Between those two. I will go with PT92 any day.

Of those two I would get the PT92 but if It was me I would add $10 more dollars and get the CDNN Sig. 2022 deal for $359

The 2022 is a sweet gun, I had one briefly but traded it for another gun I wanted more.

Eventually, I will get one.

In that price range I'd be buying a Ruger P series.

Do not want a Ruger P series. I know they are reliable - I had a P94 - but I do not like the grip shape.

And since you didn't ask, the FEG Hi Power clones can be had for that price.

The PT92 gets my vote, but I have no problem with the Sigma.

Nether!

Save a little more and buy a Beretta 92FS.

Between the two---Sigma then get an APEX spring kit and you'll still be under budget with a decent trigger. That said, I'd take a hard look at the new 'improved' SD line S&W has. The old SDs were good guns for the money and I expect these to be as well.

Yep.
Save a bit more and expand your choices. CDNN had some Glock trade in for 399.

Between them two I'd get the Taurus. Or in that price range a P95. I'd be happy with either of them for that price.

Not sure if you're close to an le store, but a Glock trade in would be much better. Some of em have been shot very little.

The new S&W SD9VE.

I got the PT92. Really liking the frame-mounted safety. Fit and finish is pretty good with no rattle or play. Came with 17-rd and 20-rd Taurus mags.

What's with these Sigs? Why are they so cheap? The Sig I know likes to gouge you with massively high prices... Why is this one so cheap?

Id find a gently used, pre decocker PT92.

06-08-2012, 12:52
Had a Sigma and hated it...nothing wrong with it other than the trigger and "I" just didn't like it. I know nothing of the Taurus but as others have stated, expanding your budget just a tad would open up some possibilties to some very decent guns.

Bilbo Bagins
06-08-2012, 13:09
Pure Range gun and home defense get the Taurus PT92. It is big and heavy, so if you have any intentions of carrying it I would go with something else.

The S&W, Ruger, or the Sig will all be lighter, shorter in length, and easier to carry.

bmoore

Neither. Sig Pro 2022 from Palmetto state armory for 349. One would be a fool to buy either of the two you mentioned with this current sale going on.

There is quite a story behind the Sigpro line. A european design, (my 2340 has a Swiss frame) it was designed to compete with the Glock at price point, with the benefots of a polymer frame and using a Hammer fired Da/Sa system, although DAO was offered as an option. The first to come to this Country in number were contract overruns and surplus with a few being ordered for LE agencies. They just kept coming an as the 2009 model was intorduced and finally the 2022. The French Police contract model. they use the sig lock up system and Sig quality but with the cost benefits of polymer written in.

Sig USA was caught in a dilema due to their throwing their weight behind the polymer, modular, DAO 250 model. By all accounts, happy owners notwithstanding, it has been a flop. promised conversions were late in reaching the market, etc. Before it could get rolling there were so many Sigpros in the Country that it never would/will catch up. the Sigpro is THE polymer Sig. Sig USA finally had to cave in and start building them hereSig USA however has to keep the prices in the same ballpark as the contract overruns in order to compete with their own parent company.

Needless to say, after several years of ownership I am quite pleased with my pair. For accuracy and ease of shooting the 2022 ranks right there with my CZ 75 compact. BTW a visual appraisal of the CZ compact and then the 2022 would give you the inpression that the CZ is a lot smaller, NOT SO, put them side by side and measure if you like, they are almost identical in heigth and length. It is the optical illusion (if you will) created by the internal slide rails of the CZ VS the external "traditional" rails of the Sig.

For $350, buy the Sig.

Or save a bit more and pay $400 for the Caracal. People say its better than the PPQ.

TxGlock9
06-08-2012, 15:55
Taurus because then you can jock on Jessie Harrison all day long...

No, I'm kidding. I agree with the above with the Sig SP2022 for sub $400..

Bottom gun.

For that price range I would go Ruger p95 if your cool with da/sa. I had bad luck with my PT92 and got rid of it...but itsnot a bad gun really. With it you can do hammer down or cocked and locked...hell you could even do hammer down WITH a safety..though I don't really see the point of that. Dont have experience with the other gun.

What countrygun said. Also, the french government ordered 200,000 of them. Heck, the gun is named after that contract. The cost of R&D and tooling was amortized a long time ago.

06-08-2012, 20:09
the sig pro is a seriously underrated gun,its fantastic. for DA/SA go with it,for a striker fire gun with a better trigger get the Caracal. the Caracal is significantly smaller and i believe it is a better pistol

06-08-2012, 20:17
Well, I like the Taurus quite a bit. It's got just about everything I could want in a defense handgun: 1911-style safety and Sig-style de-cocker so it's versatile, rail for light should I choose to use one, proven reliability, frame-mounted safety which I prefer, exposed barrel design like Beretta, barrel protrusion for suppressor if I want, alloy frame for a change from the Glocks, 20-rd mags are not too hard to find for a reasonable price.

Berto
06-08-2012, 20:38
As other have said, there are other (arguably) better guns out ther for the price, but the PT92 series from Taurus are actually very good pistols.
IMO I'd rather have the best of Taurus vs among the worst from S&W.

Here it is. I actually like it very much and have no regrets. Shown with a 20-rd mag, but it also came with a 17-rd mag.

Yeah well the PT92 came from a pawn shop that let me do a layaway. That's how I was able to afford it vs any CDNN gun.

PT92, had a couple, traded for something else. Miss them. Ruger P95, same story, both no issues, always shot well. Never felt under gunned with the 15 rd magazines.
Glocks were issued weapons, dependable and lightweight. Minor issues, recoil springs needed to replaced, causing extraction problems. Maybe 1 or 2 rds per 100.
S&W 5906s are still a fine handgun. Borrowed one while my S&W M66 had to be repaired from the factory. Little heavy, but shot well. Recoil was well handled with the frame weight. All fine, could live without a Glock if need be.

This is exactly what I thought about when I read the title of this thread.

It's a good LE grade gun at a cheap price. I think if they were more expensive, they would be more popular.
