Introduced by Taurus at the beginning of 2019, in 2019, the Taurus TX22 was designed as a full-size semi-automatic 22 pistol to meet many needs, including:
To a certain degree, the success of the following Taurus semi-automatic pistols played a role in the development and success of the TX22 handgun:
These models laid the foundation for a polymer framed .22 semi automatic pistol that could do well in today's market.
Built on a polymer frame, the TX22 is a single-action-only, striker-fired handgun available with or without a manual safety option. Weighing just under 18 ounces, the TX22 is light enough for new shooters and younger shooters to manage, yet heavy enough to feel like a full-size handgun for more experienced shooters.
With the TX22, Taurus introduced a new firing system called the Taurus Pittman Trigger System, which equates to a crisp 5 lb. trigger break and short trigger reset.
Since the TX22 has the operational controls that are typically found on centerfire pistols, it’s an ideal training platform for beginners and smaller framed shooters.
The TX22 has had excellent reviews and was named the Guns & Ammo's 2019 Handgun of the Year.
