Taurus USA once again pushes subcompact pistol boundaries with its new G2S semi-auto handgun series, which offers full-feature performance in a subcompact, minimal-print pistol.
Sharing much of the design and engineering advances with the equally new Taurus G2C compact pistol, the G2S offers 9mm Luger and .40 S&W chambering in a more diminutive package. Unlike some subcompacts on the market, the G2S doesn’t compromise comfort, effectiveness, or operational efficiency.
With an overall width of 1.10 inches and a 4.8-inch height, the G2S satisfies the concealed expectations of the subcompact handgun buyer while delivering a robust grip and operational ergonomics on par with larger-frame pistols. This is due largely to the intelligently designed polymer frame and “sticky” stipling patches strategically placed along the grip. The comfortably sized trigger guard and smooth edging allows small- and large-hand shooters to achieve and maintain a solid, well-aligned grip for optimal trigger control and slide actuation. In addition to its small print, the 20.25-ounce (loaded) weight makes the G2S an easy all-day carry in a holster or purse.
The 9mm Luger and the .40 S&W G2S models are available in two slide configurations: Matte black carbon steel or matte stainless steel. Each include precisely cut slide serrations for maximum grip when charging the pistol (a real asset in a subcompact handgun) and fully adjustable (windage and elevation) white dot rear sights that work in concert with a fixed white dot front sight.
The G2S utilizes a striker firing system and single-action trigger assembly with restrike capability. Trigger pull is a satisfying 5-9 pounds. A manual safety allows the operator to shift confidently between “safe” and “fire” conditions. For those looking for tactical light or laser capabilities, the G2S comes equipped with an integrated 1913 Picatinny rail.
Subcompact handguns often present a compromise between concealed portability and practical function. The new Taurus G2S removes such dilemmas from the equation for everyday carry.
