The new G3 9mm semi-auto represents the next generation in the Taurus G-series polymer-frame handguns. The full-frame, four-inch barreled pistol boasts a 6-pound trigger with a short reset and is available in numerous configurations. Options on slide finish and magazine capacity (two 10-round mags, two 15-round mags, or one 15- and one 17-round) put G3 MSRPs at $345.23 or $360.70, depending on the model.
Highlights include generous stippling patches across the grip for maximum control and retention
in any shooting condition, as well as an ergonomic palm swell and side-frame Memory Pads for
quick, positive, and repeatable hand positioning. A manual safety and slide release lever are optimally positioned above the thumb for easy manipulation and the gun features an integral Picatinny rail. Although full-frame in size, the G3’s profile makes it well-suited for concealed carry.
