Been researching this gun and wondering what all y'alls opinion is. I like the hammer fired, ambi controls, decocker, large cap, sa/da double strike, and most of all the price. So far everyone seems to like them. Will primarily be a range plinker.
As a range gun, it's probably fine. But Taurus has had way too many quality issues recently for me to trust it as a defensive weapon. Sure, it'll probably be fine, but Taurus has a long way to go to convince me to take the chance. I will admit, the PT111 has had enough independent reviews to possibly suggest it to family members on a budget.
From a cost perspective, that's a decent firearm. Just please make sure to properly test it within the first few weeks, so you can report to Taurus if it screws up.
I've heard most the fte/ftf issues is due to not cleaning good enough first time and shipping grease gumming up the works. For the price I might just have to buy one and risk it. Thanks for the opinion.
Like I said, if the goal is to be a plinker/range gun, that price is VERY hard to ignore. I say go for it if you have a spare few hundred.
Just ordered and should show up next week. Will put a range report in once I get some time to go.
Picked it up today from Shooter Ready (only shop that could get it) and this thing looks and feels great. Might be a while before I can hit the range though, had an accident and have 2 sprained ankles. Boo. Will post range results when I can walk again. Lol.
Juan and Cy are good people to deal with.
I use to shoot steel dogs with them.
Good luck with your Taurus!
Dealt with Juan and I liked him. Will probably go back.
Bought a PT111 (pink pistol) for someone a long time ago. I hated it. The trigger pull was terrible.
