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. http://www.beretta.com/pistole/series92.htm Others here will know more but you might also want to try the beretta forum http://www.beretta-forum.com

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...
