I have a PT111G2, and it has been great. I also bought a PT140G2. It malfunctioned. The slide would not function, and it had a round in the chamber. I could not send it back that way, so I took it to a gunsmith for advice. He literally pounded slide until it finally broke loose. Parts fell out of the handgun. I sent it back to Taurus, and 14 short weeks later, they sent it back to me good as new.
So, all I can say is be careful what you buy. You may never have an issue like I did, but you may get killed while in need of a well functioning handgun.
I just bought a G2 Saturday. Shot 4 boxes over the weekend and absolutely no issues with it. For the price of $199 for something that you can throw in a tool box, or on a tractor you can’t beat it. I still have my S&M body guard down in my boot or inside belt but for a snake or booger bear getter that is not that big of a loss if it fell out of the boat or ran over, hard to beat it.
Ok guys, this PO'd me beyond belief. If you look through the recall instructions you can take $200 cash or send in your qualifying gun and Taurus will repair your old one or replace it for free.
Now, the truth! Everyone on the Taurus Facebook page is complaining that
they are replacing every gun with at PT111 G2C in 9mm. I turned in a full size 40 cal. two tone pistol that I paid $400.00 for and I am going to get back a 9mm flat black compact. That is just wrong and now I wish I had the old pistol back.
