Taurus Releases New G-Series Compact Pistol

Taurus, manufacturer of premium handguns for defense, hunting, and sport shooting, is pleased to announce the latest model in the growing G-series line of personal defense handguns—a sleek EDC 9mm designed to deliver the accuracy and confidence of a full-size pistol in a package that is ideally suited for comfortable concealed carry.

The new Taurus G3XL carries over the G3’s full-size slide and barrel assembly. This all-steel slide features a durable Tenifer black matte finish to resist the wear and corrosion of everyday carry and houses a precision-machined stainless-steel barrel. The four-inch barrel, working with the slide’s long sight radius, provides the accuracy serious shooters demand in a defensive handgun and maximizes bullet velocity for increased terminal performance.

Moving to the frame, the G3XL distinguishes itself with a compact grip that easily conceals when holstered inside the waistband or while carrying OWB under casual clothing. To ensure smooth draw and re-holstering, Taurus engineers streamlined the G3XL polymer receiver by reducing the length of the accessory rail and eliminating the manual safety lever.

The G3XL comes with 2 x 12-round magazine to further the pistol’s discrete carry size and profile. If higher cartridge capacity is desired, the G3XL will accept available 15- and 17-round magazines.

In keeping with the Taurus G-series reputation for class-leading performance-to-cost ratio, the new G3XL features an MSRP of only $342.98—the ultimate balance of power, performance, and price.
