      Difference between a centurian & a compact??

      i have a small but growing beretta collection & i'm interested in adding to it.

      i'd like to know the difference between the centurian & the compact models(9mm & .40).

      any info. is greatly appreciated.

      Compact L - Shorter barrel, slide, and more compact frame (13-round magazine capacity).

      Compact Type M - Similar to the Compact L, but has a slimmer grip that accepts only a single stacked 8-round magazine.

      Centurion - Shorter barrel and slide (like Compact), but with standard-sized frame that has a slightly shorter dust cover.

      Beretta 92 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Wow, I think I'm beating MR. BERETTA, Shipwreck, to the punch.
      I had better be correct. OK, not a problem. If I'm wrong, he will set us straight !

      Look at Shipwreck's pictures of all his Berettas.
      1. The Centurion has the Compact's short barrel and slide. 5/8" shorter. Shorter dust cover also.
      2. And it has the full length grip/mag. 15 rds. instead of the Compact's 13.

      As you can see, not really a lot of difference between regular 92 and the "Compact" version.
      Boy oh boy, I sure hope I got this correct.

      Yes, U guys beat me to the punch and gave the info out...

      Also, unfortunately, Centurions are no longer in production - the Compact has just been imported again. So, you can get a new one of those.

      I'd love a Type M, but mags are expensive. And, those are no longer in production either
