A look back into Taurus' Past

Ask a gun enthusiast what is special about Brazil, and they will most likely answer, Forjas Taurus. Taurus is one of the largest small-arms manufacturers in the world. They are not a new company, having begun production of firearms in 1941. Taurus entered the US market in 1968, where it has increased in popularity because of its affordable and well-made handguns.

They lost a lot of customers between 2013 and 2015 because of a lawsuit that forced them to voluntarily recall approximately one million of their guns. The lawsuit claimed that many of their firearms—including the Millennium Pro, the predecessor to the Millennium G2 pistols discussed here—were defective. There were some reports of a faulty striker block safety which failed and allowed their guns to “drop fire” (or discharge when it was dropped).[1] Taurus has claimed that the guns were not defective, but issued the recall and made significant changes to their Generation 2 (G2) models.

It was sold in 2015 to new Brazilian owners, who quickly replaced the management team in the US division. This change, in addition to a redesign of their firearms, helped turn Taurus’ reputation around in the gun world. Today, they are renowned for producing affordable guns of a high quality.

Rest assured: there is no chance that current model Millennium G2 will “drop fire.” It has been rigorously tested by both scientists and experienced gun owners.
