    Beretta 92 knuckle. How do I fix these sharp edges?

    Okay after 5 months of dry fire I donít believe the solution is to just build callouses.

    My LTT 92 trigger guard consistently tears up my my strong hand middle finger and support hand pointer finger.

    Iím hesitant to take a file to it but at this point I canít think of any other solutions. I even use tape on the trigger guard and it doesnít help.

    Any ideas?

    Or recommendations how to smooth out the sharp corners? I hate to ruin the finish on it but idk if I have another option at this point.

    Does LTT offer the carry bevel as a post-purchase option? If not I believe Wilson offers a similar service.

    Build calluses.... you should see the tumor sized calluses I have on those same fingers from the Shadow 2.

    Alternately, tape your fingers in those areas with bandage / sport tape.

    Or use Blister Block type bandages instead of tape.

    Dude I have a pea sized callous on my middle finger. Glad to know itís not exclusive to this gun. I tape both fingers every day. Gets kinda annoying when youíre dry during twice a day. First world problems I suppose!

    The real fix is a carry bevel job from LTT or Wilson. This is Beretta's fault, not LTT's. This was never an issue until Beretta's move to TN and is, IMHO a sign of declining quality.

    If your going to do it yourself I would likely use a stone and emery paper vs a file. It doesn't take much to brekd the sharp edges.

    After some time the callous doesnt even look like callous anymore. And you don't notice it as much.

    Basically it happens. Here is an instagram post I made in 2017.

    I will say like the above people, I have taken a Dremel with a stone attachment to break up various hot spots on parts of my guns and things. Itís a tool, not a showpiece. Donít care about the finish, just care about the performance.

    I get this one on Glocks, 92s and a few other pistols as well.

    Yeah I have several Berettas and none of the older IT or MD guns have sharp edges. On the TN guns I've noticed them on both the trigger guard and the tang. For clarifications all the TN guns with such issues pre-date the COVID panic productions.
