I bought one of these at the Academy store yesterday, they had a huge sale going on. I have been looking on the auction side at extra magazines. Does anyone know if the Millennium pro will take the magazines as the older model millennium? Both are modeled the PT111, one is the Millennium and the other is the Millennium Pro. The pro is 12 rounds the basic millennium is 10 rounds.

I don't think that they are the same mag, but I thought someone here might know for sure.

It looks like a pretty good little gun, I have never owned one.

I do not think that the mags are the same. I do think that maybe the Kel Tec P11 mag might work. I have not seen it anywhere, but by chance, does anyone have both these guns and have ever tried? They both take the same Pearce grip, I am not for sure, I am just going to have to find a P11 mag and check.

I think the sale ends today. I'm considering getting one of these. What's the difference between the millennium and the millennium pro?

I think that the major difference is the length of the grip and it allows for two more rounds in the mag. That is the only difference that I have been able to find.

Sorry I don't have a clue about the mags, but It looked like the pro had a little more grip "checkering", might have nicer sights too, the sights on my Millenium seem a little plastic (it says they are Heine). But for the special price, it's a decent pistol. A little bit of Chaos at Academy on Friday and I bet they sold out that day. I also picked up some Remington high-velocity .22 ammo that came with a free knife with "snake-skin" on it, made in China but kinda cool.

One other difference is the trigger gaurd. The Millenium Pro has a wider trigger gaurd with a serrated area on the front for the weak hand finger to grip. I found this out when I purchased a holster at a local gun shop that happened to have a used PT111 in the display case. I used it to make sure tha holster was the right one. But when i tried to put my Millenium Pro in it it wouldn't fit.

I am thinking about getting one of those hogue slip on grips to put on my new little taurus... I think it will make that checking feel a little more comfortable.

I have seen a couple of mags on the auction side, I do like the feel of the mag with the little pinky extension on it.

A Houge Handall Jr. would probably feel good on that pistol. I like the addition of palm swells. Put one on my wifes Kahr CW45, feels like a new gun.

dump it, I owned one and it was terrible for misfeeds, not to mention the awful trigger pull.

2 guys I work with have had them also, and had the same misfeeds problems. One of them also had the rear sight fall off after about 200rds.

I bought one but soon took it back to Cabela's and got a full refund. It was the Millennium Pro in .45 and it kept imprinting a wierd striker print onto the spent primer. Striker on the Millenium is round and comes out of a round hole. Striker print on the primer should have been round also. But instead it was more like a "comma" image that went from the center of the primer to the edge of the primer pocket. I don't know how or why it did that, but I do know that something like that is not designed into or is desirable in a gun. To me it was just a sign that something was not right and therefore something might go wrong when I need to depend on the gun to protect my life.

But that is just me. Many here will say as long as a gun shoots each and every time, little things like I mentioned above don't matter to them. But when a mechanical device does something unexpected, I want to replace it with one that only does what it is designed to do.

^That firing pin swipe happens when the gun starts to unlock before the firing pin has fully retracted. It may still function fine, but it's definitely not healthy.


A nephew has a PT111, he likes it, but then again he doesn't know very much about guns and is one of those self-defense gun-owners who take it out once a year and shoot a mag or two and call it good.



I meant, it is my opinion that...

My Taurus Millenium Pro 45 has about a thousand rounds thru it with no jams, misfeeds, hiccups or any other problem. Most people who have problems with these lightweight pistols are not locking their wrists tight.
