There are only 5 models currently made in Miami, PT22 and 25, PLY 22 and 25, and the TCP, 738 and 732 (not really sure about the 732). So your 92 should be made in Brazil, or Brasil ??

Well I had to go look at my pt92afs.

On the side that you show in your picture there is no miami fl engraving. However, on the other side towards the front (muzzle end) under there it is "miami fl" in about 1/8 of an inch lettering.

I cannot help you as to why yours doesn't have this or why mine does, all I know is it flat out shoots.

I hope someone can come along and help you out.

Tano, if you live outside of the US, your Taurus guns might not go through Miami, they might come directly from Brazil instead.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think to clarify the point, since all are made in Brazil, the "Miami,Fl" designates those specifically for US import due to Sarbanes Oxley Act.
