    So,
    I purchased this Italian made Centurion over 25+ yrs ago and gave it to my dad, it became his night stand pistol.
    The pistol unfortunately made its way back home to me a few months 20191119_165117.jpg 20191117_102738.jpg


    ago.
    As everyone knows, leaving something stock makes me loose sleep at night.
    The work began,
    The trigger breaks like glass, the reset has been reduced and the grips are perfect.....just need to shoot it now.

    The upgrades:
    LPA adjusable rear sight.
    Beretta Elite 2 Hammer.
    WC #12 Hammer Spring.
    LOK thing grips.
    Lots of polishing of the internals.
    The SA pull is 3.3+ pds and the DA is 6.5 pds 5x average.
    PX Storm reset mod.This simple mod reduces trigger reset by over 60%

    I've had a couple of centurions, a 92g and regular 96. They were both exceptional pistols and if the 40 had been a g model, it would still be here.
