Taurus® G3 Receives On Target Magazine Editor’s Choice Award

January 2020 (Bainbridge, GA) – Taurus®, manufacturer of premium handguns for defense, hunting, and sporting applications, is thrilled to announce that the company’s new G3 full-size polymer-frame pistol has received the 2019 Editor’s Choice Award from On Target magazine.

“On Target Editors’ Choice Awards are reserved for the best of the best new products—those which demonstrate outstanding technical achievement and/or represent an extraordinary value for the money. Among the current crop of affordable full-size carry pistols, the new full-featured, sub-$350 Taurus G3 polymer-framed 9mm has raised the bar above its competition, earning it a 2019 On Target Editors’ Choice Award.” Said On Target Editor, Ben Battles.

The G3 9mm was developed in response to consumer demand for a full-size version of the company’s top-selling compact G2c 9mm. This next generation in the Taurus G-series of handguns offers the same refined ergonomics and reliable performance as the G2c, but with altered dimensions for those who prefer a full-size polymer pistol for everyday carry.

Boasting a 4-inch barrel, aggressive stippling patches along the ideally contoured grip, and intelligent beveling along the slide to minimize clothing snags, the G3 is a full-size handgun that offers minimal printing and maximum comfort. A crisp, 6-lb. trigger, short reset, second-strike capability, manual safety, Picatinny accessory rail, steel guide rod, and drift-adjustable rear sights round out the select features. MSRP is $345.23 to $360.70. Available in matte stainless or matte black with 10-, 15-, and 17-round magazine options.
