Overview

The Taurus PT92 ia a double/single action, 9 x 19mm Parabellum, double stack magazine, semi automatic pistol manufactured by Taurus in the former Beretta factory in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The pistol is a licensed reproduction of the Beretta 92 and comes in a variety of finishes with several grip styles. Like the Beretta, the Taurus PT92 utilizes the open-slide design where the upper portion of the slide is cut away exposing much of the barrel itself.

The original PT92 was exactly like the Beretta 92 though it was unusual for the time in that it featured a squared trigger guard for supporting the index finger of the opposite hand while firing, a feature which was subsequently introduced to the Beretta 92 with the 92SB-F (92F) model in 1985. The Taurus is less expensive than the Beretta 92 in most cases.
