Hoping that they make the six week mark for both. The Rossi has been there for about four weeks.

    Darn!

    No, your record is still solid...that might be a 20% return rate.

    WHEW!
    Thank Goodness, I really, really didn't want to go out and buy more to try and keep my record!--------
    I am down to 7 now, Two 24/7 Pro D/S and a TCP in the safe, and four 1911's that are now running fine, no need to open another can of worms.

    Again, sorry I'm late to the discussion.

    My PT92 is on it's third, and last - so far, Locking Block, which happens to be a Beretta second generation locking Block, coupled with a Wolff 15 lb Recoil Spring. Yours seems to have died quite a bit early, as 15,000 rounds is supposed to be typical life span for a Locking Block. Note that on my second Locking Block, the Taurus Smith had to cut the barrel out of the frame and slide, to get it apart. That's been the only time my PT92 has been sent back.

    Also strangely, I've read of PT92 owners here who have NEVER changed out their Locking Blocks or Recoil Springs and am at a loss to explain that, assuming they are actually shooting on a semi-regular basis.

    I don't suppose anyone remembers my FAQ on PT92/99/917 Locking Blocks. Taurus PT92/99/917 Locking Block Life

    My PT99 is 1989 manufacturer and has a minimum of 15000 rounds through it and I've never had any problems. Where would I find a replacement and how expensive is it? Maybe I should swap it out before I have an issue.

    I inspect mine each time I truly clean the gun (300 to 500 rds). I haven't seen any signs of stress anywhere. Does anybody have a picture to show how and where they break?

    What am I missing? I watched the locking block instructional video and he says that you need to push out a roll pin in order to remove your locking block. I didn't think that was true...Sure enough I pulled out a PT92 and I can jiggle the block out with all ease. Same thing with a PT100. Is the Beretta design slightly different and won't allow it? I'd love to know.

    Nope! The Beretta Locking Block will also come out without removing the Plunger Retention Roll Pin. In fact, the Barrel Assemblies between the Beretta 92/M9 and Taurus PT92 can be interchanged with ease.

    I sure do! I'm on my 2nd locking block, and got mine from EFK Fire Dragon & also got the Wolff 15 lb recoil spring. Feeling fortunate I was able to get mine out without a trip to Miami. Mine didn't show any signs of damage before it just went. One thing I did notice is mine would fall out easily when cleaning, maybe this was a sign of things to come. My replacement doesn't do this.
