The iconic Beretta M9 and 92 has been a platform that needed a modern revitalization of their respective platforms. For a long time Beretta M9 and 92 owners would seek out aftermarket companies to make their slides optics ready. Now, the Italian manufacturer is branching out and modernizing the platforms by introducing more optics ready versions from factory. Beretta has recently announced the addition of the M9A4 Centurion and the M92X RDO Compact.

The new M9A4 features include: Beretta’s Vertec frame, front and rear slide serrations, and tritium night sights. The new M9A4 Centurion has all of those upgrades and now comes optics ready. The Centurion uses Beretta’s optics plate system, which gives users five different optics footprints to choose from.
The new M9A4 Centurion sells $1,099 MSRP. Below, is the press introduction and product description from Beretta on the new M9A4 Centurion.
