Both pistols are parallel developments of the original Beretta 92. This pistol had a frame-mounted safety and the mag release on the lower corner of the grip.
Taurus developed an ambidextrous frame safety and moved the mag release behind the trigger guard. Later, a hammer-drop feature was added to the safety.
Beretta went with the slide mounted hammer-drop safety, like its P.38 ancestor, and the mag release moved behind the trigger guard as well.
Despite similarities, few parts interchange.
