9mm. Bowling Pin Race Gun - Preview

I've been busy on the milling machine making the sight mount for the 9mm. bowling pin race gun I'm putting together. I just did a test fit/assembly to make sure everything cleared and fitted up OK prior to final finishing and assembly. So far, so good.....

Anybody recognize the gun?

I could be wildly off, but it looks like a Beretta to me. 92FS with a compensator?

Taurus PT-99/92? That guide rod looks real familiar.

When mr. C brought this mount into the house to show me, I thought "wow! he truly is an artist when it comes to creating something on his milling machine.
This piece will bring in the usual comments at the range, "what the H--l is that?"

Anon was close, and Josh nailed it. It's an early Taurus PT-92, which is, of course, a slightly modified and improved Beretta.

I'll do a full report on it in a week or so when I've got it finished and shoot it a bit.

The object is to come up with a club level competitive race gun, in this case for bowling pins, in a price range that mere mortals can afford.

I make mounts for Glocks for one of my customers in my mfg bidness and I have to say that's a very nice machining job

"Recognize the gun" ??

The gun is the dark (gun colored) metal thing; to the left of something yellow, and right underneath the shiny, newly machined, bright metallic part.
