On Friday, Taurus launched the G3; a pistol designed with attributes of the G2c, geared to deliver full-frame performance.

Taurus G3
With a full-size polymer frame, the G3 is a striker-fired pistol featuring a crisp 6-pound pull weight trigger, a loaded chamber indicator, an integrated Picatinny MIL-STD-1913 accessory rail, and offers several magazine capacities.

The Concept

"The new Taurus G3 is the logical, next-generation progression of our highly popular G2c compact 9mm," said Taurus’s Director of Engineering Olivier Coulombier. "Our engineering and design teams were tasked with delivering on all the desirable and proven features that have made the G2c one of the leading striker-fired pistols for concealed carry practitioners to craft an all-new full-sized handgun with its own personality and performance benchmarks. This fresh iteration of the G-series handgun does just that—all while raising consumer expectations with regards to performance and price point in the polymer-frame defensive pistol segment."

The Break Down

We brought in Kyle Braschler from The Armorer's Fix to take the new G3 through the paces at the CrossBreed gun range.
