“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.” – Johnny B.
Straight up, the GX4 comes in as an ultra-compact, super concealable carry gun. Oh, and did I mention it’s affordable? Measuring 5.8-inches with the small backstrap (and 6.05-inches with the large), the striker-fired GX4 stands 4.4-inches tall. Weight-wise you’re looking at about 18.5-ounces. Width is really where this pistol shines, though. Measuring only 1.08-inches, it packs 11 rounds! Barrel sits at 3.06-inches in total length. The gun is built on a stainless steel frame and sports a polymer grip.

Taurus GX4 Variations & Comparables
“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!” – Sean Curtis
