First introduced in September 2021, the 92X RDO pistol line provided enhanced performance options for competition and personal defense. Since then, the company has introduced additional models with a competitive focus. Now, Beretta puts the focus on concealed carry for personal defense with the new 92X RDO compact.
The Beretta 92X RDO Compact
The RDO Compact features aggressively textured 92X-style thin grips, coupled with front and backstrap checkering. As a result, the Compact provides instinctive control and pointing for consistent and accurate target acquisition. However, for those looking to dial in their grip, wraparound grips come with the pistol. A beveled magazine well also allows for quick magazine swaps under duress and in adverse lighting conditions.
The slide features integral slide cuts for mounting your choice of optics. Consumers receive a free optic plate at the time of registration or can purchase an additional one aftermarket. The slide ships with blanking covers but five available mounting plates cover all of the most popular red dot sights on the market today.
Additionally, the slide features forward and rear slide serrations for easy manipulation under adverse conditions. The RDO also includes a removable high-visibility orange dot front sight, coupled with a black rear sight.
Chambered in 9mm, the RDO features a short reset trigger for faster trigger pulls. An easily replaceable control lever allows the user to convert from safety-decocker (F) to deckocker-only (G) and back. Just forward of the trigger guard is a three-slot Picatinny rail for the addition of other optics, lights, and accessories.
The RDO ships with two 15-round, anti-friction-coated magazines. However, a 10-round magazine option is available for those who live in capacity-limited states.
The Beretta 92X RDO Compact is available now, with an MSRP of $729.00. For more info, please visit Beretta.com.
