Taurus has always had the reputation of being one of the more budget-friendly companies out there whether you’re into revolvers, rimfire pistols, or micro-compact handguns. While Taurus excels in the affordability department, on the sophistication and feature side of things they’ve always come up a bit short – until today. Today Taurus is proud to announce their new GX4 Graphene which features a new DLC-Coated barrel for better corrosion resistance and longevity, as well as a brand new slide featuring their new Gray Graphene Finish.

    Do not buy Taurus products. They supported the disarmament of the civilian population and the ban on the import of weapons and ammunition, in order to achieve monopoly on the Brazilian market.
