i just purchased a PT111 G2, but I am going to order a stainless steel guide rod before firing. Like the Glock, the original flexes.

I had a PT111 about 8 years ago. I bought it new. I used it for a concealed carry class. It gave me trouble from the start. Light strikes and misfires. It started as a once in a while problem. After a few hundred rounds it misfired more than it fired. I returned it to where I purchased it. They let me purchase a Ruger after giving me a refund. That was my second bad Taurus. I have not bought another.

I have a couple of G2s as well. thousands of rounds thru one of them.
In the beginning it would ahve some feeding issue when reloading a mag on an locked back slide..
Thats been disappearing with breakin and now only happens 1 in 6 times.

Rick Not the same pistol when compared to the G2 version . Clean your mags when you clean your pistols and change the springs on occasional . We do were out too . Some failures to chamber or fire can be low quality ammo that avalitlble today . WWB can be good ammo or junk depending as much on lot number as anything .

If your having 1 in 6 failures still using good ammo spend in homes for some TLC . My daughters pt111g2 is at around 2500 rounds and has been 100% reliable from the first round fired . Only reloads and premium HP are used .

Put in my new SS Guide Rod with new springs. The springs are larger and stronger. Will let you know how it comes out.

my 1 in 6 was when putting in anew fresh mag on an empty slide.
And it cna be 100% prevented by hold the gun sideways a bit.
Its more common with aftermarket mags.

But I needed to mention it for completeness sake.
I do use the guns fairly hard with a lot of rounds per session..

The usual cause for jammed ammo is the feed ramp. Might be a little rough. Sometimes all it takes is a pencil eraser or a buffing with a dremel. No grinding. This usually cures most feeding problems. Especially with JHPs.

The reload problem (failure to chamber new round when reloading a fresh mag into an empty gun w/ a locked back slide) is more rare now.

This is the only issue I ever had.
I own 5 of these pistols now and my 2 shooters between them had probably 3000-4000 rds thru them
