Product Description

What's in the Box

  • Taurus G3c 9mm Compact Striker-Fired Pistol
  • (3) 12-Round Magazines
  • Cable Lock
  • Owner's Manual

New for 2020, Taurus expands its noted G-Series line of polymer-frame, striker-fired pistols with the next-generation G3c compact 9mm.

In planning the newest model in the G - series of compact handguns, Taurus engineers were guided by two key objectives: retain and refine the key attributes which have made the G2c so popular with shooters and everyday carry practitioners while integrating new features designed to enhance overall performa nce, durability, and customization potential. The new G3c delivers on all fronts.

The G3c upgrades begin with the slide. The standard rear serrations are now accompanied by serrations at the front of the slide to provide a more tactile surface area for more positive grip. This makes slide manipulation and press checks easier regardless of operating style or hand size. A visual chamber indicator replaces the mechanical indicator found on the G2c, reducing parts and streamlining the slide profile.

To provide longer wear resistance and better corrosion protection from environmental conditions, the G3c slide is treated with a proven Tenifer finish. The Tenifer finish delivers more robust surface integrity to minimize scuffing and maximize corrosion resistance.

Standard on the G3c are all-steel front and rear sights (instead of the polymer sights included on the G2c) that are designed to withstand the rigors of daily carry. The rear sight is serrated to reduce glare and quicken sight picture acquisition, while drift adjustability allows the shooter to fine-tune the point-of-impact.

All these features continue with the new G3c model but with an added performance upgrade. Scallops are now included with G3c magazine extension. These are designed to assist in tactical magazine changes should dust or grit prevent the magazine from dropping freely when depressing the mag release.

Speaking of the magazines, the G3c comes standard with three 12-round magazines. 15 & 17 round magazines will also be available for customers who desire even higher capacity.

Good afternoon. I just wanted to reach out and personally thank you all for the amazing customer service and fantastic shopping experience I have every time I go to Vance. I live in Zanesville.

(5 out of 5) Great ccw
by from Zanesville, Ohio on

Bought a weeks ago put 200 rounds through it today at the bullet ranch and not a single problem easy to control after 20 rounds I got trigger control down perfect and had a blast

(5 out of 5) Friendly service and a firearm worth twice the price
by from Columbus, OH on

The people at the Obetz location were a pleasure to work with, especially at the range where I did a T&E. The G3c is a great CCW, and easily compares to a Glock G19 at a much lower cost. Comfortable to shoot and a great first firearm for new shooters. The magazines were a bit sticky at first but loosened up with use. Very little recoil for a 3-inch barrel. I have always been a you get what you pay for guy, but this firearm really surprised me. I think that I would purchase it at twice the price.

(5 out of 5) Reliable
by from Trenton, Ohio on

I purchased the Taurus G3c in mid 2020 and I wasnt really sure what to expect, I still have this firearm in my collection. In my opinion its a reliable and all around excellent firearm. I dont know the exact round count thats been through it but I do know that I have never an issue with it. Its easy to disassemble and reassemble which makes the cleaning process a breeze. Bottom line is that I'm very happy that I purchased this firearm and customer service is outstanding.

(5 out of 5) Excellent Firearm
by from Cincinnati, OH on

The Taurus G3C is an unbelievable firearm for the price. I have done extensive comparisons between the G3C and G2C compared to the SIG P320 and S&W Shield 2.0. The Taurus fires true and flawlessly. Not a single jam using steel case, reloads, quality brass, or 115gr and 147gr HPs after firing about 500rds total. The Shield jammed about every 5th shot. The SIG only performed when using quality brass.

(5 out of 5) Great gun to own.
by from Canal Winchester, OH on

Smaller than my Smith & Wesson 9606. Great grip. Put 110 rounds through it the day after I bought it. Lots of bullseyes. Just had to learn my problems with firing. Will be my every day carry.

(5 out of 5) Really impressed. G3C new to compacts
by from Pickerington, Oh on

Two things. It’s tricky to put the slide back on the rack. It’s like it can get off alignment by a decimal. Buy a magazine loader. This gun should come with one. It was physically impossible to load the 12 round into all three magazines. Could only get 11 once and my thumb gave out. Auto loader made it real easy and cost like 8 bucks on Amazon. Took it to the range, pre-greased it. Other reviews suggested and put about 200 rounds of Remington Range. Not a single jam, pause, or hang up.

What I like. The texture. I had gun oil all over my hands and the only rag I had was a gun oil soaked rag and my jeans. The texture kept my grip lock solid. After two hundred rounds certain spots on my hand became sore but the texture is for the worst case. It’s not a pleasure shooting gun texture. It’s a your-hand-is-covered-in-clammy-sweat-blood-oil-and-dirt texture. There is a memory depression on both sides for index fingers. It was nice for a no look safety on off practice from hip to target. Also used the left depression for my left thumb.

Sights. They are simple but real quick to align on the target and hit in the center mass area. The weight of the gun is very evenly distributed and the recoil was less than my .380. The price.

This pistol is quality. Just oozes it. Even though this is my first compact…I know quality. Your not getting some rattly made in China blender for $250. Your getting a high quality compact self defense platform. I have never shot a striker fired gun so maybe all triggers have as much slack for safety. Or that’s common for compacts. I am not sure I prefer so much slack although I am guessing it’s to allow for the trigger safety mechanism to work maybe. But that, coupled with the size of the grip (too narrow), it caused me to be low-left on paper. With my Beretta 9 and .45 Gold Cup I don’t have this issue. Both guns fill my hand better and the trigger pull slack is minimal.

All in all very happy with this purchase. I am comfortable using as a Constitutional carry sidearm with zero confidence issues. Well done Taurus.
