    Congrats on the G2S ! I think it will serve you well. My son has one and it's a nice gun, the trigger is a bit stiff and he needs to put a few hundred more rounds through it so that will go away. But, it's a great self defense package that's on par with the S&W Shield in size and specs.

    <quote> It is, it's a few posts on that issue and it's a split between trigger swaps and file down the hook. I'm not sure if Taurus switched out the striker guides in the S models but the Cs still had the older G2 ones. When you cock the slide back and look under, if you see orange it's the G2 style and yellow is G3. The G2 has a cut out in the striker guide for a internal gun lock no longer used. That cut sometimes causes issues so I swapped it wit the SS striker guide from lakeline.

    I do have the G2 model style orange one. I might look into swapping that out as well.

I hope they keep making it for a very long time.
    I would love to get my hands on the G2S, but for some reason, all the gun stores around my area, never seem to stock any of them...only seem to stock the G2C's.

    Go to the Shoot Point Blank in Greenwood, and ask them transfer one from Blue Ash or Dayton. Or you could call Blue Ash or Dayton to see how they handle selling to people from out of state. If you do hit the Dayton store, give me a yell and we’ll hit the range.
    (according to the web page Dayton has 4, and Blue Ash 3. Web page lists it at$205)

    It was the first one I've ever seen one as well. Seen lots of G2Cs though.

    Yes, congrats on the G2S. It's a fine pistol.

    I picked up a G2S a few months ago. I had the same trigger drag experience you did. It improves the more rounds downrange you put through it. There are aftermarket triggers that you can install if it becomes a big issue, but I think you'll notice it less as time goes by.

    I notice it mainly in the take up from the initial first pull. After that, I shoot from reset and it is mostly a non-issue.

    Greetings!
    The very first tupperware pistol I purchased back in the day was a 709...which seems to be the G2C's baby-daddy, and they were running about $275 back then - so $260 isn't a bad price at all! I got my G2C from a local dealer that matched what the online giants would have charged less FFL fees ($15) and sales tax (6%) so a lot of those on-line prices should be taken with a grain of salt.

    Save the receipt.
    The dates on the next Taurus rebates may pleasantly surprise you.


    Stern Shot:

    I bought some Lakeline bits for the G2C which also seem to be intended for the G2S.
    I got the SS striker guide hoping to alieviate the 'catch' in the trigger. It helped a little but I'm thinking that I'm going to have to finish running about 500 rounds through the weapon before I do some trigger work.

    Lakeline was fast, courteous, reasonably priced AND they only charge postal rates for their "handling fees" which in my case was something like $3.

    I recommend them!!

    Thanks for your very detailed post. I will probably get the SS recoil assembly and striker guide just because I hate plastic internals on guns.

    Plastic frames and triggers are acceptable I guess.
