- Red dot ready
- Great for concealed carry
- Bigger hands may struggle with small size
- Mag release feels shallow
The Toro is Taurus red dot ready version of the GX4. Not only does it run a red dot, but it has a mag extender giving a total capacity of 13+1. Its magazine release was a little shallow, but it’s billed as a carry gun, and carry guns typically include smaller controls. With practice we got used to it and the mags cleared freely when dropped. The magazine extension adds round and also makes the gun easier to handle. As far as shooting, it feels way less snappy than we anticipated. Overall, we liked it!
The Toro builds upon the Gx4 design, adding on red dot capabilities. This accurate little shooter brings a 13+1 capacity of 9mm. Perfect for concealment, this is a great option for budget-minded shooters.

Taurus GX4 TORO Variations & Comparables
Swinging for the fences at $392 MSRP, the 9mm Taurus is designed specifically for those that want to concealed carry but also don’t need a tricked-out Gucci Glock to do it. Ergonomically, it’s okay. It feels good in the hand, but its diminutive size is both a good and bad thing. As far as controls are concerned, everything is more or less where you expect it – all within reach and easy to manipulate. The magazine release might be a tad too shallow for my liking, but it’s billed as a carry gun, and carry guns typically carry smaller controls. Also, the grip is short…our bigger-handed reviewers had to adjust their grip not to blow their fingers off…So watch out for that.
The overall experience with the GX4 Toro was pleasant and we found ourselves admiring the little gun. During a test of around 200 rounds, it didn’t have any malfunctions. In some ways, the Toro version hits that Goldilocks spot of not too big, and not too small. The GX4 also occupies a wallet-friendly space for budget-minded consumers.
