Manufacturer’s Description

In 1980, Taurus purchased the Beretta factory in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and soon began producing pistols based on the Beretta 92 design. The Taurus 99 is chambered in 9mm and features a drop hammer and a forged ordnance-grade alloy frame designed to prevent cracking or allowing the slide to come off.

  • A three-position, frame-mounted ambidextrous safety, which is more secure than a slide mounted safety and allows for a classic single-action cocked-and-locked mode, as well as functioning as a DA decocking lever.
  • adjustable sights;
  • an accessory rail;
  • checkered rubber grips;
  • either a blue or a stainless steel finish;
  • a loaded chamber indicator; and
  • two blue steel high-capacity magazines.
