My PT 92 took a dump on me today. Had it just a little over 2 month. It had about 500 rounds of usage. After about 35 rounds, it stopped ejecting Taking it apart, look what I found.:icon_ cry:



This is not the actual bolt block photo (got it off another forum).

Guess it is back to the Miami. I have never had any dealings with them before. Hope they can give me a quick turn around.

Ouch.

There are two kinds of Beretta and Taurus owners-those who have cracked a locking block, and those who will.

If possible, see if you can order and replace the locking block yourself. It would save you three odd weeks of PT92 withdrawal symptoms.

That is a shame, Taurus will have you fixed up shortly.

Actually they could have just sent you a new locking block, it just takes seconds to replace.

If properly lubed they'll run forever, if left dry during high volume shooting they tend to break.

It'the same with the Beretta 92 series.

If the problem solely involves the locking block, just send this failed component to Taurus, and they will send you a replacement part free of charge.

(This isn't merely hearsay. This is what a Taurus CS representative told me during a telephone discussion I had with him. He also said I could purchase a spare locking block right over the phone for $25.00.)

Not to commit heresy, but the improved Beretta block is supposed to fit the Taurus. You might be able to grab one of them locally. Keep them lubed.

The improved Beretta block does fit the Taurus. I replaced mine with the Beretta and have the Taurus as a spare. Mind Taurus block had not broken. The plunger will need to be replaced and the block initially is a pretty tight fit but settles in nicely after some firing of the weapon. Costs about $36 from Beretta.

Not a bad idea at all to buy a spare block, whether it's a Taurus or Beretta. It's the fatal flaw in the design, but pretty easy to replace.
