I see one of the Sports shops that send out a monthly fly-er is selling these crazy

cheap. I know the 92 is the military contract side arm and have read some mixed

reviews about the Italian made ones are better and have less plastic parts than

the USA made ones. Dose anyone here have any personal feedback they can

share. My main interest is to shoot a lot of paper and save with the 9mm ammo

and want something that is going to hold up to thousands of rounds.

I have a Taurus PT 92 AFS and I like it alot. I’ve only put about 200 rounds through it so far and it hasn’t missed a beat. It seems to be a pretty good gun.

That would be the same gun, Being how Taurus ended up in the same factory Beretta

started their military contract in. Looks like a web search shows owners are reporting

even the parts will interchange. I am going to look into the Taurus alittlle more, you

may have turned me on this one. Thanks Jaggman !

Well, I checked out the Taurus and was expecting to see something like this.

 Instead Taurus has changed the finish to a dark matte and the ones I saw were a very

ruff texture and uneven blotchy finish. Something like this but not nearly as nice.

So I ended up shelling out the extra and have no regrets after shooting this.

This is to date the most accrurate mass produced semi auto I have ever shot. I ran PMC,

CCI, AE, Federal and Wichester and all grouped well (most 2″-3″)  but over all Winchester

performed best.

 First target is the Win USA white box stuff 115grn . 5 shot over sand bags. 25 yrds.

 4 shot cluster measures 1 1/4″ minus the last 5th shot flyer.

This taget is the same Winchester after 300 rnds of various ammo. Groups were getting

a little bigger and lower.

I purchased a Taurus PT92 used in 1987.  I still have it and it has always shot fine.  Once I broke one part rapid firing, but the parts group in Florida replaced the part for free.  I’m very pleased with the customer service too.  I have shot thousands of rounds through this firearm with no issues and it groups fine too.  This one is a South American made  firearm.

Happyness is a Hot DW and a pile of used brass!!! Rich

I was totally ready to buy the Taurus, I have had/have a few with only one small

issue on a snubby that they fixed and had back in my hands in two weeks.

Big sports shop had Taurus 92 on sale for $479 w/ 5 mags and a year NRA.

But the new finish they came out with loss the sale for me, It really was ruff,

I mean like sand paper ruff. If they were like the ones on their web site or

any of the pictures I have seen I would have bought one in a split second.

Even though the Beretta dose have a saftey block feature I much perfered the

Taurus with it’s cock and lock ability. Also the Taurus lifetime warranty is a

big plus as well vs Berettas 3 year.

 

No name bashing here, I just think they made a mistake with this new finish.

I love them all , from RG’s to DE’s and would recommend a Taurus to anyone

even though some may not because of prodution problems at one time or another

which is stone casting it self because EVERY manufacter has had it’s mistake’s.

Seriously, some people won’t touch a DW because of a past problem or a Palmer

era rumor which seem’s foolish to you and me but they are firm in their belief.

 

When I leave the house my most valuable asset Wife  is protected by a Taurus,

how’s that for a recommendation .

I have always loved the feel of a Beretta 92!  My Dad had one once but it got stolen!  It was a 9×21 which was pretty cool but ammo was a little harder to find.
