I have a older 9 MM G2 that I have about 500 rounds thru it and a newer 9 MM G2C that has near 200 rounds, never a problem with either,
The new on does not have a internal lock like the old one. It had newer looking cleaner roll marks on the slide and the frame has a new texture design, I did notice some slight machining differences of the slide's ejection port. There are other differences I am sure, but the biggie is the absence of the lock.

I bought the G2C to see the differences and it is really Ho-Hum to me, I do like the changes, but other than the lock and maybe the ejection port, it seem so …. cosmetic.

The PT-140 G2C is actually shipping as of late April. I did buy a new PT-140 G2C and shot it last month too. eleven rounds of Underwood 150 Grain JHP (I think Nosler Bullets), and forty 165 Grain JHP of new LAX Ammo. I shot at a 8x12" plate, about 25 yards away, all went "bang" and all went "Ping". I need to shoot it more and will soon, some different Underwood and a lot more LAX and Fiocchi. Oh and I took it out of my pocket to shoot it. I wear Wrangler jeans and it fills, but fully hides, in my front pocket, in a holster. I was used to the kind of weird feeling trigger form the two 9 MM's. My 40 trigger seemed better. These models have adjustable rear sights, lateral and vertical (not really windage to me as it takes a Allen wrench and not elevation as it needs the same wrench, but close) Anyway not too shabby for the $205 I paid.

I bought two PT-111s a few years ago. Both started having FTE issues right off the bat so they had to go back to the mother ship. It took four months for Taurus to replace two simple springs, but after I finally got them back they've been running fine. I did put one on consignment as I really have no need for two, but since it hasn't sold I may just take it back and hand it to a relative. As a defense gun it has what it takes and is a comfortable gun to shoot for its small size. The lawyer lock would bother me if it was an expensive gun that I cared about, but I'm not going to whine about it on a $250 pistol. These were my EDC's until the even smaller SIG P365 came out. The SIG is a better gun of course but it's also twice as expensive.
