I thought the Taurus 92 and the Baretta were nearly identical? I'm using Baretta clips in my Taurus. They work fine.

The very early Beretta mdel 92's had a safety like a 1911 .45 auto. I had two of them. They were both bought in 1974.

Soon after that, they changed to a hammer drop safety which is the one on the U.S. military guns.

Beretta won a contract for some Brazilian military or police contract and set up a factor in Sao Paulo to manufacture them. When the contract was fulfilled, Taurus bought the tooling and began to make an identical gun. It was the early model with the early safety. Taurus now makes hammer drop safeties too.
