• Taurus G2c

    Anyone have any experience with the Taurus G2c pistols in 9mm or 40 S&W?

    I recently picked up a used 9mm and have been testing it out. The little thing is a bit impressive 200 rounds in. Despite the low-profile safety, my draws to first hits have comparable times to other automatics. While not as easy for me as my revolvers, 50 yard shooting is comparable to other semi-autos with drive-the-dot sights. Changing ammo doesn't seem to shift point of impact as much as some other handguns. And it was easy to press a holster for, unlike some guns with a bunch of machine work that needs to be blanked out.

    I think my only complaint is the light striker spring. I'd like to find either a slightly heavier replacement or at least a fresh factory spring. The current one leaves small dimples in the primers and has had a couple failures to ignite a couple rounds of a load with hard-ish primers.

    If anyone else has opinions, I'd like to hear them.

    A local gun shop sell loads of newer designed Taurus pistols. Taurus quality was hit and miss for a long time, but they did some changes in their designs and improved processes. It appears to be a reliable gun at a great price point.

    Not in that line, but I have several Taurus handguns, slide and wheel guns and have zero complaints. My PT-145Pro is technically under a safety recall, but that's because some idiots had the safety fail when they attempted to activate the safety with the trigger partially depressed. If you keep your damned finger OFF the bang-switch when you turn the safety on all is well - but I digress.
