First Look: Taurus GX4 Micro-Compact 9 mm in New Slide Colors

Taurus is known for making premium handguns for defense, hunting, and sport shooting. Now they are following up the successful launch of their popular Taurus GX4 micro-compact 9 mm pistol with the addition of two new slide color options.

The GX4 is the first high-capacity, full-feature micro-compact polymer frame handgun from Taurus, and is chambered for the 9 mm Luger. The pistol debuted with a durable black gas nitride finish. Now, the GX4 is available with either an elegant Tungsten Cerakote slide finish or a Troy Coyote Tan Cerakote finish. Both of these finishes offer an aggressive contrast to the black polymer frame, and both slide models come with two 11-round magazines.

The new Taurus GX4 series handguns are just a part of the Taurus everyday carry pistol lineup. The micro-compact design of the pistol combines the  cartridge capacity of a full-sized handgun with a lightweight and compact  defensive pistol that is easy to carry. The ergonomic design of the pistol allows it to fit a broad range of hand sizes and to promote optimal control for exceptional accuracy and quick follow-up shots. The GX4 is comfortable to carry even with summer clothing, and delivers a high level performance for personal defense and CCW practitioners.
