With its tilt-up barrel and .32 ACP chambering, the venerable Tomcat has been a staple of the Beretta lineup for years. now it is finally getting the custom attention it deserves. Langdon Tactical Technology (LTT) is a custom firearms shop that specializes in creating customized, high-quality firearms, and has now released a version of this legendary pocket pistol.

The LTT Tomcat RDO begins life as a suppressor-ready Beretta 3032 Tomcat (chambered in .32 ACP). Langdon Tactical adds its LTT RDO Cut with a modified RMSc Footprint to fit the Holosun 407/507k & EPS optics, as well as the Sig Romeo, Sig Romeo Zero, Shield RMSc, and other RMSc footprint optics.

“Customers have asked us for years to work on the Tomcat, and in 2022 we jokingly released an April Fools post suggesting that we had started doing so, however it was just a joke” said Vice President of LTT, Aimee Langdon “but then the likes, comments, and messages started rolling in with thousands of customers begging us to make it a reality. Today, we have.”

Langdon’s Tomcat will include a trigger job, cut for a red dot and a rear slide bevel, along with Cerakote finishing on the slide. Additionally, the carry bevel the back of the slide to mitigate the sharp edges that often slide bite during operation and we top it all off with a basic Langdon Tactical Trigger Job that improves the smoothness and consistency of the trigger pull.

At launch, LTT will be offering the suppressor ready FDE variant of the Tomcat and accepting customer guns for custom work to add these features.

LTT Tomcats with the full custom package will retail at $649 without an optic, while Custom Gun Work begins at just $140.00. Please visit for more information on this gun or other products from Langdon Tactical Technology.
