Good news everyone! Wilson Combat has announced that they are now converting Beretta Brigadier Tactical pistols to have the same frame profile as a Vertec frame. Now for the bad news, the only way that you can own a Beretta Brigadier Tactical Vertec frame is by buying the complete pistol from Wilson Combat.


The limited run of Wilson Combat Berettas with the Vertec frame will set you back $1,495 if you decide that your collection absolutely needs one of these beauties.


As one would expect from Wilson Combat, a close up of the conversion reveals some pretty high-quality work.

Here's the what Wilson Combat said in a press release:

We are now offering the Wilson Combat®/Beretta®Brigadier Tactical 92 with a Vertec-grip frame conversion. This conversion, performed by Wilson Combat® reduces the size of the frame to the significantly smaller Beretta Vertec size which is ideal for shooters with smaller hands or who prefer the straighter, more 1911 style grip.

Our skilled gunsmiths reduce the grip frame to Vertec size, checker the backstrap to match the front and complete the process with a frame refinish in matte Black Armor-Tuff™. This pistol comes standard with indestructible Black Cherry G-10 grips.

Some features of the limited production Wilson Combat®/Beretta® 92G Vertec/Brigadier Tactical include steel ambidextrous decocker-only levers (G model), enhanced Brigadier slide, a modified M9A1 style checkered frame with accessory rail and rounded trigger guard. This model also features enhanced accuracy with an “Elite” style match grade stainless barrel with recessed target crown, the action features a 13lb Chrome Silicone hammer spring for lighter trigger pulls, and Trijicon dovetail tritium front sight and Wilson Combat rear sight. Wilson Combat® G-10 grips, Wilson Combat® steel guide rod and numerous other features to enhance performance. The 92G Vertec/Brigadier Tactical slide is finished in Beretta® black Bruniton with Armor-Tuff™ frame and marked with the Wilson Combat® logo and specially serialized to ensure its place in Beretta® history.

Although the 92G Vertec/Brigadier Tactical has been optimized by Beretta® to meet the needs of high round count tactical and competitive shooters, further customization and finish work is available through Wilson Combat®.

“Being a serious Beretta® collector, I have always considered the 92G SD the best model ever produced, but almost too expensive and rare to shoot. I feel fortunate to have been able to work with the fine people at Beretta® USA to produce a pistol that, in my opinion, is an improved 92G SD. Having Beretta®USA build my dream 92 series pistol is awesome and I’m very happy that a lot of people will be able to enjoy this fine pistol model.” -Bill Wilson
