The Taurus PT92 is a double action/single action, 9mm Luger, double column magazine, semi-automatic, short recoil action pistol manufactured by Taurus in the former Beretta factory in São Paulo, Brazil.

This pistol is a licensed reproduction of the Beretta 92, and comes in a variety of finishes with a variety of grip styles. Like the Beretta, the Taurus PT92 utilizes the open-slide design where the upper portion of the slide is cut away exposing much of the barrel iself. The original PT92 was exactly like the original Beretta 92, however recent improvements include a magazine catch mounted behind the trigger guard, an ambidextrous safety that also acts as a decocker when pressed down past the "fire" position, and larger 3-dot style sights. The Taurus PT92 is less expensive than the Beretta 92 in most cases.

The Taurus PT92 has undergone many revisions in design since it was originally produced in the mid-1980s. The original PT92 and PT99 did not feature the third safety position decocker that is now standard; this feature was added to the second-generation models in the early-1990s, which also included the three-dot sights found on the Beretta 92F. A third revision in the late-90s changed the grip and slide design (which now has fewer grooves in the rear). More recently (as of 2005), Taurus has begun manufacturing the PT92 with built-in accessory rails on the frame, a feature found on the Heckler & Koch USP and third generation Glock pistols. While 15-round magazines were standard for the PT92 for many years, Taurus now manufactures 17-round magazines for the gun in order to give it comparable firepower to the Glock 17.

I jus bought one of these last week and i love it 17 rd mag which by the way is a pain to load after the 10th round until u get the spring in the magazine broken in but other than that not a misfire or anything great gun for playin and protection the only downfall isnt in the gun tho its the ammo 9mm rounds seem to be becoming harder and harder to find and expensive too i mean come on 17 bucks for 50 rounds its good to actually kill something but for jus play shooting a .22 is a better choice but that has nothing to do with this great weapon its the damn lawmakers assholes anyway so yea i won the taurus pt92 to blast some dumbass that tryie to kick my door in but for play shootin and hunting smaller animals i got my walther p22 its a geat squirlle and coon roller

Own one

To many rounds to count have gone thru mine and many good memories to go with them . Would and have staked my life on this piece. I used to carry it for work on a daily basis, she isn't pretty but she always goes bang when i pull the trigger.

I own a Taurus pt92 and i made the huge mistake of replacing my factory grips with some fancy aftermarket ones. Well the aftermarket ones did nit come with bushings for the screws and my old ones (not thinking I would need them) got thrown away. I have searched high and low across the web and CANNOT find new grip screw bushings. I can find screws all day... No bushings. My problem is without the bushings I have two choices tighten the screws down to where my mags wont release or go in properly....Not happening.... Or I leave them as I have and they back out after every 5 shots. Please all I want is to put my old grips back on and to have some damn bushings and factory screws to do it properly. Any help from any Taurus owners that may have replaced theirs and still have the original screws and bushings??? Willing to pay for shipping and cost of parts.
And @ RETIRE-IN-ARIZONA I have owned both weapons and have never had my Taurus jam up on my even after well over 2500 rounds shot through it. The beretta... lets jus say I dont own one anymore.
