Default beretta and taurus

Are parts, mainly grips, interchangeable between the Beretta 92 and Taurus PT92?

From what i have read they are not. I have never tried to do this so i dont have any hands on experience. Some of the more knowledgeable guys should be along soon and might be more helpful.

The current models do not, but I believe the old 92SB grips (from when Beretta had a frame mounted safety/decocker) do work on the Tauri. After all I am pretty sure it's the old 92SB mills and machines that Taurus uses to make the PT-92.

Beretta got kind of pissed when their factory that they built in Brazil got nationalized and then sold off to Taurus, so they changed the 92 design enough that most parts won't work with the Taurus.

I've had some success with parts interchangability, but very few.

Grips are mainly my concern, my wife has taken a liking to the pt92 after seeing a custom one on a site I was looking at, but custom and non stock parts are hard to find. I get her a Beretta 92 but the price is so much more and all the reviews on the Taurus show it to be equally as good in some cases better. Anyone know where I can find custom parts(stuff other than stock black) and post any custom pics you may have of your own?
