Years ago, I had a PT99 which I shot weekly at the range. I couldn't begin to guess at how many thousands of rounds went through it. This was easily one of my favorite guns.

I don't remember ever having to adjust the rear sight in any way.

Now that I'm back in the market for a new one, I'm wondering if anyone has really felt the 99 had an advantage over the 92. Is it worth paying the extra cost for the 99?

I'd appreciate your thoughts?

Thanks!

Donald

Looks to me like there is only about $20 difference in the 2. And the main difference is fixed vs. adjustable sights.

paulrabe has it right.. usually only about 20 bucks difference in the guns, and the only functional diference is adjustable sights.

target shooting you might like the 99 better.. personally i like the 92 better the sights while difficult to adjust if you needed to.. the sights actually can be moved but i woud'nt know where to begin.. but i like'em better because as long as they are accurate (mine was from teh factory) i dont have worry about them being bumped out of alignment and also if you carry it not as much to snag on.

The advantage to adjustable sights comes with distance, and the various manufacturers weights and velocities of ammunition. The disadvantage is that they can be knocked out of the settings is you hit them hard enough. For defensive use, the ranges tend to be within 25 yards, and the average sight picture given by the fixed sights seems to be sufficient. ;D

I can bring up the satisfied links of the users here and at TFL and THR gun forums, but there isn't space for that. Though enough can be brought out and published here.

Several staff have these,either model , who have put all kinds of ammo through them and those 92/99s are still ticking right along.

BUUWAAHAHAHA! :devil:
