The world’s first and only curved firearm engineered to fit the unique contours of your body, Taurus Curveâ„¢ is one ultra-comfortable, ultra-reliable personal defense handgun.
Your body has curves, so why aren’t pistols shaped to match? That’s precisely the question our engineering team challenged themselves to answer-and the results are unlike anything youâ€™ve seen before. Introducing theÂ Taurus Curveâ„¢, theÂ world’s first and only curved firearm. Engineered to fit the unique contoursÂ of your body with no visible printing, theÂ Curve is easilyÂ one of the most groundbreaking firearms ever conceived.

With itsÂ patented, snag-free design, the Curve boasts the industry’s first-ever light and laser built right into the frame. Exceptionally accurate and extremely lightweight at just 10.2 ounces, the CurveÂ is oneÂ ultra-comfortable, ultra-reliable personal defense handgun.
