Shopping for this model has proven to be a little difficult, which is part of why we made this review for you. Especially when it comes to aftermarket parts, not too much has been made that will accommodate the G2. So, before you buy anything, always do your research and make sure youâre not buying an accessory for an older Taurus
illennium model. The PT111 G2 is also already a great compact weapon, and there isnât much you need to improve upon. We selected the accessories listed below to improve accuracy for different situations, so your choice will be most affected by what your needs are.

Tractiongrips Overlay Grip Tape
Materials â One of the cheapest Taurus PT111 G2 upgrades you can buy is a grip decal from Tractiongrips. The overlay comes as a set of three pieces, in all black, and they stick with an adhesive around the original grip of your pistol. The grip is also semi-permanent, meaning itâs possible to remove it if necessary, but itâs a little tricky.
In addition, there is a tough, raised bump texture across the entire overlay, allowing the shooter to have a firm hold on their weapon the second they touch it. The overlay hardly adds an increase in the size of palm swell, so it feels almost as if nothing was added at all.
Performance â There are pros and cons when it comes to using a grip decal on your pistol. The advantages are that your grip upgrade isnât going to slide around or become loose, even after rounds and rounds of firing. You can basically use it as if you never added anything to your gun at all. Even sweat build-up wonât mess anything up here. However, the slight disadvantage is that if for any reason you decide you donât want to have it on your weapon anymore, youâre going to have a bit of a clean-up process. Youâll need to buy a special cleaner to remove any leftover adhesive, but you wonât have ruined your gunâs original grip.
What we say â Overall, the overlay decal from Tractiongrips is one of the best Taurus pt111 g2 upgrades for anyone who simply needs a better grip. If you find your hands slipping on the smoother areas of the weapon, then this is a good start for customizing your weapon.
- Low cost upgrade
- Won’t slip or slide around
- Highly raised texture improves accuracy
- Not easy to remove
This flashlight is one of the brightest subcompact pistol lights that are available in the market today. It comes with CREE XM-L2 LED and has a maximum output of 500 lumens. This flashlight also boasts many features. Additionally, it is very convenient and affordable.
You will have no hassle when using it because it is easy to install. It is also designed to fit any 22mm rail, that’s why this flashlight is adaptable. The Aimkon measures 2.5 x 1 x 1.25 inches and weighs about 2.8 ounces. A single CR2 Lithium battery powers this flashlight that you can only use within 45 minutes of being fully charged. So it’s always a good idea to keep an extra battery on hand in case the battery runs out.
- Easy to install
- Comes with two modes â steady and strobe
- Very powerful and effective
- Strobe will disorient assailant
- Battery life is limited
- Additional battery is suggested
- No ambidextrous controls
The lights of the sights are made out of a high-quality Swiss tritium material. This ensures excellent brightness in dark conditions. The steel slights themselves are built out of TFO technology. This is also known for being one of the most indestructible sight materials available. As an added bonus, the sights are further coded in a Fortress nitride protective coating, which basically makes them impervious to rust and corrosion.
Performance – These American-made sights feature tritium green front and rear sights, with a red circle surrounding the front green sight for better contrast against the rear sights.
As previously said, these sights are incredibly robust and engineered to guarantee brilliant vision 24/7, even in low light. These are resistant to cleaning agents, chemicals, and oils, so you may clean your gun without destroying the sights.
The problem with these sights is that they are incredibly pricey, costing almost as much as the PT111 G2 handgun itself (which is currently available for around $200). Also, some people say they’re tough to install.
The National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA) has thoroughly tested and evaluated these sights. Additionally, they are designed to fit in all standard holsters that the Taurus PT111 G2 or G2C pistols fit.
What We Say – One of the most important upgrades that you can make to any pistol is the sights. While the standard factory sights on the Taurus PT111 G2/G2C pistols work, you can definitely upgrade them to a much higher quality and more durable alternatives.
Overall, the Truglo TFX Pro Tritium & Fiber Optic Xtreme Handgun Sights are easily some of the best sights that you can upgrade to so long as you are willing to contend with the slight t moderately difficult installation process.
- Evaluated and recommended by the NTOA
- Impervious to chemicals, oils, and solvents
- Rust and Corrosion Impervious Thanks To Fortress Nitride Protective Coating
- Very Durable
- Will Fit Standard Holsters
- Tight Fit
- Very Expensive
- Can Be Difficult To Install
This Amberide Holster is made with a strong, waterproof 0.8â³ Kydex poured over aluminum molds to carry any of the guns in the G2 family securely. It is a great option for Taurus G2C owners looking for an inner waistband holster. It is very comfortable to wear and easy to conceal no matter how you dress.
When it comes to adjustability, you may customize the retention strength and cant according to your preferences. This fiber-reinforced belt clasp keeps this holster in place all day. So if you are looking for the perfect pair for your handgun. We recommend you try this one.
- Full Length Sweat Guard with Rear Sight Shield
- Very comfortable to use
- Perfectly made from sturdy 0.8â Kydex
- Retention screws can loosen
- Other handgun accessories, such as a laser sight, are not compatible
ArmaLaser Green Laser Sight
Materials â Lastly, we have the second option from ArmaLaser, which has a few different features from the previous choice. This laser is custom-made to fit over your Taurus PT111 G2âs trigger guard.
The 520nm green laser is crisp and bright, and it is best visible during daylight use. However, it is somewhat visible at night as well. But the activation is the same: simply grasp the trigger guard normally, and your touch will automatically turn the laser on. Again, the technology is enclosed within DuPont Zytel polymer. Get up to over two hours of continuous use, and point your laser at targets up to fifty feet away.
Performance â Although this option shares some similarities with the red laser above, the green option by ArmaLaser offers a different set of purposes. So, if you need a laser for tactical or outdoor range use, then this is your best bet.
We preferred the other laserâs installment to only the accessory rail, instead of over the trigger guard like this one, but thatâs not a deal-breaker. This laser wonât be as visible as a red one at night, but the light emitted is very bright and crisp. Youâll grasp your weapon a little differently, but the laser still only requires touch activation to turn on.
What we say â A great Taurus upgrade for someone who plans to use the laser during daylight. If we didn’t make it clear by now:
Daylight = Green Laser
Nighttime = Red Laser
- Very crisp green laser visible up to fifty feet
- Simple touch activation
- Adjustable beam and easy-access battery compartment
- Adds a little more bulk to your Taurus.
