In the past year, Taurus USA kept pace with market demands by adapting milled slide cuts for today's popular red-dot optics, as well as offering an affordable, compact, capacity-rich concealed-carry option in its GX4 pistol. Now, Taurus is blending these two hot products in its all-new GX4 T.O.R.O., which provides a slide cut compatible with many of today's micro red-dot sights.
Standing for Taurus Optics Ready Option, the T.O.R.O. mounting system ships with a flush-fit cover plate that preserves the lines of the slide when an optic is not in use. Removing the cover plate reveals a Shield RMSc-compatible mounting surface, a footprint that matches many popular optics on the market.
Taurus' GX4 differs from the company's other carry-sized guns, thanks to its micro-compact format that stuffs an 11-round magazine into a pocket-size pistol frame. The gun's also outfitted with a number of improvements, like interchangeable backstraps for a custom fit and Glock-pattern dovetails for maximum aftermarket sight compatibility. Suggested retail pricing on this latest addition to the GX4 lineup is $468.18, while the suggested MSRP of the open-sighted model is only $392.42.
