      If your search involves a gun holster for concealed carry, it is important to take weapon size into consideration. A large handgun is often more difficult to conceal than a smaller or compact model. As a rough rule of thumb, the larger the chosen handgun, the more challenging it will be to conceal. This seriously [...]

Taurus Millennium Pro Holsters

Posted by 5593907a on January 13, 2009

Produced by Taurus out of Brazil, the Millennium Pro handgun series was introduced in 2005.  It was seen an enhanced version of the standard PT-111 that Taurus introduced in 2003. The Millennium line was specifically designed for the civilian concealed carry firearms market, and to be sold as a backup handgun for law enforcement.

Taurus Millennium series handguns are constructed with injection molded polymer frames, and the slides are available in blued carbon steel, stainless steel, or a titanium version.The blued model is the most popular out of those three. The Mill Pro series is available in the following cartridges: .32 ACP, .380, 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP. Depending on the model and caliber, magazine capacities vary between 6, 10, and 12 rounds.

The Millennium line includes several innovative safety features including a positive firing pin block as well as the “Taurus Safety Latch”, a transfer bar safety which prevents firing of the pistol unless the trigger is pulled. Together these safeties assure that the pistol will not fire if it is accidentally dropped; selected models have been certified as satisfying the California Drop safety requirement. All Millennium models also include a slide-mounted safety lever.

The Millennium Pro is generally considered the 3rd generation of the Taurus Millennium series.  While each of the generations looks similar, they are fairly different.  However, the largest differences can be found in the Mill Pro series as compared to the first two generations. The Millennium Pro model has a number of enhanced features including a higher magazine capacity, lighter frame, more ergonomic grip, loaded chamber indicator, integrated accessory rail.

From a holster perspective, nearly all the PT Millennium Pro series are built on the same frame (PT-111 Mill Pro, PT-140 Mill Pro, PT-145 Mill Pro).  As such, most any pistol holster for any of these models will fit any of the other models.  For example, a holster for the PT-111 Mill Pro will usually also fit a PT-140 or PT-145 Mill Pro

It’s important to point out that there are substantial design differences between the Mill Pro series and the standard Millennium series that will affect holster fit.  As the Pro series had an picatinny rail and the standard Millennium series doesn’t, the holsters are not interchangeable between the two.  A holster for a Mill Pro series will most likely fit a standard series, but not vice-versa.

Personally, I’ve found the Taurus Millennium pro series to be an first-class value for the money, offering features and performance that are generally found on more costly handguns.
