In 1976, the Beretta 92 entered into production. Since then, a large number of model variations and variants with different calibres have been produced. The Beretta 92 was adopted by several armed forces and law-enforcement agencies, such as those in Chile and Egypt. In 1985, the Beretta Model 92SB-F (also known as the US M9) was selected as the primary US military side-arm.

N Non-Government: Sources indicate that this type of weapon is held by non-Governmental armed groups.
U Unspecified: Sources indicate that this type of weapon is found in the country, but do not specify whether it is held by Governmental agencies or non-Governmental armed groups.

It is entirely possible to have a combination of tags beside each country. For example, if country X is tagged with a G and a N, it means that at least one source of data identifies Governmental agencies as holders of weapon type Y, and at least one other source confirms the presence of the weapon in country X with non-Governmental armed groups.
