Taurus carbine CT9 G2 is a complete analogues of a police submachine gun, modified to fit the needs of civilian weapons. In contrast to the “older brother” Taurus CT9 G2 is only for single shooting.
Taurus CT9 G2 – second modification civil submachine gun from the famous Brazilian company TAURUS. For a long time the company produced only pistols and revolvers. However, took the order from the Federal police of Brazil to develop a submachine gun for law enforcement.

Review Taurus CT9 G2 carbine
Taurus carbine CT9 G2 for obvious reasons, quite different from his combat modifications – in particular, the possible modes of fire. Here autofire is excluded, it is allowed to fire only single shots.
The second difference – a full butt. The police version is equipped with a telescopic folding buttstock, civil – fully open.
CT9 G2 model developed under caliber 9*19 and 9*21. The latter is an alternative to the caliber 9*19, since in many countries it is forbidden to use weapons for the civil police and army bullets. In addition, if 9*19 clearly classified as a pistol cartridge, 9*21 may apply to the snap.
This caliber has good stopping ability and lack of punching that allows you to use it as ammunition for self-defense.
Advantages and disadvantages
Gun-machine gun – police prototype was designed for combat operations in urban environments, that is, in principle, as a weapon for long-range shooting was not considered. An average distance of 50 m bullets stacked in a circle 10-15 cm
- One of the biggest advantages of the gun – ease. The carabiner is made of polymeric material stock and forend, aluminum receiver and slide group, certain portions of the same slide group, strengthened with steel inserts. Shock-Kursovoy mechanism is made entirely of steel. Overall, the model is quite light for its size and caliber.
- Very simple and easy disassembly of the rifle was mentioned repeatedly by users. But really, re-entry may cause some difficulties: lubricant manufacturer does not regret.
- The hilt of the pistol that much more comfortable when firing, is placed at an angle of 30 degrees, has projections to hold.
- Move the trigger free, the pressing force is 2.5 kg. Reverse short, which allows to reduce the time between shots.
- Shoot is convenient and from the right and from the left shoulder. The cocking handle is located on the shank, it can be moved from the right side to the left. While shooting it remains motionless, which protects the rifle against ingress of dirt and to keep weapons of different grip in this case it is more convenient.
- On the moving and friction parts are gratitudewe grooves, so that the carbine can be used in the most severe weather conditions.
The disadvantages of the product include the following.
- Established sights are usually small in size that causes the shooter unwittingly to strain your eyes. But they are pretty easy to disassemble to install another sight – collimator, for example.
- Shooting is performed with a closed bolt, which degrades the heat sink. Upon termination of the firing cartridge is in the chamber. Theoretically, this always poses a threat of spontaneous combustion of gunpowder if the shots were fired actively.
View of the Taurus CT9 G2 carbine
Taurus carbine CT9 G2 is officially certified as a hunting. Because of this, there problems with the acquisition of ammunition – 9*19 Luger, for example, because the cartridge is certified as a sports.
In fact, the weapons more often used for sports and recreational shooting, and for self-defence purposes. The result of the test from a standing position with different ammo at 50 m, the diameter of the circle is equal to 195 mm. the Maximum distance is 150 m. With increasing distance changes the trajectory of the bullet, that is, before the shot need to be amended when aiming, when shooting a self-loading carbine irrational.
Because of the existence of a ban on the use of certain calibers on light there were 2 versions of the police carbine:
- under caliber 9*19 – near the muzzle has a smooth barrel, barrel length 407 mm;
- under calibre 9*21 – thread M14*1, muzzle to install a compensator, silencer or flash suppressor. The length of the barrel like the police version – 200 mm.
Cartridge 9*21 has the same length as the cartridge is 9*19, but the sleeve it is longer by 2 mm, i.e. 2 mm bullet sits deeper in the pocket. The ballistic characteristics of the ammunition are the same. However, the muzzle energy is 9*19 above – 569 J. J. vs 504. Higher energy due to barrel length, not the performance of the cartridge.
Indicators of both modifications of the Taurus CT9 G2 are very close. In fact, if the choice is to rely solely on the availability of ammunition.
