Additional features include two interchangeable backstraps, a Taurus Optical Ready Option (T.O.R.O.) slide (when choosing the optic-ready configuration) and flat face target trigger. The sights are a blackout steel serrated rear sight paired with a fixed white dot front sight for fast target acquisition when not running a red dot. Taurus has also continued their practice of increased quality control. Their new protocols have been described as doubling the standard for durability testing.
The GX4 XL is an exciting iteration of the GX4, with increased control, sight radius and muzzle velocity all coming from the larger size. Concealability and comfort when carrying were not forgotten during the design process however, as the overall dimensions and design still accommodate comfortable concealed carry. With a suggested retail price of $429 for the base model, the XL is a stack and a half 9mm that should be kept on the radar.
