Based on what I've read and heard about the 92/99, it's barrel life if DEFINITELY above 10,000. Numerous people have the 92 since more than 10-15 years and still love its reliability and accuracy.

Taurus, our Mod also has one and from what I heard, he's already through a few thousand rounds. If I remember correctly, Abbas (our Admin) also has one in SS. You can ask these two.

Come on folks do not worry about barrel life. There are handful of shooters who can wearout barrels of their guns.

. Why would U want to put that many rounds through the same gun? Unless of course U are a professional shooter.

Cannot be sure on the 50K round barrel life figure but one can come to a conclusion through the knowledge that its a hammer forged barrel which means that it should last a minimum of 25K rounds. infact if u look at similar priced handguns u'll see that most mentioned barrel life in this price range is also 25K rounds.

and i'm talking barrel life in terms of accuracy. meaning after around 25K (i'm assuming barrel life at 25K rounds) the barrel will not guarentee the stated accuracy (unable to promise anymore the minimum accuracy guarenteed by the manufacturer). in otherwords, after the number of shots fired exceed the "minimum barrel life mark" the barrel will not produce the results which were originally guarenteed by the manufacturer.

when any of pistols fired counter reaches above 10k rounds just take a bullet and place the projectile into the muzzle over here the projectile shoundnt counter-sink fully into the muzzle, the time projectile start to fully sink intop the muzzle its time to replace the barrel.

Most of us won't ever have to worry about barrel life in our lives, unless we are competition shooters or shoot guns for a living. Even 10K rounds is a lot. Translates to 30 x 10000, meaning Rs 300,0000 worth of ammunition. Seriously, that is a large figure to spend on ammo for the Common Joe.

In any case, many will sell off their guns and buy another long before the round limit for barrel life is even close to its end.

@ Spaypanther: and they say it is not about the lifetime of the individual who bought it but about the life time of the firearm.

@ Yoosha: and probably a faithful monogamist ;)

@ Denovo,

I've actually been meaning to ask this question. Let's say the locking block breaks few years down the line and I send Taurus only that particular part along with details of my PT 92. Do you think they would replace it by sending me back new locking blocks?

SA bro, from taurus forum I got to know that you have to send them broken part or the faulty peice to get replacement of and forum is of US taurus users so not sure whether they have any center catering international customers in Brazil. As we obviously cannot go through US based service centers due to restrictions.

I will appreciate if any member come forward with the info on Taurus service center in other country we can benefit from.

well Guys its a very familiar question??a person asks when he is new to guns ...Guns barrel life depends on your hand i have heard and read on various places ppl have even tested and ran through 80000 rounds on pt 99 and it ran smoothly and accurately the only thing they do is a thorough cleaning and it depends how you run your gun some ppl do rapid fire mostly but it depends how clean you keep ur handgun not only clean but also maintainance guns barrel life is like a car how you drive it u drive it rough it can go only on 10000 if you ran it well it goes to 100000 also...so its a very familiar but i would say if abt the life of taurus 92/99 models they must run atleast 50000 rounds
