Can you give me a breakdown of the different models of the 9x series of pistols.  Just the full size ones.  For example the centurion, F, FS, D  I know the 92,96 indicates caliber but what are the different letters?  Thanks in advance.

The FS is the updated version of the F.  I can't tell you exactly what was changed.
The D is for double-action only models.

They have several different names for different configurations that usually have some changes in the slide or  barrel length.


Others here will know more but you might also want to try the beretta forum

D - Double action only.

G - Decock only (no safety).

F - Safety/decock.

FS - This is the current model with a slide stop installed to prevent the slide from flying off and hitting you, in the event of a slide failure (like the incident with the SEALs).

Centurion - Shorter slide w/ flush mounted barrel.

Brigadier - Beefed up slide

Inox - Stainless steel.

Compact - Centurion w/ smaller frame (13-rounds).

Type M - Singe stack version of Compact (8-rounds).

As mentioned above, the FS was a 92F modified after an accident occurred to SEALS.

TO remark the point, the Seals were using +P+ 9 mm. ammo intended for UZIs... the NATO 9mm. doesn't not erogate high pressure like the ammo for smgs...

See ya...
