    Actually I like the grip of glock gen 4 more the of gen 5, I bought a glock 19 gen 5 but still carry one of my hammer fired handguns.

    I never liked the finger grooves on Glocks, they never quite fit where my fingers wanted to go. First Glock I ever bought was a 43, but sold that when I discovered the 43X. I think it will be my "forever" carry gun.

    I agree dear, the finger grooves are not for everyone. Its always personal preference.

    Personal choice and fit is ideal for everyone. For me, the backstraps on glocks are useless, as in the entire area of palm, the fingers provide firm grip with more force. (keeping hand pliers/wrenches in mind).. . They should have provided front straps, plian and grooved (diff. sizes) instead of back straps and this would have been a unique feature of Glock. But small changes are marketing tactics imo..

    What about PT92? I have been quoted 160K for it. Any known issue about its performance?

    160k is bit high for tauras.in Peshawar you can get a new m9 or 92fs for 200k or good used one 95 percent condition for 160k.
    no issues with pt92s performance though,i had one in past only one issue some time the slide will not lock back when last round is fired.

    If the difference is 15k between khi and pwr
    Then there's no point to buy from Peshawar
    Because transportation will also cost more than 15 k
    If you hire a carrier he will also get more than 15k
    Better check throughly in your hands and buy from Karachi
    There's no known issues in pt 92 99 917 etc
    They are time tested weapons

    That is assuming they are actually built in/imported from Italy. Taurus of Brazil made some good copies, but I would not automatically assume they are Italian.

    Good amkhan. I am afraid that 160k is a bit steep for a PT 92. I myself am upgrading to either the PT 92 or the Girsam MC Regard called POF X that is available at the POF outlet at Lucky Star, Saddar Karachi.

    I had a dream a couple of nights back in which I was the proud owner of a stainless steel Taurus PT 92. I was last offered one back in Jan for 145k.

    I have seen used pieces go for 125k or so.

    However the Girsan MC regard is also a very good gun. A Turkish Berreta 92 FS clone with a loaded chamber indicator and a rail.

    Me and the good Deathrow took it apart at the POF outlet and checked its internal very thoroughly. I was quite impressed. If the Taurus PT 92 is beyond my budget I will get the X. at Rs. 99k (roughly $500) it is a good buy indeed.

    As for the Berreta 92 FS. I am not sure about the real deal or a clone. Some of the clones are extremely good. Take Farooq Ali Shah (FAQ) clones. I could not differentiate at all. And then there are those that have actual beretta barrels inside or SnW sigma gen 2 SnW VE9 barrels.

    i have personally owned and used a pt92 but girsan is much better then it.i have my self disassembled and checked pofx it has nice fit and finish and 18 rounds italian magazine.its good value for money.

    The only issue i faced with mine was some times slide not locking back on last round fired.

    yes there are lot of clones but you can recognise it from international small parts if you have been using berettas in the past but i agree with you its difficult to judge,one needs a proper field strip to check. i have had two fs92 in past a italian made and a usa made.
