    Taurus seems like they are really trying hard to erase their terrible reputation from the past and start producing quality guns. I am absolutely in love with the G3C and TX22. Both of them are just so much fun to shoot. I will say the rear sight on the TX22 is absolutely trash but I ordered some night sights to put on it so that’s no longer an issue for me personally. Mine wasn’t holding windage or elevation and a quick google search told me it’s a common problem. Other than that, flawless.
    An NRA B8 ten ring is 3.36". Most striker guns with quality ammo should be able to shoot a 100 at 25 yards on a B8 from the bench. I've had a few guns that don't, but those had some issues.

    Agreed. I just blacked mine out on the TX22 with some Birchwood Casey sight markers, but they're crap. I desperately hope that moving to the glock-compatible sights is the "new normal" for Taurus, in which case I'm going to be one of the first in line for the TX22 Gen 2, whatever that is and whenever it comes. (Daydream scenario: they add some weight by using a tungsten-infused polymer frame like Sig has done X5 Legion.)

    Did you color in the rear? I didn’t even notice.

    I had a G2C. It was OK, but the mags didn't drop reliably ... until they started to drop in the middle of shooting a string.

    Reliability aside, there's also the ubiquity of Glock parts and accessories.

    I'd save a few more shekels and get the Glock. Seldom have I heard someone regretting that decision.

    From what I understand with the G3 and G3C the mag catch is one of the upgrades from the G2 series along with a few others. Your not the only person I’ve heard say the mag catch gave out on the G2 series. I’ve never owned a G2 or G2C but from what I understand the issue was corrected before the G3 was released.

    So just this morning I discovered my first possible complaint about the G3C I own with the viridian laser. I was checking the laser as I do every morning before I leave my house and swapping out the magazine with federal 147gr hst for Hornady critical duty 135gr +p. I prefer to keep the critical duty in the gun when I’m out and about because I feel for what it was designed for it’s a slightly better option when being inside of my car or out and about. This is now the second time I’ve had to change the batteries out on it. Both times the battery has only lasted me about 2.5 weeks. I ordered a 4 pack of the viridian batteries so I’m not sure if it’s just the viridian brand batteries are cheap or the laser just drains them that fast but I’ll definitely be ordering another brand here shortly to see if that helps extend the life at all. On a positive note changing the battery out is simple and only requires the removal of two screws. The laser stays zeroed In because I don’t have to actually take it off of the gun. I believe the 4 pack of batteries ran me about $10-$12 off of Amazon.

    Obviously this is nothing to do with the actual gun and more so an issue with the laser or brand of batteries for the laser. If using a more reputable brand of batteries doesn’t solve the issue I’ll likely take off the viridian laser and put on a crimson green laser. Just something to consider maybe when purchasing. I suppose for me personally anyway it was still worth the extra $60 cost since the laser does hold 0 and functions fine when firing the gun. I believe viridian sells the red laser for $110 and the green one for slightly more if I remember correctly.

    I will definitely give this a go when I go back to the range and fill you in with my experience and some pictures. I’m confident shooting 100 at 25 yards benched will be no issue.
