First Shots: Taurus GX4 Handgun

posted on May 19, 2021
Taurus recently introduced the GX4, a micro-compact 9 mm that's built for everyday carry and features an impressive 11-round capacity. Single-action only and utilizing a polymer frame, the new handgun from Taurus has a 3.06-inch barrel and weighs in at just 18.5 ounces (unloaded). 

The GX4 features a drift adjustable rear sight with a fixed steel white dot front sight, with an overall length of right around 6 inches. The pistol comes with two backstrap options for a customizable grip fit, while a flat-faced and serrated trigger provides excellent comfort and control. Both the magazine and grip feature just the right amount of texture for sure handling, and the handgun utilizes a reversible magazine release. 

For takedown and field stripping, a single pin does the job, and the handgun ships with two 11-round magazines. You can also get a 10-round variant for states that limit capacity. MSRP on the GX4 is $392.42. For more information, check out TaurusUSA.com.
