This with my LGS told me the other day, and that Taurus was going to do something new, any truth to this?

Who knows. To this firearm consumer the management of Taurus seems to make arbitrary and capricious decisions. Surely there's a method to their madness. I keep waiting for them to roll a new line....and waiting....and waiting.....

Good discussion. Good question. Am going to move this thread to the MilPro section.

I've seen many manufacturers stupidly discontinue their best-selling firearms simply because they were releasing a new model and didn't want the older best-selling model to potentially hinder the sales of their new model.

Ironically, the end result is typically lower gross earnings over the fiscal year because there were plenty of folks who wanted the discontinued firearm yet had no interest whatsoever in the latest offering. So all the company did was lose money by discontinuing their best-seller without helping the sales of their latest firearm at all.

Actually if you follow that link and click on each model, the G2 IS NOT shown to be discontinued. They list all models - if you click on 24/7 fro instance it shows being discontinued

I could see them drop it and replace it with "Airsoft" models

Cheaper to produce. Could fulfill gun replacements with a lot less expense. I
haven't read anywhere they have to send you a gun in any particular caliber or
that shoots any particular projectile. They just have to replace the gun.

Looks like the PT-111's are the only thing left they are replacing settlement guns with.

All the Best,

Looks like the aluminum models and the ghetto gold and the ones they still sell but with bulls head grips.

I had heard something along this line a few months ago. If I recall it's not a true discontinuation, but more of a rerelease of the same but with some minor updates or twerks involved. Not too unlike GLOCK going Gen1, to Gen2, Gen3, Gen4 and now Gen5. However with the Taurus line I believe they are also changing the model number rather than going with G2, G3 designations.

If so, I bet it's because there will be a Millenium G3.

This may dovetail with the announcement earlier this year that the lifetime warranty no longer exists for discontinued models. Five years after the date of being discontinued IIRC. It would be a corporate policy of planned obsolescence if true.
