The Taurus G3 T.O.R.O. is one of the best mounting systems I have ever seen. This pistol gives you an optics-ready option at an affordable price. Given the growing penchant for shooters to include micro red dots on their semi-autos—be it for personal defense, recreational shooting, or competition work—Taurus brings the G3 series pistols into the optic arena for 2021 with the release of the full-size G3 T.O.R.O. (Taurus Optic Ready Option).

The cover plate on the Taurus G3 T.O.R.O is steel, and many optics-ready pistols on the market these days are made with a polymer cover plate. This steel cover plate provides you with a lot of strength. The material does not make a big difference, but what I like about it is the rigidity of the steel.
One of the most significant advantages of an optics-ready pistol is that you can leave it as is, and if you decide to, you can put on an optic later. The Taurus G3 T.O.R.O has the low pro sites, making it snag-free, and has serrations on that back that are blacked out with a white dot in the front. The slide pulls back fairly easily.
The laser texturing on the grip of the Taurus G3 T.O.R.O. is a feature that I really like. It has an aggressive texture but is not uncomfortable.
The Taurus G3 T.O.R.O. functions flawlessly. The grip and angle are very natural. It is a very pointable gun. Shooting the Taurus G3 T.O.R.O. at the range reminded me how much I enjoy shooting the Taurus G3. The G3 T.O.R.O is lightweight, but something about the recoil impulse makes it a flat shooting gun.
