    The more I see the more I like, especially the safety lever for an old 1911-shooter with short fingers. I also like the steel frame. Only concerns right now are the trigger adjustments as adjustments sometimes can be unwittingly adjusted.

    I am continually impressed by Beretta's willingness to develop the 92-series platform. A version of this set up as a carry pistol is of interest to me. I would prefer to not use the Brigadier slide based on my experience with the WC and LTT pistols.

    The hammer spring question is interesting. I figure they'd call it out as a D spring if that's what it was. But since this is a frame safety model, it probably has the single piece firing pin vs the FS/G 2-piece one. That should mean you should be able to go lighter on the hammer spring than the D because that 2-piece design takes some power out in the energy transfer between the hammer and the primer. So I wouldn't be surprised if this was some competition spec spring for this gun (/probably any other 92 with a solid firing pin).

    Ernest will be able to do some real magic on these.

    Does that answer that for you?

    Honestly, it isn't "a thing", but there are enough people picking with LimMinor to do AIWB/concealment for the experience...

    Yes, .40 is the minimum for Major in Lim & Standard. For open, it is 9mm (caliber) - so, 9Major, 38 super, etc. 9x21 isn't higher pressure than the 9mm Luger...

    Ha - yes, definitely aware of the AIWB lim minor trend, but that doesn't seem quite large enough of a market for Beretta to design a gun around. Then again, I've been hoping for a steel frame Beretta for years now so what do I care?

    I really want to like this pistol.

    But I am with Les, itís confusing.

    It looks like they are trying to accomodate both limited/standard and production divisions.

    Iíd be excited if it was a steel frame with the option of both a standard and vertec frame with a slide mounted G lever.

    Hopefully it will mean an increase in factory option parts for the 92 series.

    My guess is most of them will be in Production in a race rig. Its only USPSA that limits production to pouch style holsters. Rest of the world have the same holster rules in Standard and Production.

    Exactly. I didnít see anywhere where they were targeting limited division. Not only does IPSC allow race holsters in Production, but mag capacity is 15, instead of 10.

    As for open, a friend of mine had an open division Beretta Steel I. He placed 19th overall at open nationals with it. Thatís nothing to laugh at.

    I'm pretty sure it's DA/SA just like a CZ, just roll the hammer down with the trigger for Production.
