Q. What's better then a new PT 92AFS?

A. TWO OF THEM!



This would be my second and third Taurus respectively. First one I had was a Judge and it served me well enough while I owned it. (Sold it to finance my wifes engagement ring.) However, in regards to the magazines I have having two issues.

The first pay only load up to 16, and then are really hard to get to 17. I get them in, and then it becomes REALLY hard to put the magazine in. So is 17 + 1 out of the question?

For the second batch, of two magazines, I can only get 15 rounds in, then the problem persists. Only this team if I load them up to 16, one becomes really hard to push in, (like the other two) and the second one doesn't get into the gun at all. Like the feed lips are out of spec. These two magazines do the same thing to both guns.

Now I owned a Beretta 92FS (the second gun I sold to finance that ring. ;) ) and I realize that magazines are a problem. Are the magazines that come with the gun covered under warranty? Is my issue normal? Also, I am looking into purchasing more magazines, are the mec-gear magazines just as good as factory Taurus? Let me know guys.

The last round is always hard to get in on new magazines. Nothing wrong with the magazines they just need to be used

See? You're smarter already. Others say load the mags full and let then set for a week. I can't wait that long, I'll just load one short. The mag will loosen up after a while. Meanwhile I'm shootin'

Is what I am seeing normal though? Rattle is ok? Only being able to load 15/16 is also alright?

The springs are new and will break in. The rattle is a P.I.T.A. My PT-111Mil. rattles, too. None of my other semi-autos rattle, but the 111 does when full.

You could play El Mariachi portrayed by Antonio Banderas with that pair of pistolas. You do look like Banderas, don't you?
