Limited Edition Beretta 92 Centennial

Beretta 92

Beretta’s first semi-automatic pistol, the Model 1915, was introduced 100 years ago. In commemoration of that, the company is offering a limited edition collector’s version of the company’s iconic model 92.

The Model 92 Centennial is a functioning firearm with design elements from the original 1915 pistol. The gun is a single action pistol with a frame mounted safety. Grip panels are made of a premium grade wood and have a Beretta logo medallion in the center of them. The years 1915 and 2015 are engraved on both sides of the pistol.

The pistols come in a specially designed ammunition can that bears the Model 92 Centennial logo. Beretta did not release an MSRP on these limited edition pistols.

    TAKE IT ALL, EVEN THE MONEY I DON’T HAVE YET.

    I can’t reach the trigger effectively in DA, so a SAO 92 really speaks to me.
    But not for the price of a collector’s edition.
    I want the function, not the fluff.
    Never gonna happen though.

      I dont know if it’s still in their product line, but Beretta was offering the Stock model, functionally like this one, just more geared to be a range queen rather than a safe queen.

  • Beju

    I’ve never been a Beretta 92 guy due to my stubby fingers, but damn if the look of that doesn’t make me want to reconsider.

  • Frank

    Make that double action and that level a decocker, then make it a production gun. They’ve needed to do that for over 30 years.

    • john huscio

      If that happened, I’d probably get the first one off the line

    • Vhyrus

      They do make those, except they say “Taurus” on the side.

  • Lance

    Looks pretty!

    When I was in the Air Force we had an M9 that looked similar to this pistol in our armory. It had a high gloss finish and wood grips. I believe it was for the Wing Commander. It looked like it had never been fired so maybe it was just for ceremonies.

  • Squirreltakular

    Okay, so why can’t we have a producton version of this thing instead of the M9/92fs and its awful trigger pull and ridiculously inefficient safety? I’d buy that.

    • Dan Atwater

      They totally should, and it would sell. That said, a 92G with factory steel trigger and D-spring fixes your complaints.

  • Bill

    What they need to do is bring back the 92D. It’s smooth, slick running and has the legendary armorer’s trigger job (1911 length mainspring) from the factory. I have a Centurion version that I picked up as a PD over order and wouldn’t part with it for love or money.

  • Randy

    I like the 1911 style frame safety lever and direction of throw. Grips are nice, too.

    The M9 in the armory probably was a ceremonial firearm for show, like for the dining in or out functions, or change of command ceremonies when a General Officer was in attendance. Many Security Police armories hold a treasure trove of by-gone era firearms be it Colt
    (GAU-15, M-16 configurations from straight semi, or burst to even full-auto option), Smith & Wesson (Combat Masterpiece M-15) or Beretta (M-9). When the full-auto M-16’s were replaced with the burst model many years back, I was told by the courier the full-auto models were being shipped to Israel. Do not know if there is any truth to this, but it made for nice conjecture while we retained the 3 round burst models instead. One thing is for certain. Do not mess with the Israeli military…everyone who is capable is a Soldier and they kick *ss!!!

    • Anon. E Maus

      Given that the US sent a ton of old M16 rifles to Israel as military aid, yes, that’s true.

  • Jared Duet

    Talked to my Beretta rep today. MSRP is 3,995

    • FourString

      sigh.

    • It’s cool, but NO!

  • Alex Pei

    Those billboard letters ruined it. Still, I may consider getting one of these if the price is right…otherwise I might as well get the Wilson 92G.
