Frequently Asked Questions

Why Langdon Tactical?

Langdon Tactical Technology (LTT) was founded on the realization that shooters shouldn't have to choose between reliability and quality for their EDC, competition, or duty firearms.
We start with production guns and put in the customized work that manufacturing cant recreate to enhance the overall shooter interface and experience.
From a smoother, lighter, and more consistent Double Action (DA) & Single Action (SA) trigger pull produced by our legendary trigger job, through state of the art coatings (NP3), and industry leading tech advancements (RDO) we are revolutionizing what custom firearms can be.

Langdon Tactical is Custom Without Compromise

Why DA/SA?

The philosophy behind DA/SA (Double Action / Single Action) pistols for concealed carry or duty use, stems from the longer, heavier (DA) first trigger pull, which acts as a natural safety that can aid - along with good training and trigger discipline - in the firearm only being discharged intentionally, at the proper target, while under duress.

Watch below for an explanation of the differences between DA/SA and striker fired pistols:

What is the Langdon Tactical Trigger Job?

The LTT trigger job is a custom service for Beretta 92s and PX4s, as well as Springfield Armory XDE series pistols that delivers competition performance without compromising reliability.
Our gunsmiths polish, stone, and upgrade numerous parts in the firing mechanism to achieve a smoother, lighter, and more consistent trigger pull and shortened reset.

The Beretta 92 Trigger Job includes:
- Polishing & Stoning on all interacting trigger mechanism parts
- Upgraded Optimized Performance Trigger Bar
- Upgraded Chrome Silicon Hammer, Trigger Return, and Sear springs

The Beretta PX4 Trigger Job includes:
- The Beretta PX4 Competition Trigger Group
- Polishing & Stoning on all interacting trigger mechanism parts
- Upgraded Optimized Performance Trigger Bar
- Upgraded Chrome Silicon Hammer, Trigger Return, and Sear springs

The Springfield Armory XDE Trigger Job includes:
- Polishing & Stoning on all interacting trigger mechanism parts
- Upgraded Chrome Silicon Hammer, Trigger Return, and Sear springs

Don't want to send your gun in? We also offer Trigger Job in a Bag kits that can be installed by a competent gunsmith closer to home.

What is the Langdon Tactical Carry Bevel?

The Langdon Tactical gunsmithing team begins every Carry Bevel pistol by hand stoning & polishing the hard edges and snag points on the 92 frame & slide, upgrading the internal magazine well bevel, and improving the trigger guard radius.
We then include our NP3 Upgrade and Trigger Job, to dramatically improve corrosion resistance, life span, and lubricity of the action throughout the pistol, as well as user interface with the firing mechanism.
Finally, the Carry Bevel is finished off with a full re-cerakoting of the slide and frame.

Are all Elite LTT 92s from Langdon Tactical?

The short answer is "no" however it's a bit more complicated than that:
The Elite LTT 92 series was developed in collaboration between Ernest Langdon & Beretta, seeking to create a semi-custom 92 without the time and expense of a fully customized pistol.
While ALL Elite LTTs come with a plethora of upgrades that are not found on other 92 series pistols (a marriage of Vertec Slide and M9A1 frame, front slide serrations, radiused trigger guard, etc) only Elite LTTs sold by Langdon Tactical (or our authorized dealers) have the LTT Trigger Job, NP3, or Carry Bevel work.

If you want to confirm that a specific Elite LTT 92 has Langdon Tactical work, please email an image of the gun box barcodes to contactus@langdontactical.com - we will check the barcodes against our records and let you know as soon as possible!

  • Cut off times might be adjusted with or without notice
  • Drivers might arrive earlier or later than originally projected

HOW TO: How do I send in my slide?

If you are sending in your slide for RDO Cut ONLY, please pay for the RDO solution (here: 92 or PX4) and ship your slide to the address on the Custom Gun Work Order Form (here).
If you're sending in your firearm for RDO cut IN ADDITION TO other custom gun work, please pay the Custom Gun Work Deposit (Here), and then fill out the Custom Gun Work Order Form (here).

For RDO work only, please expect a lead time of 4-8 weeks, additional custom work MAY increase this lead time by 2-6 weeks, depending on what custom work is ordered.

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

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

  1. First, pay the Custom Gun Work Deposit (Here) and determine if you would like LTT to provide an inbound shipping label, or prefer to ship yourself - upon checkout you will receive an order confirmation number, keep this handy as you will need it in step 2.

  2. Complete our online Custom Gun Work Order Form & include a copy of your confirmation email with the firearm, as well as a photocopy or photograph of your driver's license.

  3. Package your slide or firearm in a hard side pistol case - we recommend wrapping the slide or firearm in a single layer of bubble wrap with one or two pieces of tape 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.
    Please do not send your magazines, optics, holsters, or other accessories. At this time we do not install optics.

    If you are ordering the NP3 upgrade for your firearm and want NP3 Magazines, they can be purchased on our site (here).

  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 - Order's That Are Not Received in this Timeframe will Forfeit The Full Deposit.

     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 - the RDO Solution for the 92 requires the installation of G-Model Decock levers; there is no F-Model Safety Option available with this upgrade.

See below for some helpful hints on what NOT to do when sending in your gun or slide:

DIY: 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.

COMPATIBILITY: 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.

   Please be aware that our RDO slides are fully cerakoted, meaning they may be slightly tight on first install.
  Normal cycling of the slide through use will wear in the cerakote.

MOUNTING PLATES: 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.

OPTICS: What Optics have the RMR Footprint?

A:

Q: What red dot optics fit the RMR Footprint?

    • Trijicon RMR
    • Trijicon SRO
    • Holosun HS407C
    • Holosun HS507C
    • Holosun HS508T
    • Riton X3 Tactix PRD
    • NcStar VISM FlipDot Pro
    • Swampfox Kingslayer

Some customers have reported the the Jagerworks SRO Shroud will fit on our system, however we have not confirmed this. Customers using this or other shrouds that add height between the adapter plate and the optic should be aware that they MAY or MAY NOT need longer/taller screws to get full thread interface - LTT does not carry longer screws.

PARTS: 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.

WATCH: Slide to frame fit on 92 Series pistols with Red Dot Ready Slides

COMPATIBILITY: Will the LTT RDO cut work on my 92/96FS / Brigadier / 92X Performance / Other 92 variant slide?

Our RDO solution will work on most 92 Series pistols with vertec style slides, however there are some exceptions - please read below for more details:

 Q: Can you do the RDO on my 92/92 FS slide?

A: No; The top of the 92/96FS slide is slightly taller than the Vertec slide. The CNC program and the adaptor plate is only set up for the specific height of the Vertec/Elite LTT/M9A3/92A1 slide.

 Q: Can you do the RDO cut on my Brigadier Slide?

A: No; The top of the Brigadier slide is slightly lower than the top of the Vertec slide. The CNC program and the adaptor plate is only set up for the specific height of the Vertec/Elite LTT/M9A3/92A1 slide.

 Q: Can you do the RDO Cut to my 92/96 D, 92/96 D Vertec, 92X Performance, 92/96 Combat, 92/96 Stock?

A: No; These models do not use a slide-mounted safety lever and therefore have a different firing pin. We do not make a firing pin that works with these model pistols.

Q: Why wont the RDO slide work on my 92A1 frame?

A: The 92A1 frame is different in the recoil spring area, specifically there is a bushing in the frame and a larger nose/dust cover that impacts that bushing in recoil. The standard slide, like the Elite slide, would damage that bushing in the 92A1 because it would not contact it correctly.

 Q: Will the RDO cut or Red Dot Ready Slide work on my 92X Performance?

A: Our RDO Cut will not work on the 92X Performance due to the brigadier slide, and frame mounted safety.
    The Red Dot Ready Slides do fit and function on a 92X Performance, however neither the frame mounted nor slide mounted safety/decocker will function AT ALL.
***LTT does not assume any liability for injury or damage that results from use of an RDO slide on the 92X Performance without a functioning safety/decocker.***

HOLSTERS: 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.

Yes, please see the video below:

HOW TO: How to Properly Mount your RDO/RMR on your Elite RDO Slide

PX4 RDO SOLUTION: Common Questions

Q: What PX4 models will the LTT RDO Solution work with?
A: Currently we're able to cut only full size PX4s, however a compact solution is coming very soon. The subcompact PX4 is too small to accept our RDO Solution.

Q: Is there a night sight option available for my PX4 RDO Front Sight?
A: No. The LTT RDO Solution for PX4 uses a proprietary front sight design that functions specifically with the built in rear sight on the adapter plate.

Q: Can I maintain my rear sight dovetail/have a new dovetail cut into the slide with RDO Solution?
A: No. There is not enough space for the original or a new dovetail once the slide is cut to accept our optic adapter plate.

Q: Can I still have the original LTT PX4 Red Dot Solution utilizing Glock MOS plates installed?
A: No. We no longer offer the original PX4 RDO Solution.

Q: Are the adapter plates interchangeable between my 92 RDO and PX4 RDO?
A: No. While the adapter plates are very similar, they are not identical or interchangeable - however you can change adapter plates between the full size and compact PX4 RDO.

The Trigger Job In A Bag will fit the following Beretta pistols, black and "Inox" Stainless versions.

ABOUT: 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.

WATCH: Which Trigger Job in a Bag options should I choose?

Aimee & Shelby explain all of the TJIB options below:

TROUBLESHOOTING: 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.

TIP: 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
    Please keep in mind that below 13# on a 92 series pistol, some primers may not ignite reliably - 12# and 11# hammer springs should only be selected for home-loaders and seasoned pros.

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.

COMPACT & CENTURION: 92 Elite LTT Compact and Centurion - Common Questions

Check out this video for help in deciding which gun and options you might want!

What is a Centurion? It is a modified Full size frame made to fit the compact barrel and slide

Gun Features: Exact same feature as the Elite LTT full size except, the Centurion has the Full-size grip with a compact slide. The Compact has the compact slide and grip.

Barrel length? Both of the barrels are 4.3” with a target crown, we can cut and crown the barrels flush to the slide with a 20-degree target crown.

What parts are interchangeable?
Centurion: All the same parts that we carry are interchangeable with the full size LTT EXCEPT barrel, guide rods, and recoil springs
Compact: All the same parts that we carry are interchangeable with the full size LTT EXCEPT barrel, recoil springs, guide rod, grips, mag guide, and flush hammer spring cap

What grips fit the Centurion? It uses the same grips as the standard full-size 92.

What holsters can I use?
Centurion: It can use the full-size or the compact holster. It will fit both.
Compact: The compact will also fit in most full-size holsters, or designated compact holsters

Can I swap my compact slide onto my full-size 92 to make a Centurion? No, the frame is different on the compact and centurion to allow for correct slide travel with the compact slide.

Does the Centurion take the same mags as my full-size 92? Yes.

Will the TJIAB fit the Centurion and Compact? Yes

MAINTENANCE: Recommended Maintenance and Cleaning for Beretta 92 series pistols:

Beretta 92 Maintenance schedule from Ernest Langdon:
Recoil springs should be replaced every 5,000 rounds (10,000 for Chrome Silicon springs).

A full top end rebuild and detail clean should be performed at 10,000 rounds (especially if you dry fire a lot) as well as replace the trigger return spring and trigger bar spring.
The LTT Top-end Rebuild includes the firing pin, firing pin plunger, firing pin spring, firing pin block, extractor, & extractor spring.

The Locking Block should last to 20,000 rounds, however we normally recommend replacement at 15,000 to be on the safe side, as waiting until the block is completely worn out can lead to frame damage, and sometimes lead to a completely locked up pistol.

This recommended maintenance schedule will serve to keep the gun running 100% for the longest time possible.

DUTY HOLSTERS: What Duty holster Can I Purchase for my 92 Elite LTT?

The US Duty Gear holsters on our site are set up for use with the 92 Elite LTT, and we have options for 92s with or without the RDO.

The Safariland Model 6280 LASD 7201 (with a weapon mounted light attached - not compatible with RDO Slides).

Any holster designed for the M9A1, M9A3 or Vertec will work with the Elite LTT.

CARRY HOLSTERS: What holsters work with the Elite LTT?

We have many holster options for sale on our Holsters page, including:
IWB:
JM Custom Kydex - Wing Claw 2.0 & RDO Wing Claw 
5 Shot Leather - SME Appendix IWB Holster
Palmetto Leather Works - 92 Pinnacle IWB Holster
OWB:
JM Custom Kydex - Range/Competition Holster (compatible with RDO equipped 92s)
Phlster - Floodlight (Either IWB or OWB, fits 92 & PX4, Compatible with RDO equipped 92s) - must use weapon mounted light

For left handed options, as well as other light and fit options, please visit our holster partners directly.
 
Any holster designed for the M9A1, M9A3 or Vertec will work with the Elite LTT.

COMPATIBILITY: 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.

MAG BUTTON: Does the Elite II mag button you offer work as an extended release with the thinner grips?

Yes.

TRIGGER WEIGHT: What will the LTT Trigger in A Bag bring my DA/SA Pull Weight to on my 92?

With the following hammer springs, your DA/SA pull weight will be approximately:

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

COMPATIBILITY: Will the Trigger in a Bag work in my Wilson Combat, my M9A1, M9A3, etc gun?

Yes. The Trigger Job in a Bag with work with any Beretta 92, 96 and M9 models, including the 92 Compact.

BARREL: My barrel in my 90-Series pistol is not centered in the slide. Is this a problem?

A: This is a normal and common condition on 92 Series firearms; it does not affect function or accuracy.

Frequently, our technical division receives inquiries from concerned consumers, stating that the end of the barrel on their Beretta 90-series pistol is not centered in the end of the slide (as depicted below). Owners are often worried that this feature is a defect, and/or will negatively impact accuracy or safe function. Fortunately, this is not the case.

This feature is a normal characteristic of a 90-series pistol. The barrel is secured in to position by the locking block design, which, in turn, holds the barrel firmly within the slide when in battery. However, the orientation of this mechanism often results in the barrel resting off-center within the assembly. This condition does not have a negative impact the accuracy, nor does it negatively affect the functionality of the firearm. Some pistol designs employ the use of barrel bushings (such as in a 1911) or other component, which often results in uniform parallel alignment between the barrel and slide. However, 90-Series pistols conspicuously omit these features.  

Subjectively, this feature may render the firearm less than aesthetically pleasing, however, no corrective action is necessary. Notably, heavy usage will often result in a somewhat oblong or rectangular wear pattern in the parkerized/anodized finish of the barrel, manifesting at the point where the barrel contacts the side of the slide, or along the barrel top, where the “bridge” maintaining the front sight post rubs along the barrel. This can be maintained by oiling the barrel with a moisture displacing lubricant, as is routine in firearm maintenance. Doing so will prevent the barrel from developing rust. If the consumer wishes, the barrel may be re-finished as needed. However, this is typically at the cost of the consumer, and the wear pattern is likely to re-develop during normal use.

Models affected include, but are not necessarily limited to:

92FS, 92A1, M9A1, M9A3, M9 Commercial, 90-TWO, 92X, etc.

All 90-series pistols are proven designs that meet military, law enforcement and commercial requirements for reliability and accuracy. However, if the need for gunsmithing services remains/becomes evident, please contact us at 1-800-BERETTA, ext. 2003. Please have your serial number prepared.

DIMENSIONS: What are the height and width on the 92 Elite LTT sights?

  • The height of the front sight is .220 inches from the base of the dovetail
  • The width of the fiber optic rod is: .055 inches
  • The height of the rear sight is: .290 inches
  • The rear sight notch width is: .150
  • The Front Sight post is .110 inches wide

AMMO: Will +P 9mm Ammo work in the 92 Elite LTT?

Yes, +P Ammo will work. Many folks ask us about +P+ Ammo, we don't know because that ammo is not rated and often times, different, therefore, we cannot say.

TRIGGER RESET: 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:

TRIGGER BAR: 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.

LOCKING BLOCK: 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.

BLACK BARREL: 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.

HAMMER SPRING: 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.

ABOUT: 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.

SIGHT COMPATIBILITY: 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

POA/POI: 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.

SAFETY: Can you install a single side safety/decocker lever to my Elite LTT?

No - the single side safety/decocker lever does not work with vertec slides, which includes the Elite LTT series.

BARREL PORT: Who ports the barrels we see on your Social Media pages?

The barrel ports are done by Performance Pistol Works: https://www.performancepistolworks.com 

We are not affiliated with this company. We do get a lot of questions, however, so we want to send you their way. If you have any questions, please contact them directly.

ABOUT: Do I need a holster? Which holster should I get?

  Before choosing a holster the first question you need to answer is whether or not you can legally carry in your state or locality, as well as what rules or licensing is required.  
If you are planning to carry, you need to think about the situation and environment you plan to carry in:
Are you planning to carry while shooting recreationally on a local range or while hunting/camping?
Are you planning to compete with your pistol?
Are you carrying your pistol for self defense?
Will your pistol be equipped with a light or red dot optic?
Each of these situations calls for a different holster set up - give your personal situation some thought, and then choose the holster(s) that best fit your needs.

HOLSTER TYPES: Do I need an IWB or OWB holster? What's a duty holster?

IWB refers to Inner WaistBand carry - with an IWB holster, you will be carrying concealed, with a holster designed to fit inside your pants and under your shirt or coat.
Kydex IWB holsters are generally considered the best choice for concealed carry - most IWB holsters use passive (level 1) retention.

OWB refers to Outer WaistBand carry - with an OWB holster, you will be carrying openly OR concealed, with a holster designed to ride on the outside of your pants, attached to your belt, sometimes covered by a shirt or coat.
OWB holsters are very popular for hunting, camping, range use, and competition - many, but not all OWB holsters use passive (level 1) retention.

Duty Holsters are OWB holsters that are typically ruggedized for hard use, usually they are designed to fit on a duty belt (thicker and wider than a daily use or carry belt) and feature Level 2 or Level 3 retention options.

DUTY HOLSTERS: What Duty holster Can I Purchase for my 92 Elite LTT?

The US Duty Gear holsters on our site are set up for use with the 92 Elite LTT, and we have options for 92s with or without the RDO.

The Safariland Model 6280 LASD 7201 (with a weapon mounted light attached - not compatible with RDO Slides).

Any holster designed for the M9A1, M9A3 or Vertec will work with the Elite LTT.

CARRY HOLSTERS: What holsters work with the Elite LTT?

We have many holster options for sale on our Holsters page, including:
IWB:
JM Custom Kydex - Wing Claw 2.0 & RDO Wing Claw 
5 Shot Leather - SME Appendix IWB Holster
Palmetto Leather Works - 92 Pinnacle IWB Holster

ABOUT: What is the LTT 1301?

We took the Beretta 1301 Gen 2 Tactical Shotgun and upgraded multiple components including:

  • MagPul Zhukov Handguard
  • Aridus Industries Stock Adapter
  • MagPul Stock
  • Nordic Components Mag Tube Extension Kit (does not include the QDC Sling Mount)
  • Nordic Components Enhanced Magazine Tube Follower

With the option to add:

  • Aridus Universal QDC Side Saddle
  • Aridus CROM Mount Rob Haught Version - Aimpoint and RMR

These upgrades are beyond mere aesthetics, and deliver functional benefits like adjustable LOP with the Magpul Stock, MLOK accessory attachment points on the Magpul Zhukov Handguard, and improved capacity & feeding with the Nordic Components Tube Extension & mag follower.
The optional QDC side saddle or CROM Mounts from Aridus Industries round out the LTT 1301 options to bring you the ultimate 1301 Tactical package.

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

CHOKES: 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.

MAG CAPACITY: 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.

SAFETY: Is the 1301 safety reversible for left handed operation?

Yes! The 1301 Safety is reversible for left handed operation.

LTT can take care of this for you during a 1301 upgrade job, or on a new 1301 ordered from LTT.

If you already have an LTT 1301, a competent local gunsmith can also swap the safety for you.


COMPATIBILITY: 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.

ABOUT: 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.

COMPATIBILITY: Will the PX4 Trigger Job in a Bag work in my subcompact?

No, the PX4 TJIB will work in the PX4 Full-size and Compact. You can send your subcompact in for us to do a trigger job on the firearm itself.

CLASS REGISTRATION: 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.

PREREQUISITES: Do you have prerequisites for your courses? What do I need to know how to do before I register?
