I ordered a PT101 AFS from Auction Arms.com... checked last nite... should be getting it later this week (I hope )

Just wanted to see what ( if any ) problems people have had with this gun so I can be prepared....

Would appreciate ANY feedback on this one...

Thanks

It should be fairly accurate and reliable gun...Only thing I can think of is that the gun was designed for 9mm and may not last as long as 9mm veriants...

I'm not sure about PT101 but I know Beretta 92 and 96 both use the same recoil spring -13lbs. So might be a good idea to get a heavier recoil spring say around 15lbs... Also if you plan to shoot it a lot I'd get a new design Beretta locking block (as a spare)...

I used to have a PT101AF. It was junk!!!
Just kidding. I loved it, but really wanted something cheaper to shoot, so I sold it
and got a PT99. I think you'll be real happy with it. I remember the gun you bought. It's already your avatar, right? Looks good.

If its anything like my PT-100, it'll be devastatingly accurate. I think its more accurate than my Beretta 96 was. Enjoy!

I've owned a PT-101 for several years. Blued, and have had zero problems. Quite manageable recoil, and accurate. I've put over 1000 rounds through it. :D

JR,what weight,type and brand of bullets/cartridges do you usually shoot through it.

I just bought a used PT101 in stainless for $350 in new shape and put it on layaway.

I can't wait to take it to the range.

I too was going to ask you what type of ammo you used... for

1) practice

and 2) in the carry mode....

Any help would be appreciated...

Thanks

Sorry that I took a couple of days to get back. I have been using 165 grain #23970 Speer Gold Dots for carry, and Fiocchi #40SWA 170 gr. FMJ for practice. I bought a couple of cases of the Fiocchi back in 2000.

Velocities are about the same, +/- 10 fps, and the FMJ is 5 gr. heavier.
