Continuing with updates to the well-liked Model 92 series, Beretta this week announced the new optic-ready 92X RDO 9mm pistol. 

The latest addition to Beretta's handgun lineup is an update to the 92X line, which debuted in 2019, and includes a factory red-dot ready slide with dovetailed high-visibility orange/black combat sights, an updated short-reset trigger, and 18-round magazines. 

"We are proud to launch the latest variant of the new 92X family of pistols," Gabriele de Plano, vice president of BDT Marketing & Operations, said. "This launch continues the long history of success of the Beretta 92 series, now integrating features modern shooters demand."

The Beretta 92X RDO ships with blanking covers over the optics cut and the end-user can purchase one of five different plates to fit most popular red dots. The upside is that you don't end up with plates you don't need. The downside is you aren't optics-ready right out of the box until you track down the right plate.  (Photo: Beretta)

As with other 92X models, the new RDO has aggressively textured Vertec-style "thin" grips, a Picatinny accessory rail, and front slide serrations. Double-action/single-action, it runs Beretta's "universal slide" that comes in an "F" (safety-decocker) style but can be easily converted to the "G" format (decocker-only) and back.

The MSRP on the new Beretta 92X RDO, which ships with two 18-shot magazines in non-restrictive states, is $699. 

The new model joins the recently announced suppressor-ready FDE M9A4, which like the 92X RDO has a slide cut, Vertec grip, and 18-round magazines.
