In designing their M Beretta demonstrate their ability to not only make a pistol work well, but to make it visually attractive at the same time. Beretta design engineer Tullio Marengoni is credited with the design.

With the emergence of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the need to standardize on small arms calibers and ammunition Italy had more reasons to create a new pistol than just simply to upgrade the sturdy and reliable Beretta Models M Army, chambered for the ACP known to Italians as the 9mm Corto and M Navy, chambered for the 32ACP.

NATO was to standardize on the German 9mm Parabellum chambering and so Beretta created a 9mm Parabellum pistol that used a Browning style locked breech design. With the slide locked back the characteristic angle of the John M. Browning can be seen, This particular pistol is an Israeli model of the M Picture courtesy myvimu.

The actual operation of the Beretta M does not use locking lugs on the top of the barrel as in John M. On firing the barrel and slide are locked together and begin to recoil together until a locking piece located under the barrel is unlocked by a sliding pin causing the breech end of the barrel to be moved downwards unlocking it from the slide which continues rearwards ejecting the spent cartridge case and continuing to its rear stop. The under barrel spring then forces the slide forwards stripping a cartridge from the magazine and chambering it, driving the barrel forwards and the locking piece so the locking lugs on the sides of the breech engage in the recesses in the sides of the slide so the pistol is ready to fire again.

Early models of the M featured an alloy frame which proved to be insufficient in the long term to handle the power of the 9mm Parabellum cartridge. The M has a single column 8 round magazine and the safety catch is a crossbolt style which blocks the hammer visible at the top right side of the grip in the picture below.

The open top breech of the Beretta M like the open top Beretta pistols that came before and after it have a good reputation for reliability in ejection because of this as long as the extractor is not worn out of course.

On the Italian civilian market the pistol could not be sold in 9mm Parabellum because Italian law forbids her citizens from owning any pistol chambered for a military cartridge. Beretta made a civilian sporting version of the M in 7. These are amongst some of the nicest versions of this pistol to obtain as they are of commercial quality.

The MR was capable of fully automatic fire but was not a success. Its cyclic rate was rounds per minute but its extended magazine only held ten rounds.

The end result is a very short burst of fire that empties the magazine almost instantly. The MR features a forward hand grip to try to make the pistol controllable in full auto mode. The Beretta MR was capable of fully automatic fire but was completely impracticable. Picture courtesy exordinanza. These are full size Military and Police pistols and as such are much bigger and heavier than the sensibly sized Beretta M that preceded them.

In proper working order these are excellent and very reliable pistols but many of the M pistols in private hands now will be showing their age and be in need of some maintenance depending on their level of use. Mike Beliveau has a short video in which he shoots and field strips an M Beretta and in which he experiences the failure to extract problem that is commonly caused by a worn extractor. The two main criticisms of the design of the Beretta M are of the crossbolt safety catch and of the push button magazine release at the lower left side of the pistol grip.

Although these design features may not fit with normal American practice when viewed from the perspective of Israeli training they both make sense. Israeli training also teaches the shooter not to trust that the magazine will drop out when the magazine release is depressed but instead teaches the shooter to manually pull out the magazine to ensure it comes out reliably. So the design of the Beretta M fits perfectly with Israeli military and police training and this is quite likely also true of Middle Eastern States such as Egypt and Iraq for example.

The initial production batch featured a lightweight alloy frame, which proved to be unable to withstand the shock of the relatively high-powered 9mm Parabellum round in the long run. The steel-framed version was nearly grams heavier than the alloy version, but the balance was improved.
