    PT92 locking block plunger has escaped

    I recently purchased a used PT92. It's my first handgun so there is a learning curve, though I did manage to bang together an AR lower with the help of a picture book, so I am educable if taught at the preschool level. Here is my issue: It looks like the locking block plunger is supposed to be held in the locking block by the plunger pin. Mine is not. It rattles back and forth, and when the gun is disassembled, it tends to fall out. I think the pin is in there, but I can't tell if it broke, or if there's something wrong with plunger.

    1. Is this something I can fix myself with common tools? Assuming I can find the parts, it looks like it would be fairly easy to replace the plunger and plunger pin. But looks can be deceiving.

    2. Is the gun unsafe or otherwise a no-go in its current state? I haven't had a chance to fire it.

    I like it, and can't wait for the 3 days of winter we get here in the South so I can try to conceal it. Hopefully the rattling bits will all be fixed by then.

    I had same issue on an old pt92 CS I bought, I just found a small roll pin and drove it in. I have lots of roll pins bought from Harbor freight. Or just go to a local HW store and size one. Oh and welcome aboard.

    Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois! Love the PT92 AFS in my stable. I wouldn't shoot it if the locking block is loose. I will look at mine in a bit and take a pic. I had my locking block crack and lock up the slide tight. Had to send it to Taurus and six weeks later got it back with a new barrel. I suspect that they had to cut the old one out to free up the action.

    I have also read that Beretta 92 parts can interchange. Someone will be along to talk about that I am sure.

    I am going to shift your thread over to Gunsmithing to attract more attention. Stop by the Member Intro thread to say hi!

    All those parts are interchangeable with Taurus models 92, 99, 100, and 101.

    Thanks for posting! That is one of the best reasons to choose a Taurus PT 92 (besides the frame mounted safety!)

    Thanks. There's a sticky thread that purports to have such a list here, but it's pretty old and the links are dead. I'd like to clean this PDF up a little for presentation and size; maybe once that's done, a mod could drop it in the sticky post so it's more readily available?

    There is also a reference to an appendix that seem to have been separated from the body of the document. Do you have that?

    I can't take the credit. I copied the three segments of the chart from other posts here on the forum. All I did was save them in one file for use because I can never remember where the original thread is located. LOL
