TAURUS G3 : THE NEW DO IT ALL 9MMCategoriesUncategorized



taurus g3

The new Taurus G3 pistol offers a number of desirable tactical features for a very reasonable price.  What other concealable 4″ 9mm semi-auto  offers an 18 round capacity, a single-action fire control unit with a second strike capability and a three-slot accessory rail for only  $345.23?  Those who want a basic 9mm pistol for personal and home defense will be hard-pressed to find a well-equipped 9mm at a lower price.  

The Taurus Millennium G3 is an attractive pistol that has many features of more expensive guns, even though its MSRP is quite reasonable.

A New Generation I reviewed a PT-111 Millennium G2 six years ago and found it was a reliable handgun with adequate accuracy for personal defense.  It was easy to use, had good quality control and it reliably fired a variety of defensive ammo.  The new G3 is similar in overall design to the sub-compact G2, except that it is a larger pistol.  Taurus describes the G3 as their “full-size” gun, however it is very similar in size to a Glock 19.   Depending upon where the buyer lives G3, comes with an extended 17-round magazine and a flush-fit 15-round magazine, two 15 rounders or two 10-rounders.  The lower capacity magazines are designed to comply with laws and regulations enforced in some jurisdictions. The grip is sized to fit a 15 round magazine.  This allows the owner to use a shorter magazine that is less likely to “print” through clothing, which is an important feature for buyers who carry concealed under light clothing at least part of the year.  

The G3 has long manual safety lever that is easy to disengage with a downward movement of the thumb and a thumb rest groove that helps the shooter establish a firm grasp on the grip.

The stippled panels on all sides of the G3’s grip provide a sure hold under a variety of weather conditions.

A workbench examination indicated that the overall quality of the G3 appears to be good.  Fit was acceptable with a bit of lateral play between the slide and frame.  Finish of the slide was an even matte black, and the polymer frame was well-configured with just a slight mold mark between the two halves.  All lines were straight and there were no sharp edges or tool marks anywhere on the gun inside or out.  The operation of the slide was smooth, the slide lock activated every time on an empty magazine, the manual safety was positive in its operation, the trigger safety operated properly and the magazine release smartly ejected the magazine, although I’d prefer a release that is not quite as tall as the one on the Taurus G3. In addition, trigger pull was long and became somewhat gritty as it stacked, and it had some overtravel. On the other hand, both the single action and second strike pulls measured an identical 5.5 lbs. which is quite acceptable for a defensive pistol.  Reset distance for the trigger was about .375″, making quick follow-up shots possible.  

Shooting Impressions After cleaning and lubing the gun, the Taurus G3 was used for the Army L portion of the Flagler Gun Club’s weekly informal Bullseye Match.  Super Vel 90 gr. JHPs and Winchester 115 gr. Service Grade FMJ ammo were used.  When a dead center aim was used, both of these loads shot low.  So further testing was conducted with ammunition loaded with 124 gr.,135 gr. and 138 gr. hollow point bullets.  Five loads were chosen to test velocity, muzzle energy and 15 yd. accuracy from an Isosceles Stance.  They were Black Hills 125 gr. JHP +P, Hornady American Gunner 124 gr. JHP, Federal 135 gr. Hydra-Shok Deep, Federal Syntech 138 gr. Syntech Defense HP and SigSauer 124 gr. V-Crown.  The most accurate load was the Federal Syntech 138 gr. HP.  Next most accurate was the Federal 135 HS Deep.  This gun definitely liked the heavier bullets.  Full velocity, energy and accuracy results are in the attached table. The second test involved timed tactical drills from a concealed holster at 10 yds.  Five timed double taps were fired to the chest of a silhouette target.  The average time for all runs was 4.94 sec. and the score was 75/100.  Not bad for a light gun with a factory trigger.  Finally, a full load of 18 shots was fired with five different factory hollow points and the gun ran perfectly.  

Because the G3 is a defense pistol accuracy was tested at 15 yds. using a tactical two-hand Isosceles  Stance.

Final Analysis The Taurus G3 proved to be effective for personal defense out to at least 15 yds.  It has quite a few features and it’s low MSRP makes it a good value.  The Taurus G3 was test fired with seven different 9mm. loads from six manufacturers.  All functioned perfectly in it.

Put simply, the SPRINGFIELD SAINT is Springfield Armory’s line of AR-style rifles and pistols. The guns were developed as a critical piece of home defense gear and as a way of honoring those that take responsibility for their safety. Buy firearms online.

Since its introduction, the wildly popular SPRINGFIELD SAINT lineup expanded to include a broad selection of specialized variants. Configured for a range of uses and chambered for several cartridges, this family of guns is divided into three main categories: the SPRINFIELD SAINT, the SPRINGFIELD SAINT Victor and the SPRINGFIELD SAINT Edge. Buy Springfield Saint Victor Rifles from Gun Spot.

Let’s take a look at each of these guns and help you decide what makes the most sense for your needs.


The SAINT is the foundation of the Springfield Armory AR line. It was the original SAINT rifle that launched the platform and remains its anchor, and has had upgrades and options added in the years since its launch.

These rifles offer a solid Modern Sporting Rifle (MSR) chambered in 5.56 NATO (if you want to find out if the SPRINGFIELD SAINT fires 5.56 NATO or .223, click here) with high-quality parts and some of the most sought-after upgrades. While Springfield updated the base SPRINGIELD SAINT rifle during the past several years, the company’s kept the price very affordable. Buy air guns online


Combining ruggedness and light weight, the SPRINGFIELD SAINT Victor is aimed at the professional market but still within the price range of the weekend warrior. These offer performance upgrades that can tighten your groups without crushing your wallet. Buy springfield armory rifles online

For more downrange energy, take a look at the SAINT Victor in .308 Win. This rifle offers all of the same features as the 5.56-chambered rifles in a package that is remarkably light: only 7 lbs., 11 oz. It ships with a 20-round Magpul PMAG magazine. Be it hunting or home defense, this gun provides serious knock down power. Buy sig sauer guns online


When you want the best, you want the Edge. Springfield Armory offers the SAINT Edge rifle line as a no-compromise series of Modern Sporting Rifles with premier components for the utmost in reliability and performance.

Available in 5.56 NATO only, these guns are built on 7075-T6 billet lowers. CNC machined, these lowers have a distinctive look with cuts designed to shave ounces from the gun without harming performance or reliability. The lowers use the Accu-Tite tension system to eliminate the loose feel, or slop, found in many AR-style rifles.

Another upgrade in the Springfield Saint Edge line is the use of an adjustable gas block. The gas block uses three different modes that allows you to tune the gun to the specific ammunition you are using. As delivered, the gun will run the vast majority of 5.56 NATO and .223 Rem ammunition with perfect reliability. However, if you are using specialized ammunition, a suppressor or anything that would affect the function of the gas system, you can make adjustments to keep the gun running perfectly.
