The 'Standard' series Millennium pistols are striker fired and incorporate a double-action only (DAO) trigger. 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.

About the Cartridge

This cartridge was introduced along with the Luger semi-automatic pistol. The pistol and cartridge was first adopted by the German Navy in 1904 and then by the German Army in 1908. This cartridge has since been adopted by the military of practically every non-Communist power. It has become the most popular and widely-used handgun cartridge in the world. Performance wise, the 9 mm cartridge has somewhat more power than the .38 Special but falls well short of the .357 Magnum.

BANG for the buck pistol
By X-Raycer on 27 Jul 2020
I bought two of these five years ago for $185 each from my LGS. After 500 rounds each they have proven reliable.
