Bainbridge, GA | Back by popular demand, the Taurus® 917C is the latest (re)addition to our lineup of exceptionally dependable EDC firearms.
Returning to the US market from a long hiatus, Taurus USA is bringing back the classic 917C. Now with upgraded features including 18+1 capacity, target grips built into the frame, and an accessory rail, the 917C is the perfect CCW option for discerning users who prefer a double-action/single-action semi-auto pistol.
The Taurus 917C was extremely popular with customers thanks to its compact size, easy shooting characteristics, and full-length accessory rail. Unlike other compact double-action/single-action semi-automatic pistols the Taurus 917C is capable of mounting full-size weapon-mounted lights and other accessories. Additionally, the 917C is compatible with all Taurus 92-style magazines.
“I actually had one of the original 917C pistols all those years ago, and I regret selling it,” said Caleb Giddings, General Manager of Marketing for Taurus USA. “I’m a huge fan of traditional double-action semi-autos like the Taurus 92, so bringing back the 917C makes a ton of sense to me. I can’t wait to put some serious rounds downrange out of this.”
Key features of this rugged, performance-driven pistol include:
•18+1 rounds of 9mm in a concealable grip
•Contoured finger grooves provide a comfortable shooting grip
•Traditional double-action/single-action (DA/SA) trigger makes the firearm safe and easy to shoot
•4.3” target crowned barrel combines concealability and accuracy
•Fixed iron sights will never break, bend, or lose zero
•Combination de-cocker and safety allows the firearm to be carried safely cocked & locked or hammer down
•Comes standard with two 18-round magazines
