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....

Here's my 92G Elite LTT with the RDO slide.

Nice... I have an RDO slide. I've been trying to get my hands on an SRO, but every time I get notified of one in stock I miss out. Eventually I'll get one. I did shoot a couple of boxes with an optic I got for another pistol, but can't wait to get something permanent for the Beretta.

WC Brig and an old 92FS completely redone by Beretta. I was going to sell one of the two to thin out the collection and couldn’t part with either of them.   The Wilson combat cerakoting is spectacular quality.
