I purchased a Beretta 92 Blackhawk serpa holster and it fits but the trigger guard must be just a little thicker as the lock will not engage. I do know i can drop a Beretta barrel in though.
I got lucky with my PT92 as it has been nothing but reliable but after reading all the hit or miss stats of Taurus i will not be trying my luck with them again.Really sucks cuz their prices are really reasonable but oh well.
