Had to return my 99AF to the factory as the Locking Bolt broke (again)...the last time it happened they sent me two. This time I had to send the pistol back. It took just over two weeks...which is quite good IMHO.

I shoot moderate reloads and never "hot dog" it as I have other calibers to do that with. I use cast bullets and moderate powder charges.

The 99AF has adjustable rear sights....had two faikl on me where the right side of the blade would break off...seems the metal is too brittle. Taurus replaced both for me.

Many bash the company...I've had issues with Rugers, Remingtons, USRA, as well as with Smith & Wessons....Taurus did right by me.

Glad they took care of you and quickly.

I keep my locking blocks well oiled on my 4 PT-99's, knock on wood, I have not had one fail yet. My 1983 PT-99 has 10's of thousands of rounds fired. I do a visual inspection of the block every time I clean the guns.

I will try that. I had been using grease, but maybe I need to use oil instead...Thank you!
