Oh I don’t know, I might wait a year or so and see how they pan out.

This makes me suspect that they may come back with the compact model.

OP, that's a handsome pistol. I'd prefer it without the rail, but the businesslike matte finish sets off the glossy grips very well.

A very skilled gunsmith with a high degree of metal smithing skills should be able to make the rail disappear I would think.
It may cost a chunk of change but the resulting gun would be awesome!

I'd like to see the Compact come back, too. Especially for mags and slim grip panels.

Almost identical to my first 92, the "free" one Taurus gave me when the revolver died. Except for the rail.
I am in the process of buying my very first ever 9mm.** It is going to be a PT 92, or some variation. I'm thinking the 92 AFS if one is available. Those will stand up to a lot of use, won't they? I'm open to suggestions. I like the one in the picture but I don't like those rails.

** I took my Colt Pocketlite to the pawnshop yesterday to see if they were interested in it. They are. The Pocketlite is a very nice gun but I prefer to carry a J frame revolver. The Colt has become a safe queen so she's getting the boot.:D





(Here's all the variations, which I've cut and pasted from Wikipedia.)
