Beretta Centurion


September 9, 2003, 05:26 PM
I recently purchased a Beretta Centurion 9mm in about 90% condition.

It came with 3 pre-ban Beretta mags and night-sights.

It shoots really great and I hope to carry it as my CCW when the weather cools down a bit.

Does anyone own the Beretta Centurion?

If so, is it your CCW?

What holster would you suggest for CCW use?


:cool: :D :p

Greeting's David-

I have owned a Beretta 92FS Centurion in the past. I
don't have one currently, but its my favorite Beretta;
that is besides the Browning BDA .380, which is also
made by Beretta. The 92FS Centurion should shoot
like a dream; not as accurate as a SIG P226, but by
far better than most DA/SA 9m/m's on the market!

I have the Beretta Centurion 92D (DAO) and it is one of my favorite guns of all time. I use it strictly for recreational shooting so I never carry it and can't recommend a holster for it. I have a hard time understanding Beretta's marketing at times as I think the Centurion is an outstanding gun.

Ala Dan, it appears we have some similar tastes in handguns. I am also exceptionally fond of my Browning BDA .380 and I believe you are a big admirer of the S&W 39 in nickel which I am as well.

Another former Beretta Centurian owner. Mine was a great pistol, accurate and reliable. The only reason I traded it in was that I decided I wanted a bit smaller pistol/lighter pistol and got a Glock 19 but no complaints with the Beretta. Surprised there are not more owners, I liked it much better than the regular 92, I know it's only 1/2 inch shorter in the barrel but it seems to make a big difference.

Right On MikeJ!

The factory nickel Smith' 39-2, and the Browning BDA .380
also in nickel are two beautiful models of exceptional auto
loader's as far as I'm concerned. While I like my SIG-Sauer
P228; cosmetically it won't compare with the 39-2 or the
BDA!:( Wish I could afford to buy 2X of each, and make
"safe queens" out of them.

I've got a 92 may only be psychological, but I find it a little easier to point & shoot than the fullsize FS.

After just a short experience with the 9mm Centurion, I must say I am impressed.

-- Shoots great!

-- Accurate!

-- Great value for the money!

-- Quality pre-ban mags available!

-- My opinion: Very under-rated firearm!

:D :what: :D
