Taurus Debuts New TX22 Pistol

Taurus Debuts New TX22 Pistol
The all-new Taurus TX22 Pistol

Taurus adds to the .22LR market with the all-new Taurus TX22. The TX22 is a.22LR semi-auto that runs like a custom-tuned pistol but comes at a price point that puts a competition-level handgun squarely in the budget of the mainstream shooter.

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 functionally efficient for a broad range of shooter sizes and shooting styles.

The 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.

Key features of the TX22 include:
• Single-action only striker-fire system
• 16 round magazine capacity
• Crisp, 5-lb. trigger pull with short reset
• Optimized slide weight for minimal recoil and fast target reacquisition
• Proprietary grip texturing for positive hand placement
• Fully adjustable rear sight
• Suppressor-ready muzzle threading
• Reversible mag release
• Integrated accessory rail


The TX22 weighs 17.3 ounces, in part to a 7075 aluminum slide that includes front and rear serrations and features a hard-coat black anodized finish. The grip and smooth operation combined with the .22LR chambering makes for a pistol that won't wear you out during extended target sessions.

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.

Guns & Ammo TV: 6.5 Creedmoor vs. .375 H&H

The 6.5 Creedmoor and the .375 H&H are almost complete opposites, or are they? The 6.5 Creedmoor is a newer and popular cartridge that transcends long-range precision rifle shooting and hunting big game. The .375 H&H is more than a century old, but still a popular and versatile choice for hunting big and dangerous game. For this shoot, Pro Tom Beckstrand, former U.S. Army Special Operations officer and sniper team leader, faces off against Guns & Ammo TV cameraman Ben LaLonde in a challenge that highlights the differences between these two cartridges.

Pocket carry, as a method of concealed carry for a defensive firearm, can be a practical option when done right. This is especially true during the colder months when heavy outer garments can obstruct access to a traditional waistline holster. Former U.S. Navy SEAL Jeff Gonzales, president of Trident Concepts, joins G&A contributor Kimberly Heath-Chudwin to discuss guns, training and gear, including Blackhawk's TecGrip holster that can make pocket carry more successful.
