- Good features at the price point
- Double-strike capability
- Mediocre trigger
After some quality control and safety issues with the original PT111 line, Taurus unveiled the PT111 Millennium G2 in a bid to rectify those issues while simultaneously lowering the price. With a 3.2-inch barrel, 12-round capacity, manual safety, and fully adjustable rear sight, the G2 is appealing at its price range of $200-300. The capacity is excellent for a gun of its size, and the trigger allows for double-strike capability if there is an ammo-related failure. Taurus successfully crafted a serviceable concealed-carry weapon with solid features at a very affordable price point.

Taurus PT111 Millennium G2 Variations & Comparables
“The Taurus G2S isn’t innovative or new. It doesn’t offer anything a dozen other pistols don’t offer. What it does do is remain accurate, lightweight, relatively reliable, and easy to use, all at sub-$200. When you don’t have a lot of extra cash on hand and don’t live in the best area of town — a really cheap, reliable, safe, concealable handgun might be the thing you’ve been waiting for. Guns like the Taurus G2S are what make the second amendment available for all Americans.” – Travis Pike
The Savage Stance is the first pistol in Savage’s lineup in over 100 years. At just under 1 inch thick with a 7 or 8+1 single stack magazine, the Stance is made to be easily concealable. The front of the slide is beveled for a snag-free draw and easy reholstering, and the 360-degree aggressive grip texture ensures comfort and controllability. Wide slide serrations ensure easy manipulation of the gun. Additional models include various different colors, night sights, and external safety versions.
“The Shield 9 Plus is about as small as you can go and still have an easily useable platform with ergonomic controls across a range of hand sizes…any smaller and compromises begin to occur. That said, Smith did an excellent job with this pistol, making it accurate, easy to use, and wholly concealable.” – Sean Curtis
The Sig P365 is an impressive micro 9mm with a great track record. This gun is a popular subcompact semi-auto pistol, designed for CCW and self defense. Some of it’s key features include a 10-round capacity, which is higher than many of its competitors, compact and modular, has XRAY3 Day/Night sights providing visibility in low light conditions, and ambi controls. We’ve tested this gun time and time again. As our writer puts it, “The rest of the industry has had a couple of years to catch up but the P365 is still an impressive micro 9mm that is super popular as a CCW option.” – Travis Pike
“With a competitive price, a comfortable yet diminutive frame, and stellar accuracy, the Springfield Hellcat is a winner. It provides stiff competition for the Sig Sauer P365, as well as the other micro compacts on the market. It’s a solid concealed carry pistol with varying capacities, optional accessories, and an actual Picatinny rail.” – Travis Pike
The Stoeger STR-9C is an extremely affordable entry into the world of optics-ready striker-fired polymer handguns. A 13+1 capacity, sub 5-lb crisp trigger, optics-ready slide, accessory rail, and interchangeable backstraps ensure that the STR-9C isn’t lagging behind the competition. At under $350, this compact pistol is tough to beat when it comes to performance per dollar.
Taurus PT111 Millennium G2 Upgrades & Accessories
Taurus was beset with woes and safety issues regarding their original Millennium line of pistols. However, they have largely righted the ship with the introduction of the PT111 G2. Better ergonomics, texturing, reliability, and safety are all present in this updated version of the original. Is it a great gun? No. Is it a good gun? Probably. Is it a great value? Absolutely. At $200-250, it is tough to get something with the feature set and feel of the G2 that will shoot as well and as reliably as it will. There is a reason the gun made a big splash and the newer version continue to sell well, they are affordable, and they work.
