    Taurus G3C~=Sig P365?

    Taurus is not typical Pistol-Forum fodder.

    https://www.taurususa.com/pistols/taurus-g3c

    I just handled a friendís G3C. A friend who doesnít have a lot of disposable income. A friend I advised to find a used Glock. I have to say, kinda impressed for the price. It is certainly at least as nice or nicer from a build perspective than any Ruger pistol I have handled. I was very much reminded of the Sig P365 both in size and trigger.

    Internals appear cloned from Glock but with a fully cocked striker. Very nice trigger as a result. I didnít get a chance to see a magazine.

    I donít have a P365 handy to compare but from what I remember they are pretty close on size.

    Anyone have any experience with them?

    I have a P365, no experience with the Taurus. Handgun hero comparison seems to show the G3c is considerably bigger than the Sig?

    Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught.

    Okay my bad. Frick that Sig is teeny. The G3C felt like a G43x I guess but shorter grip. Not nearly as wide as a G26.

    Looks like the G43x is tha actual target. I totally forgot how tiny the 365 is.

    I will try to change the title but if not can a mod help me?

    Donít worry, itís still pretty close!
    Some of us carry P365s with the XL grip module or at least with the 12 round extension.
    Height is pretty similar in that case.

    Hereís a height comparison of an XL grip.

    Really not bad of Taurus for 12 rounds.

    But dimensionally more like a short barrel G19 kind of form factor.

    Regarding the G3c, I have one, and it's...actually pretty decent. I did a 500 round test on it last year, and it went through all 500 rounds without barfing once. I get that pre-COVID 500 rounds isn't a fart in a bucket for us, but for this pistol's target user group, 500 is probably 5x what they'll fire through it.

    I shot the PX4 before it was cool.

    My father in law got one of these recently. He wanted me to run a few mags worth of ammo through it to see if I could find anything wrong.

    I ended up with 15 mags through it (he had oooollllldddd 9mm laying around); and I was very impressed to my extreme chagrin.

    Accurate, no stoppages, reloads well, sights worked well (for me at least). Drawing from concealment was smooth, predictable, and easy to get on target.

    I really don't want to like Taurus, but the pistol worked very well. Serves me right for being a gun snob.

    two cool features: resetting trigger on striker system to get "double strike"; and the manual thumb safety.

    Have a G2C. It's more like a G26 equivalent, with a bit longer grip.

    I know it's thread drift, but I had a Taurus 709 Slim a few years back. It was actually an accurate and boringly reliable gun, but I didn't like the plastic sights and couldn't find decent replacements. I ended up selling it for what I paid for it, which wasn't much over $200, and picking up a PC Shield for EDC. That has since been replaced by my 365 for pocket carry.

    Is the G3C made in their new GA plant ?
