    PT111 Millenium trigger pull

    Hello all,

    I am new to the forum. I just ran across it the other day. I was very excited to see that there was a forum specifically for Taurus firearms! I am a huge fan of Taurus. I have a PT111 and a Model 627 Total Titanium revolver. Anyhoo...

    My first question is in regards to getting a slightly lighter trigger pull out of my PT111. I have had the gun apart several times and I see that the weight of the trigger pull is governed by the strength of the firing pin spring. Is there anything I could do to lighten the spring. I realize that a great deal of care needs to be taken here as too light a spring could cause the cartridge to not discharge. I have polished all the bearing surfaces and that helped smooth out the slightly gritty feel I had when I bought the gun (I got it new about 4 years ago).

    I also have another question...is there a spring kit available for my 627 to fine tune it? I have looked around the internet some, but haven't been able to find anything. Thanks for all the help.

    Kevin

    i, too, would love to know how to lighten the trigger pull on the pt111 pro. my buddy just purchased a springfield xd-9. there are all manors of aftermarket trigger kits and what-not for big name, mass produced pistols like xd, or ruger, or whatever, but Im having a harder time finding things for the pt's. I do love taurus; I just want more options and more information.

    Wink PT 111 Millenium Pro trigger pull

    Hi. Here's what I've learned about trigger pull on the PT 111.

    The firing pin spring is just strong enough to fire the primer. The firing pin spring establishes the trigger pull. I have fired thousands of rounds through a DA pistol. This isn't too bad, just takes some getting used to. Just make sure the mechanism is clean and properly lubricated. If it's gritty or fouled better let a gunsmith look at it, or worse ( because of the time lag), let Taurus fix it.

    I like this gun for a carry.

    I bought a 9mm PT-111 Millennium Edition a number of years ago as my first CC firearm. It took around 400 rounds before the occasional stovepipes stopped, though that might have been due to limp-wristing or other hand movement directly due to the trigger pull as it is just too heavy and long. I feel like I'm fishing with it, pulling in a reel. The trigger must be pulled way further than one would expect out of just about any other handgun, to the point for me where it was distracting and I sometimes confused misfires with the gun's behavior.

    I learned that DAO is not for me if these long trigger pulls are normal for them. It was also a good lesson for me not to purchase a handgun I haven't tried on the range, or of that is not possible or practical one that hasn't been reviewed pretty extensively both in written articles and on video-based YouTube spots.

    I still carry it because of its size but make sure to put at least fifty rounds through it a month to make sure I'm practiced up on the unusual trigger pull. One day I'll buy a new CC unit, there have just been too many other things I have wanted to get But I wouldn't recommend this firearm for anyone that hasn't range-tested it first to make sure it is something you want.

    I "conceal carry" the PT-111 Millinium Pro 9M.M. on occation.I personally like the long trigger pull.Why?
    If I accidently brush up against something and slip the safety off?I still have the long
    trigger pull that would have to take place before an accidental firing.Those with "no slack-
    light trigger pulls" are scary in my opinion.I also carry the Ruger LCP,which also has the long trigger pull.I want my "conceal carry"pistols to shoot,only when I want them to.
