Made in USA – Stainless Steel Striker Guide for the Taurus G2C, G2S, G3, G3C, G3X, G3XL, PT111 G2

(33 customer reviews)


In stock


Improve the crispness and feel of your trigger and remove the lock out function of the Taurus security lock if equipped with the Lakeline Stainless Steel Striker Guide for the Taurus G2C, G2S, G3, G3C, G3X, G3XL, PT111 G2, PT140 G2, 709 and 740.


The striker guides on the G2C, G2S, PT111 G2, PT140 G2, 709 and 740 have a cutout to allow the Taurus Security System lock to immobilize the striker and make the pistol inoperable until unlocked.  That is all well and good, but if you remove your slide from your pistol and push the striker back like it is moved back by the trigger, you can feel it bump and catch on the hole for the locking system.  You can also feel it when you use the trigger, it makes the pull uneven and nonlinear just before the trigger releases.

To make the trigger better, we started experimenting with new striker guides.  We made them in plastic and polished stainless steel.  The polished stainless steel gave by far the most consistent, lowest friction trigger pull.  It also securely disables the Taurus security locking system.

Our striker guide is precision machined  and polished in 303 stainless steel.

Because PT111-G2 and PT140-G2 may require fitting of the Taurus Security System cam to install this part, we recommend installation only by a qualified gunsmith.  This product also disables the Taurus Security System lock when installed on a pistol if the pistol is so equipped.

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

    I have to say, the Stainless Steel Striker Guide for my 709 slim is fantastic. The Trigger pull is smooth now, no longer chunky from the striker hitting the hole in the factory guide (for the travel safety). This single part, worked like a “trigger job” on a glock, 1911, or beretta, making the shooting experience much more enjoyable. Thank you Lakeline!

    I thought this was not gonna make to much of a difference but WOW. This trigger is so crisp now its unreal. I recommend this to anyone that wants a smoother trigger and a crisper break. Im truely impressed. Great job Lakline.

    This is an upgrade I’d recommend for any Taurus G2c. It made a world of difference in the trigger on mine. Made the trigger pull very linear with no bump as the striker pin slides through the guide without the security feature hole which isn’t even incorporated in the G2c.

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

    Bought for pt111 g2, easy install no drilling needed. Noticeably smoother. Really simple straight forward modification. Changed both striker springs at same time.

  6. Bryant Montgomery

    I just installed it in my G2c. Makes a big difference.

  7. dakgreenmtnboy (verified owner)

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

  8. David hardin (verified owner)

    I have the earlier PT11 G2 millennium. It has the Taurus lock system. I installed this striker guide with no issue whatsoever. I have just ordered the stainless guide rod spring assembly. Really like the Lakeline products.

  9. Jordan Howell (verified owner)

    Thanx Lakeline. Fast shipping. Deff made the trigger crisper in double action mode. Being that I have the G2C theres no need for the hole in the old striker guide for the TSS (Taurus Safety System).

  10. Anthony Leon (verified owner)

    Just got the G3 and trigger felt good already, but after putting in the stainless striker guide…. All I gotta say is wow it makes a difference.

  11. Jerry Ware III (verified owner)

    I put the stainless striker guide in my PT111 G2 Millennium without any problems. I also added the stainless guide rod spring assembly at the same time. Definitely made a difference for the better. I’m going to order one for my 709 slim.

  12. Jeff Titone (verified owner)

    A great upgrade over the stock striker guide. A very easy and quick installation. The quality of the parts and customer service can’t be beat.

  13. Arnold Langston (verified owner)

    Brought this and the Guide Rod upgrade to go in my PT111 G2, but put in my G2S instead. I only put 30 rounds thru it so far, but I love it. I order another set for the G2, great Products from Lakeline.

  14. Arnold Langston (verified owner)

    I am two for two, I just installed the Guide Rod and Striker Guide upgrade in my PT111 G2. I already have it in my G2S works great, I did not have to do any mods in my PT111
    have not shot it yet, but if it handles like it does in my G2S I will be very happy. Great Company and Great Product and Super Fast Shipping. Also the prices here are better than anywhere I found these products on the internet.

  15. John Cloven (verified owner)

    Crazy fast shipping, even during the zombie apocalypse! It even comes with a handy disassembly tool. Ok, it’s really just a small zipper bag the parts come in, but if you place it over the striker, you can pull down on the spring and remove the keepers without any danger of them flying across the room! Required NO modification to the TSS to function properly in my G2. Thank you!

  16. Sean Mosier (verified owner)

    Fast shipping, and very easy install on my new G2C, no need to drill out on mine cause didn’t have the security system. Very impressed on how much it improved the trigger pull, plus looks a lot nicer without the old red plastic.

  17. stevess (verified owner)

    Added the stainless recoil assembly, and then I purchased and installed the stainless firing pin guide. It is amazing. The firing pin guide is like having a gunsmith do a trigger job. The trigger is now smooth and easier to pull. It eliminated the hard to pull action after a shot is fired. Before, it was almost as if the safety had been engaged, or sometimes it would not completely cycle the recocking and required to be bumped in order to pull the trigger. All of that is fixed now, and my G2S is now an amazing good shooting pistol.

    Crazy fast shipping got it for the Taurus G3 and the Taurus G3c have not the put them in yet hopefully soon I will contact the gunsmith and see how much it will cost me because I’m not doing it myself four stars is for the fast shipping

  19. danielpadgett1004

    I just put mine in a couple weeks ago haven’t took it to the range yet but I can feel the difference in the trigger. Its much smoother. Well worth the money thank you lakeline LLC for a great product.

  20. Jeffrey Kaplan (verified owner)

    I don’t know if I really needed this or not, but I replaced the plastic sleeve with this in my G2c mainly to get rid of the “Taurus Security System” cutout that is a remnant not used on this gun. I was hoping it would help smooth out the action, as there is a false catch in the system somewhere.

    If there was any difference with this swap, it was subtle at best.

    Easy self-install. Instructions were clear.

  21. ggleck (verified owner)

    Before I mention this part and a few others I had purchased its so important for others to know that the service Al and his company gives is top notch, no question to dumb, very fast replies, very fast shipping and superior quality far above the oem parts….truly great customer service, thanks very much! What a difference this makes, I imagine my g2c would have ran ok with the plastic part, but compared to this part it made no sense to me to use it whether it was polymer or a hard plastic. The trigger is also much smoother and not as gritty. Great upgrade!

  22. Michael Prettyman (verified owner)

    These made a noticeable trigger improvement in my G2c, G2s, & G3c. For the price of a G-Series, I can add a Striker Guide & Guide-Rod Assembly and still have a reliable, accurate gun for less cash than the ‘big boys’ charge!

    I come to this site to upgrade my S&Ws and all my G-series pistols. Now it’s time to start working on my sights.

    Thanks for all your help.

  23. Richard Viera (verified owner)

    Very well made, very fast shipping. Trigger is so much smoother. I have a different common up grade from a different company, but I think I’m going to order Lakeline’s version to replace it. Great job guys.

  24. Alfred Crawl (verified owner)

    I’ve been fond of her G2C since day one, I’ve never had a issue with the relatively long trigger pull, but there was a rough step half way through the pull that felt like something getting hung. I learned to pull the trigger in a way that minimized the feel of the striker hitting the hole I didn’t know existed. This stainless steel striker guide made a huge difference – no hang,, the trigger pull feels more linear and sturdy. Highly recommended. The G2c it that much more enjoyable.

  25. Michael Landon (verified owner)

    Definite improvement in trigger smoothness. I would recommend this for any G2c owner. Ditch that orange plastic thing!

  26. Mike Brown

    Perfect fit in my G3, ordered another for my G3C. Do yourself a favor and get rid of the stock striker guide. This product is well made and was a perfect fit.

  27. dallascalvey (verified owner)

    Great upgrade. Also purchased the recoil assembly and sights. Much better feeling now and will easily outlast the cheap plastic parts that came in the gun.

  28. Steve Hudson (verified owner)

    I replaced the OEM plastic striker guide in our new Taurus G3 with the finely machined Lakeline stainless steel striker guide and the Lakeline stainless steel recoil spring & guide rod assembly. I and my wife quickly realized a VERY noticeable improvement in the smoothness of the trigger pull (due to the new guide) – considerably smoother through the entire range of movement and a definite improvement in the crispness of the trigger releasing the striker. There may also be a slight reduction in the felt trigger pull weight with this change, but in this G3 it’s a little hard to tell for sure. None the less, the trigger pull is definitely better – smoother and crisper. The new guide rod & recoil spring assembly also seem to make for a smoother slide operation. The next item to replace is the OEM trigger with a Keep Tinkering SAO trigger that many Taurus owners swear by. I’ll also be polishing a few internal parts surfaces that should truly make this a stellar shooting platform. I definitely recommend these Lakeline products for other Taurus owners.

  29. Michael Hinton (verified owner)

    Excellent machine work when in flawlessly easily and gave the firing pin a little more snap reset is more audible There was also a little bit of change to the trigger smoothness it was harder to put the clips on after I installed into stainless steel striker guide thank you Lakeline

  30. Charles Luckey (verified owner)

    This took the “grittiness” out of the trigger pull. Loving it!
    I have the g2c, so I do not have the Lock Out “feature” of the PT111 g2, so this stainless sleeve without the unnecessary hole is wonderful. I get that Taurus has to cut a few corners to bring us such an affordable gun, but c’mon!

  31. Cal Schnatz Jr (verified owner)

    The fine people at Lakeline really did their homework on this little gem. Once I replaced the OEM plastic firing pin sleeve with the Stainless Steel one I could immediately feel the difference in the trigger action. It eliminated all of the “spongy” feel with crisp precise pulls. The installation was extremely simple without any need for specialty tools and the installation instructions were dead on. I would highly recommend this modification for anyone who owns a G series firearm

  32. landenjonathan2005

    Amazing product easy enough to install yourself

  33. Nathan McIndoo (verified owner)

    I could feel the difference and noticed the trigger was smoother through the take-up. Piece of mind knowing I replaced a polymer part with stainless steel is worth the price (which is a very fair price). I recommend this to others I know who own a G series.
