Taurus Millennium G2 PT 111 Remains Popular

When I first published the review of the Taurus Millennium G2 PT 111 there was definitely a vocal number that disavowed a love for anything Taurus. Apparently though, despite some bad experiences people have previously had with their products, this model is doing very well and is maintaining some popularity.

The Taurus Millennium G2 beats out, for a second month in a row, other top firearms brands. “The demand we are seeing for this model is very exciting,” said Director of Marketing Tim Brandt. “Consumers are recognizing the reliability of this unbelievably affordable compact semi-auto. We really appreciate the support of the Taurus brand, and the results from Gun Broker in June are evidence that we are delivering on our goal of producing better quality firearms at the right price.”

Model Number: 111G2
Action Type: Single Action/Double Action
Caliber: 9mm Luger
Capacity: 12 + 1
Length: 6.24”
Barrel Length: 3.2”
Height: 5.1”
Width: 1.2”
Weight: 20.8 oz
Trigger Pull: 6 lbs
Sights: Fixed Front, Adjustable Rear (2 dot)
Price: MSRP-$467 (street ~$250)

It appears that the street price is nearly $100 less than when I initially reviewed it. So thoughts? Any of you have one? Any converts to this weapon from previous Taurus haters (or is that a line never again crossed)?

    Ah, a Taurus thread! Nothing beats pitting positive and negative anecdotes about the same firearms against each other. Does anyone know what quality control means or how to test it? Hello? Is anybody out there?
