Stainless Steel Recoil Assembly for the Taurus PT111-G2

In stock


Recoil Assembly for the 9mm Taurus PT111-G2, G2S, G2C, G3X and G3C pistol that includes:

  • Fully Assembled Recoil Assembly
  • Dual springs for less felt recoil than a single spring assembly.

Lakeline Stainless Steel Guide rods have a reputation for being tough, really tough!  The Lakeline Recoil assembly is designed to be the last recoil assembly your Taurus G3C, G2C, G2S or PT111 G2 will ever need.  It is designed to be maintainable so springs can be changed if or when they eventually wear out.  This is NOT a throw away, that must be replaced when it needs new springs.  Spare springs are readily available for the Lakeline recoil assembly.  Now fully assembled!  Just field strip your pistol, lube it, and put it in.

With tens of thousands in use, these recoil assemblies have been proven for hundreds of thousands of rounds.  There is simply no more reliable recoil assembly for the Taurus.  No plastic, or thin drawn parts!  The recoil rod is a single piece with the flange,  the most highly stressed part, machined as one piece with the Guide Rod.  If your pistol is jammed from a failed factory or competitor’s recoil assembly email our customer support to get instructions on how to get your pistol back apart.

Don’t be TROLLED by false claims.  The reason that pistol manufacturers use DUAL SPRING assemblies in compact and sub-compact pistols is that having two spring constants to work with allows better control of the recoil pulse.  That means less felt recoil to the shooter and reliable function.  A single spring system isn’t new, the 1911 was designed with one over 100 years ago!  It’s cheaper to only have one spring, and no sleeve.  That approach just doesn’t perform as well. The most proven, reliable and soft shooting recoil assembly for the G2 series Taurus pistols is right here.

The springs are made from the best spring wire available and carefully finished to make sure that they will not over ride themselves or the flanges they ride on.  The Lakeline springs rates are also optimized and provide a smoother recoil pulse than the factory parts while still shooting all standard rounds reliably.  You don’t have to select a light spring, that doesn’t tolerate heavy loads, nor a heavy spring, that may not cycle regular range ammo with the Lakeline recoil assembly.  By optimizing the spring rates, choosing spring material that doesn’t weaken under use as much as typical and using better spring and sleeve lengths, this recoil assembly provides lighter recoil with range ammo all the way to +P rounds.

Sold in the Continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico only.

    Perfect for the g2. Highly recommended. Awesome job lakeline. Couldn’t ask for better service and shipping was super fast. 5 stars.

    One of the first upgrades that I made to My G2C and it really made a difference. I eventually changed to a Keep Tinkering Pseudo Back-strap trigger which is OUTSTANDING! Along with the SS striker guide, the little G2C really rocks!

  3. William James (verified owner)

    Just received my stainless guide rod and stainless striker guide today. Installed and then test fired. Trigger is now smooth as glass and POI closed a good inch. I checked this by re-installing the factory parts and test shooting on graphed in one inch sight target squares. Removed factory parts and re-installed stainless up grade parts. Yes it closed the point of impact. Am extremely satisfied with upgrade. Thank you Lakeline!

    Fast shipping, excellent quality spring and best of all customer service is by far the best. So far the G2C has performed extremely well, no FTF or any issues at all with any type of ammo.

    SUPER FAST shipping to Joliet, IL from Washington, ordered on 8/16, estimated by USPS for 8/21 delivery, received on 8/19! A little more “spring noise” than the stock polymer guide rod, but it’s really only noticeable because I do a ton of dry fire practice when idle/waiting as an owner of an I.T. company. Love it, looks way better, and extremely tight tolerances, no wobble like in the stock guide rod, seems a tiny bit lighter of a pull in my opinion, but it could be due to that slop in the stock guide rod. Will update if any issues after use at the range.

    Stock recoil spring on my G2c lost its oomph somewhere between 1500 and 2k rounds. Rather than warranty it with Taurus, I got this one. Spring feels like a little heavier pull, which helps recoil control. I don’t know if that is real or perceived due to why I did the replacement.

    And the stainless rod looks better in my stainless slide.

    Better than new.

    I have never been a fan of Taurus firearms. Have owned a few over the years that wasn’t my cup of tea. Recently received a G2C as a gift, and due to sentimental reasons I kept it. Thanks to Lakeline LLC, and their products, the G2C has grown to be one of my favorite ccw’s! This stainless steel recoil spring assembly was the first upgrade and man what a difference it makes! I followed up with the stainless steel striker guide & springs which are superb as well! Great products that brought a mediocre handgun to top tier in a few minutes! On top of great products, Lakeline has some of the FASTEST processing and shipping that I have ever seen! Keep up the great work Lakeline!!

    I bought the larger version for my G2C .40 but wow, what a great upgrade. Simple drop in. I imagine it would have ran ok with the oem polymer set, but I had doubts about the integrity of a part that is under such stress while firing and the rod is made of polymer so I could envision the springs binding up or worse. This is a drop part and a must have part if you are wanting reliability and just knowing how much better this is than the original part instills confidence in it overall.
    I also must mention just as great as the part is is how amazing and great the customer service is from Al and his company, no question was unanswered or too dumb, very fast replies no matter the time of day and very very fast shipping. Thanks Lakeline!

    I have used these assemblies in my 9mm Taurus G2c, G2s, and G3c. Looks & feels more durable than stock. Since I trust these weapons with my life, well…

    They add weight to the front which helps overall feel & in re-acquiring the target.

    First change I make, along with LLC’s milled striker guide, to G-series sidearms .

    Thank you for reasonable prices, great service and quick shipping! I’ll Be Back!

    Taurus makes a good gun for the money, but scrimps in some places where they shouldn’t – like the guide rod. If you use it for a range gun only, it’s fine – but if your going to trust the firearm with your life – better upgrade. Perfect fit for my G2 PT111, Keep your plastic assembly for a spare. Shipping to Missouri was very fast! Going to order 2 more for my other G3C’s!

  15. chuck.mcclellan (verified owner)

    Ordered this early evening on a Thursday and received it on Monday. Fast shipping. Read the instructions as Lakeline states how to orient the end of the big spring to the top of the slide. Hmmm! Wonder why. Curious mind! Did as they said. Oil it, which should be a ‘no-brainer’. First thing I noticed was when retracting the slide that the feeling was smoother with the slide release being just a tad more robust. I’m satisfied totally. is is slightly heavier than the OEM and may reduce the recoil impulse. Guess I’ll find out when the ‘ammo drought’ is over. Good job Lakeline!!

  16. dallascalvey (verified owner)

    Excellent. The stock recoil spring is polymer and was bent up without even firing the G2C once. Newer one is much smoother and will easily outlast it. Also ordered the striker guide and some sights.
