Beretta Centurion M9A4 4

Beretta said, “new phone, who dis?” to SHOT Show this year, declining to appear with its family of brands that include not only the Italian gunmaker but also Benelli, Franchi, Steiner, Tikka, and Sako.

However, they did apparently plan to drop two new optics-ready versions of the 92-series 9mm pistol, a shortened Centurion variant of the M9A4, and the Compact 92X RDO. Both use Beretta’s new enhanced short-reset Xtreme Trigger System with DLC coated fire control and a short-reset trigger in a frame that carries a Picatinny accessory rail and a Vertec slim grip.

While Beretta says they are available with five different plates for red dots, the coupon that comes with the gun is only good for a choice of one, so choose wisely.

Beretta Centurion M9A4 5

The Centurion M9A4 model is just like the full-sized M9A4, just a little shorter. It has a “G” series (decocker-only) slide and is suppressor ready with an extended, threaded barrel. It also has 18+1 capacity magazines. The ask is $1,099.

Beretta 92X Compact RDO 5

The new Beretta Compact 92X RDO is an “F” series gun with a safety/decock lever, and, as it is shorter in both height and length than either the standard 92X or the 92X Centurion, it only has a 15+1 magazine capacity. Price is $729.
