Taurus® Introduces the New GX4XL 9mm EDC Pistol

Taurus® Introduces the New GX4XL 9mm EDC Pistol

Taurus, manufacturer of premium handguns for defense, hunting, and sport shooting, is pleased to announce the release the second model iteration in the company’s popular GX4 series pistols. The new GX4XL combines all the performance features of the original GX4 micro-compact 9mm with a new slide and barrel configuration for enhanced accuracy and terminal performance.

The GX4XL is built on the same award-winning polymer receiver as the GX4. Hailed for its exceptional handling characteristics in a micro-compact profile, the GX4XL’s hybrid stainless steel and polymer receiver includes a modular grip with standard or high-swell backstrap options for a custom fit, industry-leading grip texturing for optimal firearm control, an ergonomic and reversible magazine release to promote no-fumble mag swaps, and a class-leading flat-face target trigger with a generous trigger guard to accommodate all hand sizes.

What separates the GX4XL from the GX4 is its extended barrel and slide assembly. The GX4XL barrel is .64 inches longer than that of the GX4. This extended length translates to an increase in muzzle velocity and harder hits downrange. With this increased barrel length comes a longer slide profile and subsequent extended sight radius. Already noted for its remarkable accuracy, the GX4XL further tightens the point-of-aim/point-of-impact ratio. In short, the deep-conceal GX4XL’s micro-compact design gives up nothing in the kind of terminal performance, accuracy, and handling serious EDC practitioners demand.

The carbon steel slide found on the GX4XL is treated with a gas nitride finish to enhance surface hardness and reduce wear—a key consideration for a handgun intended for reliable everyday carry. Equally protected from wear and corrosion is the DLC-coated stainless-steel barrel. Not only does the Diamond-Like Coating boost surface durability, the coating’s inherent lubricity also reduces friction for smooth, reliable operation in the most austere conditions.

As with the GX4, the GX4XL comes with a serrated blackout steel drift-adjustable rear sight and a fixed white dot front sight. The rear sight dovetail cut and front sight mounting hole are compatible with that of common aftermarket sight systems, making tritium night sights an upgrade option.

For those who favor a micro red dot for their EDC handgun, the GX4XL is also available with the T.O.R.O. (Taurus Optic Ready Option) slide. This optional slide features a direct-thread (no plate) mounting system that accommodates the most common micro red dots on the market today:

• Shield RMSc
• Holosun HS507K X2
• Sightmark Mini Shot A-Spec M3
• Trijicon RMR® cc Red Dot (with adapter plate P/N: 10028170)

The GX4XL comes with two magazines—one 11-round and one extended 13-round magazine in both standard and T.O.R.O. slide configurations, and two 10-round magazines in standard and T.O.R.O. configurations for capacity-restricted states. All feature magazine and grip cuts to aid in magazine stripping, if necessary.

In keeping with the Taurus G-series handguns’ industry-best performance-to-price ratio, the new GX4XL pistols are priced at a consumer-friendly $429 MSRP for standard slide models and $459 for the T.O.R.O. slide option.

    Taurus doing the damn thing. Good stuff. Keep it going



  2. patriotpaul on November 30, 2022 at 9:59 pm

    OH Man, When these hit the store shelves, I wanna be in line! I hope they do an FDE version too! I have never owned a Taurus and I am gonna buy this one!



  3. Austin Aramis on November 30, 2022 at 10:00 pm

    great pistol,but with the extended mag after the 2nd round jams



  4. Danielle Dimichele on November 30, 2022 at 10:04 pm

    How about telling us if xl means longer slide, longer grip, or both!



  5. Sergio Nieves on November 30, 2022 at 10:05 pm

    How much will cost in florida?



  6. Lazy LoneWolf on November 30, 2022 at 10:06 pm

    I might trade my g3 for this one



  7. Roland Venne on November 30, 2022 at 10:07 pm

    Not sure why people want a thumb safety. Have you no trigger discipline?



  8. MC7 on November 30, 2022 at 10:08 pm

    MERICA! 💪🙂👍



  9. emil martinez on November 30, 2022 at 10:09 pm

    If you need a manual safety maybe you should stay away from firearms



  10. Shawn⁴²⁰Freas on November 30, 2022 at 10:11 pm

    What an outstanding looking pistol. Sure wouldn’t mind trading in my GX3 for one of those!



  11. MC7 on November 30, 2022 at 10:15 pm

    I need to be rocking these t-shirts. Can’t find them on the site.



  12. D Griffin on November 30, 2022 at 10:16 pm

    Well that video told us very little about the specifications of this model. Music was nice, though.



  13. Chuck R on November 30, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    A Tx-22 in 9mm aka Tx-9 would be great, love that platform.



  14. Pete Saari on November 30, 2022 at 10:20 pm

    Is it California compliant?



  15. Joey Williams on November 30, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    Looks like the sig365xl



  16. David Duke on November 30, 2022 at 10:25 pm

    I would not give you two cents for a semi-automatic Taurus pistol. I have the revolvers and they are good. but all the Taurus Pistols that I’ve owned are POS.



  17. Michael micale on November 30, 2022 at 10:25 pm

    EDC? No.



  18. James Stammer on November 30, 2022 at 10:27 pm

    Does the new 13 round mag fit the original GX4? I like mine a lot, had to have the sights slightly adjusted as they were off to the left. Other than that, been a great handgun. Fun to shoot and not a single hickup.



  19. Jarrell Fernandez on November 30, 2022 at 10:28 pm

    Why’d y’all take the safety off



  20. FreeFENDII 88 on November 30, 2022 at 10:29 pm

    Coming out with everything except a 45 and 10mm smh.



  21. SirGill on November 30, 2022 at 10:29 pm

    Want to send me one so I can do a comparison between it and the 709 slim? 🙂



  22. Kenmanx on November 30, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    No safety, no deal! Sorry…
    I will never buy another gun without a manual safety!



  23. The Great from 724 on November 30, 2022 at 10:31 pm

    Man check this out… Guy had a pretty big failure on his. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=puTCiBHdirs&t=140s



  24. Catfish Cameron on November 30, 2022 at 10:31 pm

    Smh lol wish I would’ve waited a extra month before I got my standard gx4😪



  25. Victor Reid on November 30, 2022 at 10:31 pm

    I just got the Taurus GX4, might have to get this too💯💯



  26. jalen woods on November 30, 2022 at 10:31 pm

    Not bad



  27. James Bond on November 30, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    I guess it’s for people that want a larger version of the GX4. But as far as CCW kind of a moot point after the GX4. My GX4 filled that nitch perfectly, no need for a larger version. But for those who want or have the "need" more power to you. I just appreciate Taurus for keeping the ball rolling.



  28. J on November 30, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    Every single one of my pistols are from Taurus. I love them. My EDC is the G3C. Never had a problem with any of them.



  29. UnderstandablyRelatable on November 30, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    Not a 13 round gx4 mag in sight unless its in a promo video.



  30. Billy Fogle on November 30, 2022 at 10:36 pm

    Need night sights



  31. Scott Gaines on November 30, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    Great looking pistol. Will and to my Taurus collection.



  32. Romak 47 on November 30, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    People asking for a manual safety are not serious concealed carriers, come on people think it through



  33. Jeff Colwell on November 30, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    I have the g2c just love it and have the 856 also great pair



  34. ALEXX _Windy city chi on November 30, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    The Taurus pt92 is an amazing firearm , I also love the Taurus G2C in stainless steel /black frame I also own the G3 , which I felt was not as good as the G2C , the coating on the gun scratches way more and fades away at a faster rate even though I had only shot it less than 200 rounds , I think it’s time For a G2C remake ! , Name it the G4 Deluxe , add some night sights , 17 round silver stainless steel magazine , stainless steel guide rod , & different color variety Barrel / frame ! I hope you guys are working on the next G series not the Gx4 Just the original G2C / G3 series Would love to see a G4 ! Wouldent mind spending $399 on a new improved version of the G series love you Taurus you guys never failed ! Me



  35. Jordan Newland on November 30, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    That red dot probably costs more than the pistol it’s mounted on



  36. BrothaRobMusic on November 30, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    Hi, i have a serious question! Will we ever get a g3c in other calibers? 40S&W, 45acp, 357sig and 10mm



  37. Reginald Monroe on November 30, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    Nice looking pistol I have the G3 I love it I may have to crab this one as well



  38. RESENHA DO ATIRADOR on November 30, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Top D+!! 👏👏👏🇧🇷



  39. Toxic Squirrel on November 30, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Them two made that look terrible



  40. Joe Got Guns on November 30, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    Is this the same size as a g19



  41. SpankHuggins on November 30, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    I find it hard to like Taurus when all I hear is nightmare stories about bad customer service



  42. Michael G on November 30, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    What changes were made from the first G4?



  43. V.German11B on November 30, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    The SA Hellcat Pro and the SS P365 XL have serious competition with this lower price but well-made Taurus G4 XL.



  44. ALEXX _Windy city chi on November 30, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    PLEASE MAKE HIGH CAPACITY EXTENDED MAGAZINES LIKE GLOCK DOES WITH THEIR PISTOLS I PROMISE MORE PEOPLE WILL PURCHASE A TAURUS.



  45. Wavy Vaporizers on November 30, 2022 at 10:50 pm

  46. Work Hardened on November 30, 2022 at 10:50 pm

  47. Ice Man on November 30, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    Oh look another Sig 365 XL clone!



  48. Toby Litsey on November 30, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    Ooooh you guys…. Looks like I’m gonna get in trouble with the wife… just after I said I’d slow down with buying new toys 😂



  49. Dale Thiessenhusen on November 30, 2022 at 10:52 pm

  50. astronaut dolphin detective on November 30, 2022 at 10:57 pm
