I just bought a 92 FS.

This is my very first semi automatic pistol. All i have ever owned in my life is revolvers. so im totally new to this type of gun.

Now that i have the weapon what are the first steps i should take when i remove it from the box.

Should i clean it? Oil it?

Is there somewhere i can go to get a tear down manual that might go into further detail on oiling and such.

Any information would be appreciated.

Blast every square inch of it with gunscrubber or something similar. The grease that it ships with is not regular lube. It is similar to cosmoline and can gum up on you if left as is. As far as tearing it down completely I'm sure you can find something online.

As others have said break it down as the owners manual says. Remove magazine, flip breakdown lever, remove slide, recoil spring and barrel. Clean everything really good with Hoppes or Breakfree. Then slightly oil everything with gun oil an place a drop on the tabs as indicated in the owners manual. Then you are ready to shoot. The PT92/99s are really fine firearms and will last you for many years.

Congratulations on your choice of the Taurus PT92 pistol!

In my opinion, there's not a better built or more accurate 9mm handgun around for the money spent; and the lifetime warranty on the gun makes it a really great buy.
