Like I said earlier, with these guns you either luck out and get a good one, or you end up with a $250 turd. Apparently there are more good ones than bad out there because a lot of people like 'em. The biggest problem is the complete absence of support if you end up with a bad one. Taurus will not sell spare parts to consumers, and if you have an issue you have no choice but to send it back to them and hope it gets returned fixed and before you end up so old you forgot you ever even had it.The funny thing is, I've been carrying the G2c for half a year now. I bought 2 spare mags the same day I picked it up, and I've fed it S&B 115, 124's and a whole mess of handloads: lead, rn, tc, hp, coated and jacketed .. 95gr, 115, 124, 135, 147.. Lotsa' testing, all about 4 to 8 yards. (where I'd expect trouble)
Never had a single FTF or FTE. Never had a magazine act squirrely. I usually just drop a round in the chamber, slam it closed and slap in a full mag for carry. At the range I either thumb in a few rounds and rack it, or I use the maglula to pack the mag.
I am happy to report that I was so, so wrong on that. Not only do they make a G2 .45 but also a .40, and also a .40 G2C! people are eating these things up and Bud's for example is totally sold out on every model, color and caliber. Tell you what, I don't know about a G2C in .40 - talk about a punisher! I want a G2C in 9mm and G2s in 9mm and .40.That's interesting about the Taurus lifetime repair policy. I haven't come close to needing it but its good to know, I forgot to mention earlier that another thing I like about my old G1 24/7 is the trigger - its light and smooth in DA or SA. It has a lot of travel in DA but for some reason this doesn't bother me - I guess its because its so smooth and light. And something else I've never needed but I like having it - the repeating DA trigger in case of a misfire. It's also convenient for dry-firing practice since it stays in DA until the slide cycles. You don't need any practice in SA mode because it is 'touchy'. In fact I have doubled before, basically unintended bump-firing on the forward motion of the pistol following the initial recoil. The solution to this was to always use 'follow-through' and concentrate on keeping the trigger pulled until the gun settles. For some reason I continue to like the thing and its being a 13-shot .45, it sometimes resides in my night stand or in the console or door pocket of a vehicle.
I don't think they make a .45 in this style anymore which is another reason to keep it.
