Taurus PT145 Millennium Pro 45acp Stainless
[1145039P]
$369.00
by Douglas H Date Added: Thursday 13 October, 2011
Taurus Millenium Pro PT145 in .45ACP; 10+1 rds (staggered magazine) and polymer with a stainless slide. Well priced and comments are ONLY for the gun itslf. I have NOT yet fired it.

Slide and barrel are pretty well machined and polymer frame is neat. I cleaned the gun after a field strip including the mags. It was fairly clean, but the borel did need a brass bristle through it to remove factory firing residue. The rails had been greased at the factory and I used lithium grease and BreakFree CLP to clean it generally. The magazines need a small tipped flat blade screwdriver inserted from the rear side at a slot in the bottom edge. Just push forward and then use a thumb to slide the bumper plate off. Press one side of the floor plate down while lifting the other one and the floor plate and spring comes out. I wiped the interior and the spring down with dry lube after cleaning.

My one complaint is the slide stop lever is too sharp on the rear side and should be smoothed over at the factory. It's the one part you use most and it is not smoothed on the edge. Manual safety lever is OK. The takedown lever goes OVER the spring visible on reassembly and just take your time to press the takedown lever into place.

For the $, I believe it is a serviceable and very concealable piece with excellent capacity of a serious cartridge. Trigger is long, but smooth and nice as it starts to engage as the travel ends. If there is anything like this for under $400, I'd like to know. Compares favorably with a Glock 19 Gen3, though not as well made or ergonomically and cosmetically nice. the PT145 would make a great glove box or under jacket gun while outdoors.
