There really has been very little released about this gun, so no one knows. I would imagine that it would. Seems that they are making the slide look kinda like the PX4 - And, I heard that the Vertec was going to be discontinued - It seems that you now have the option of putting either a similiar grip angle to the Vertec, or the traditional grip angle. I think a lot of Beretta purists are gonna get angry if they discontinue the standard Beretta 92/96 completely and only sell this one. We'll see...

It will take some getting used to, to look at. But then, I thought the M9 was the ugliest gun under the sun when it first replaced the M1911A1...

Is it going to be the latest military incarnation of the M9?

No, I'll see if I can dig up a pic of the MP - it looks more like the standard Beretta, but with a Vertec rail (but with the old style grip).

Thanks; I remember discussion on the Beretta Forum about which would be the "real" M9A1, the pistol pictured or the 90Two. The Marines issued a contract for the pictured M9A1, but there were vibes that the 990Two would get the Army nod due to its modular grip.

990Two? Anyone have specs or information about that particular gun?

Ahh, see when he said 990Two, I thought there was a different model from the 90 Two. Didnt stop to think it was a typo :lol:

That picture makes me like it even more. Would be nice to have stainless version in .40 Caliber. Alas Beretta, you have abandoned the INOX finish :(

Just found more info at: http://www.90-two.com

My favorite part:

The Beretta 90two is available in both the traditional single/double action and in the double-action-only version. All feature new higher capacity magazines in the 9mm x 19 Parabellum (Luger) and .40 S&W calibers.

Yes!!! I'll take two please:-D

Got this from Beretta USA on email in reply to a question I asked of the discontinuation of the Inox guns.


The 92FS and 96FS Inox pistols were discontinued for 2006. The 92FS pistol is being continued as both the 92 and M9 pistol in the black Bruniton finish. The .40 cal. 96FS Bruniton has been discontinued. There will be a new polymer frame and steel slide version of the .40 cal. pistol in the Bruniton finish coming very soon. We believe it will be called the "90-TWO" pistol. Decisions to continue and drop certain pistol models are made by Beretta Italy, Beretta USA's parent company.

I hope this information is helpful. If you have follow up questions or need further assistance with this issue, please update this incident.

Best regards,

Beretta Customer Support

That is really a stupid decision on their part - I can see selling both the new design and old - but I believe they will hurt their sales by doing this.

Here are a few more pics of the new Beretta coming out - I gotta say, I really do not like the looks. I doubt I would ever buy one...

I guess. I really don't dig the PX 4 slide - Now this Beretta is having the same look on the sides of the slide...
