Beretta Compact Type M vs Glock 36 vs Springfield Compact 1911

Figured I'd post these pics for anyone curious about how these pistols compare in size... Enjoy and feel free to ask any questions

Thanks for posting those pictures.

I carry a Beretta 92 Compact Type L (double stack) occasionally but mostly find it easier to carry an M&P 9c or Glock 19. Less weight same or more rounds.

I like to carry the Beretta just because it's such a sweet shooter. Would you prefer the Glock 36 or the Springfield when it comes to a .45?

I much prefer my 36 to all my other carry guns. Compact, reliable and comfortable. All ride in CBST when carried...

Nice pic. I like that Beretta M series. I have a 92FS, the slimline looks like it would be a great shooter.

I like the look of the Beretta M also, a little beefy looking though. How does it feel to carry?

What Prez said. We consider our G36 to be as close to an ideal carry handgun as we have seen to date.

We trudge on.

Thanx for the pix. I've never seen an M in the flesh.

Didn't think so...
I owned one in the early nineties.....but like most of my firearms, I get bored and trade or sell them off to fund my next great thing...

Love the single stack 92...even if it is a chunky SOB!
Enjoy, and thanks for posting!

I don't even have a G36 and I can tell that it would be my choice out of the three!

Overall it is just thinner and lighter....am I right, OP?

Cool, my wife has the 92 compact, 13 round doublestack mags, made in Italy. Didn't know it was called type L.

Shoots about as nice as my fullsize 92FS, made in USA. But mine is better

If you can get by with just seven rounds - the G36.

Tough call between the Beretta and SA, for shooting the Beretta, for carry SA.
