    Here’s what Taurus have to say about the G3XL:

    February 2022 (Bainbridge, GA) – Taurus ® , manufacturer of premium handguns for
    defense, hunting, and sport shooting, is pleased to announce the latest model in the
    growing G-series line of personal defense handguns—a sleek EDC 9mm designed to
    deliver the accuracy and confidence of a full-size pistol in a package that is ideally suited
    for comfortable concealed carry.

    The new Taurus G3XL carries over the G3’s full-size slide and barrel assembly. This all-
    steel slide features a durable Tenifer black matte finish to resist the wear and corrosion
    of everyday carry and houses a precision-machined stainless-steel barrel. The four-inch
    barrel, working with the slide’s long sight radius, provides the accuracy serious shooters
    demand in a defensive handgun and maximizes bullet velocity for increased terminal

    Moving to the frame, the G3XL distinguishes itself with a compact grip that easily
    conceals when holstered inside the waistband or while carrying OWB under casual
    clothing. To ensure smooth draw and re-holstering, Taurus engineers streamlined the
    G3XL polymer receiver by reducing the length of the accessory rail and eliminating the
    manual safety lever.

    The G3XL comes with 2 x 12-round magazine to further the pistol’s discrete carry size
    and profile. If higher cartridge capacity is desired, the G3XL will accept available 15- and
    17-round magazines.

    In keeping with the Taurus G-series reputation for class-leading performance-to-cost
    ratio, the new G3XL features an MSRP of only $342.98—the ultimate balance of power,
    performance, and price.
