Many of us who served with the Beretta 92 in the form of the M-9 left the gun with an unfair opinion of it.  As a former armorer I can verify that at least in the Army and during my service maintenance including things like replacing recoil springs was not done at intervals civilians use.  At an industry event I chanced upon Langdon Tactical Technology.  The table was lined with Berettas of various tunes and I was offered a chance to try one.  The old Soldier in me began grumbled a, “nah”, but fortunately the civil side of my brain was louder with a, “yes”.

The Langdon Tactical 92 Elite LTT is no ordinary Beretta.  More than 40 years of combined military, industry, and competitive shooting experience has gone into turning the classic 92 into a very sweet shooter.  For a closer look at what all Langdon Tactical has done to the ol’ 92 take a look at the tabletop video below.

Specifications below were taken directly from the product web page.

The Beretta 92 Elite LTT, built in partnership with Ernest Langdon of Langdon Tactical, is the ‘Ultimate 92 Package’, incorporating many features including the Vertec/M9A3 slide and M9A1 Frame that Beretta shooters have always loved.

As with all of my reviews the Elite LTT will be given the classic GBGuns treatment.  Full-mag +1 for basic function, “What’s for Dinner?” will test the gun’s compatibility with various loads, projectile types, and case materials, and a field accuracy test using Nosler Match ammunition.  The third part is mostly a chance to gather some closing thoughts on the gun.  Check back with us for the final results.
