I have one - great gun. Use to have two, but I sold the duplicate. I still have the original one, though. My first 1 was from the one batch they made before moving the factory to TN.

A while back I put a bunch of NP3 & stainless parts on my original M9, but recently started feeling a bit nostalgic & wanted to bring the M9 back to closer to the factory condition. Then I ran across someone selling a complete LTT Elite frame. So I bought that & swapped the silver parts to it along with the 96D Brigadier upper that the M9 was wearing. Since Langdon had specced the LTT to have some of the sharp edges taken off & that Brig slide had been refinished before I decided to do a little more to it. A long time ago a Beretta Forum member called Escher did some work to polish the sides of a few slides. Iíve always liked that look, so I did that with this Brig.


My M9 came with factory grey aluminum Hogue grips. I used them with an extra steel trigger & mag release I already had when I put it back to stockish. Iíve got a hammer with the military catalog numbers stamped on the way & am on the lookout for a metal lanyard loop.

For a while now Iíve wanted to paint a 92 frame blue for some reason. Well, I decided to go ahead & do that to the 96D Centurion I just got. 

Just for the heck of it, here are the Before pics



Model: PO969DCENT
Product Description: 96D .40CAL CENT TRIT PL N/S 10RD 2MG DAO
Approximate Manufacture Date: 1995




So I stripped it down, swapped on some spare parts, got a little creative, then put it back together with parts from my Elite LTT frame & some carbon fiber grips Iíve had for 10 years.

Iíve actually got plans to use this slide for another project that should be real interesting.

This gun is liberty; hold for certain that the day when you no more have it, you will be returned to slavery.

Ah, I missed that. I only saw the levers.

So, does it work that way

You know the cuts on the slide where the hammer pin sticks up to stop the rear of the slide in case the front breaks off that goes back to the old 92? Those are in slightly different places on the Cougar & PX4. So, in order to test it, I cut down a spare PX4 hammer pin to where it does not stick up. It was a cheap part that I had an extra of already. But now that Iíve committed to the project by cutting the grip frame, Iíll probably make the cut in the Cougar slide & put in a normal hammer pin.

I wonder if anybody else has ever put a tritium night sight on a Billennium?

A while back I bought the front sight that someone took off their WC BrigTac. I finally put it onto my Billie after I got comfortable after doing it a few times. Took an empty soda can outside & put it on the ground on its side. Went back about 10 yards and hit it about a half dozen times to make sure I centered the sight correctly.  :th_thicon_idea:

Before I ever bought the gun I found a spare set of the carbon fiber grips that already had the sticky stuff rubbed off, so I put them on when I got the gun to protect the original grips. A while back I swapped in an NP3 coated barrel to protect the original from wear. I changed the hammer spring to I think a 12# from WC. I modded a set of Hogue grip panels to work with the grip safeties. They feel great, but I still love the look of the original grips. The smooth CF is slippery, but the front & back straps have the best checkering of any Beretta Iíve held.
