The closest to this is my 92FS Inox but it is a far cry from your new beauty. I have found the Beretta slide smoother and easier than on the other semiauto's. The INOX frames are heavy as you mentioned.

Your range report should be most interesting.
I agrees with you on the smooth slide of Beretta....no other semi auto slide is smoother, in my safe, than the M9 or any 92 FS series......How does Beretta do that?

I have a 92X Centurion. It comes out of the box with most of the upgrades that I have done to my 92FS Inox and 92FS M9A1 Compact. Smooth pistol. Almost on par with my warmed over 92s. I believe Langdon has a 92x Centurion and full size offering, but not the Elite LTT. I canít wait for my Langdon Elite LTT to get here and see how it compares to my others!
By the way, I have at best a medium hand size. I put Wilson Combat ultra thin grips on my standard 92s. They fit and feel great. I really donít see much difference between the standard and the Vertec. But... thatís just me!

Can’t wait to hear your comparison between the Elite LTT and the 92X Centurion. I was so tempted to buy that 92X Centurion when it was in stock. I guess Wilson is also making a Vertec Centurion model but for a lot more than the 92X. I ordered up a couple pairs of LoK grips tonight in a couple different colors. I couldn’t decide which I liked better

I grabbed the 92X Centurion for $569 with a $100 rebate. For $469 all in, why not. It turned out to be a fine pistol. Eventually I’ll warm it up a bit, but not before I give the LTT a good range test. I’ll report out soon.

Thumb Safety Function

On some of the reading Iíve done, seems some Beretta owners prefer the F safety/decocker over the G model decocker only so they can carry with the safety engaged.

So with the Performance thumb safety, it can be engaged with the hammer down in DA mode and that prevents the trigger from being pulled DA also.

On a funny note, after a bunch of emails last night with Rob at Tucker Gunleather about making a holster for the Performance, it all ended with me enabling him to buy one of these

Me wanting a custom holster cost him a lot more than it cost me.

Nice write up! I'm a new 92X Performance owner who also owns a P320 XFIVE Legion, who - like you - got the 92X Performance on an impulse buy. I have no regrets though as this pistol just wants to do tight groups and is a pleasure to hold.

My only gripe is that I find my hands getting sweaty when holding it and I've never been one to ever have sweaty hands. That said, I prefer the standard grip over the wrap that comes with it.

I've been struggling to find a holster as this beauty deserves something gorgeous in leather. That said, I did find a ghost holster that looks awesome for fast draws, but that's not what I'm looking for.

If you find any good leather holsters in your journey, please drop me a note!

Congrats! If you are half as giddy about the 92x Performance as me then I'm sure you also don't go to bed without taking a look at its beauty!

Oh and on a separate note it features an adjustable trigger so you can tight it up to get that slop out. The tool they included broke when I tried to do it so the loctite is too strong, but once I get a new Allen wrench I'm going to try to remove the slop from the trigger.

PLEASE let me know if he makes one as I'm dying for a nice leather holster for my 92X Performance!

Mine wasn’t an impulse buy. I was wanting it since I saw the Shot Show introduction. I just wasn’t expecting to see it till next year.

Oh Yes!!! Rob at Tucker Gunleather will be making the HF1 holster for this. It’s now on the HF1 drop down menu and my order is in. The great part is that he’ll have his Performance in a couple of weeks to get it right. I ordered a left hand but a right hand is also available.
I can’t say enough about their quality and customer service. I didn’t email him till 7 pm western time and he replied within a few minutes from Texas. He asked which model holster I wanted and added it within 5 minutes. We proceeded to go back and forth about this gun for the next hour with him ending up ordering one lol.
He does carry a Wilson Combat Centurion.


Be prepared to wait, they have a 3 month lead time right now.

ronmart for the grips, I ordered a couple different colored sets from Lok Grips. G10 thin grips. They can also make palmswell grips if you desire.

Since we have the da/sa trigger in our pistols, we only have the lower adjustment screw. This screw adjusts for over travel.
When the SAO models come out, they will have the top adjustment screw which adjust the pre-travel. Beretta did an excellent job setting my overtravel so I wonít be touching that adjustment screw.

And yes, I have been dry firing and fondling this pistol every night

I picked up the Langdon Tactical Elite LTT today. Iíll make a post once I get it cleaned up. It is pretty slick out of the box.
Post some pics of your Performance when you get the new grips.

Nystan Nickel Type Finish Observation

Some thoughts on this finish. Cleans of very easily with just a wipe down. A nice soft look. Beautiful but with issues.

The issue is also why itís so easy to keep clean. This finish is very slick! The pistol always feels like there is oil coating it. Even with the very nice front and back grip checkering, the pistol still feels slick in my hands due to the finish. The nylon/plastic grip panels look nice but some G10 grip panels will be a welcome addition for a better grip. So Lok grips are on order to help with this issue.

Congratulations, and a fantastic write up! You my friend are with pistols as I am with shotguns. (Trap) I have too many but end up buying more! It is a sickness and we all suffer from it. The thing looks like a tank, and very well made. A work of art, for sure.
It also looks like it shoots pretty good as well. Now I know I have to stay away from that gun store down south.

I better add these Lok grip pics here also.
Definitely the cure for the slick Nistan finish on the pistol. Iíve now a got a very secure grip. Just the way I like it.

Lok Veloce Gray Black




Lok Veloce Blue Black




I couldnít decide which color I liked better, so I got both and using different colors for either side.

Two Face???
Due Facce???

2nd Range Day

Got the 92XP out to the range today for the second time. Squeezed off another 100 rounds of precious training ammo. So far I have only 180 rounds through her due to the ammo shortage.

I’m starting to get used to her. Actually developing a consistent 1.5” group at 7.5 yards, 1” right and 1” high. I’m leaving my sights where they are because as I get more time on the trigger, the group keeps getting closer and closer to center.

Reliability has been 100% so far shooting a mix of 115 grain fmj from Remington, Browning, and Blazer.
Shooting 9mm out of this heavy pistol has been a joy. Recoil is really not much compared to some of the lightweight 22 pistols out these days. With my old eyesight, I end up centering the red fiber optic on my target. Lineing up the top of the front and back rear sights doesn’t work for me as I can’t see the sharp edges. So combat accuracy is what I shoot for with blurry sights.

With a bit of dry firing and 180 live rounds through her, the double action pull has dropped very slightly to 6 lbs 6 oz. The single action has dropped 7 oz down to 3 lbs 2 oz. There’s still that small amount of creep on the single action, but it’s smoothed out so much that I really have to look for it while dry firing. I don’t notice it at all during live fire.

So after this second range day with Due Facce, my only complaint is the shortage of practice ammo. I can’t shoot her as much as I’d like to without burning through my ammo reserves, but I’ll be concentrating on getting used to this lady as a primary pistol.

Just an opinion of mine here.
Many times I’ve read remarks about this pistol on other forums that this pistol was developed for competition so it’s useless as a defensive pistol. I just shake my head at this type of thinking. The way I see it, if you’re using a pistol in competition it means you are shooting it a lot!!! This means that you’ve proven its reliability and you are very very very familiar with it. A persons competition pistol is probably his/hers best choice when it comes to protecting their life.
Like I said, just my opinion.
