The Company, therefore, reserves the right to make, at any moment and without notice, any changes it thinks lecessary to improve its models or to meet any requirements of manufacturing or commercial nature.

Always ensure that the safety is fully engaged until ready to fire. A safety which is not fully engaged will not prevent firearm discharge.

In addition to the Basic Safety Rules, there are other Safety Rules pertaining to the loading, unloading, disassembly, assembly and use of this firearm, located throughout this manual. Never let the muzzle of a firearm point at any part of your body or at another person.

This is especially important when loading or unloading the firearm. When you are shooting at a target, know what is behind it. Some bullets can travel over a mile. If you miss your target or if the bullet penetrates the target, it is your responsibility to ensure that the shot does not cause unintended injury or damage.

Never assume that a firearm is unloaded. The only certain way to ensure that a firearm is empty is to open the chamber and visually examine the inside to see if a round is present. Removing the magazine will not guarantee that a pistol is unloaded or cannot fire. Shotguns and rifles can be checked by cycling or removing all rounds and by then opening the chamber so that a visual inspection of 6 the chamber for any remaining rounds can be made.

It is your responsibility to insure that children under the age of 18 or other unauthorized persons do not gain access to your firearm.

To reduce the risk of accidents involving children, unload your firearm, lock it and store the ammunition in a separate locked location. Steel gun safes may be more appropriate to reduce the likelihood of intentional misuse of a firearm by an unauthorized child or person. Shooting at the surface of water or at a rock or other hard surface increases the chance of ricochets or fragmentation of the bullet or shot, which can result in the projectile striking an unintended or peripheral target.

Never rely solely on a safety device to prevent an accident. It is imperative that you know and use the safety features of the particular firearm you are handling, but accidents can best be prevented by following the safe handling procedures described in these safety rules and elsewhere in the product manual. To further familiarize yourself with the proper use of this or other firearms, take a Firearms Safety Course taught by an expert in firearms use and safety procedures.

Store and carry your firearm so that dirt or lint does not accumulate in the working parts. Clean and oil your firearm, following the instructions provided in this manual, after each use to prevent corrosion, damage to the barrel or accumulation of impurities which can prevent use of the gun in an emergency. Always check the barrel prior to loading to ensure that it is clean and free from obstructions. Firing against an obstruction can rupture the barrel and injure yourself or others nearby.

In case you hear an unusual noise when shooting, stop firing immediately, ingage the manual safety and unload the firearm. Make sure the chamber is free from any obstruction or possible bullet blocked inside the barrel due to defective or improper ammunition.


Only use factory-loaded, new ammunition manufactured to industry specifications: Be certain that each round you use is in the proper caliber or gauge and type for the particular firearm. The caliber or gauge of the firearm is clearly marked on the barrels of shotguns and on the slide or barrel of pistols.

The use of reloaded or remanufactured ammunition can increase the likelihood of excessive cartridge pressures, casehead ruptures or other defects in the ammunition which can cause damage to your firearm and injury to yourself or others nearby.

The chance that gas, gunpowder or metal fragments will blow back and injure a shooter who is firing a gun is rare, but the injury that can be sustained in such circumstances is severe, including the possible loss of eyesight. A shooter must always wear impact resistant shooting glasses when firing any firearm. Earplugs help reduce the chance of hearing damage from shooting. Open and empty the chamber of your firearm before climbing or descending a tree or before climbing a fence or jumping over a ditch or obstruction.

Never pull or push a loaded firearm toward yourself or another person. Do not drink and shoot. If you take medication that can impair motor reactions or judgment, do not handle a firearm while you are under the influence of the medication.

Unload a firearm before putting it in a vehicle. Hunters and target shooters should load their firearm only at their destination. If you carry a firearm for self-protection, leaving the chamber unloaded can reduce the chance of accidental discharge. Discharging firearms in poorly ventilated areas, cleaning firearms or handling ammunition may result in exposure to lead and other substances known to cause birth defects, reproductive harm, and other serious physical injury.

Have adequate ventilation at all times.

Wash hands thoroughly after exposure. The compact dimensions and the light weight make the Beretta S pistols easy to conceal and operate. The frame is manufactured with a fiberglass reinforced technopolymer incorporating two special steel alloy rail inserts that guarantee perfect slide-to-frame fit and the optimal tilt barrel movement during the locking and unlocking phases. The innovative and patented tilt-barrel locking system is based on a direct, barrel-to-slide, engagement that does not require any intermediate components and maintains the same high degree of reliability found on Beretta’s traditional open slide berdtta.

The lock-up of the barrel is obtained by its 9000ss locking lugs engaging the slide. This system has berteta Beretta to maintain its distinctive and classic “open-barrel” slide design. The figure numbers noted below referto the photographs on pages 3, 12, 13 and Automatic Firing Pin Block Fig. Model S pistols feature a blocking manuxl that prevents forward movement of the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled.

Model S pistols have an internal spring which holds the firing pin 9000a until the force of the spring is overcome by the force of hammer fall. This feature is intended to reduce the possibility of discharge of the pistol if it is dropped. Loaded Chamber Indicator Fig. The loaded chamber indicator is a small red tab extractor that protrudes from the slide when a round berett in the chamber. The tab is located on the right side of the pistol’s slide, near the chamber, and can be both seen and felt, allowing the user to check the chamber at night by feel or during the day by checking for the increased protrusion of the red tab.

The most certain way to check whether a pistol is loaded is to pull back on the slide and visually inspect the chamber for a round. Loaded chamber indicators are designed primarily to allow noiseless inspection of the pistol to ensure that it is loaded in situations when it may be dangerous to operate the slide the action of pulling back on the slide may make noise and will begetta render the pistol inoperable or when it is dark.

The slide catch is a lever that holds the slide open and rearward after the last round is fired. This allows the user to immediately determine that the pistol does not 0900s a round in the chamber maunal in the magazine.


The external hammer allows the user to visually and mxnual determine that the hammer is cocked, mahual or lowered. Type D pistols have a double-action-only mechanism that always maintains the hammer lowered. Half-cock Notch on hammer Fig.

This allows immediate firing of the weapon without requiring that the hammer be independently manipulated.

Double action trigger pull is considered a safety feature because it allows the user to attempt to refire a non-firing cartridge simply by pulling the trigger a second time, rather than having to 900s the non-firing round before the pistol can be used again.

The length of trigger pull also helps reduce the likelihood of unintentional discharge. Simple Field Stripping and Cleaning Fig. The newly designed grip frame, made of softer materials, better accomodates and protects the hand, facilitating, at the same time, the correct grip of the pistol also under conditions of rapid fire. It also guarantees a firm hold even with wet hands.

Both sights are removable and replaceable. Read carefully the special features for the particular model of Beretta pistol you are using. Some of these features include important safety information. Model S – Type F pistols feature an ambidextrous manual safety lever. When the manual safety is engaged, the linkage between trigger and sear is disconnected and the rotation of the sear is prevented.

The manual safety can be engaged only when the hammer is in cock or half-cock position. See also following paragraph. Manual Safety-Decocking Lever Fig. When the safety lever is moved all the way upward, past the safety position, it allows safe hammer lowering.

The hammer will drop to the half-cock position and the safety lever will return to the safety position Red Warning Dot Covered Fig. This lever allows the user to decock the hammer without requiring trigger pull or lowering of the hammer by hand. A user who decodes a pistol by pulling the trigger or who lowers a hammer by hand might discharge a round in the chamber. By disengaging the manual safety pushing the safety lever completely downward – Red Warning Dot Visible it is possible to fire in double action.

Model S – Type F pistols fire double action on the first round and single action on subsequent rounds. The longer, heavier trigger pull of the double action makes inadvertent discharge less likely, while the lighter, shorter single action trigger pull allows faster, more accurate discharge amnual subsequent rounds.

The first round of a Type F model pistol may be fired using the lighter, shorter single action trigger pull if the hammer is manually cocked prior to pulling the trigger. Read instructions concerning Firing found in this manual. Manyal S – Type D pistols fire with longer, heavier double action trigger pull on every pull of the trigger.
