If you’re a Taurus fan, or a fan of military and police issue pistols, then the new TS9 full-size pistol might be something you want to check out. The TS9 is the issue weapon for Brazilian special ops teams as well other military and police agencies.
It had only been available to international and law enforcement customers but, due to a police contract overrun, Taurus is making some available to the U.S. in limited amounts. Although they don’t say what department the overrun was from, the Philippine National Police was one major buyer who purchased around 10,000 TS9’s back in 2019.
The TS9 is a 9mm striker fired pistol with 17 round magazines, adjustable sights, a picatinny accessory rail, ambidextrous mag release and a choice of four back straps. MSRP is listed at $499.99 and it will be available through Taurus’s network of dealers. Check out the specs and press release below:
