NRA Gun of the Week: Taurus Millennium G2 Pistol

Today’s market is full of defensive pistols of all shapes and sizes, making for tough decisions when it comes time to make a purchase. With regard to a carry gun, everyone has his or her own preference, but for a lot us it ultimately boils down to price and reliability. Enter the Taurus Millennium G2 9 mm, a lightweight, 13-round capacity, polymer-frame, striker-fired semi-automatic pistol. The folks at Taurus International know the pistol business and know that reliability is the most critical quality.

The 22-oz. Millennium G2 exhibits a thin profile and melted edges to enhance the carrying experience. The steel slide is mildly tapered toward the muzzle aiding with reholstering. Accuracy is imparted by high-profile three-dot sights and a 3.2”ramped barrel. The trigger system within the Millennium G2 offers single-to-double action with second-strike capabilities—meaning, if the first round fails to fire, simply pulling the trigger again resets the striker to sear and releases the striker again. An accessory rail for the addition of lights and lasers on the front of the dust cover comes standard. And molded stippling on the grip frame eases control of even the heaviest loads. Taurus stands behind each one of their products via an unlimited lifetime repair policy, which is not limited to strictly the buyer—if the gun fails, just send it in and have it fixed, free of charge.
