This may have been answered, but, what is the size difference between the PT111 and the PT111 G2?

The PT 111 has a 10 round mag. a different trigger guard even different from the Pro models...the [email protected] are 12 round, different profile of the trigger guard and have a place under the frame ( rail?) for a lite, laser... There are laser sights for the Millennium PRO and the [email protected] series.. but not the original PT 111 Millennium.
Bummer.. I have 2 of them...but I still like the smooth trigger on the first gens, SO much better..

size ? no diff. inside and trigger changes. The Gen1 has a WONDERFUL trigger. The G2 G3 have the 2 piece finger eater triggers. I have the G2 for my wife- fits her hand (my #1 criteria for a pistol). Sadly, Crimson Trace only like the PT 709 for making a triggerguard Laser.

So true! One of the main reasons that my late production first gen PT111 will stay as one of my favorite CCW's.

Also, the First Gen PT111's, like the early 24/7's, were built with a full Aluminum Sub-Framewith full length slide rails, inside a Polymer overshell.
It should also be noted that the Steyr M9 and L9 series Pistols as well as the S&W M&P series Pistols share this type of construction.

The newer Taurus Polymer Framed Pistols are built like Glocks with Rail Inserts for the Polymer Frame, which while entirely adequate, is definitely a cheaper construction.

Lawsuit be damned, I love it and I'm keeping it!!!! :shooter:
