Taurus has announced the latest model in its growing G-series line of 9 mm personal-defense handguns, the G3XL.

This newest concealed-carry model maintains several features common to other G3 models, including a full-size slide and barrel assembly. An all-steel slide features a Tenifer black matte finish to resist the wear and corrosion of everyday carry and houses a precision-machined stainless-steel 4” barrel.

Where the G3XL distinguishes itself is its easily concealed frame, ideal for OWB carry or under casual clothing. For smooth draw and re-holstering, Taurus has streamlined the polymer receiver by reducing the length of the accessory rail and eliminating the manual safety lever.

The G3XL comes with 2 12-round magazines, but the G3XL also accepts available 15- and 17-round magazines. MSRP: $342.98
