    Pt99

    I have a PT 99 that the top right of the barrel is rubbing on the slide, Is this something I can fix, or does it need to be returned back to Taurus

    It would help considerably, if you would post a pic of the wear area.

    There is normally, some finish wear towards the end of the Barrel, where the Slide stops, and this may be normal finish wear.

    Well, the way the thing is designed, there WILL be contact between the barrel and the slide in the places you indicate in the photos. There is metal-to-metal , barrel-to-slide when in battery, for full lockup. That is just the nature of firearms of this sort. Then, after the slide begins to move rearward in recoil, it will likely rub on the barrel somewhat. Again, just the nature of the creature.

    These are incredibly well engineered and designed pieces of art, not merely tools or machines, you know. But there will be places where there will be metal moving on/against metal, and the finish will show it. Nothing wrong, just the way it is, they all do it from the most well tuned S&W to the roughest Jiminez. Glocks & HiPoints do it as well..

    Now if it were a big, single-line gouge, deep and rough, there would be a problem for fixing, but if it isn't any worse than your pix show it to be, shoot, enjoy, and look upon that area of altered finish as just another beauty mark, I suppose.

    Looks like the outside of pretty much al my semi-auto barrels, it's just that a 92/99 is going to show it off more than others due to the open slide design. The only one that isn't really noticeable is my 945 because the entire pistol is stainless, so you don't notice the scratches down the length as easily as the ones that are blued.

    Other than a visual check of the alignment of the locking block on the barrel, I don't think there's much you can do to prevent it. But if you want, you can call Taurus and see if they'll cover the cosmetic defects and check the clearance specs to possibly replace the barrel and slide to get it back to original.
