Previously only available to international military and law enforcement, Taurus releases the TS9 to the US market. Due to a law enforcement sales overrun, the pistol will be available in limited quantities. The TS9 boasts a rugged construction that passed the rigorous NATO testing protocols while remaining slim and concealed carry-friendly.
The Taurus TS9
Building on a polymer grip, the TS9 is available in three different colorways: matte black, grey & black, and OD green & black. The grip features three finger grooves and texturing on the sides and front strap, providing positive retention while firing. Likewise, the textured backstrap is interchangeable between the four included sizes so that you can dial in the perfect fit.
The undercut trigger guard provides ample room for the middle finger, allowing for a more natural purchase. In addition, the upswept beavertail-style grip promotes a high grip and prevents slide bite. Just forward the squared trigger guard is a three-slot Picatinny rail for attaching a light or laser.
The slide features forward and rear cocking serrations for easy slide manipulation and press checks. Constructed of alloy steel, the slide on all models is finished in matte black, providing a two-tone aesthetic on the grey and OD models. Sitting atop the slide are the drift adjustable front and rear sights, allowing shooters to fine-tune the aim.
Housed within the slide is the 4-inch alloy steel barrel with a matte black finish. The 6-groove barrel features a 1:16 RH twist and is chambered in 9mm. Offering a capacity of 17+1, the TS9 ships with two 17-round magazines. Correspondingly, the ambidextrous magazine release provides right- or left-handed operation.
The Taurus TS9 is available now with an MSRP of $500.99. For more info, please visit TaurusUSA.com.
