Taurus® PT92 9mm Semi-automatic Pistol
In 1980, Taurus purchased the Beretta factory in Sao Paulo, Brazil "lock, stock and barrel," and immediately sought to improve on the proven design. The result was the hugely popular and widely acclaimed Taurus 92. Always looking to raise the bar, Taurus has taken it a step further.
Most notable is Taurus' specially designed, drop-hammer-forged, ordnance-grade alloy frame that 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 decocking lever.
