I have a older M9 ptp with the white KWA slide markings. The website show photos of the M9 ptp with black engraved markings. Are these the new slide markings?  Thanks

Yup, these are the new laser etched trademarks.

The M9 PTP is such a good copy of the real pistol I'm happy to have the white markings.

Yet you have a Beretta grip instead...

The photo was taken earlier this month in answer to "do Beretta grip screws fit the M9 PTP."  Yep, and so do the grips.  The white lettering is the giveaway for the M9 PTP especially if Beretta grips are fitted as pictured earlier.  The grips are about $15 a pair directly from Beretta is anyone would like to fit them.

Here's a quartet of M92/M9 pistols.
Top Row:  Beretta M92G and KWA M9 PTP (with stock KWA grips).
Bottom Row:  Beretta M92G Centurion (with Alimagrips) and WE M9 (sold since the photo was taken).

The M92G (Gendarmerie model) lacks a safety -- decock only.  Many of us consider it a superior design.  The Centurion has a shorter barrel I've convinced myself saves a millisecond or two coming out of the holster.  :)

Shorter barrel, non-functional safety... never heard of this model actually. You learn something new everyday.

Not to get off topic, but how heavy are those alumagrips? Do they add any extra weight to tame recoil?

The G models decock and that's safe enough.  If you don't pull the trigger the gun won't fire.  The DA pull of a M9 pistol is about 12 pounds -- very stiff.  Very unlike the M9 PTR DA trigger weight

The Alumagrips are about the same weight as the plastic grips but probably heavier.  I don't notice any differece and they're a flatter,more M1911 profile,

I have owned about every variation of the Beretta 92 series pistols and the 92G Centurion is my favorite. When I carried the M9 in service, I never used the safety. Chuck S has it right about the "trigger finger safety".
