    Differences Between PT 92 Slide and PT 100 Slide Besides the "Bolt Face" Diameter?

    I have a old PT 99 that I want to be able to convert to 40S&W. I may be able to find a PT 100 or 101 slide for sale but they are not prevalent and prices are starting to go up a little. Is the PT 100 slide made of slightly thicker material than the 9mm slide? And/Or Are there any structural differences in the slides that would prevent me from buying a PT 92 Slide and opening up the "bolt face" to 40 S&W brass?

    I understand I MAY need to change the extractor, slide stop, and the locking block; and of course the barrel. Mainly just asking about the slide. I have a small machine shop at my house where I do prototype work from time to time. It comes in handy for "want to" projects like this.

    If this question has been asked and answered before, please point me to the correct thread as I could not find an answer in existing threads.
    Thanks in advance for the information.

    I don't know an answer for you on your subject but I have a PT92 and have often wondered if you could take a PT 100/101 and just swap out the .40 barrel for a 9mm barrel and ream it with a 357 Sig? Would that be a recipe for some lost fingers or worse or could it work?

    well can't give a truly knowledgeable, experience answer but?
    does anyone chamber a model 92/99 or like weapon in 357 sig cartridge in a beretta/ taurus style weapon?
    I can't think of one but then again I am happy with the 9 MM in that particular weapon.
    operating pressure for the 9 MM is 35,000 PSI, even at plus P its 38,500 PSI, Nato is usually a bit lower than Plus P?
    in 40 S & W operating pressure is 35,000 PSI , and there is no Plus p ammo in that caliber.
    comparison is the 357 Sig Sauer operates at 40,0000 PSI.
    thats above any of the other chambered calibers in the 92 style weapon.
    Even the 10 MM operates at 37,500 PSI. that MAY tell you something.

    Did you search through the older threads in the PT-92 section? Seems to me someone may have owned both and did some test swapping a long time ago.

    I hope this can help

    I have a Beretta 92 and acquired a complete .40 96 upper assembly.
    It slid right on and has been working fine for years.

    Doesn't sound like the Sig round would work out in the 92/100 frames. The 92 I had didn't fully support the case and I would get a bit of a smiley on some cases even with factory ammo. Sent it back to Taurus and they said "it is within tolerances".

    Preacher Rodgers and I got together at Rapid City. He with his PT 101 and I with my PT 99. Our slides interchanged and functioned as well as my Taurus .22 LR conversion. I’ve been watching for a deal on a PT 100/101 slide and barrel, when found I will also get a 357 sig barrel.
    BTW Taurus did make a PT 957 (357 sig) who’s parts also swap with the PT 940.
