Range report on my BRAND NEW, fresh out of box, freshly cleaned and oiled PT92...it's a DUD!
Shot fine for 1 magazine of 147gr Speer Gold Dot. On the 4th round of the second mag (total of 21 shots in), the empty did not eject. Long story short, I could not get the thing back into battery, so I had the gunsmith at the range look at it. He was able to get it back into battery by holding the grip and giving it a tap with the palm of his hand. Then we disassembled it....and guess what? The barrel hood had a CRACK, on the upper portion. The barrel itself, right where it meets the chamber was also CRACKED on the bottom surface. The locking lugs (or whatever they are on a 92) also appeared pitted/damaged. This is unbelievable and unacceptable for a NEW gun!
It's on its way back to Taurus, and the SECOND I get it back, it's goodbye.
Lesson learned: when it comes to firearms, you do indeed get what you pay for....
