    Here's a picture of a PT-58 S I just sold they are getting scarce.

    As much as I have loved taurus products since 1985, when I bought my PT-92, this thing should be scarce.

    I've wanted one of those since I got my first PT92 in the early 90's. There's just never been one handy when I was in the buying mood, or something I liked a little better has come along.
    Maybe someday. There are still a few popping up on Gunbroker every now and then.

    ME.

    I have missed two at the local gun and pawn, very reasonable, but at the wrong time for me. I like pistols with external hammers.

    Re: Taurus PT - 58 S

    Who wants a gigantic pistol in .380?
    Ask all of the people who own Browning BDAs, or Beretta Model 84s. For a number of years, the Indiana State Police issued Beretta 84s as off-duty weapons alongside their Beretta Model 92 issue guns.

    Most PDs allow .380 ACP guns to be used as off-duty weapons, too. Try to remember that many new LEOs are on a tight budget, and .380 guns are cheaper to buy. There is also the fact that too many people think that the mini-9s have been available forever, while truthfully, it's only been in the past five or so years that reliable guns have appeared. A lot of LEOs have .380s, and aren't budgeting a mini-9.

    The gun shown is an early model. I have one exactly like it. When the PT92 went to the three-position safety lever, so did the PT58. The later PT58s used different grips that were thinner, making the pistol a bit easier to conceal. Holding 12+1, that's a goodly bit of lead in the magazine.

    The PT58 is markedly smaller than a PT92, and thinner. Weighs less, too. Yet, it's still large enough for a conventional two-handed grip, making it easily more accurate than many smaller pistols. Mine conceals well in a shoulder rig, and uses the exact same manual of arms as my PT92.

    The newer PT58s were also available in stainless.

    Aren't they about the same size as the CZ 82/83?

    Re: Taurus PT - 58 S

    I just won(bought) one on Auction Arms, but without a mag. Now I'll be looking for a couple of mags. The pistol looks kind of beat up, maybe it will serve my purposes.

    $162.01.

    The magazines are all over Gun Broker and Auction Arms. A lot of shops sell them, too. Not too long ago CDNN had them, as well. Clean it up, and shoot it. You might want to put in a new recoil spring, though.

    Re: Taurus PT - 58 S

    I found the mags on GunBroker, but I really didn't want to pay $45 for a .380 mag.

    I'm still looking at options.
