Taurus brought an end to the PT700 series at NRA 2018 with the introduction of the PT111 G2s and G2c single stack pistols. At the same time, the Raging Hunter announced at SHOT Show earlier this year made it’s first appearance to the general public.

PT111 G2s and G2c

The PT111 G2s and G2c (slim and compact, respectively) semi-auto pistols are still striker-fired, single stack 9mm but no longer have the TSS security system or lifetime warranty. Both pistols come with two 12-round magazines and a 3.2″ barrel.

PT111 G2c and G2s pistols area available and shipping now via dealers with an MSRP of $319. However, the pistols are not listed on Taurus’ website as of the date of this publication as the website is undergoing a revamp, according to a source at Taurus.

The Taurus PT111 G2c comes with two 12-round magazines and a 3.2 barrel.

Raging Hunter

Taurus also brought the Raging Hunter to NRA this year. Available in 44 Magnum, the revolver is available in either matte or two tone and comes complete with carbon steel sights – fixed in the front, adjustable in the rear.

The aluminum sheath covering the ported barrel make the visually impressive revolver considerably lighter in weight than one would expect, coming in at 55 ounces (unloaded). The mil-spec picatinny rail which runs along the top of the sheath allows for easy optics mounting. The fixed front and adjustable rear sight and 8.357″ barrel are all part of what makes this revolver a fun alternative for a variety of hunting scenarios.

The Raging Hunter is available now with an MSRP of $919.

    I swear they go thru more models than Di Caprio. Nothing ever stays in production. The discontiuned list is endless.

    Good article but the G2C isn't a single stack. It is a double stack 12 round mag. I have a Taurus G2C and never had a problem with it and is very reliable and accurate. I consider it a much better pistol over the G2. I just don't understand why they didn't just designate it a Gen 3 in stead of G2C.
