    Good afternoon. I own a Glock 17 Gen 4 and a Glock 21 Gen 4. Both brand new with only a few rounds through.

    Now I have the possibility to swap these two handguns against a Taurus PT92 AF (Beretta 92 FS clone) in 9mm and a Taurus PT 1911 in 45acp.

    Advantage: Both these Taurus firearms are brand new and I can use my stored 9mm and 45acp ammunition.

    Disadvantage: The after market for Taurus in Austria is nearly not existent. Plus I don't know much about Taurus - some say that they are brilliant others that they are crap. So I am confused.

    Would you swap or not ?

    If you want to trade your Glocks, trade for something else. I'm sure there are some good Taurus pistols out there, but they didn't get their reputation as junk overnight.

    I would not swap either. That is NOT a good deal!

    Almost no one can say the Glock is crap. You have two well made and very reliable pistols and you could end up with two questionable pistols.

    Not an equitable trade. The Taurus Beretta copy is a good pistol, but honestly you have two better handguns.

    Seriously? I have never heard the words "Taurus" and "brilliant" in the same sentence before.

    As SIMON C. would say, "A definite, resounding - NO!"

    No don't do it!

    If this person you want to trade with is a friend, cut him out of your life now. You don't need friends like that.

    You must be drinking too much lager and it's not even October yet. No Way Jose. It's like trading your BMW for a Corolla.

    not tonight you've got a headache.
    Taurus is not terrible, they are OK. but just OK.
    even NIB is not a good deal for the pistols you already own.
    i have owned Taurus, S&W, Ruger, Kimber, Springfield (including XD models) and others.
    i carry and shoot mostly my Glocks.
    not knocking anyone's product.
    of the guns i have owned, the Taurus would be at or near the bottom of the list.

    The PT-92 an adequate handgun. I would not trade one Glock for two Taurus handguns however.

    You may already have made your decision, but personally, I wouldn't do it .
