First Look: Taurus G3 Tactical 9mm

Taurus has just announced the G3 Tactical 9mm, a new full-size, polymer-framed, striker-fired pistol that’s both suppressor and optics-ready.

Taurus’ G3 family of pistols has quite a few members at this point, even including optics-ready options. Until now, however, there were no models that included the full suite of tactical features like the new Taurus G3 Tactical.


Featuring a Patriot Brown Cerakoted slide and tan polymer frame, the Taurus G3 Tactical comes ready to accept a slew of tactical accessory options. Like other standard G3 pistols, the G3 Tactical includes an accessory rail for a light or laser, and like existing T.O.R.O (Taurus Optics Ready Option) models it is optics-ready as well. There are four styles of optics plates available for the G3 Tactical that can accept most popular pistol red dot patterns on the market.


The newest feature of the G3 Tactical is its ability to accept a suppressor right out of the box. The pistol’s 4.5-inch stainless steel, DLC-coated barrel is threaded 1/2×28, and each pistol comes standard with a set of tall, suppressor-height iron sights. These sights are not only useful for aiming with a large-diameter suppressor mounted but when using a red dot sight as well by providing co-witness capability.


Other features worth mentioning are its loaded-chamber indicator, omission of a manual safety and its 17-round magazine capacity (10-round mags available for ban states). Each G3 Tactical includes two magazines, a threaded muzzle protector and a matching soft case. MSRP is $582.98.
