    "Can the Taurus sights be replaced" FAQ

    I believe the language of this FAQ with respect to the Millenium Pro is at best unclear and at worst misleading. It suggests that the screws on the top of the front and rear sights on my PT111 indicate its a second generation model. Nothing could be further from the truth: it's a third generation of recent manufacture. Of course, the sights are also dovetailed into the slide -- adding to confusion!

    I have a Millenium Pro PT 145 and it has the 3 dot system and they are not dove tailed. This is a 3rd Generation Model that was made for the state of California market.

    Tim- your pistol has set screws, it's true, but these don't hold the sights on- they just keep them from slipping in th dovetail. The original Millenium had a sight set that was literally helsd on with screws.

    Without the set screws, the sights would move, and could slide out. So the design of the set screw is to hold the sight piece in place.

    The dovetail is the key. Every dovetailed sight I've ever seen has a set screw on top of the actual sight. 2nd and 1st gen had a screw that kept the sight on the slide.
