    Vertec or "Hump"?

    Until I read the thread on the guy wanting a DAO Centurian, I had no idea there was so much PB love on here. Now that I know, I gotta ask -

    Who prefers the Vertec grip and who prefers the traditional 92 angle?

    I had never tried the Vertec. So, when I went back to Beretta after a LONG break, I liked the idea of the M9A3 giving the option to have either one. I quickly found I really do NOT care for the Vertec style. Unfortunately, I also found the Hogue wrap around doesn't really make it feel like a traditional Beretta 92. It gets close enough though, so it is getting plenty of range and carry time (with the fat grip).

    Am I alone in preferring the classic 92 shape?

    No. I like the Hogue G10 checkered on the old-school grip. I have big hands.

    I think you'll find a mixed preference, with a majority preferring the non-Vertec frame style.

    I prefer the "Hump" myself, but I also went with the Wilson thin grips. I've heard that thin, Vertec grips on a traditional grip is also a nice sensation.

    I imagine that you could find your way into a pretty even trade for traditional grip, if you wanted.

    For me the traditional grip FEELS better, but it also places my trigger finger so that gets pinched about half the time. The Vertec grip does not, so I think that my return to the Beretta world will be an M9A3.

    I really thought I might like the Vertec setup, as Iíve got hands on the smaller side of the bell curve, but found the full grip to be outstanding for me. I can get better support hand purchase on my LTT than any other gun Iíve got, and part of that is the spot opened up by the hump there.

    Well you can toss the M9A3 conversion grips on if you donít like the straight back. You canít do anything cheap or easy the other way.

    I prefer the original hump back style with standard thickness grips on it. I have an M9A3 that I keep going back and forth on just leaving it as a Vertec or putting a modified conversion grip on it. I saw a 92 Vertec online a while back for a good price and bought it. Really didn't like the Vertec grip at first but I started warming up to it...after listing it for sale and setting up a deal to trade it off. I didn't like it enough to back out of the deal but I was a little bummed to see it go. I got stupid lucky on GB though as was latter able to get a NIB M9A3 for $650. One day I might get a black M9A3 and have a barrel trimmed flush with the slide to make it look like a Vertec.

    Standard, non vertec frame with LTT grips is my preference. I was ok with the oem beretta grips (not the hogues that originally came on my old 92 inox) but then tried the LTTs and they are perfect for me.
    Always listen; there is always something to be learned.

    These grips will be MUCH more to your liking than the rubber ones.

    They don't even look too bad on my tan M9A3.
