Had both out for some can plinking. Using cast bullets of 125~130 grain load to a moderate 1,000 FPS MV, despite both pistol having fixed sights, they shoot close to point of aim. I have also shot a Glock 17, in the past. I find that I enjoy shooting the PT 92 more. I like the feel of the pistol and its' longer sight radius. In terms of accuracy, I do best with the PT92. One favorable aspect of the Ruger is that ejected cases all are thrown to a relatively small area; in the other pistols, they are thrown over a larger area.
I had a blued model previously that did the same thing. The PT92SS behave much better.
most times shooting to point of aim has to do with of the shooter--but also the projectile weight and velocity. I think the 92 being a basic military design would shoot best with around a 124 grain projectile and velocity in the 1000-1200 FPS range.
MY 99 as well as my other 9 MM pretty much shoot dead on out to 25 yards with anything from 100 to 147 grain projectiles, not really much difference at all.

My 92 S.S. is one of the most accurate guns I own. Not that the others are bad some are really close.
My PT 92 AFS is very accurate with lead bullets. It likes the Lee 95 grain flat nose design meant for the 380. The light bullet also lets me economize on lead, which is getting ever harder to come by.

I like my PT92 better than anything in Ruger's center-fire autos as well. I've shot them all.
