From Taurus . . .

Taurus, manufacturer of premium handguns for defense, hunting, and sport shooting, is pleased to introduce the next iteration of its heralded GX4 micro-compact pistol, the Taurus GX4™ T.O.R.O.

The new GX4 T.O.R.O. adopts the Taurus Optic Ready Option mounting system, which facilitates mounting of several popular micro-red dot sights. The T.O.R.O. system is designed around a factory optic-cut slide for those who desire the advantages of a low-print EDC handgun and the confident sight picture of a red dot. The GX4 T.O.R.O. also comes with a flush-mount slide cover plate for use with the non-optic option. The mounting pattern covers the following optic models:

  • Shield RMSc
  • Holosun HS507K and HS407K
  • Sightmark Mini Shot A-Spec M3
  • Hex Wasp GE5077-MIC-RET
  • Sig RomeoZero
  • Riton 3 Tactix MPRD2
  • Trijicon RMR or Red Dot with the optional adapter plate (available at

Installation of a compatible red dot optic onto the Taurus GX4 T.O.R.O. is fast, easy, and does not require the services of a gunsmith. Simply remove the included slide cover plate, install the desired optic, and secure with the screws supplied with your optic of choice.

The Taurus GX4 series pistols lead the micro-pistol class with their 11-, or 13-round capacity, durable finish, ergonomics, and exceptional accuracy. The Taurus GX4 offers minimal printing even when worn under light clothing yet delivers the firepower and performance serious personal defense practitioners demand in an EDC/CCW handgun.

  1. Taurus quality is hit or miss. With that said, this has potential.
    I hope this turns out to be one of their good ones.

  2. I fail to see the point.

    The point of a small gun is concealablity. So we add an optic to a concealable gun to make it no longer easy to conceal. Might as well get a full size pistol with better grip purchase.

    • What is the point of putting an optic on such a small pistol? How far do you intend on shooting anyway? I don’t have any sights on my G43 because in a close encounter defense use they aren’t going to get used.

      • If you can choose your battleground, then you can outfit your weapon to fit the situation. But you don’t. What if, like the church in Ft Worth, the nearest Good Guy to the shooter was 40’ away, and had to take him out with a headshot? No sights on a small pistol is not going to be good enough. Prepare and equip for all situations.

  3. Oooooo, a Taurus. If you carry one, you’re letting the world know that you’re an out of touch boomer who has given up on all of his hopes and dreams!

  4. After the Spectrums I probably wouldn’t buy anther Taurus. Especially with all of the other options out there. You can probably find a higher quality option in the same price ballpark if you look. Or just save up a little longer.

  5. I bought the regular GX4 and shot it. In my opinion it just as good as my hellcat or p365. I just picked up the optics ready version mounted a red dot on it and really like it. I wasn’t a fan of Taurus products but they have a winner with this one. A solid little pistol.
