Slide and barrel are either made of carbon steel or stainless steelThe hammer of the model is a half-cock safety system. These were completely made of steel, including the frame and other parts. One specific feature of this model is definitely the 'tip-up' barrel. The barrel pivots, were designed under the muzzle so the chamber can be easily loaded with the slide in the closed position. It makes better and simplifies loading, unloading and checking load status, as the slide is quite difficult to retract by hand. The Beretta M9 A3 was designed without any extractor.
