Taurus has introduced the newest addition to its G-series line of semi-auto pistols, the G3c. It follows last year’s roll out of the full-size G3 9mm polymer-frame, striker-fired pistol. MSRP: $305.74.
The G3c’s frame features a contoured palm swell, highly textured grip panels, memory pads for repeatable finger/hand placement, and a sculpted, extended magazine base plate with bevel cuts.
The G3c’s 3rd-generation trigger system has a flat trigger face and a shorter trigger reset. The G3c’s upgraded slide design includes both front and rear serrations for manipulating the slide during charging, clearing, or press-checks. A visual chamber indicator replaces the previous mechanical indicator.
The G3c’s slide is treated with a Tenifer finish to minimize scuffing and maximize corrosion resistance. Front and rear sights on the G3c have also been upgraded to all-steel construction. The rear sight is drift-adjustable and includes serrations to reduce glare and promote faster sight acquisition. The G3c is also upgrade-compatible. The rear dovetail is cut with dimensions that accept common aftermarket sights.
The G3c comes from the factory in 10- or 12-round capacities with three magazines included. Available separately are 15- and 17-round factory magazines.
