    A Quick and Easy way to get the Gritty Feeling out of your Taurus Trigger?

    I did a little experiment with my Taurus pistols to see if I could accelerate the smoothing up of the trigger on my new PT140 G2.

    I found a way that worked wonders, and takes about 10 minutes, on my pistol. I would be eager to hear if it works for others.

    Here is a write up on it:

    Excellent post. Those of us that just have one have nothing to compare. I will will say my g2, which has about 300 rounds, shows the same wear on the slide and connector, and gets smoother with each range trip. Love this pistol. Also love the Lakeline recoil assembly, thanks Alfonse.

    Thanx for Posting this! I'm using straight 30w Motor Oil in the Action Parts of my late production pre-G2 PT111 with very good results.

    A gentleman on Facebook commented on this as well. He used STP, which has zinc based friction reducers in it. That might be a very good choice and would be easier to work in than grease. Of course, I haven't had any of that laying around for decades. Here is what he had to say:

    Noticed a grittiness to mine when taking up the slack in S/a been scoping around on mine, I just did mine in that area with a small amount of stp, and it is better, also a small touch at the transfer bar in the trigger housing and was butter.

    Took my 2 G2's & 709's out of the safe today to check for grittiness. Fortunately they're smooth as butter!

    I just dosed my newest one with the less amenable trigger with some Red Line 75 90 gear oil dispensed in a leftover medication syringe from some kitty illness. Feels a little better but smells kind of medicinal. Need to get that sucker out and send another couple of hundred rounds down the pipe.

    It is difficult to gain the truth from the media in this age. It is a huge puzzle with small pieces. In order to solve it, one must have perseverance, all of the pieces, imagination, time, and most of all...the desire to put the picture together. Our real trouble is that there are far too few people today with the desire to do this.

    My first G-2 was smooth, the one I bought on Black Friday, the one God is gonna get me, for not having shot it yet, I need to try this prescription for, and I have plenty of insulin syringes from a past medical situation of a family member. First Taurus I ever had with a gritty trigger.
