This Beretta 96 Centurion was manufactured in the United States some time in the early to mid 1990s. It is a totally domestic pistol, made in the USA and so marked. Centurions, of course, have a 4 ¼ inch barrel instead of the full size Beretta 5 inch barrel, hence we often refer to them as Commander Size. Note the early 1990s PS Beretta Shield logo on the forward left side of the slide of this particular 96; this enhances the collectability of this service pistol. It has seen moderate, normal law enforcement use. Its only detractions are mild amounts of white streaking on sharp edges here and there: forward sides of the slide near the sight, rear sight edges, safety lever edges, slide release and disassembly lever edges, forward edges of trigger guard, center edges of frame with one small contact streak forward of the trigger guard, edges of the lanyard and butt area, edges of the hammer, and extreme rear edge of the upper grip frame flange, as the photos show. Contact evidence on the right side of that flange, and the extreme right edge of the rear sight are grainy and scratchy. The magazine and mechanism are excellent and eminently serviceable, and the bore and chamber are Excellent and clean. Magazine capacity is eleven rounds, yielding a total loaded capacity of 12 rounds; and this pistol comes with only one magazine. Double action trigger pull is smooth and consistent on this particular Centurion, and the single action trigger pull is a reasonably crisp 6 pounds. We consider this Beretta to be a strong Very Good, perhaps even Excellent, finishwise; because close to 90 percent of its original finish intact. Current replacement price on this fine pistol in our area exceeds $700; we’re offering this one, however, for only $ 389.95

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
GA Pay buyers are NOT charged until we confirm we have the item and are ready to ship it. The same thing is true for phone-in, fax-in, and mail-in payments. In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
