All my M41s and M46s are gone.

All my High Standards are gone.

All my Rugers are now Volquartsens.

All my Hammerlis are still Hammerlis.

I agree. The 208 is a wonderful gun. My original concern was that the Xesse would be sufficiently less somehow as to make an acquisition not make sense. I have a couple Ruger Marks (in my case Volquartson), Buckmark and a S&W Victory, and had got the impression the Xesse trigger was closer to those, which although can be worked on to make pretty nice, didn't really interest me. OTOH, if it is a true 2 stage, similar to a 208 S, then I would be pretty interested in trying one.

Let me point you to Beretta's own description:

"87 Target: .22 LR Target Pistol for Practical Shooting Matches"

at: http://www.beretta.com/en/87-target/

Practical Shooting Matches use tactical guns, I believe. I don't remember this in much earlier advertising but at least they are honest about it now. Now if we could just get them to give the correct weight of the gun (about 30 ounces vs a claimed 40 ounces).
