NRA Gun of the Week: Taurus USA G3c T.O.R.O.

Taurus USA has adapted its G-series pistol for the growing market trend of micro red-dot, optic-ready handguns with the G3c Taurus Optic Ready Option or T.O.R.O. This latest striker-fired semi-automatic G3 from Taurus USA is compact and designed for every-day carry, with or without optics on board.

The G3c T.O.R.O. comes with four different mounting plates and screw sets to make the gun compatible with the popular small optics, including the Trijicon RMR, Vortex Venom and Burris FastFire. With an optic attached, the gun’s native height and length, combined with its slender width make the G3c T.O.R.O. an attractive option that lands at an attractive price point.

Taurus USA utilizes the successful frame geometry of the G3 series in this latest G3c pistol to help mitigate recoil, and provides users with a gun that points naturally to allow for smooth transitions into follow-up shots and promote instinctive control of the gun.

With the shrunken frame requires similarly downsized magazines, and this latest compact is fed from 10 or 12 round magazines. The pistol’s single-action design does offer operators with a re-strike function. A 3.2” barrel is provided, as well, Taurus includes drift-adjustable sights, three magazines, a manual safety and accessory rail up front.
