    Beretta 96 GT PS

    I recently purchased a Beretta 96G from Cabella's. It is a LEO turn in. I looked up the serial number on the Beretta site and it is listed as a 96 GT PS that was issued to the Florida Highway Patrol. I know what the G stands for and I found on another Forum (and should have guessed this) that the PS is for Police Special. Anyone know what if any is the difference in a 96 G and a 96 GT ? By the way I love th gun, I have a 92Fs that was a DOJ turn in, a great weapon also.

    The Beretta 96GT has Trijicon night sights (T- was added for the Trijicon night sights).

    Thanks CougarTex, I just received an EMail from a friend that said the same thing. Should have figured that one out for myself also.

    In 1992 I purchased a new 92 FS Centurion. Made in Italy.
    In Italy or somewhere along the way to my hands it had Trijicon night sights installed.

    The gun salesman said it was done at the factory. ? ? ?

    The rear sight is dovetailed, and has two lines white painted on its right side.
    "Trijicon" on first line. The second line has the chemical symbol for the tritium gas "TH3", then a "comma", and a "92".

    The front sight is pinned. No dovetail. Below the sight, on the "cut" right at the front of the slide are the same two white painted lines. Each less than 1/16" tall.

    The white paint must be pretty tough. It's still all there after 18 years and thousands of rounds.
    Trijicon only warrants the green sights for 12 years. Mine are still glowing.

    Too much info, eh ?
