wanted a pt145 in black and stainless but found one in tan and black and fell in love with it. It says DAO and 3dot sight.I have searched the 'net' for any info and got zero. My question is ,is this a new gen 3 in tan or a older gen 2 that nobody wanted? TIA ???

This is a common question. Although I don't know the answer, I seem to remember reading about the three letters in the serial indicating when it was manufactured. Also, on the Taurus web-site home pge, under Customer Services, they list "Find My Model". Maybe you can get info there. You may have to call them on the telephone.
Also, if it is marked "Millennium" it is older than if marked "Millennium Pro". Good luck.

Forgive me if my "expertise" isn't what it should be, but I thought:

1st generation says Millennium on one side (without the PRO).
2nd generation says Millennium PRO on one side, PT145 on the other.
3rd generation says Millennium on one side, PT145 PRO on the other.

got my new gun.It's gen 3 with DA/SA and heinie straight 8 sights. BUT it is not TAN it is olive drab. BUD'S GUN SHOP said that's the way they come now ,but still ad them as TAN and black. be careful if you want tan and not olive drab.

Below is the website which shows the tan with black slide for sale at Budsgunshop.com. I also would like to know which generation it is. I would like to see the other side of the gun to see the model number and serial number. If anyone has purchased this gun from Bud's, can you tell us what the markings are on the right side?

Thanks
