If you’re in the market for a new .22 caliber pistol, then here’s one you might want to consider, the Taurus TX22. It’s just a tad bit bigger than other similar pistols, but it does have it’s advantages. One thing is certain, with a new “anti-gun” president that may be coming into office, you might want to make this your next .22 purchase, since it has a “high capacity magazine”, you know that certain politicians won’t like that and they’re going to try and “back-door” the constitution, the 2nd Amendment in particular.
Here’s a little bit of information on the Taurus TX22:
Designed and engineered from the ground up to maximize fit, function, and comfort for shooters of all statures and levels of experience, the TX22 is a full-size polymer handgun that is ready from the outset to deliver success for competitive shooters as well as those just learning the art of pistol shooting. Boasting all the familiar features of larger-caliber semi-auto handguns yet in a rimfire chamber and with a class-leading 16-round capacity, the TX22 sets new performance standards and shooter expectations across the .22LR category.
The “human factor” was integrated into every aspect of the TX22 development process, allowing ergonomics to set the design parameters. The result is a full-size polymer frame handgun that is both comfortable and functionally efficient for a broad range of shooter sizes and shooting styles.
The short, smooth pull of its precision-designed Taurus Pittman Trigger System (PTS) utilizes a trigger reset that short and spring-assisted, allowing the shooter to deliver quick follow-up shots while maintaining good sight alignment. The audible trigger reset lets the shooter know once the sear is re-engaged and the TX22 is ready to fire the next round.
The TX22 weighs 17.3 ounces, thanks in part to a 7075 aluminum slide that includes front and rear serrations and features a hard-coat black anodized finish. The comfortable grip and smooth operation combined with the .22LR chambering makes for a pistol that won’t wear you out during extended target sessions.
In sum, the new Taurus TX22 design satisfies the needs of shooters of all sizes and experience levels without compromising in any area. This pistol meets the expectations of competitive-level shooters while providing the ideal platform for smaller-framed and beginning shooters—doing so at a viable price point that fits every budget.
