What Gun Owners Discover About the Millennium G2
First of all, the price point for the quality of pistol tends to surprise collectors and experienced gun buyers. Note the polymer frame with the same mold lines as more expensive poly-framed pistols. The slide and barrel bead-blasted for a smooth, consistent finish. Taurus has even made use of a high polish to the barrel hood where it is visible through the ejection port on the side. We believe your expectations about price and quality will be surpassed by this gun.
Accuracy and Operation
Weäó»ve talked fit and finish, now letäó»s talk accuracy and operation. The PT 111 is unique in the fact that it features a single-action/double-action trigger system that operates like most other single-action striker fired handguns. As the slide moves to the rear after firing, the striker is pre-cocked for the following shot.
The distinct part is that should the chambered round fail to fire, you can squeeze the trigger again for a second strike. While we never hope for failure to fire, itäó»s good to have a plan should such an event occur.
The single action trigger pull is long with an average pull weight of 8 pounds, 6 ounces. Point of interest: the double action pull weight is lighter at 6 pounds and 7 ounces. Once again, it is unlikely you will need to put this feature to use. This is merely to let you know what to expect.
Taurus has built low profile polymer sights with a three-dot pattern in white on the PT 111. The back sight can be adjusted for windage and elevation by means of dual recessed adjustment screws which can be found alongside the sight. It is not particularly common to find a fully adjustable rear sight on a sub-compact pistol, and many users love making the most out of this opportunity when they get to the range.
The PT 111 at the Range
Thereäó»s no better place to get to know a gun, is there? The PT 111 ships with two 12-round magazines included. These steel magazines come with extended polymer base pads that mold to the bottom of the magazine well nicely. Thereäó»s little need to worry about skin getting caught between the two pieces of metal during firing because the gap between the bottom of the grip and the top of the base pad is minimal.
Some users find that a loading tool, whether or not they tend to use one, is an ideal way to work with the magazines on this firearm. Itäó»s more a question of comfort when loading the magazines to full capacity. Once loaded, all it takes is a gentle push to lock the magazines into the pistol. Once the magazines are emptied, they drop from the pistol with an easy push of the magazine release.
Use the Taurus photo-illustrated instructions manual to give you a step-by-step guide to the adjustment process. Explore how the flexibility of this firearm changes your sample groups. Many users find that fine tuning the sight lends quite the impact to spread, precision, and accuracy.
Because so many concealed carry pistols are intended for personal defense, finding the äóÖeffortlessäó» zone for your sights is an important opportunity. Believe me, thinking is the last thing you want to have to do in an emergency. Plan and prepare till you make the right moves by rote, especially with your firearms.
You may come to find that you appreciate the small patches of aggressive strippling molded during manufacturing on either side of the grip, and on the front and back straps. There is an abbreviated thumb rest on both sides of the frame.
There are two äóìmemory padsäó scalloped areas ahead and above the trigger guard. These moldings create comfortable grip when the magazine is inserted into the pistol.
