Based on the success of the Beretta 92X series and 92X RDO pistols, Beretta introduced the 92X RDO Compact handgun in September of 2021. Beretta discontinued the original 92X Compact model when the RDO Compact model was introduced.
For the most part, the RDO version is the same as the standard 92X Compact, with a few minor changes. The most prolific difference is the addition of an optic ready slide for a red dot or RMR. In addition, the RDO Compact comes with two 15-round magazines, which offers an additional two-round capacity over the 13-round magazine option on the standard 92X Compact models.
The optic-ready RDO model comes with optic covers, and Beretta includes a coupon to order one optic plate for free. Beretta offers a total of 5 different optic mounting plates that work for almost every red dot on the market.
An RDO Compact model with a red dot or optic mounted will require a gun holster built to accommodate the pistol and optic, while an RDO Compact handgun without an optic mounted needs a leather holster to fit the handgun only.
Popular holster options for the 92X Compact RDO model include:
The RDO Compact is too large for an ankle holster or pocket holster but performs well for concealed carry.
Here are some commonly asked questions regarding a holster for the 92X RDO Compact handgun:
The answer depends on whether or not the RDO version has an optic mounted on the slide. If no optic is present, the answer is yes; an RDO model will fit in the standard 92X Compact holster. However, the answer is no if an optic is present on the RDO pistol, as the optic will interfere with the holster fit.
