Budget guns are associated with lack of reliability, difficulty finding parts, etc. but a value gun gets the most bang-for-buck. At $239.99 it would be easy to think of this as a budget gun, but it is really a value gun.
The PT111 G2 is a all-purpose lightweight, (22 oz.) polymer, striker fired, semi-automatic pistol with tight manufacturing tolerances and a respectable 13-round capacity. The contoured edges and molded, textured grip of the PT111 G2 makes it easier to carry without printing or rubbing uncomfortably, and the slight taper on the milled steel slide aids in holstering. The 12 round metal magazine provides fairly large capacity for a compact pistol. The pistol has a standard accessory rail for lights and lasers.
The double-action/single-action (DA/SA) trigger on the PT111 G2 offers a multiple-strike capability. The double trigger does not require the slide to cycle to cock the striker for a second strike. If a round fails to fire the first time a trigger is pulled, simply pull the trigger again to strike the primer with a longer double-action trigger pull.
Any pistol can fail and things go wrong, so the reliability of the manufacturer is just as important as the reliability of the gun. Taurus warranties their products with an unlimited lifetime repair policy, whether you were the original buyer or not. if the PT111 G2 fails or breaks, simply send it to Taurus and they will fix it free of charge.
