    <shrug>. I wanted to see how it would go with minimal maintenance. That day it was wet, and crud was starting to interfere.

    I'm a relatively new shooter, but I've shot over 1,200 rounds through my G2c since July with no malfunctions. I had one bad round that didn't fire, but I'm quite certain that was an ammo problem and not a gun issue.

    I hope that helps.

    Like and trust my G2C so much, bought the G3. I've had it a year, and a hair over a grand through it, no failures of any kind. Love these guns; very sad to hear some are having issues, but as mentioned above some (not all) of those were more user related than firearm related.

    They've cranked out and sold over 300K of the PT 111 G2/G2C firearms, so there is bound to be a couple bad ones, here and there. Trust my completely. Guy asked about it at the range today, and told him my G2C and G3 both cost less than a Glock 19, with plenty of change leftover. He got kinda bummed.

I just plink off of the porch with it. I replaced it in the carry rotation with a Ruger LC9 Pro which I like a lot. It has an outstanding trigger.

    I have 680 rounds through mine (purchased new in April of this year) and have had absolutely no hiccups with it whatsoever. Goes "Bang" every time with no FTEs or FTFs yet. I have not replaced anything (springs, etc.) on it either. It is a fun little gun to shoot. I paid $165.00 out the door for it after a Taurus rebate and feel that I got a steal with this gun at that price.

    Glock and other major gun manufacturers better watch out because Taurus is proving you don't have to pay $500.00 for a quality, striker-fired pistol. The G2C is proof of that and I think the new G3 is only going to reinforce the point! At least, based on everything I have researched on the new G3 anyway, as I don't have one of those (yet ).

    Personally OP, I think your worrying about something, that's not an issue. The Glocks have great reputations, and so does the G2C, so I guess I don't understand what for sure you would be worrying about. My G2C is great.

    Bought my G2C in December 2018, it has just south of 2000 rounds through it without a single failure of any kind. I bought another back in October but sold it to a friend as it had the sandpaper finish and I just couldn't get to like it. he has over 300 rounds thru it and it works great too, i plan on a stainless G2C in my near future.

    I know with the Sig P365 you can shoot 400 through it and no issues other than it getting really hot if you're not giving it time to cool off. The glock has no issues obviously after a lot of rounds through it...but it's got no safety and no loaded chamber indicator which I wish it had.

    Thanks
    I don't have a G2c, but I have three of the earlier G2. I have over 3,000 rounds through each of them. Two of them began showing signs of weakening recoil springs around 1,500 rounds, so I replaced them all with Lakeline stainless springs and guide rods. Frankly, though, I consider recoil springs a normal wear item, like changing tires on a car.

    I've had zero problems with them. Early on when I was testing different types of ammo, I had some hard primers with Winchester Western white box--about 2% failures. But only with that ammo. I've never had a failure to feed, fire, or eject with any other kind of ammo in any of the guns.

    I have about 4500+ rounds through it. Other than the occasional deep clean and a recent recoil spring upgrade (may not really have needed it though) it has been totally solid.

    I'd buy another one and likely will as a backup handgun in the event this one were out of commission or stolen.

    Looking at some carbines first though.

    I have 2 of the G2Cs. Both are in the over a little 1000 round count and are going strong. The one G2C is used but in excellent condition.

    If one looks hard enough at this board and now the archives there are is a majority of those with G2Cs that are happy campers.
