Hi! from a new member in Austin, TX. The name's Tyler, and despite my username, I'm quite friendly. I'm currently studying electrical engineering and economics @ UT, but love machinery and mechanics as well (actually I enjoy anything involving guns, cars, computers, and cooking). As such I decided to start looking for handgun in the past few months, and thanks to this forum, I settled on a new pt92 afs about a week ago. I've never been able to leave good enough alone, so this first week brought about quite a large transformation. Sorry for the camera-phone quality. Full specs are in my signature.







Feel free to let me know what you think of it.

Welcome from north Texas. You will really like the PT 92, I have the same one in SS and it was a great buy.

Welcome from New Mexico, I hope you enjoy your PT99 as much as I have mine. I think it is my all time favorite so far but I am willing to gather as many others as I can just to be sure.:D

Welcome from right up the road from you!
Your sig didn't come through, but I have to ask, what's installed on the front and does it mess up the balance?

Thanks for the greetings. And I was pretty sure I saved my signature, I'll check later. Parts list - Wolff 18lb recoil spring, Wolff d spring, Beretta Elite Hammer (Custom milled to fit), Altamont black checkered wood grips, stainless grip screws, and an HEC Compensator (SGS Clone).
but I have to ask, what's installed on the front and does it mess up the balance?
The compensator is the item on the front, and despite the menacing looks, weighed in at ~8oz. The ports on the top are for redirecting gas flow, similar to a muzzle brake on rifles. The compensator has 3 baffles that strip gas from the passing bullet and force it upwards. It reduces barrel rise allowing for more accurate follow up shots; the 92 feels like a .22 when I have the compensator installed, even when firing NATO(+p) loads.
