I expect this one to be a tad smoother with a bit lighter trigger. It will be interesting. The 92s I have are great shooters for me and pretty silky after I tuned them up a bit.
I look forward to hear your thoughts on a comparison on them.

Beretta Billennium

Found the older Beretta with the frame mounted safety.
Webpage say copyright 2009 so Iím guessing somewhere close to that for the year. It also uses the Brigadier slide. I never saw one of these before.

Beretta 92X Performance Production Standard

A few more pics.

Pretty generous magwell built right into the frame.




Stock 15 round mags come with thick base plates.




Mec-Gar 20 round mag.




Beretta 30 round mag.




Pistol came from Beretta drenched in oil, inside and out. Iím still constantly wiping it down lol.
Triple serial numbers coming out of Italy.
No idea what the IT20 in front of the serial number on the slide means.




Now I need to figure out a holster for her.

Beautiful! I've had one on back order hopefully my name comes up soon. It's about the perfect handgun for me. The 92 platform is my favorite, I love my Langdon's and my Wilson's but this one is just about perfect. Congrats!!

That was my grail gun till the performance came out. I still prefer the standard grip profile over the Vertec but the new trigger is just too nice.

Hopefully you get it soon. I think youíll be impressed by it. With a bit of dry firing last night and today, the SA pull has dropped down to the 3.5-3.6 range.

I watched video on this today. Beautiful pistol. Prices are up there for it. But a 7 lbs SA pull!!! Iím sure that can be fixed.
The included wrap around grip panel should give you the standard grip profile you like.

Iím toying with the idea of ordering a blue LOK grip for it. The plastic pebbled surface on the stock grips are ok but I do like aggressive grip panels.

Great mag well, and more great pics.
By the way, I have found leather 1791 Gunleather holsters work great with my 92s. Including a 92X Centurion which is probably a close fit to the Performance.

Looks like Red Hill Tactical already makes holsters for them. Iíll keep looking for other options before I make any decisions.

Great looking firearm. I've always looked at these, but just can't seem to find the reason to pull the trigger on one.

If you run across this model, donít pull the trigger or youíll pull the trigger. The old style Beretta never fit me and never cared for them. The newer Vertec frame ones feel quite a bit different and this version just did it for me. I also like the M9A3 and 92X Centurion models.

Thereís an all black M9A3 at the toy store that I need to avoid.

I'm afraid that you may be right! I have so many pistols at this point, with the overwhelmingly majority being Sigs, I fear that I will add another pistol on an impulse buy, which is something I really want to avoid!

I know the impulse buy thing. Thatís how all those Sigs followed me home this year.
But this one has been on my must have list since I saw itís Shot Show introduction.
My Legion P226 SAO RXP was a consolation prize till this showed up.

92X Performance vs Legion 226 SAO RXP Range Comparison

Hit the range today to compare these two pistols and get more time in with my 225-A1 and tryout the 229-22.

For this comparison I had my friend and RO J alternate shooting these pistols with me and see where they are hitting. Also J is a much better pistol shot than I am.

Sights, we both love the red dot on the 226. Me especially so as his eyes are younger than mine. The red fiber optic on the 92XP actually worked pretty good, but itís hard to beat a red dot. Advantage 226.
Holding the sights steady was easier with the 92XP due to the pistols weight. An advantage for my shaky hands.

Trigger, we both love the 226 trigger due to it resetting directly at the wall with no take up or creep. With the 92XP J noticed just a hair of take up after reset with an almost imperceptible amount of creep, just as I had noted earlier. Between the two J liked the 226 SAO trigger better. But his first shot with the 92XP got him by surprise, even though both SAO pull weights are identical at 3 lbs 6 oz. We both think that the creep in the 92XP will disappear with more shooting. The 226 had a little creep at first but disappeared after 200 rounds. I had J try the DA pull on the 92XP and he reacted by saying wow! Overall we both agreed advantage 226 on the SAO trigger for now, barely.

Reliability, both pistols functioned 100%. The 226 now has 245 rounds through it and the 92XP has 80 rounds through it. Advantage - tie.

Which one did we favor? J chose the 226 SAO RXP Legion. He liked the weight and feel and especially the Romeo 1 Pro red dot. But he also liked the Beretta and commented that heíd never seen a 92 having issues at the range.
Me? I love the red dot on the 226 but I am strongly favoring the 92XP. That 48 oz chunk of metal really helps me hold the sights steady. At least long enough till I start getting tired lol. I love that I can easily run the slide with just two fingers from below. So smooth and light feeling. I canít do that with the 226, I have to overhand that one. I also shoot accurately with the DA pull on this one even though itís a stretch for my fingers. I think I have a new favorite 9mm pistol here!!! Iím going to have to set aside some solo time for this Italian beauty.

On a dangerous note, Iíve been able to handle the Langdon Elite LTT and the Wilson Brigadier Tactical at the toy store. Between the two, I preferred the third option of the 92X Centurion because of the Vertec grip. Also I thought the 92X Centurion has a pretty decent trigger. Looks wise I loved the Wilson because I really favor the looks of the Brigadier slide. A Brigadier Tactical with a Vertec frame could be something Iíd lust after. Danger Will Robinson!!! A quick peak at the Wilson site this morning shows that he now offers a Wilson Combat Vertec Brigadier Tactical !!! I just want his green grips on it instead of the black cherry. Hopefully I can afford one next year.

Hereís a pic of a Target I had J shoot with both pistols back to back. 6 rounds with the 226 SAO RXP and 8 rounds with the 92XP. 7.5 yards using Remington BB/LE Training 115 grain fmj. Need to adjust the 92XP sights down a little.
