Taurus announced its latest self-defense styled .40 caliber pistol, the G2C, is now officially headed to consumers.

The G2C features a polymer design that incorporates aggressive stipling. The stipling, according to Taurus, offers more positive control over the pistol when firing. Boasting a compact frame, the G2C measures 1.25-inches wide by 6.25-inches long and 5-inches tall. The striker-fired pistol offers a manual, external safety in addition to a reversible magazine release for one handed manipulation. The G2C also delivers a Mil-Std 1913 Picatinny rail for lights and laser mounting.

Delivering a 10 round capacity, the G2C comes in the choice of either matte black carbon steel slide or matte stainless-steel slide. The slide itself offers a contoured style that blends to the frame while also providing a snag free design. The handgun is topped off with a fixed white dot front and a dual white dot rear sight with both elevation and windage adjustments.

“Developing a handgun with the ideal mix of solid, reliable performance, an ergonomic design suited for a wide range of shooters, and a compact, lightweight profile that wears comfortable and ‘prints light’ for everyday carry is no simple matter,” Taurus said in a news release. “The new Taurus G2C series checks off all these ‘must-have’ boxes in single pistol platform…and raises the benchmark in the CCW arena.”

The Taurus G2C is available in both 9mm and .40 S&W with a MSRP of $316 for the black on black model and $332 for the black on stainless.
