The Taurus G2C seems to be pretty popular, which makes sense since it’s a compact DA/SA gun with a polymer frame. And there’s definitely a market for that type of gun.
There’s also a very specific use for this gun: concealed carry. It’s a small, lightweight gun, with a heavy initial trigger press. Now, I’ve already got my concealed carry gun (and I’m sure you can guess what it is…).
But that means there are a handful of accessories that pair really well with this gun. Unfortunately, there’s not a ton of aftermarket support for the Taurus G2C, yet.
You can still get almost everything you need to stick a gun in your pants (using a holster), though.
SPOILER—if you just need quick tips so you can grab and go, get the C&G Holsters IWB Covert Kydex Holster. Unlike a Glock, the stock Taurus G2C hardware is pretty nice. So you can start with getting a gun bucket for your G2C.

The Best Taurus G2C Accessories: Everything You Need for Your Taurus Carry Gun
These accessories are presented in order of importance. The most important accessories are up first. The most optional accessories are near the end.
Allocate your budget accordingly.
1. C&G Holsters IWB Covert Kydex Holster - Overall Best Taurus G2C Accessory
The C&G Holsters IWB Covert Kydex Holster is a slightly generic kydex holster. However, it’s comfortable. It meets all the requirements for a safe concealed carry holster. And they have good lead times. So you usually get your holster pretty quickly.
This holster uses a very simple, effective design that’s plenty comfortable.
The holster itself is all kydex. The retention is super secure. And the gun clicks into the holster and pops out with a satisfying snap.
The retention is also adjustable via a single screw near the trigger guard. So you can set the holster to keep the gun in place as tightly as you need.
On the outside, this holster uses a single, wide belt clip. The belt clip configuration is nice because it’s incredibly fast and easy to put this holster on and take it off.
The wide overhook is also quite secure. It’s one of the most secure belt hook configurations.
The only downside with a wide belt hook like this one is that sometimes you can’t get the holster in exactly the right place around your belt loops. Sometimes you need to slide your holster just a half-inch one way or the other to get it in the right spot.
And the one-inch wide belt hook sometimes interferes with that. The cant is also not adjustable. So the clip system lacks a tad bit of adjustability and configurability.
However, that’s about the only real complaint about this holster. There’s no concealment claw. But that’s more of a preference than a necessity.
The construction is solid. It’s reasonably affordable. And it doesn’t take forever to get this holster. So it’s a good buy.
2. Taurus G2C 9mm 12 Round Magazine - Budget Taurus G2C Accessory
I can’t believe how many people I see at the gun range with an infrared laser, 99x scope, and a rainbow barrel on their handgun. Then they have the same 2 magazines that came with the gun.
Here’s why getting another Taurus G2C 9mm 12 Round Magazine or two is a good idea:
- It makes training more efficient. Filling magazines sucks. And it’s kind of a waste of range time, since you can fill magazines anywhere. But you can only shoot at the range. Spare magazines help you get more bang for your range time buck.
- It’s a good idea to have dedicated concealed carry magazines. Your training magazines are going to get dropped and worn from being filled, loaded, and reloaded all the time.
Eventually, any magazine will fail and need to be replaced. According to Murphy’s Law, your magazine will fail when you need it most.
So it’s a good idea to have a magazine or two that you ONLY use for concealed carry. Test your carry magazines to make sure they work. Then never use them for training. And never drop them.
This minimizes the chances that you’ll have a magazine failure during a defensive incident.
Unfortunately, you can’t 100% eliminate the possibility of any type of failure. But you can minimize it. And having dedicated concealed carry magazines minimizes the chances of a magazine failure at the worst possible time.
The main benefit of these magazines is that they’re factory Taurus G2C magazines.
They’re metal. And they have the pinky extension to give you a better grip and more control over your shots.
So you know it fits. And it helps improve your shooting performance.
Additionally, if you need 10-round magazines where to be compliant with your local laws, you can get the Taurus G2C 9mm 10 Round Magazine. It’s the same magazine. But it only holds 10 rounds.
The only downside with the Taurus G2C magazines is the witness holes. These magazines only have witness holes at 5 and 12 (or 10) rounds. So it’s tough to see exactly how many rounds you have in the magazine. But it’s a small issue that most shooters probably won’t notice.
Lastly, these Taurus magazines are really well priced for steel magazines. That’s why these are the best budget accessories. It doesn’t cost much to get the most reliable defensive tool possible with your Taurus G2C.
3. XS Sight Systems RAM Taurus G2 Night Sight - Value Taurus G2C Accessory
The XS Sight Systems RAM Taurus G2 Night Sights are a decent upgrade over the stock sights. The stock Taurus G2C sights are decent. But they’re ramped sights, which are dumb.
These sights have a vertical face that you can use for one-handed weapon manipulations. It’s not a super wide ledge. But it works well enough if you need to catch your rear sight on your belt or something.
This sight set also has a red front sight. It’s not quite as a bright as a ProGlo sight. But the front sight is easy to see in most lighting conditions. And it draws your attention to the front sight when you present your gun.
Additionally, these sights have tritium inserts. That way you can find your sights if you’re in complete darkness.
However, the rear sight is basically blacked out, otherwise. There’s no white rings around the tritium inserts or anything. These sights are essentially a high-contrast sight set when it’s not dark, which is one of the best configurations (if not THE best configuration) for fast sight acquisition.
These XS sights are steel. Which isn’t an upgrade over the stock sights because the stock sights are actually decent. But a good set of sights should be steel or some kind of metal.
My only complaint about these sights is that they’re a bit expensive. They’re more expensive than many other high-contrast steel sight sets.
But, if you want sights that have more shooting utility and are easier to find fast than the stock sights, these sights are the sights to get. Unfortunately, there aren’t many other options. So these are kind of the only sights to get, anyway.
4. Viridian Weapon Technologies E-Series Red Laser Sight - Red Laser for Taurus G2C
I’m not a huge fan of laser sights. But, if you’re into laser sights, the Viridian Weapon Technologies E-Series Red Laser Sight is a good one to get.
There are two main things about this laser sight:
First, it’s compact. This laser sight adds relatively little bulk to your gun. That’s nice because the G2C is small. It doesn’t take much to make it feel unbalanced. This laser sight keeps your G2C balanced.
And it doesn’t make your trigger guard thicker. So it doesn’t interfere with your grip at all.
Second, this laser sight has ambidextrous controls. That might seem irrelevant, especially if you’re right-handed.
But, being able to use your laser, regardless of which hand you’re shooting with, is important on a defensive gun, since weak-handed shooting is plausible in defensive situations.
Ambidextrous controls are also nice because you can use your laser with the thumb of your weak hand. That way you only have to do one thing with your trigger finger: press the trigger.
Lastly, this Viridian Weapon Technologies laser is super easy to install. And it secures to your gun pretty tightly. It could pop off in a serious struggle. But it should stay in place for standard drawing and presentation.
The only downside is that it’s a bit tricky to find a holster that fits laser sights for the Taurus G2C right now. There will be more, eventually. But that takes time.
On the bright side, though, this is one of the premier laser sights. In theory, it should be one of the first laser sights to get a holster that fits.
So, if you’re into laser sights, this is your best option, unless you need a green laser…
5. ArmaLaser Taurus PT111 / PT140 Gen 2 Laser Sights - Green Laser Sight for Taurus G2C
I find that green lasers and optical sights are easier for me to see than red sights (I’m colorblind). If you need a green laser for better visibility, the ArmaLaser Taurus PT111 / PT140 Gen 2 Laser Sight is a good option.
This laser comes in red, as well. But this is one of the few lasers that’s also available in green.
And it uses one of the most powerful lasers that’s allowed in civilian laser sights. The laser is super bright and easy to see, even in conditions that are already bright.
Additionally, the controls are set up so that you can activate this laser without shifting your grip on your gun at all. And it has controls on both sides. So weak-handed (or left-handed) shooting is no problem.
This laser is reasonably compact. It adds very little bulk to the front of your gun.
Also, it comes pre-zeroed. It’s not perfect. But it makes it much easier and faster to get your laser sighted and ready to shoot.
The downside is that this laser adds some meat to the trigger guard. It’s not much. But there’s some molding around the base of the trigger guard. You can feel it under your middle finger. You may or may not like that.
But the upsides of this ArmaLaser laser are definitely more than the downsides. And this is another rather popular laser. So it’s relatively easy to find a holster that will fit your gun with this laser attached.
All the Accessorizing You Need
The Taurus G2C is a pretty solid gun right out of the box. It’s one of the best Taurus guns to come out in years. You only need a few accessories to make it a legitimate concealed carry gun.
And the first accessory you need is the C&G Holsters IWB Covert Kydex Holster. It’s a solid holster that’s simple and effective. And it’s got relatively short lead times, compared to some other holster makers.
That’s a good place to start. Once you’ve got your kit, grab a few more accessories and make your Taurus G2C even better.
