Why can't I find any of the 15 rd g3 mags anywhere. I don't even see them listed on the Taurus website. I had this problem before when I bought a 709 slim and couldn't find mags or accessories anywhere. Needless to say , I no longer have that gun. I hope I start seeing some aftermarket options out there soon. I'm surprised they're not already out there with the popularity of the g2c. I really like the g3 but it's definitely frustrating not being able to find mags, holsters and sights. Anyone else have this problem? Or can someone point me in the right direction.

I've seen the 17 rounders but I can't find the 15's. I guess worst case ,I'll order a few of those. I just don't really care for the grip sleeve. Thanks.

Opticplanets.com has 10 round magazines. I ordered one and its scheduled to be delivered Wednesday. I was also looking at Palmetto State Armory this morning and it looks like they are starting to carry them. They have 10 round magazines in stock and looks like the 15 round one are out of stock, but at least they are starting to show up.

Thanks. I've seen the 10 and 17 rd mags. I hope I start seeing the 15 rd soon. I thought it was odd that Taurus and Mec Gar don't have them listed.

"I chatted with Taurus earlier this week about it and no luck. They have no ETA at all."

Well, that sucks...

Completely normal for a new Taurus gun. I don't really mind the sleeve, wish it at least worked for the 15 round one in my G2.

Still can't find mags. The 17 rounder is the only one I see on the Taurus website. Doesn't give me any way of adding it to
a cart, doesn't say if it's in stock or not. Can't find them on the Mec Gar website. A few other gun mag sites are out of stock. Not the first time I've run into this problem with a Taurus handgun. Super frustrating.

The 18 round mecgar mag for a Sig P226 is almost an exact match for the 17 round stock G3 mag, it is just a tad bit longer, about 4.5mm.

Dont have an answer for the 15 round mag yet.

Since my last post I sent my 605 back again and asked about the 15. It seems like they anticipated folks wanting the 17's and not the 15's. No eta if they would ever get any, I still haven't seen a G3 locally besides the one I had sent to my FFL.

I finally found some of the 17's in stock at a place called Bucksnort Outfitters out of Arizona. I ordered one and I had it 3 days later. They said they would email me when they get some 15 rounders in.

I recently purchased the ProMag TAU-A6 15 round magazine for the G2C hoping it will fit the G3. Well it does however the base angle is different and it's really a 17 round magazine. It will fit 16 rounds as is or installed with a factory follower, it will hold 17. The pic with the sleeve is the G2C and without is the G3.

The Taurus base plates for G3 or G2 fit that mag? Ran into that issue with MecGar mags and the Smith & Wesson mags. The base plates aren't remotely close and I wasn't able to swap my red S&W training base plates to them since S&W has like 3/4 mag makers for essentially the same style of guns.

I finally found some 15 rounders that recently became available at GunProDeals.com. I am sure they will go quickly. 17 rounders are available there and at a few places online now as well.
