Handgun Review Of The APX RDO Centurion and 92X Centurion


My friends over at Beretta loaned me a couple of their star entrees to test and share with my students to get their feedback. I wanted to wear a test, for comfort with their holsters, put a few rounds downrange, and play around with these two firearms before having my students dry fire them, do simulated stoppage drills, with dummy rounds, and finally live fire and qualify with them. I felt it would be doing a disservice to Beretta and my students if I didn't put these guns through their paces before I could expose my students to them. Over the course of several afternoons, I have been able to get a feel for both of these fine guns. I understand how they shoot, have a good feeling for the fit and comfort, and how I would conceal these packages.

I am an NRA Certified Basic Pistol Instructor, a State of Illinois Concealed Carry Instructor, and a Federal Firearm Licensee (FFL).  So needless to say, I come in contact with a lot of guns on any given day. I see the firearms my students bring in for basic pistol training, or to the concealed carry classes on range days, and I am privy to what my customers are buying, as an FFL. There are so many good brands out there. And most times, I'm envious of the newest shiny thing that's shipped to me when I unpackage it. What can I say? I love guns.

Beretta Pedigree

With 150 years of firearm production under their belt, they are bound to have superior manufacturing capabilities and precision mechanics. The Beretta website asserts that today Beretta produces some 1,500 firearms a day! This impressive feat covers over-under and side by side rifles for hunting and competition. This also includes semi-automatic pistols in every caliber from .22 to .45 cal. and every imaginable finish along with semiauto assault rifles.

How They Fared At The Range On My Trips

Both guns performed as expected at the range, with no malfunctions and very accurate. I shot both guns at 5, 7, and 10 yards. I would put my targets up against anyone's. I am a decent shot, and having great tools highlighted that skill.

 


My overall reviews are positive after students used these two guns in class and after carrying and shooting at the range. I am a fan of the brand and these two guns. They shot straight and true, the recoil management was superb, and the hand fit and feel on both were good, even though they are very different. They were well balanced and cycled well without incident.

 Parting Thoughts

As a reformed "Plastic Fanatic," I must say I was genuinely surprised at how much I loved the 92X. This beauty has upset the apple cart for me. I enjoyed shooting it, I got used to the excess weight and heft, and I got good with the exposed hammer and SA/DA action. As I said in the video, I want one! I enjoyed the APX RDO Centurion also, just not nearly as much as I did the Beretta 92X Centurion. See full review here at PewPewGuru.com.
