    Hope I'm not thread-jacking. I see a lot of interesting discussion about the 900 family and I was wondering if the PT 38s and PT 945 are also part of this family or have differing internals.

    They are family
    I don't always open carry, but when I do I prefer DeSantis.

    When Taurus was producing 911s the fan club here was vast for years and in many ways still is.

    As an owner of the Taurus PT-92 since the early 1980's I can tell you they are wonderful. I carry mine every day as long as it is cool enough for a jacket to be worn and have carried in my belt holster from time to time. I could not even guess at this point of the number of rounds fired but to say 6 to 8 thousand over 30 or so years would seem reasonable based how often I go to the range and the number years I have owned this weapon. Now, as far as problems, there have been zero. Well, unless replacing the barrel and recoil spring last year after that many rounds is a problem. The pistol was still working fine at the time of replacement but I felt it was time since the gun goes ever where I do. By the way you can find them on GunBroker.com or use Slickguns.com to locate one at the best price. You should have no problem locating the one you want.

    Hey, speaking of the PT-911, I have requested the good folks at Taurus to look at a true PT-92 Compact model for future production. I would like to see one that keeps all the lines of the full size model including the bit of barrel overhang that makes the PT-92 so sexy. A Minnie-Me version of the PT-92 with 10 and 13 round clips would be fine as long as the 15 round magazines can be used if push ever came to shove. The magazine hanging out past the grip would not even be an issue since the 15 round and higher cap-mags would not be normally carried. So if anyone else would be interested in Taurus producing a PT-92 Compact model we need to talk it up and of course writing the good people at Taurus asking for one couldn't hurt one bit. Taurus has never been afraid to produce new pistol models and I think a true PT-92 Compact model staying true to the design of the full size would be a winner. They could even produce it in both 9mm and 380 and it would appeal even more to the ladies who love the way it looks now.

    They did make a compact 92 and like the rest of the 900s they discontinued it.

    Compact on top, regular on bottom

    As for a "Compact" version of the PT92, the PT917 was a great version of it and I wish they would bring it back.


    Blued version of the now discontinued Taurus PT917, which was a shortened version of the Taurus PT92.

    It should be noted that the Taurus PT911/915 series and later PT909, shared the Slide Assembly of the PT908.
    The design just seemed evolve larger, as the Millenium Pro Series took the PT908's place in the small Pistol market.

    Both chambered in 9mm (9x19mm)


    Blued Finish Taurus PT908, 8 shot, 9mm compact


    Taurus PT909B 9mm, 17 round Magazine Capacity, discontinued and replaced by PT809B
