I'm thinking of buying a Beretta 92FS. But recently read a review on the Taurus PT92, a clone of the Beretta. Has anyone had experience with Beretta vs the Taurus ? I'd appreciate your input and recommendations.
HahaI don't have experience with either so I'm a perfect internet gun advisor but based on reputation alone I'd buy the Beretta. If I were going to buy a 9mm it would probably be a Beretta 92F. The only Taurus I have owned was a 38 Spl Mdl 83 and it was a decent revolver but was starting to loosen up some when I traded it. I doubt if I had more than 1,500 rounds thru it.
I think this recent post you made says it all:I'm thinking of buying a Beretta 92FS. But recently read a review on the Taurus PT92, a clone of the Beretta. Has anyone had experience with Beretta vs the Taurus ? I'd appreciate your input and recommendations.
Shoot revolvers and don't worry about it.
Taurus' claim of improving the Beretta design by putting the safety on the frame is false advertising. It's actually Beretta's old design before they changed the design & started putting the safety on the slide.The Taurus models (pt92, pt99, pt100,101..etc...) from what I have read are great pistols as well. They have of course, the Beretta design. They also have a big improvement as well-- the location of the safety lever!
As I said before, I love my Beretta, but I am not in love with its safety location-- trying to shoot it in IDPA, I have fumbled with its upward fire location. I recently purchased a 1911-- and the first time I shot the 1911 in competetion, I pressed UP on the safety--- as I would with my Beretta--- and of course, that isn't good for 1911's-- as it engages the safety and I couldn't fire it!! (I only did this a few times before I figured out what I was doing-- I'm a little slow some days... )
