    I am not a Beretta fan, but those grips and color combo really stand out!

    Well done

    Part Two: Frame Stuff





    Differences on checkering between the M9A3 versus the 92X Centurion, both are marked from Gallatin, TN.

    Moving onto VZ Recon grip panels, Gen 1 on the left vs Gen 2 on the right. Using a Mitutoyo Absolute Digimatic caliper, the measurements were taken right above the bottom grip panel screws.

    Gen 1 on the M9A3 is 1.3510" and Gen 2 on the 92X Centurion is 1.4080."

    Gen 1



    - It has a smooth panel where your thumb and inside of your index finger knuckle rests
    - Has a smooth radius along the straight edges, thus feeling much smaller and comfortable

    Gen 2



    - Absolutely pulverizes your soft supple palms
    - Does not have a radius along the straight edges, sharp golf ball cuts extend all the way to the edges and up to the very top

    Anecdotal information: The Wilson Combat "slim" Vertec grips are thicker than the OEM 92X plastic grips and are not as textured. I was pretty disappointed at the lack of traction so I returned them.

    What is that black line on the 92X Centurion NP3 hammer?
    Do you like the WC mag guides? They look good, but do they make a difference during mag reloads?

    I really wish my 92fs had a rail. But I will manage without. (I have other "cp's") Looking into grips next.
    My 92FS, with WC fluted guide rod, 14# recoil spring, wc shock buffer and most importantly the WC 14# hammer spring, is absolutely my favorite pistol to shoot. I recently joined a range-club with steel reactive targets and my pistols are finally getting a whole lot of love. Wish they looked as good as yours. Nice pieces there contax
