretta Model 92 has been one of the most commonly replicated firearms in the airgun world. There has been everything from inexpensive airsoft replicas to super high-end pellet guns produced to closely resemble this iconic handgun.



Now Umarex has stepped up the game with the introduction of the Beretta 92A1 Full Auto BB Pistol. This accurately reproduced pistol features full metal construction, a drop free 18 round magazine, realistic blowback action and of course, the ability to fire in full auto mode making the Beretta 92A1 one of the most fun and entertaining guns on the market!



Firearm fanatics will point out that there's never been a full auto Beretta 92. That's true as Beretta developed their full auto version and called it the Beretta 93R that is based on the Model 92. ôR" standing for Raffica, which is Italian for volley, flurry, or burst. And apply named term for the result of pulling the trigger in full auto mode.



The Basic Anatomy of the M92 Full Auto
Holding the 92A1 in hand you get a real sense for the care that Umarex put into producing the accurate reproduction of the firearm. The fit and finish of the handgun rival that of some of the even more expensive airgun replicas. The metal construction makes the weight and feel of the gun very realistic.



The controls of the 92A1 all function just like they do on the real deal. Fire the gun till the magazine is empty and the slide locks to the rear just like the real thing, load in a fresh mag and hit the slide release and it will slam back into battery just like the real thing. Even the pull of the double/single action trigger is close to the real thing.



All these features add up to make the Beretta M92 A1 Full Auto BB Pistol a great addition to any collection, but we think that it will be appreciated even more by owners of firearm Beretta M92 who are looking for an airgun replica of their favorite pistol.

Accuracy, Power, and Shot Count
The Beretta M92A1 is a smooth bore BB pistol, and as such it's not winning any awards for accuracy, but precision shooting is not really the game of the M92A1. Think of the M92A1 as the ultimate in backyard plinking. Sure you can shoot it in semi auto and practice your trigger pull and shooting technique and you'll have no problem hitting empty cans and bottles from about 10 to 15 yards out, but we would be willing to bet that most of you will slide that selector to the full auto setting and let her rip.



With a cyclic rate of over 500 rounds per minute, the M92A1 will dump a full magazine in under 2 seconds allowing you to lay waste to targets in no time flat. Sure, it may not shoot 1" hole groups, but when you can go full auto, who cares?



The M92A1 Full Auto is about average on power when it comes to BB pistols. Shooting it over our chronograph it made about 400 fps. Like most CO2 BB pistols the Beretta M92A1 is not meant to be a powerhouse which also means that as long as you have a sufficient backstop you won't have to worry about sending BB's though your backstop and into places you don't want them to go. Again, the M92A1 is a backyard gun at heart with the added benefit of full auto.



Because the M92A1 is a full auto blowback gun it will run through CO2 like its going out of style. We were getting about 3 to 4 full magazines out of the gun before it was depleted, and while this is much better that other full auto CO2 guns (the Umarex Legends M712 only gets about 2 magazines per CO2 cartridge) it's still not what we would call efficient. Really we should have no room to complain here, anytime you buy a full auto CO2 gun just know that the shot count is going to be low, good thing Airgun Depot sells 40 count CO2 packs at some of the best prices around (wink).

Accessories
If you'd like to avoid having to fill your clip after every two seconds of full auto bliss, the first thing you need to invest in is extra M92A1 magazines. Though on the pricey side (since the magazine incorporates the CO2 as well) the ability to switch mags means that you could feasibly fire 72 rounds in 10 seconds! Of course you'll have to practice swapping mags quickly to get that fast.



The M92 Full Auto comes equipped with a Picatinny accessory rail under the barrel that is great for mounting lights or lasers. We are big fans of the NC Star Green Compact Pistol Laser or the UTG LED Weapons Light. They both add to the realism of the gun and make shooting in low light a ton of fun. There are also a wide variety of holsters that fit the Beretta M92 Full Auto. The Leapers Special Ops Tactical Leg Holster is a great way to pack your M92 around in the yard for quick access to shooting fun.



When it comes to appropriate targets you can use your Beretta on the usual few BB traps. But many don't realize that with the use of low ricochet Smart Shot BBs you can also shoot at metal targets as well. These copper-plated lead BB's flatten on impact and reduce the chance of ricochets significantly. The Air Venturi Stampede Pellet Trap is a blast to shoot with the M92A1 set on full rock and roll. With four shoot to reset targets, you can blast away at it for hours. Even with the aid of low ricochet BBs, when shooting at any metal target or pellet trap wearing safety glasses is a must.



When it comes to targets we realize that most of you will be lining up soda cans to blast away at, Elvis Presley style of course, "All Shook Up". Once you get your full auto Beretta M92A1, head over to our Instagram or Facebook page and post a video blasting cans of the beverage of your choice!

High Quality, Realistic Replica The M92 Full Auto is made with detail in mind. Every control, from the slide stop to the de-cocker safety, functions just like it does on the real firearm. The blowback slide is an added measure of realism making the Umarex Beretta 92 Full Auto a good choice for owners of the real Beretta 92 who are looking for an inexpensive and convenient way to practice their marksmanship... though in reality the joy of the full auto is what you'll be using it for most!

Fully Automatic Firing Mode Let's face it, for most of us owning a machine pistol is out of the question. With all the government red tape and the high costs of ownership, it is not something many of us will get to experience. However the Beretta 92A1 Full Auto from Umarex gives you much of the same thrill at a fraction of the cost. The M92 Full Auto is fast! Switch the selector to full auto and be ready to dump the whole magazine in under 2 seconds. Be sure to stock up on CO2 and BBs, you're going to need them!

Accuracy & Power So accuracy is not really the M92 Full Auto Pistols forte', after all it is a smooth bore BB gun. When firing in full auto it's more of a firehose than a precision tool, but for backyard plinking it is just right. Hitting tin cans and empty bottles is no problem, and with reasonable FPS readings from our chronograph (about 400 FPS), you won't have to worry about BB's going through backstops and fences where you don't want them. Since BB's do have a tendency to ricochet always be sure to wear safety glasses or opt for low ricochet Smart Shot BBs.

Accessories The M92 Full Auto comes equipped with a Picatinny accessory rail under the barrel that is great for mounting lights or lasers. We are big fans of the NC Star Green Compact Pistol Laser or the UTG LED Weapons Light, they both add to the realism of the gun and make shooting in low light a ton of fun. There are also a wide variety of holsters that fit the M92 Full Auto. The Leapers Special Ops Tactical Leg Holster is a great way to pack your M92 around in the yard for quick access to shooting fun. Also make sure to pick up an extra mag or two if you want non-stop full auto fun.
