    I just brought this gun home today and as I was working with the slide to remove it, the trigger locked back and the slide is locked in place. I can't get the tear down button to work either. I'm new to this stuff folks. Help me out?

    The mil pro pt111 doesn't have a "tear down button". You actually remove the entire lever by pulling it out after you rotate it clockwise. And then you pull the trigger(like a glock) to move the slide forward.

    Isn't the pro different from the G2 millennium?

    Idk. But I wouldn't think they would be crazy different. Generally if one type of gun from a certain manufacturer breaks down a certain way- most guns in that related line break down the same way. Yes to the trolls. There are exceptions that abound. But as a general rule if thumb it works like that. Double check the manual. It'll tell ya how to break it down. Also make sure the frame key locking mechanism isn't caught somehow(my wife's was locked when she looked at it the first time and even the dealer took a minute to catch it).

    Per the manual:

    http://www.taurususa.com/pdf/pistol_manual.pdf

    CARE AND MAINTENANCE
    A. The firearm may be cleaned and lubricated under normal conditions
    without the need of any disassembly.
    B. In special conditions, such as repairs, when disassembling is necessary, it
    is recommended the firearm be returned to the factory or sent to a competent
    gunsmith or to the importer.
    C. In order to keep a firearm in perfect condition it must be kept clean and
    covered with a slight film of good quality oil to prevent corrosion. This is
    especially necessary after use.
    D. For normal cleaning of handgun not used or kept in storage for some time,
    it is necessary to rub it with a lightly oiled cloth. In the same way proceed
    with the bore of the barrel. The excess of oil must be removed, but a thin
    protecting film should remain. Also the dust should be removed from all
    crevices with a small, clean brush.
    E. For cleaning after shooting, it is of special importance that all residues of
    powder be removed from barrel and other adjacent areas subject to such
    deposits, using an appropriate brush. If particles of lead are detected in
    barrel they must be scrubbed with a brass brush, drenched with oil. Once
    cleaned, lubrication should be done as above described. After shooting 200
    shots in a row, your firearm should be cleaned before further shooting.
    WARNING: Firing more than 200 shots in a row without cleaning your firearm
    may create a hazardous situation.
