My opinion of the PT-945 is that said model in particular is a very nice, hard working, reliable piece. I have owned and shot with a Millenium Pro .45 model 145BP and a Millenium .40 model 140BP. They had more problems than any other auto loader I have ever owned. I purchased my PT-945 approx. 6 months ago, and shoot with it at least 2 nights a week. I have spent more than 2000 rounds through it with no problems at all, ever. The question of whether or not Taurus is reliable? My answer is.. It depends on the model.
