    From what I understand (which my be incorrect) there is little that can be done with the trigger but I don’t know how limited, I’m not a gunsmith.
    Does anyone know whether the trigger pull can be;

    1.Slightly lightened?
    2.Smoothed out?
    3.If either can be done does it take a gunsmith?

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    If you have Gen1/Gen2 DAO trigger, then you are stuck with heavier double action trigger. Polishing the contact surface will smooth out the trigger, but if you want lighter trigger pull, you'll need to take your PT145 to a qualified gunsmith.

    If you have Gen3 DA/SA trigger (No "Pro" next to "MILLENIUM" but on the other side of slide as "PT145 Pro") then your trigger will break in to fairly smooth and light (about 4.5 lb) SA trigger after about 500 rounds.

    Would you recommend that I dry fire it until it does smooth out and lighten?

    What I did with my 3rd gen, I took it down to the bare essentials, where u could get yo the trigger and it's parts, and polihed it all, even the plastic parts to smooth em out, and it's absolutely fantastic now, give it a shot, or If u fel uncomfortable id be happy to do it for you depending on how AR away you live and how comfortable you are with that

    If you have the DA/SA PT145, dry firing will help. Polishing of the trigger parts Giterboosted mentioned would be faster.

    BUT, keep in mind that DA/SA PT145 will normally only fire in SA trigger mode. You will never experience the heavier DA trigger pull unless the round does not fire on the first strike.

    So are you concerned about the SA or DA trigger pull?

    If DA, then you have nothing to worry about.

    If SA trigger is not light enough, dry fire or polish the trigger parts.

    The only cure for a Taurus is departure and distance. Get rid of it as fast as you can.

    What are your reasons for stating this?

    Nothing like a SPAM post that contributes nothing to the question of lightening and smoothing the trigger on the OP's pistol.

    W2fnt, Not a productive nor helpful post at all, the thread wasn't even about a complaint he had it was wondering about the trigger, I myself own numerous tauruses of different years and makes, and hadn't had an issue out of ANY, EVER

    As to the polishing curiosity, basically you just pop out the pins, I think there's only 3, similar to a glock, and lift the guts out, look for any and all contact surfaces that have to do with the trigger/firing and polish or clean up as nessesary, I know mine had a lot of factory gunk in there till I cleaned it out
