First topic message reminder :

Several years ago, a friend of my brother was cleaning out guns from his collection.  In addition to my High Standard, I bought a Taurus PT92S from him, as it was a very inexpensive way to get something that shoots 9mm, and the more I held it, the more I wanted it.  The price was pretty low, so I said what the heck, and brought it home.  It wasn't anything to be serious about.  It did not come with adjustable rear sights, although Taurus did make a version that included them.  I've shot it a few times - it shoots low and the the left.  It's pretty nice in many ways though - so simple to work on.  So I bought a set of Hogue Grips to dress it up, and every so often I'd take it to the range.

9mm is so inexpensive to shoot, I thought it would be a gun to just take to the range and enjoy shooting, when not being "serious".  I did find out that adjustable rear sights had been available, but none could be found.  Then I found this video on a newer version of the PT92S:
   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apNtPrbR2bI&t=910s
(I left him a message - the way he lowers his head, his glasses give him no eye protection, and the only shot that he didn't blink for was the first.)
(My gun has no magazine issues, other than that I only have one of them, and also no lock.)

That video got me wondering about the gun, so I did a little searching and found that adjustable rear sights are available again:

In fact, Brownell's has them:

Two reasons for posting this thread:
First, has anyone here used a PT92 and installed these sights, and
Second, is it any good at shooting Bullseye, which it certainly was not made for?

My plan has been to order 10 boxes.  I suspect I'll like them, but I don't really like the ammo I've been buying at all.  Silly me, I never thought there was an alternative.

Thanks for the offer.  So much to do.  The very first thing is shopping  I've got my list of what to buy, but I figure I should wait until I'm home, before ordering anything, just in case the flight somehow gets delayed.  M-52 ammo (from two sources), the 9mm ammo, the spring and maybe the sight for Taurus, the gun rest, and maybe the brass marker.


Hmmm, just read LenV's post.  Feeding problems.  Maybe a smaller order would be good, before I order too many, and maybe I should get some RN as well as HP, to compare.  I haven't had feeding problems with the over the counter 9mm I've been buying, one box at a time, from various sources.  The gun seems to be rather bullet-proof so far, no issues.

I have that sight on my two 92fs ball guns.  Got my final leg with one.
