PX4 Compact Carry with LTT Trigger Job
PX4 Compact Carry with LTT Trigger Job
In collaboration with Ernest Langdon, The Beretta PX4 Compact Carry was developed with custom features to offer a lightweight hammer fired concealed carry gun.
Ernest has been a long proponent of Beretta DA/SA pistols for their accuracy, reliability, and safety. The PX4 Compact was a natural choice as the base of this project because of its rotary barrel design, ammo capacity and smooth trigger pull. Incorporating the stealth levers, talon grips, night sights, and a lightened trigger pull makes this flat shooting pistol an ideal concealed carry gun.

I wavered back and forth between the LTT PX4 Compact Carry and the LTT 92 Elite Compact. After contacting Ernest and getting his thoughts, I decided to commit to the PX4 Compact Carry. I am glad I did.
I purchased the MOD 5 version along with some extras, including the 92-style decocking levers, the 10# CS hammer spring, and the Boresight Solutions grip package.
The orange Ameriglo sight and plain black rear really draw your eye to the front sight, and make for a very fast target acquisition without trying to align too many dots. The NP3 treatment to the internals plus the 10# CS hammer spring together produce a DA pull is incredibly smooth with no stacking, while the OP trigger bar produces an incredibly short reset for the SA shot. The Boresight Solutions package on the grip frame was far better than the Talon grips and I have yet to feel a gummy or rubbery feel, especially here in the central Florida heat and humidity. I had the LTT team install the left side 92-style decocking lever only while retaining the right-side stealth lever, which reinforces muscle memory from shooting my M9A3.
In short this is indeed the perfect DA/SA concealed carry pistol and a fitting partner to my M9A3 with LTT trigger job.
First of all, LTT customer service is amazing. Always professional and quick to answer any questions I had while my firearm was being prepared. Then there is the Firearms that they provide. Every one of them is top notch and I have no doubt that as the options continue to grow that this level of excellence will be evident in the future.
Very good job
I've heard good things about the PX4 for a long time, but just never gave it the attention it deserves. After learning firsthand what great work they do at LTT by purchasing the Elite 92G, I decided to give the PX4 Compact Carry a closer look. I got the model with the LTT trigger job and OP trigger bar. The fit, finish and feel of the firearm are excellent. Ergonomics are great for my hands with the medium backstrap. While the sides of the grip are slick, the front and backstrap texture provide good purchase, and the included rubber Talon grip adhesive or a stipple job can make it agreeable to just about anyone I imagine. The grip angle points perfectly for me, and the action is very smooth with the rotating barrel design. Speaking of which, while the barrel lock up design does mitigate some muzzle flip, there is still a felt recoil commensurate with a short barrelled 9mm compact pistol. Still, the gun shoots great, and precise follow up shots can be made quickly. The best part of the gun, as was to be expected knowing LTT quality, was the trigger - 7.5# DA, 3.5# SA and both smooth as silk! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the sights are a little off. I've got a slide shoe coming from Brownells for my MGW RangeMaster Sight Pusher, so that will be a quick fix in short order. Nothing's perfect, but the PX4 coupled with what Langdon Tactical can do is probably as close as you can get. This one's a no brainer folks, just buy it!
Langdon Tactical has worked their magic once again. My new PX4 compact carry is an illustrious creation of goodness to say the least. The trigger is as lubricious as ball bearings on a wet glass surface and the finish and fitment are from another planet. Are you not surprised! Everything Langdon puts out is basically hand balanced and blueprinted like a fine machine. All the parts interact harmoniously and they just run! At the range it shot very accurate and to point of aim. I also noticed the nice ejection pattern it made with no wild stallions busting out of the corral and putting a hot one down my shirt. A tuned firearm with a good trigger is easier to control and much safer to handle and shoot accurately. Yes, it just makes good sense to use the very best if you can!
I have to say that Aimee and Ernest provided me some great customer service. Long story short, LTT was super cool about allowing me some flexibility on a training class I booked well before the pandemic. I ended up asking them to apply my tuition to a PX4 Compact Carry even though they offered me an outright refund more than once as I was on the fence about getting a gun. Aimee personally refunded my tuition and placed my firearm order with me on the phone. I got the fully customized PX4 Compact Carry and it shipped in literally less than 24 hours - during the pandemic. I couldn’t believe it. I emailed the LTT team to thank them and Ernest gave Aimee all the credit. Fast forward a mere few days - and I was on the range for the the first time in months - and on my 3rd or 4th Mag with the new PX4 Compact Carry, I was able to smoke the 10 yards Vickers test in 7.73 seconds with a score of 97. And I’m not some awesome marksman by any stretch of the imagination. But the work LTT did with the PX4 makes it an awesome shooting gun. Trigger and reset were impressive. The gun is, as reported, very flat shooting. LTT’s choice of the sights was spot on. My overall experience was seriously awesome (especially during a pandemic). If you are on the fence about working with LTT or picking up a PX4 Compact Carry - don’t hesitate. You won’t regret it. The only way my gun could have been better is if it came with the LTT logo stamped on the top of the slide like I saw in some of the early online reviews I was able to find. Would have been proud to have it on the slide.
