taurus pistols are iffy some runs of em are outstanding some terrible and the whole range in between. taurus is a pure crapshoot when it comes to quality.

It was built in 1994.

I have a Tarus like the one you're describing. It's accurate, and I've yet to have a missfeed or misfire. It's easy to disassemble and clean. I love it.

Ive never heard of a genuine problem with their PT92s. My stainless one has been flawless so far. By genuine, I mean an actual mechanical defect. I'm not talking about a malfunction that is blamed on the gun because of the brand, while the same malfunction would be blamed on the shooter or the ammo if the gun were a Kimber or something. Realistically, you will not likely find any difference in accuracy or reliability between it and the Berettas.


Though unless you are really on a tight budget or are getting a really great deal on it, I wouldn't bother getting such an old, used model. At large franchises you can get a new blued one for $379 (Academy), so you could probably go to a smaller shop and get one even cheaper.

A little research will show that when it comes to Taurus - older is generally better. I'm not a Taurii fan but I've owned 2 PT92s and I actually like them better than the Beretta's because of the frame mounted safety...

I have owned numerous Taurus guns.

In order- PT92 AFS, PT 100, 24/7 full size 9, 24/7 compact 9, and a 66 in 357.

Only manufacturers defect was in the 24/7 fullsize. 6 shots out of 17 on paper @ 15 yards.

Sent it in, and they sent it back claiming they installed a new barrel. Gun shoots gnats ass since.

Per the PT92. I bought mine in 99, have run 18,000+ since then. Super accurate, bulky carry. Love it. Gave it to my wife, instead of an engagement ring(trigger guard is like a ring right......)

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

I don't think the PT92s have gotten any worse over the years, and unless there is something special about that one or it is a hell of a deal, I'd personally rather spend a little extra to get something that's not 16 years old and in 80% condition (that number is subjective, but 80% doesn't sound too good to me unless he is just talking about the finish).

My PT92 is my only pistol and I carry it everywhere except work, because I wear dress clothes. I carry IWB at ~12:30 (muzzle just to the right of my junk) with the grip facing to the right.
