It’s back: the Taurus 917C is making its triumphant return to the US consumer market!

Previously available, the Taurus 917C was extremely popular with customers thanks to its compact size, easy shooting characteristics and full length accessory rail. Unlike other compact double-action/single-action semi-automatic pistols, the Taurus 917C is capable of mounting full-size weapon mounted lights and other accessories. Additionally, the 917C is compatible with all Taurus 92-style magazines.

"I actually had one of the original 917C pistols all those years ago, and I regret selling it,” said Caleb Giddings, General Manager of Marketing for Taurus USA. "I’m a huge fan of traditional double-action semi-autos like the Taurus 92, so bringing back the 917C makes a ton of sense to me. I can’t wait to put some serious rounds downrange out of this."

The new Taurus 917C is shipping now, and MSRP is set at $599.99. TaurusUSA.com
