Taurus PT111 Millennium Pro 9mm Blue, 12 round
[1111031P12]
$357.00
by michael b Date Added: Sunday 12 September, 2010
This was the easiest and fastest transaction I have ever experienced. And the price was incomparable. The guys at my local FFL were impressed by the price since even after I paid them, I still saved nearly enough to buy a couple of additional mags.
I've read a lot of reviews on this gun by other buyers in all kinds of forums. Many of them mention FTF and other issues, but I had none of those and I suspect the reason is that Taurus ships their guns loaded with grease and protectant. As this is my first new gun purchase in several years, this was a learning experience for me, so I talked with my brother. He's a LEO training officer/armorer. He recommended the gun in the first place, so naturally I was curious why he would recommend a fun that has feed/extraction and misdirected issues right out of the box? He told me that the key was in the last 5 words.of.that question. Because of the cosmoline (sp?) protectant, firing right out of the box causes the works to gum up. So the first thing I did when I got it was to strip and THOROUGHLY clean and lube it. My wife and I finally got it to the range yesterday and while she only fired about 100 rounds, we didn't have a single issue. And she much prefers the grip and even the Heinie Straight Eight sights the Beretta 92 I was shooting. Smooth little gun. It's a little snappy which is to be expected in a 9mm with a 3" bbl, but not bad at all. It conceals eaaily and has enough safety features to calm a mothers' heart. If you're considering a Taurus PT111 Mil Pro, my advice is go for it FWIW. In my neck of the woods, I could resell and recoup every penny thanks to Buds' great prices, but after a little time at the range, I won't be selling this gun anytime soon. Thanks, Bud's!
