With its latest G3 Tactical introduced in mid-2022, Taurus now offers a fully kitted-out variant in its G3 handgun line that provides plenty of versatility for those looking to equip optics, suppressors or muzzle devices on their go-to full-size handgun.
The Taurus G3 Tactical is built on a full-size frame with a magazine capacity of 17 rounds in 9 mm Luger. Ten-round magazines are available in capacity-restricted states. Topping off the full-size frame is an alloy-steel slide containing a barrel measuring 4.5" long and topped off with a 1/2-28 TPI threaded muzzle. A thread protector is included with each gun. Overall, the G3 tactical measures 7.76" long, 5.38" high and 1.2" wide.
At the top end of the gun, consumers will find a milled slide accommodating the Taurus Optics Ready Option (T.O.R.O.) system. When paired with the interchangeable mounting plates, the T.O.R.O. system allows for the mounting of most popular micro red-dots, such as the Trijicon RMR, Leupold Deltapoint Pro and the Burris FastFire. The G3 Tactical is equipped with suppressor-height iron sights that allow owners to co-witness their open sights with their mounted red-dot.
Other features of the Taurus G3 Tactical include a Picatinny accessory rail on the frame, as well as a loaded-chamber indicator and a restrike mechanism. The gun is also equipped with a low-profile manual thumb safety. Each pistol is also equipped with the two-stage G Series trigger system, which provides a light take-up, clean break and short reset. The suggested retail price on the Taurus G3 Tactical is $582.98. For more information, visit taurususa.com.
