Wait.. You mean that isn't a super bad nono that will destroy a gun instantly? Crap. everything I learned from my dad and grandpa right down the drain.

M9A1

A. 3-Dot Sight System: Like the 92FS, the M9A1 features a white ‘3-dot’ sight pattern for quick acquisition of the target.
B. Sure, Firm Grip: The front and backstraps of the frame are checkered to ensure a firm grip in both wet or dry shooting conditions.
C. Accessory Rail: The frame of the M9A1 has a
Picatinny MIL-STD-1913 rail for rapid attachment
of tactical lights and laser aiming devices.
D. Magazine Well Bevel: The magazine well has
an aggressive internal bevel to facilitate fast tactical reloads in combat situations.
E. Sand-Resistant Magazine: Developed for the
sandy environments of Iraq and Afghanistan, this unique magazine comes standard only on the M9A1.

92A1

New for 2010, the Model 92A1 and 96A1 represent Beretta’s evolution of the world famous 92FS pistol.
Combining the best elements of the 92FS and the 90-Two,these pistols feature:
A. Higher capacity magazines: 17 rounds in 9mm. Completely interchangeable with other 92 family magazines. THREE magazines included per pistol.
B. Removable front sight: Allows the user to easily replace a damaged sight or replace it with an accessory sight.
C. Accessory rail: The frame of the A1’s have an integral MIL-STD-1913 rail for rapid attachment of tactical lights and laser aiming devices.
D. Internal recoil buffer: Increases service life by reducing stress on the receiver created by the more powerful .40 S&W caliber ammunition.
E. Captive recoil spring assembly: The single-piece design simplifies the assembly and disassembly process and minimizes the possibility of spring loss.
F. Rounded trigger guard: Updated styling to conform with current pistol gripping practices.
Thanks, dood!

The rail is reversible I tested it so if you are using a different foregrip you can mount it forward, but it protrudes out and looks to be more susceptible to breakage.

2 thumbs up on the Surefire setup. For a 40 dollar/65 lumen light...money well spent.
Found something very similar here: http://www.copsplus.com/prodnum2264.php.

Since the mag tubes on both the 870 and the Mossberg are 1 inch in diameter, I think I'll give it a shot.

One of the members of my range sent me these, taken during his recent African safari. Damn, those things are ugly!
