Taurus CT40 Carbine Now Shipping

    Last month we announced that Taurus was shipping their new 9mm Taurus CT9 carbine. The company has just announced they are now shipping both the CT9 and the .40 S&W version the CT40. These guns have been a long time coming.

    From the press release …

    Taurus®, the global leader in revolver manufacturing, launches their new CT9/CT40 Carbine platform. The CT9 (9mm) and CT40 (.40 cal.) is a new close quarter carbine platform for Taurus, with a blowback-operated system that fires from the closed-bolt position.  The CT Carbine’s upper receiver is constructed of aluminum with an integral full-length Picatinny rail with sights attached.  The rugged rear flip up sight is elevation- and windage-adjustable and the square-post front sight has a protective hood. The convertible charging handle can be switched for right- or left-handed shooters.  The CT Carbine incorporates a versatile polymer handguard that can accommodate 3 additional Picatinny rails in the 3-6-and 9 O’clock positions for the addition of accessories.

    The lower receiver is comprised of polymer with steel reinforcing inserts.  The CT Carbine has a skeletonized fixed stock, pistol grip and a very distinctive magwell that doubles as a forward grip, providing additional control.  The ambidextrous fire/safe selector switch is located just above the grip for quick and easy operation.  The magazine release is located near the magwell housing, protecting the magazine from inadvertent releases.  Provided with the CT Carbine is a hard case, sling, cleaning brush and owners manual.
