BOTTOM LINE: The Taurus PT92 is a big gun. It’s characteristics are soft recoil, very good accuracy, and dependability.

At longer ranges, the gun easily shoots well enough for effective competitive use, and certainly well enough at any distance for self defense. As to the ability to conceal it, you know, you can conceal anything if you’re determined, but……..you’ll probably want to find something a little smaller and/or lighter for concealed carry.

Taurus intended from the beginning to make the Taurus PT92 for sale its own, building on the company’s unique strengths. One of the most significant of these is indicated in the company’s name, Forjas Taurus, which basically means forge of the mythological bull. All major firearm parts produced by Taurus are drop-hammer forged, resulting in extremely strong components. The company’s Model 92-based series is no different, with its steel slide and aluminum-alloy frame receiving the same treatment.

Its drop-hammer-forged alloy frame is significant. In many cases during handgun production, alloy parts are built from extrusions that are much more affordable to make. However, Taurus’ approach, which begins with a round aluminum bar heated and then drop-hammer forged into shape, theoretically results in a much stronger part.

The location of the manual safety is significant to the story of the Taurus PT92 for sale online best price. The earliest models featured a manual safety lever located at the rear of the frame, quite similar in operation and configuration to an M1911. Although well designed, it had no provision for decocking the hammer apart from easing it down by hand.

To enter its pistol in U.S. military trials in the early 1980s, Beretta was required to develop a decocking system into the safety of the Model 92. The company’s answer was to move the safety from the frame onto the slide, setting it apart from the Taurus PT92.
