In 1980, Taurus purchased the Beretta factory in Sao Paulo, Brazil "lock, stock and barrel" and immediately sought to improve on the Beretta design, resulting in the popular and acclaimed Taurus 92 and 99 9mm pistols. Taurus' specially designed drop hammer forged ordnance grade alloy frame won't crack or allow the slide to come off. Other innovations include a three position frame mounted ambidextrous safety, which is more secure than a slide mounted safety, and allows for a classic SA "cocked and locked" mode, as well as functioning as a DA decocking lever. Available in fixed sight model 92 and in adjustable sight model 99, you'll be able to face any situation without compromise. Specifications and Features: Taurus 92 192015117 9mm Luger 5" barrel 1:9.84" twist with 6 grooves 17 round magazine 3-position ambidextrous safety/decocker Loaded chamber indicator Single/double action Large alloy frame with accessory rail Black checkered rubber grips Fixed 3 dot sights 5.543" tall 1.606" wide 8.5" overall length 34 ounce unloaded Blued finish. The Taurus PT92 is a fan favorite for a few reasons. One it has a large magazine relative to it's size. Also, I really love how it's safety operates, especially since I'm a gunowner that's a parent. Lastly, it has the typical Taurus reliability and accuracy. Our overall thoughts: the Taurus PT92 is great!

Taurus PT92 Features

The Taurus PT92 is a copy of the Beretta 92 in many ways.  Though it doesn’t share magazines with the Beretta or use a slide-mounted safety, the rest of the gun is a decent copy. It uses a double-action / single-action trigger, has an accessory rail for lights and lasers, a 5 inch barrel, and windage-adjustable sights.

Taurus PT92 Capacity

The Taurus PT92 ships with 10 and 17 round flush-fit magazines.  Although it was designed as a copy of the Beretta 92, Beretta’s magazines will not work in the PT92 without slight modification.

Taurus PT92 Ergonomics

Ergonomics
The Taurus PT92 copies much of the geometry from the Beretta 92 other than its safety.  Instead of a slide-mounted safety, Taurus employs a 1911 style ambidextrous thumb safety which is much easier to engage.  Its trigger is not as smooth and is heavier than the Beretta,  but the rest of the controls and outside surfaces are all identical.

Taurus PT92 Fit & Finish

The Taurus PT92 does not accept Beretta 92 magazines without making slight modifications to the magazine.  Though its parts are accurately machined, the surface finish begins to rub off rather quickly.

Taurus PT92 Concealability

Concealability
With a length well over 8 inches and a height of 5.5 inches, this gun would be difficult to conceal outside of the winter months.  Its protruding shapes and edges can cause discomfort when concealing this pistol.  The Taurus PT92 is best carried in an open-carry environment.
