Here is a small contribution from my side to PG and my fellow PG members, i my self is not a professional so i did my best to cover up all the basic aspects. It was really hard for me to take some time out due to office but i finally decided to sit and get this done once in for all :P

Kindly use the information provided below at your own risk!





Taurus PT-92 / Beretta 92 Field Strip and Maintenance Guide



Field Strip

1. Always make sure that your weapon is unloaded and keep away your ammunition from your cleaning space for safety precautions.

2. Bring your slide to its normal position if it was locked back.

3. Press and HOLD the lock release button on the right side of your "92".

4. Slide down the lock on left side of your "92", it should make a click sound and your slide will move forward.

5. Gently pull the slide forward till its off from pistol frame.

7. Now get a firm grip on your slide and slowly press the guide rod till its free and slightly move it up, then slowly release the pressure of your thumb.

8. Pull the guide rod along with the spring from your slide. Separate the spring and guide rod and put it aside.

9. Take your slide and press the small button (Lock Block Release) and your barrel will slightly pop out.

10. Now just simply pull out your barrel and put aside your slide.

11. Take the barrel and remove the Lock Block slightly moving the block upwards and then slide it right or left.

Cleaning

12. Here is the slide without the barrel which needs some serious cleaning.

http://i.imgur.com/SqdQuJu.jpg


13. This is what you should have after following the steps mentioned above.

http://i.imgur.com/ZkUlKsb.jpg


14. Take a cotton patch or lint free cloth and soak it with cleaning solvent.
14.1 I personally use lots of cleaning solvent at the starting as i like to cover all my parts with a nice wet coat of solvent to cut away the carbon/lead.

http://i.imgur.com/VUjNKG4.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/H3E18WQ.jpg


15. Now take your barrel and apply a nice wet coat of cleaning solvent and put it aside when done. (Do not wipe / clean the solvent yet)

http://i.imgur.com/NIKeCzV.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/WnkX408.jpg


15.1. Apply the same process as above for your Slide, Lock Block, Guide Rod / Spring and Frame.

http://i.imgur.com/oty65bS.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/8Pia2CN.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/LVF93HV.jpg


16. Take another cotton patch / lint free cloth and again soak it with solvent and this will be for your barrel.
16.1 I highly recommend that you use a new cotton patch for you barrel and not the old one.

http://i.imgur.com/93bdnq8.jpg


17. Slide down the soaked patch through the barrel 3-4 times for a nice coat of solvent inside to cut away all the residue inside.

Cleaning (Continued)

18. Here are all the parts after applying a wet coat of solvent.

http://i.imgur.com/Vg43QNQ.jpg


19. Take another DRY clean cotton patch and run it through the barrel 5-6 times.


http://i.imgur.com/YeiJmTS.jpg


20. Take rest of the of the parts and wipe the solvent with a DRY clean cotton patch and now it should be nice and clean.

Lubricating

21. Take a small amount of lubricant that you have available and lint free cloth as in this case i am using "Army Grade Lubricant Oil".
21.1. Keep in mind that you should NOT soak it in oil merely apply small amount where its actually needed.

http://i.imgur.com/9ra8KCp.jpg


22. Run the piece of cloth through slide and make sure to cover up all the spots in the slide.
22.1. Also not to squeeze out the oil from the lint cloth that you are using as you don't need a gun dipped in oil.

http://i.imgur.com/I6G29F6.jpg

http://i.imgur.com/17k8L1Q.jpg


23. Take all the other parts and softly lubricate them thoroughly.

http://i.imgur.com/T9bP64V.jpg


24. Lubricating you slide and the frame is very important, so make sure to cover all the spots that needs to be lubricated.

http://i.imgur.com/hc2AoKK.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/UVyLHwe.jpg


25. Assembly is pretty simple, so just start with your barrel and slide in Locking Block.

http://i.imgur.com/zF30zfw.jpg


26. Followed by inserting the spring in guide rod.

http://i.imgur.com/T9bP64V.jpg


27. Now simply insert the barrel in the slide and it should go in without any hassle.

http://i.imgur.com/Bu6R1kQ.jpg


28. Insert the guide rod in to its place and apply pressure with your thumb from the back and lock it in a small hatch in Locking Block.
28.1. Make sure everything in your slide is sturdy and not loose or moving.

http://i.imgur.com/MzOZkUh.jpg


29. Now place the slide on the frame and slide it in.
29.1 Move the slide all the way back and flick up the lock on left side of your "92"

Nice tutorial; amazing photography.

I am also amazed by the amount of gunk that came out. We both shot about the same amount of ammo but my cleaning patches were not half dirty as yours. This tells me I need to change either my cleaning process or products. Thanks again for the step by step tutorial.

Dear Dragg3r Bro,

Very, very nice and detailed coverage..... Very well done with the correct "Write-up" hope you keep this up......

God Bless you for your work..........


Just a simple "Note" Please .. please in your pictures & Point 5 last picture & point 6 last few picture......

Always keep you "Hand covered on Slide Spring" as it has a very accidental tendency to jump and sometime injuring you or someone around !!!


So Always keep your one hand covered on slide spring until you dismantle it completely.


Hope this clear much for safety.

JazakAllah Khair Imtiaz bhai ....yes we did fire aprox same number of rounds and i could have cleaned it even more but this procees already took over 2 hours and i was extremely exhausted from my grave yard shift so i just wanted to wrap it up.

Nice tutorial, very nice indeed. Good Job Dragg3r bro. I have a PT99 too & your process is right on the money. This is exactly how i do it, the only difference is i don't use oil on the slides, i use Tetra grease. I have found out (curtsy of world wide web) that in a hand gun where metal slides against metal its better to use a good quality grease than oil. As oil has tendency to evaporate over a period of time whereas grease stays there for a long long time & if you are using a good quality grease like Tetra or Shooters choice it will also not attract fouling, so IMHO its better to use grease than oil on slides...

Yes they sure are mainly because of all the options that you can play around with to get the best result.

I certainly agree with you brother, i my self would prefer grease for metal to metal contact but due to unavailability at that time i had to work with what i had but the oil that i have used is (Army Grade) and very viscous so it serves its purpose very well.



nice effort bro... image quality was excellent..
