U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Taurus, the manufacturer of premium handguns for defense, hunting, and sport shooting, is pleased to announce the latest model in the growing G-series line of personal defense handguns—a sleek EDC 9mm designed to deliver the accuracy and confidence of a full-size pistol in a package that is ideally suited for comfortable concealed carry.

Taurus G3XL 9mm

The new Taurus G3XL carries over the G3’s full-size slide and barrel assembly. This all-steel slide features a durable Tenifer black matte finish to resist the wear and corrosion of everyday carry and houses a precision-machined stainless-steel barrel. The four-inch barrel, working with the slide’s long sight radius, provides the accuracy serious shooters demand in a defensive handgun and maximizes bullet velocity for increased terminal performance.

Moving to the frame, the G3XL distinguishes itself with a compact grip that easily conceals when holstered inside the waistband or while carrying OWB under casual clothing. To ensure smooth draw and re-holstering, Taurus engineers streamlined the G3XL polymer receiver by reducing the length of the accessory rail and eliminating the manual safety lever.

The G3XL comes with two 12-round magazines to further the pistol’s discrete carry size and profile. If higher cartridge capacity is desired, the G3XL will accept available 15- and 17-round magazines.

In keeping with the Taurus G-series reputation for class-leading performance-to-cost ratio, the new G3XL features an MSRP of only $342.98—the ultimate balance of power, performance, and price.

I own a PT40 and PT45. I have had no problems with the 40 but the 45 has had nothing but problems and been to the factory three times for mags dropping out while firing. It’s not me either, three other people had the same problem at the range with this pistol. I found out it is not the pistol but the shitty magazines and their are two manufactures. One thing with the 45 is that the cam or whatever it is called that pushes the bullets up needs to be oiled because they stick and the front of the… Read more »

There are 3 subcompact little Taurus G2 series handguns in my immediate family, two (PT-111 Millennium) G2’s and a G2C. No problems with any of them to speak of, EXCEPT when trying to use the 9mm Strikeman laser pointer cartridge thingy for dry fire practicing at home, with their nifty app for your smartphone or tablet to record and keep track of where your “hits” are on the target. There appears to be something different about the Taurus G2 / G2C chamber design, where, the same Strikeman bullet / cartridge shaped laser pointer (the “primer” is a momentary contact switch,… Read more »
