Changes in Taurus Pistol Lines - Yay or Nay?
« on: August 01, 2018, 10:46:57 AM »
It looks like the Taurus product development team is keeping pretty busy.

First they updated the popular PT-111 G2 to the no-lock G2C. They're also moving their j-frame sized model 85 line of 5 shot revolvers to the 856 6 shot models and ending production on the PT700 series single stack pistols.

One of their new semi-autos, the hammer-fired TH9, comes in full (17+1) and compact (13+1) size models with Novak sights, interchangeable back straps, finger grooves, and a 2- or 1-slot rail depending on size. It feels similar to a Walther with the shape of the grip and finger grooves.






They also came out with a single stack G2S model, which looks pretty much exactly like the PT-111/G2C except for being thinner.  This is apparently the replacement for the PT709 and looks like it is trying to compete with the S&W Shield.





Anyone shot one of the new pistols? Think Taurus is on the right track or are they wandering off into the weeds?  They seem to be pretty well built pistols and very popular at the prices they sell for.

I've handled both. The TH9 is pretty nice but not my cup of tea for carry. The single stack is pretty compact. They seem to be trying to go after S&W Shield's market at a lower cost but it is is nowhere near as comfortable to hold as the shield and I doubt if it shoots as well either. I had a PT-111 and it was a pretty decent budget pistol and the G2S probably is as well.

I think they changed all the small revovlers too.  I think the whole 85 line is gone and they only do six round guns now called 856 model.
