New for 2021: Taurus G3c

posted on March 6, 2021
Taurus continues to dominate the market of affordable concealed-carry handguns with its G series of pistols, and the latest addition to the line, the G3c, gives you a compact, carry-ready pistol with all the features you need at a price you can afford.

The Taurus G3c incorporates many of the features found in the company's other G3 handguns, but the size and overall profile is tailored for comfortable daily carry. The Taurus G3c features a 3.2" barrel that sits inside a package that measures 6.3" in overall length and 5.1" in height. Feeding the G3c is a 12-round magazine with a pinky extension, so you can obtain a full firing grip on the gun without compromising on concealment.

One of the unique features found on the Taurus G3c is its restrike capability. The single-action trigger does not require the action to cycle in order to re-cock the striker. This provides multiple benefits. Not only does it allow you to pull the trigger again on a round that may not have gone off the first time around, the restrike capability also allows for dry-fire practice without having to constantly cycle the gun, which is required on other striker-fired platforms.

The Taurus G3C features pads of texturing around the bottom of the grip frame, which anchors the gun securely in your hand while shooting, but it's not aggressive enough to irritate those with more sensitive hands. The steel slide is treated with a durable Tenifer finish and includes deep, angled serrations at the front and rear that provide solid purchase when racking the slide.
