More Berettas

Recommended Posts

It's no secret I like the Beretta 92 platform.  Found these 2 at my LGS over the last couple of weeks to add to my collection.

The first is a Wilson Combat Centurion with the action trigger.  This matches up with my WC full size and WC Compact.

The second is an early model 92FS from 1989 in the original box and case with all paperwork.  Just a basic 92FS with the early model grips, and it was just too nice to leave at the store.

Anyone else got some new ones to show?

I have a very early one also with the wood grips. but it's a 92F. Prior to the modification that added the S designation that I read was done after a failure during testing by the military.

I wish I had the box and paperwork too but alas it wasn't included when I purchased it.

I beleive those models as susceptible to slide cracks. I wonder if there is a collectors premium on them, even with the fault.

I don't know I've never looked into it but unless it was really high I wouldn't sell

The story I recall is that some overzealous navy seals ran them hard and got a slide to the nose when the sear pin failed. It’s hard to blame Beretta when you put 30,000 rounds of +P through a gun, but it’s harder to argue with Uncle Sam when he’s paying your bills!

Definetly would have prefered the real deal! But at the price and the near new condition, i had to take it home.. the scarcity of the compact model further inticed me to give it a warm safe home in my gun safe.  An added bonus is that it shoots realllllly nice....

    • MUCH better!!! You have redeemed yourself. 
    • Videos | wheeleraccuracy Scroll to the bottom.  There is a great video on how to find your lands.  No tools needed.  
    • I've been down this rabbit hole along with a couple of my friends, despite my warnings.   Unless you're shooting competitively or are very knowledgeable about reloading I would warn you away from things like the Ogive Comparator.  It introduces a variable that is just not that important to guys that are simply shooting paper, casually, at 300 yards.  There are plenty of ways to find out if your ammo is gonna fit with the most important being; it chambers.   It's kind of like getting a borescope.  You want to find a good deal on a perfectly fine used barrel?  Find a guy that just bought a borescope.   It's information overload. I had all the tools and have since sold them off as they were taking the enjoyment of simply reloading ammo that shoots well and works away from me.  I have a press, a Chargemaster, and the necessary components.  Nothing more as it's just not necessary to what I do.  If I was to get back in to competitive shooting, I'd probably try to get the FX auto trickler.  That's about as far as I'd go.   Good luck with whatever you decide to work up.   .  
    • Me, I'd run'em.  Load one, see how it goes.  If you don't squib, load 3 and do the same.  Nice and slow.   My guess is you'll be fine.  But as always, it's your call.
