Hey All,
Need whatever information you can provide. I tried contacting Taurus and their only answer was PROPRIETARY.

I would LOVE to put a holographic aka Reflex sight on my PT111 G2 but I cant find any mounts that say they fit. Are there any out there or am I on my own fabricating whatever I can? What dovetails fit the G2's (will a PT92/99 sight fit into a G2 dovetail)?

Any help would be awesome.

Thanks
Jim

A mounting plate that replaces the rear sight should be able to be fabricated. It still might take adding some mounting holes to the slide.

I'm curious, why do you want a holographic sight on the G2? I think of those as range sights, but maybe that is old fashioned thinking.

You mean ghost rings? They're awesome for a range- you'll be able to pick stuff off at 30+ yards no problems with them- but I've been told they are terrible as carry sights. Not sure what you're wanting to do. Can't help on installation though, sorry.

I truthfully don't think that's a good enough pistol to warrant mounting a reflex sight to, and that's coming from someone who loves the gun and carries a 140 G2 every day. I'm more the type that believes those kind of sights are best used on pistols with a larger frame and/or slide combination designed for accuracy in target shooting. If anything I would recommend getting one of the sights from Lakeline because they're something much more conducive to the pistols general design.

Could you use a G2 in a competition? As long as the rules say so i don't see a problem with it. Would it be my first choice to use in competition? Most definitely not, i would prefer a 1911 or 92 with a 5" barrel because the longer sight radius and overall length is inherently more accurate in my hands than the G2. I can do just fine with mine in practice, but I'm not looking for groups the size of loose change from it either. If I'm hitting in a group smaller than my palm, i consider that more than accurate enough to protect myself with.

If you want to try and figure it out, please feel free to do so. Don't let what i say deter you from your goal, I'm just being honest about what i consider the disadvantages of using the G2 platform for a base. It's a great carry pistol with a solid design and good ergonomics, but it was never designed to be a target pistol. I'm not sure if it would even hold up to the abuse truthfully.

Ah. Looks like that'd snag on the draw.

Just throw truglo TFO sights on it and call it a day. I’m sad I bought my PT709 and wish I would’ve gotten the pt111 because there are more aight and holster options available for it.

Has anyone ever done anything with this? I have a focusing issue and a reflex sight greatly aids in my shooting but I want a small package. I have high end full size guns and small guns that are of higher monetary value than the PT 111 G2 but for some reason I love the gun. I know I could send my slide out to get machines but really don’t like the idea of putting a $230 optic on a $220 gun and then spend $250 on having it cut.

Just my opinion, but for any shooting that requires optics, I would not use a 3.25" barrel compact handgun. Anything more than upgrading or painting the dots is overkill. Again, just my opinion, take it or leave it.

My personal opinon is the G2 is just a self defense gun. good for up to about 10 feet. for that distance the stock sights seem just fine.

I went truglows for my gun and I pocket carry it. That optic might print a bit much for me.

I'm not gonna knock tossing money at a gun since I literately put the value of mods back into my 2 Taurus guns to make them what they are. Folks say buy a gun you want but even Sig folks with $1400 guns are still tossing money into them. Just be aware once you start your journey and decide to sell later, you ether take a huge loss or find someone who sees the value in the mods you done.

Galloway precision has the adapter plate for 26 dollars. I have some high dollar and budget pistols and irregardless of peoples opinions I believe the g2 millinial I have is a great shooting gun and have ordered the adapter plate and am going to put a medium red dot reflex sight on mine.
