This pistol shows Taurus innovation and German influence at the same time. Taurus began building credible, quality descendants of the Beretta 92 series in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and the Brazilian Company deftly combined tradition with innovation beginning with its early models. The 92 and 99 series pistols filled a pricing niche beneath the pricey Berettas with no sacrifice of quality. After Beretta introduced its 92SB Compact, Taurus followed suit with their 92 C, which led to the series that includes the photo specimen in the late 1990s, when Taurus took its Beretta Compact type frame and installed a shorter, sturdier slide with looks akin to the German Sig Pistols. The 915 was a transitional model leading to the currently marketed PT 911 that is equipped with Taurus’s internal lock. This pistol, then, is a Pre-Lock Taurus. Type is traditional double and single action semi-automatic; construction is steel barrel, slide and parts mounted on a polished alloy frame; barrel length is service size 4 inches; grip frame is traditional and serrated fore and aft, yet thinned on the order of the Beretta Vertec pistols. Magazine capacity is 15 rounds, 15+1 total capacity, and any Taurus 92/99 magazine will fit into this pistol. Ambidextrous Frame Mounted Safety levers also serve as decockers, to safely return the hammer to its resting, double-action-ready position. The pistol, like all Tauruses with frame mounted safeties, is also capable of cocked-and-locked, single-action-first-shot carry. This particular specimen has served and protected the citizens of Israel with the Mishteret Y’Israel, the Israeli Civilian Police, in Beer-sheva. It is marked by the RETA Supply Company in Beer Sheva. These were only briefly manufactured in the interim from their introduction in 1999 until the internal lock was added in 2002 and the model number changed to PT 911. One photo shows Israeli Police decals that came on a couple of the magazine floorplates from this batch of pistols. Surface detractions are only moderate, with moderate amounts of holster buffing mostly on the sharp edges, and light inconspicuous scouring at places on the sides of the slide and on the grip panels. We rate it as Very Good, close to Excellent, since no more than 15 percent of its surface area is affected, in our estimation. Photos, at any rate, ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. It is excellent mechanically; bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright, clean, and excellent.
