Wilson Combat Lo-Profile (Single) Lever Safety / De-Cocker for the Beretta 92/96

The Beretta 92/96 series of handguns has enjoyed a hard earned reputation for reliability. I owned a beat up police trade-in 92F for years that I upgraded with several parts from Ernest Langdon that really made the gun sing. It served me all and I still regret selling it. My biggest gripe with it at the time was the slide mounted safety which was too easily bumped into the safe position when manipulating the slide in common ways. I trained around it but in the end, it was just easier to standardize on a different handgun.


Ernest Langdon is still working on Berettas though now he is doing it through Wilson Combat. One of their initial product releases deals specifically with the issue I mentioned above. The Wilson Combat Custom Carry Lo-Profile (Single) Lever Safety is a single sided lever (not ambidextrous like the factory part) and features a lower profile lever. By removing the lever on the right side of the gun and making the left side lever lower in profile, the risk of inadvertently activating the safety is reduced. A safety lever like this has been a long time coming. I wish this was around when I still had my 92F.

Wilson Combat and Ernest Langdon Create Drool Worthy Beretta 92s

If there is a man who you can trust to know how to make the Beretta 92 sing, it is Ernest Langdon. He is well known for his long time (and long discontinued) custom work on Berettas and his winning ways in competition shooting with Beretta handguns. I was fortunate to purchase several parts from him back when I owned a Beretta 92 that I picked up for a song back in my college days (I miss that gun). Wilson Combat can certainly be trusted to execute that vision.


Given the names who are involved, I was very excited to see on Pistol-Training.com that Ernest Langdon was acting as an adviser to the folks at Wilson Combat as they introduced new custom parts and services for the Beretta 92. Now if I could just scare up a good deal on a Beretta Vertec 92G to send in for some custom work, I would be a happy man.
