Where Performance, Concealability, and Shooter Ergonomics Meet
October 2018 (Miami, FL) –Taurus USA sets the new standard for concealed carry handguns with the introduction of the new Taurus® G2C series semi-automatic pistols. These streamlined, performance-driven autoloaders strike the ideal balance between comfort and confidence in both self-defense and target shooting conditions.
Chambered in .40 S&W caliber, the new G2C pistol is built on a rugged polymer frame that includes aggressive stipling, ergonomically placed along the grip to ensure firearm retention and to maintain positive hand alignment for optimal accuracy. The compact profile (1.25″ wide x 6.25″ long x 5.0″ tall) combined with the 10-round (.40 S&W) capacity magazines’ contoured grip extension delivers a solid, comfortable hold for small- or large-hand shooters.
Operation of the G2C is straightforward, thanks to a striker-fire, double-action trigger system that includes restrike capability. A manual, external safety is located conveniently above the thumb for quick manipulation in stressful conditions. The reversible magazine release is also ergonomically positioned for rapid, one-hand mag drops during tactical mag changes. Integrated into the G2C frame is a Mil-STD 1913 Picatinny rail to accept an accessory light or a laser.
The G2C is available in either the 9mm Luger and the .40 S&W G2C and both models are offered with either a matte black carbon steel slide or with a matte stainless-steel slide. The slide contours blend with the frame to promote a smooth, snag-free draw and re-holster. Precision-cut slide serrations provide a no-slip grip when charging the pistol. Topping the slide is a fixed white dot front sight and a dual white dot rear sight with elevation and windage adjustment.
Developing a handgun with the ideal mix of solid, reliable performance, an ergonomic design suited for a wide range of shooters, and a compact, lightweight profile that wears comfortable and “prints light” for everyday carry is no simple matter. The new Taurus G2C series checks off all these “must-have” boxes in single pistol platform…and raises the benchmark in the CCW arena.
