    There are 3 different generations of the PT111. I can't tell you with certainty what the differences between all of the generations actually are, but here's what I understand:

    I do know the first generation was not a "PRO," and the second and third generations are "PRO" models. I have read a lot of things stating that the first gen's had a lot of problems, and they fixed many of them in the later gen's. I think that the first and second gen's have a DAO trigger, and the third has a SA/DA trigger. The first gen's look much different than the Pro models.

    Wikipedia tries to address some of the questions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taurus_Millennium_series
    It was discussed in part here: Hmmmm, Just bought a Taurus Millenium Pro 9mm

    Hope all of this helps, and doesn't confuse.

    Here's a pic of a Gen 1 PT145:



    And a pic of a Pro version:

    JohnDeere is spot on. The Mil-Pro is the latest version. I own the Mil-Pro PT-145 and really love it. Pass on the Millenium and set your sights on the Mil-Pro.

    Are they still selling both? The one she chose is brand new so i would assume it is a gen 3 model. SHe get's it tonight. I know she loved the weight and feel of it. In no way did she like my Glock 40 or my KelTec PF9 ( one was to big and blocky the other was to small and light.). At least she won't take my toy's. LOL

    It wouldn't surprise me to still see a new Millenium in the display case. When I bought my Sig Sauer P220 Compact a couple years ago, there was a NIB P245 in the case along side the Compact.

    Based on all that I have read, this statement seems to be the overwhelming consensus. Based on my experiences, however, I have to disagree. My brother and I have identical PT111's (non Pro, gen 1's) and have had absolutely no problems whatsoever with either, with over a thousand rounds through mine and several hundred through his. I suppose we could have lucked up and got some good ones, though.

    OK. Picked up her new baby last night. It is a Pro series. Just marked on the side of the slide that i did not look at. Now I get to go search for ammo for her today. Gander had no 9mm in stock and jacked the price of there 40S&W almost double. They had 250 count UMC range ammo for 70.00 a box last thurs. and last night it was up to 139.00 a box. What a .

    Oh forgot to mention wife took owners man. to work with her today for lunchtime reading material. at least she wants to learn about her gun.

    Awesome!!! Mine still doesn't understand my interest in handguns and why I have to have so many. of course, cameras is another story.

    I had nothing but problems with my PT111 Millenium I guess it was a gen one...it was used and bought in 2001 or 2002 it was bought by a family member who passed it on to me, anywho, I couldn't stand it and got rid of it after only putting 300 rounds through it.
