A look at the new Taurus TS9, a polymer-framed full-size 9mm pistol with interchangeable backstraps.
Yes, another full-size polymer-framed 9mm striker-fired pistol is here, this time from Taurus in the form of the TS9. The TS9 isn’t a new pistol, but it is new to the U.S. market. The pistol has previously only been available to purchase by military and law enforcement groups, both within Brazil and outside of it. Due to what Taurus is referring to as a sales overrun, the TS9 is now available on the American commercial market as well, albeit in limited quantities.
Frankly, in terms of modern features, the TS9 is a bit bland. Given its heritage as a law enforcement pistol, however, its bare-bones nature makes more sense. More importantly for that role, Taurus says that the pistol is rugged, reliable and has passed rigorous NATO tests.
As mentioned, the Taurus TS9 is a full-size polymer-framed striker-fired pistol in 9mm. It has a magazine capacity of 17 rounds, an accessory rail and an ambidextrous magazine release. Both the front and rear black iron sights are adjustable, and each pistol will ship with four interchangeable backstraps.
The Taurus TS9 will be offered with a choice of either a black, gray or OD green frame color, and each pistol will ship with two magazines. MSRP starts at $499.99.
