Beretta 92GTS Centurion

The Beretta 92 series, one of the most familiar handguns for close to half a century, is welcoming a new member to its family after the 92GTS was unveiled at the SHOT Show 2024. This week, Beretta released the 92GTS Centurion, a full-size handgun that marries several contemporary features with the fundamental design elements that have cemented the 92 series as a favourite among gun enthusiasts.

The 92GTS Centurion is notable for its frame-mounted decocker lever, a shift from the conventional slide-mounted design seen on earlier 92 models. This innovative lever employs Beretta's Twin Sear Technology, ensuring smooth operation and dependable decocking. The handgun also sports a lightweight skeletonized hammer and a DLC-coated trigger, promising a sharp and responsive shooting experience.

Drawing inspiration from recent 92 variants, the 92GTS Centurion features a Vertex-style grip for enhanced ergonomics, an optics-ready slide for straightforward red dot mounting, and a fibre optic front sight for improved visibility in dim lighting conditions.

A distinguishing feature of the 92GTS Centurion is the X-treme S trigger. This ambidextrous trigger supports both single and double-action firing, making it adaptable to a range of shooting styles and scenarios. The frame-mounted decocker lever facilitates safe de-cocking and carrying, with the first shot in double-action mode.

The standard magazine accommodates 18 rounds of 9mm ammunition, with 10- or 15-round magazine options available in states with capacity restrictions.
