Taurus GX4 Family Wins Guns & Ammo “Handgun of the Year”

(Bainbridge, GA) – Taurus, manufacturer of premium handguns for defense, hunting, and sport shooting, is excited to announce the GX4 Family winning the coveted Guns & Ammo Handgun of the Year award for 2022.

Hailed for its exceptional handling characteristics in a micro-compact profile, the GX4 family’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.

The latest release to the GX4 family, the GX4XL, was released in August and brought features desired by performance shooters and concealed carry enthusiasts.

The GX4 and its bigger brother, the GX4XL are assembled right here in the United States in our Bainbridge, GA facility. Each gun is test fired before it leaves the factory on its way to you. It was our first design build from the ground up with optics in mind. The GX4 represents the future of what we’re doing at Taurus, and that’s why we’re so proud of winning Gun of the Year.

“Thanks to everyone out there who carries, shoots, and uses their GX4, and all our products for making this possible. And don’t think we’re stopping here. We’ve got some incredible new products coming in 2023 that are going to keep moving the company forward.” Said Bret Vorhees, President & CEO of Taurus Holdings, Inc.
