Introducing the Protector Series and the 92G Vertec®/Centurion Tactical

Berryville, Arkansas — January 17th, 2018 – (ArmsVault.com) – Wilson Combat® is excited to introduce two new models – The Protector Series and The Wilson Combat®/Beretta® 92G Vertec®/Centurion Tactical.

The Protector Series – MSRP $1999.95

The Protector Series AR carbine and pistols from Wilson Combat® have been designed from the ground up to offer true rifle performance in a Tactical AR package. The heart of every Protector is our Wilson Combat® Match-Grade precision button rifled barrel-renowned in the firearms community as one of the most accurate AR barrels on the market that is mated to a Black Nitride treated Mil-Spec bolt carrier group with MPI inspected Carpenter 158 bolt for impressible long-term reliability.

Using a CNC-Machined, Mil-Spec forged upper and lower receiver set, the Protector Series AR carbines and pistols are lightweight and fast handling. The free-floating and rugged Wilson Combat® M-LOK® handguard has a slim, ergonomic profile that has ample rail and attachment surface and shields the black nitride finished non-adjustable gas block. Our durable and low-signature Armor-Tuff™ coating is individually applied to the receiver and barrel for a professional and practical, custom style finishing touch.

Our Wilson Combat® Match-Grade, precision button rifled stainless steel barrels are tested for accuracy and finished off with our Q-Comp muzzle device that provides excellent recoil control without exacerbating blast back to the operator. The Wilson Combat® exclusive 2-stage Tactical Trigger Unit is utilized for a trouble-free, superior, crisp trigger pull every time with a modular construction that simplifies takedown and cleaning after high round count training sessions.

The 92G Vertec®/Centurion Tactical – MSRP $1495.00

The Wilson Combat®/Beretta® Centurion Tactical is now available with a Vertec®-grip frame conversion. This conversion, performed by Wilson Combat® gunsmiths reduces the size of the frame to the significantly smaller Beretta® Vertec® size which is ideal for shooters with smaller hands or who prefer the straighter, more 1911-style grip.

Our skilled gunsmiths reduce the grip frame to Vertec® size, checker the backstrap to match the front and complete the process with a frame refinish in matte Black Armor-Tuff™. This pistol comes standard with indestructible Black Wilson Combat® G10 grips.

The 92G Vertec®/Centurion Tactical features all-steel Beretta® and Wilson Combat® custom parts. Some features of the limited-production 92G Vertec®/Centurion Tactical include steel ambidextrous decocker-only levers (G model), Centurion length slide, a modified M9A1-style checkered frame with accessory rail, and rounded trigger guard.

The 92G Centurion Tactical ships with two 17 and one 20-round capacity magazines. This new model also features an Elite-style, match-grade stainless barrel with a recessed target crown for enhanced accuracy and an Ameriglo “Hackathorn” high visibility dovetailed tritium front sight paired with a Wilson Combat black battlesight rear.

The 92G Vertec®/Centurion Tactical also features Black Wilson Combat® G10 grips, Wilson Combat® Mag Guide and oversize mag release and other custom features to enhance overall shooting and tactical performance. Like all Wilson Combat®/Beretta® collaborations, this model has factory optimized action parts and improved slide to frame tolerances. Additional custom services are available for the 92G Vertec®/Centurion Tactical.

Although the 92G Vertec®/Centurion Tactical has been optimized by Beretta® to meet the needs of high round count tactical and competitive shooters, further customization and finish work is available through Wilson Combat®. Possession of the pistol must be taken first, no further customizations can be done prior to shipment.
