FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I order a gun online?

Select the options on the guns page for the firearm you want. Add it to your cart and begin the checkout process. All you need to do is enter the name of the FFL and their shipping address in the shipping field. Put your billing information and phone number in the billing field at checkout. Once the order is complete, we will contact the FFL to get the firearm ready for shipment. You should contact them once the order is complete to fill out any paperwork to alert them that a firearm is en route.

I can't find my FFL/Dealer at checkout, what do I do?

First, please contact the FFL you will be using for transfer and confirm that they are accepting transfers from online vendors - in the event that a firearm is returned to us by the receiving Dealer, the customer will incur additional freight fees to bring the firearm back to LTT and send it out to the new FFL.

When checking out with a firearm through our e-store, you should see our FFL automation system after entering your email address - it looks like this:


Enter the FFL/Dealer's zipcode, select the 5 mile option, and then select "Show FFL Stores" and select the FFL you're transferring through from the menu on the left hand side.
From there, complete the purchase as normal and we will automatically receive the FFL license, no need to contact us or have the shop contact us.
Some helpful tips with this process:
1) Many FFLs hold their FFL license under a personal or corporate name, not their DBA, or the name you may know their shop as. Because of this, you will be best served by matching their physical address with the addresses listed in the left hand menu.
2) If you still cannot locate your FFL, then broaden your search to 10, 15, or more miles to see if they populate on the list - again using their physical address to confirm that it is the correct shop.
3) Make sure you've spoken with your FFL and that they will accept the transfer - Most large department stores that have an FFL will populate on our list but DO NOT accept outside transfers.
4) In the rare event that you don't see this field while purchasing a firearm from LTT, please enter the Dealer's address and name in the shipping field.

How do I send in my slide?

Fill out this custom order form with your information including your LTT Order Number. Any slides received not associated with an LTT Order will be returned to you. Once your slide is received, it will take 3-6 weeks for your slide to be processed and returned.

If you are not having any other custom gun work performed, please send in ONLY your slide.

If you are having other work (trigger job, NP3 upgrade, etc) then you will need to send your entire firearm per the instructions below:

  1. First, follow this link: https://www.langdontactical.com/custom-gun-work-ltt-rdo-elite-optic-cut-for-your-92-slide and select your 92 type or slide model, then add the “RDO Elite Optic Cut” item to your cart and checkout as normal - be sure to make a note of the five digit Order Number you receive upon successful checkout.

  2. Print and fill your completed LTT Order Form & include it, as well as a photocopy or photograph of your driver's license with your shipment - you can also send these to sales@langdontactical.com but printed copies must be in the box with your firearm(s).

  3. Package your slide or firearm in a hard side pistol case - we recommend wrapping the slide or firearm in bubble wrap before boxing it up to avoid damage in shipping.
    LTT assumes NO liability and is not responsible for damage to poorly packaged firearms or slides.

  4. Ship your slide or firearm to LTT at the address provided on the Custom Gun Work form within 10 business days of paying your deposit fee.

     If you have any questions, please reach out to customer service at sales@langdontactical.com.

***NP3 SLIDES: If you are sending us a slide with NP3 safety levers, please add the Product Add On Fee to your cart - this covers the difference between the included black levers and new NP3 Safety Levers. New amended levers are necessary for this system.

Can you just send me the parts to do this to my gun?

No, our system requires milling of the slide and installation of proprietary LTT parts that must be inspected and installed by LTT gunsmiths for proper fit and function.

Will this work on all Beretta 92 series slides?

  This system is designed to work on 92 Vertec style slides, including the Elite LTT, M9A3, 92X, and 92A1/96A1 slides.

Do you have mounting plates for other micro red dots?

    Currently, we are only offering plates for optics that use the Trijicon RMR interface which includes the RMR, SRO,
    Holosuns, and some others that use the same mounting interface.
    Other optic system mounts are coming in the near future.

What screws are used to mount my RDO plate or optic?

The Plate to slide attachment screws are size M3-0.5mm x 6mm

  • For attaching a Holosun to the RDO Plate use: 4x40 – 5/16
  • For attaching an RMR to the RDO Plate use: 4x40 – 3/8

All Elite Optic Cut mounting screws should be torqued to 10 inch pounds using a hand driven torque wrench or torque driver.

Can I send in my 92FS (or other fixed front sight 92/96/M9) for the LTT RDO Cut?

    No – our proprietary system will only work on “Vertec” model slides at this time, and we cannot drill, tap, or mill front
    sights.

What holster support is there for the 92 with optics?

These JM Custom Kydex Wing Claw 2.0 for RDO (https://www.langdontactical.com/92-rdo-jm-custom-kydex-wing-claw-2-0/) and the OWB/Range Holsters (https://www.langdontactical.com/jm-custom-kydex-owb-range-competition-holster/) are great options for OWB and AIWB carry.

What is NP3?

The NP3 Option includes an NP3 finish on all of the metal parts in the firearm, EXCEPT for the frame, slide, and barrel. NP3 is a nickel teflon finish that adds lubricity, rust and corrosion resistance and a smoothness to all of the components. When it comes to the trigger job, it makes the DA/SA a little bit smoother.

Check out this video 'About NP3' with Carry Trainer and Ernest Langdon for a more in depth description.

I installed the Trigger job in the Bag and now I am getting hammer follow and/or my gun is firing multiple times.

Sear Spring Installation - this is the correct orientation for the Sear Spring in the Beretta 92/M9. It can be installed backwards, and it will work, most of the time, but you will get an occasional hammer follow. Make sure you install it correctly and you will have much better results.

Which Hammer Spring Weight should I choose?

Combined with our Trigger Job in a Bag kit and the following hammer springs, your DA/SA pull weight will be approximately:

  • 11# DA: 5.3 to 6 lbs
  • 12# DA: 5.6 to 6.4lbs
  • 13# DA: 6.3 to 7lbs
  • 14# DA: 7 to 7.5lbs
  • 16# DA: 7.2 to 8 lbs

On the PX4, it will be:

  • #11 DA 6 to 7lbs
  • #12 DA 7 to 8lbs

With the Single-Action will be between 3.5 and 4 lbs for both the 92/96 and PX4.

Are the 92 and the PX4 Hammer Springs the same?

Dimensionally, the hammer springs are the same and will work in the Beretta PX4, M9, 92 and 96 Series guns, however they deliver different performance. A 12# hammer spring in a 92/96/M9 would be considered a competition hammer spring, but in a PX4, it would be perfectly suitable for duty or EDC.

Why Isn't My Trigger Reset Audible or Tactile?

A: You need to get off of your trigger and stop holding it to the rear while you are aiming the gun:

Optimized Performance Trigger Bar Questions

Will the OP Trigger Bar work with the existing trigger job/trigger job in a bag I have? Yes it will.
Will the OP Trigger Bar work with the Short Reach Trigger? Yes.
Is this drop in ready? Yes. It may need to be fitted, but less than the other trigger bars we sell.
What 92's will this work in? It will work in the 92F models and later and *may* also work with 92SB's.
                                                    It will not work with the 92S, 92M, or the original 1975 Model 92.
Do I need to have a trigger job on my gun in order for this to work? No, you do not.
Is the firing pin block functional and gun still drop safe with the installation of this OP Trigger Bar? Yes.
Will the OP Trigger Bar work on a 92 Compact and Centurion? Yes.
Will the OP Trigger Bar work on the 92D? Yes, it will work, but it will not reduce the reset.
Does the OP Trigger Bar reduce pre-travel? No.

Are the internal parts from the commercial M9A1, compatible with the commercial M9? I can find M9A1 parts everywhere, but little to no M9 parts. Specifically, the barrel locking lug and associated parts.

All you need is a locking block kit. All the locking blocks are interchangeable from the 92SB to current production. Beretta made updates to the locking block but they are backwards compatible to the older model guns.

I would like a black barrel, how can I get this option?

You have to have your barrel cut & crowned to be refinished in black.

https://www.langdontactical.com/custom-gun-work-cut-crown-barrel/

Why is my new LTT hammer spring longer than my factory D model spring? And/Or I think you sent me the wrong hammer spring because it is a different size than the one I took out of the gun.

There is more to springs than just their length. Wire diameter, material, number of coils, the distance between coils and working space all play a factor. Our lighter springs are often longer than the factory springs that they replace.

Why do the Hammers sit to the left in the 92 and PX4’s?

The hammers all sit to the left on the 92’s and the PX4’s because there is a relief cut on the right side of the hammer. It’s there so that the hammer only rides in the slide in the same spot so that it wears evenly. It’s more visible on a PX4 than the 92.

If you look at the slide and you pull the slide back. The width of the hammer is centered on the pusher on the bottom of the slide.

What sights will fit my Elite LTT (or other 92 Series) Pistol?

  We have multiple sight options for the Elite LTT, M9A1, M9A3, & 92X (Vertec) slides, to include:
  - Ameriglo Spartan Night Sight Set or Front Sight Only (FS Height: ) - FS compatible with Elite LTT stock rear sight
  - Ameriglo ProGlo Front Sight (FS Height: )
  - Wilson Combat Rear Sights (.280-.310 Heights available) - These will NOT fit brigadier model slides.
  - Elite LTT Fiber Optic sight set & Fiber Optic Rod Replacements

What is the proper point of aim on the 92 Elite LTT pistols? Is it combat 'hold' or 12 o'clock hold?

  A: The bullet should hit at the top of the front sight at about 15-20 yards depending on ammunition.


Where can I find a manual for my 1301 (and upgrades)?

Is the Beretta 1301 from LTT threaded for Chokes?

  Yes! All LTT 1301s are Gen 2 Tactical models that use the Optima HP choke system.

What is the capacity of the LTT 1301 Shotgun?

  Because the Beretta 1301 Tactical is an imported shotgun, it is subject to the USC 922r regulations, which the LTT model meets through the addition of the Magpul stock, forearm & required Aridus Industries adapters.

These upgrades allow for the legal installation of the Nordic Components magazine extension, which brings the LTT 1301's capacity up to 7+1.


Are the 92 and the PX4 Hammer Springs the same?

Dimensionally, the hammer springs are the same and will work in the Beretta PX4, M9, 92 and 96 Series guns, however they deliver different performance. A 12# hammer spring in a 92/96/M9 would be considered a competition hammer spring, but in a PX4, it would be perfectly suitable for duty or EDC.

Can I register for your Advanced Class without having taken one of your previous classes?

No, you cannot, unless you are registering for the 3-Day Advanced Tactical Pistol Skills Course (The 3- Day covers the prerequisites for the advanced). My Tactical Pistol Skills Class is not a Basic course by any means. I often run into issues where people want to take this as their first or second class and they have a very difficult time keeping up. It is a very fast paced class where we do many drills that most consider advanced. Attending my Advanced Class is not an issue of skill or ability, it is an issue of understanding of the fundamentals of how and why I teach and train the way I do. I have a very specific theory of training that is addressed in detail in the standard Tactical Pistol Skills class and not covered at all in the Advanced Class. I have tried a few times to let people in the class that have "the skill" to attend, but they end up looking at me funny when I start talking about certain things and I have to go back and explain, which is a waste of time for the rest of the class.

I want to come to a class... do you have prerequisites for your course? What do I need to know how to do before I register?
