The GX4 T.O.R.O. is Taurus’ new optics-ready configuration of the company’s budget-friendly carry pistol.
When Taurus released the GX4 earlier this year, it was poised to compete with many of the other micro 9mm CCW pistols that had grown to be so popular. Trends in the gun industry can change fast though, and by the time the GX4 had been released many of its competitors already had models capable of mounting optics. Proving that even the more budget-friendly options can keep up with market trends, Taurus has just announced the release of the new GX4 T.O.R.O., an optics-ready configuration of the GX4 that’s ready to mount one of several popular pistol red dots.
The only difference between the GX4 and the new GX4 T.O.R.O. is the addition of the T.O.R.O. (Taurus Optics Ready Option) optics mounting system. This system was featured on the G3C as well and was well received. The T.O.R.O. system allows for the mounting of several different kinds of pistol optics without the need for permanently modifying one’s firearm. Optics on the GX4 T.O.R.O. are easily installable at home without the help of a gunsmith. After removing the cover plate, your choice of optic can then be installed using the same screws that it came with. The T.O.R.O. mounting pattern can fit a Shield RMSc, Holosun HS507K/HS407K, Sightmark Mini Shot A-Spec M3, Hex Wasp GE5077-MIC-RET, Sig RomeoZero or a Riton 3 Tactix MPRD2. With an optional adaptor plate from Taurus, the GX4 T.O.R.O. can fit Trijicon red dots as well.
Like the regular GX4, the GX4 T.O.R.O. is available with 11 or 13-round magazines and should be compatible with existing GX4 holsters that can accommodate a red dot. It has an MSRP of $468.18 and looks to be a solid new CCW option for those who want an optics-ready carry pistol.
