My model 92 has screws...
The M9 we used to have in the dept. property room... (once stolen from pendleton and now repatriated to the USMC...) had grip screws... although being a Marine gun.. they were magnificent screws...

Use a screwdriver. Lefty losey righty tighty.

In all seriousness, your photographic skills leave a bit to be desired and your Rolex is scratched up like a $5 wally world watch.

Looks like your Beretta 92 has Torx aftermarket screws.
