I used to have a PT99, but got newgunitis and traded it.
My current pistol is rapidly becoming my favorite. I am selling my other 9mm's (except for my KT P11), including a Beretta 92. After shooting both 92s, I realized that the Taurus safety was just that extra little bit more comfortable.
I have a 99.The first 400 rounds it shot great.Then it started jamming,wouldn't eject.A friend pointed out the guide rod was bent.Have no idea how it happened.I can roll it down a flat surface sure enough it had a slight bend.I can get a Berretta rod for around $25.Hope it fits.My other Taurus guns are:24/7 Pro .45,Tracker 4" .44 mag.Rossi 2".357 mag.Like em 'all especially the 24/7.
I really love it. Shoots accurrate everytime I squeeze the trigger. I've never had a problem with it either. I'm waiting for the 1911SS. I think I'll just get the 1911B for now and then get the 1911SS when it comes out.
Mine is my daily CCW and has been for 9 years now. I find it to be easily concealed on my 6'2" 200+ lb frame. It has broken but once, and that was when the locking block went out a number of years back. It is a pre-decock model built in 1991 IIRC.
I have put 100-200 rounds through this pistol weekly for about 9 years now. It initially had some teething problems, not wanting to extract the empty cases on standard pressure ammo and busting a locking block early on. I fixed those problems and it's run well ever since.
Have owned a PT92AF since last summer, had a PT99 back in early '80's, wish the single action trigger pull would 'work in', shooting buddy has a CZ75B-SA with MUCH better single action trigger pull, given the opportunity to choose between the two again- - - might make a different choice ! Hindsight is always 20/20 I reckon ! ! !
Praying for warm weather in MO !! !!
