New Sub-$250 Taurus G3 9mm Pistol Now Available in Gray, OD Green and Tan
By Chris Eger
Taurus has been busy expanding its new G3 series of full-sized handguns, now offering the 9mm pistol in an array of new colors.
Introduced late last year with options limited to a matte black carbon steel with a Tenifer finish or a stainless steel slide over a black polymer frame, the Taurus G3 built on the company’s successful G2c series of striker-fired pistols. Now, the budget firearms maker has grown the G3 to include frame offerings in Gray, an OD Green, and Tan.
Across the platform, weight is 24.83 ounces while overall length is 7.28-inches, a size that puts the new Taurus model in the same neighborhood as the Glock G19 and S&W M&P M2.0 Compact. The sights on the Taurus include a fixed front and drift-adjustable rear while a Picatinny accessory rail is standard.
