    an oldie but goodie: PT-22

    hey folks - hope everyone had a safe and good Easter weekend... just got back from the range from a 100-round session with my vintage PT-22... picked it up used and found it had a broken firing pin... so i bought a replacement and did fitment... seems to be running fine... no FTEs or malfunctions with standard velocity CCI LRN and my new favorite: Remington Subsonic (1050fps):

    Very nice looking PT22, Those Rem subsonics are surprising, very accurate.

    I need to try them in my PT22-PLY.
    The next handgun I buy will be the next to last handgun I ever buy!

    Your older PT-22 that has the "finger rest" on the front of the trigger guard was/is called the "alloy frame version" I have that same one as well, but with black synthetic grips. I think it was $169.00 USD about 4 years ago at Academy Sports on sale. One of the best guns I have owned... I have put many round thru it. Some people have issues with the alloy version and the newer poly version, but I do not not have not with mine either.

    I also read your blog post (Hey, GNU/Linux.. I've been using almost since inception, but I digress..) One thing to note.. and they "may" be differn't now. That part 26 for the front of the "alloy version" of the PT-22, Taurus actually sent me a spare when I chatted with them.. just to have on hand for free.. you may want to ask them the same. OH.. and one last thing, it said in my manual and also from the Taurus rep that I talked to a few years back, that you can shoot Standard Velocity and also High Velocity ammo, but not "hyper velocity".. so watch out with those CCI Velocitor ammo as those are hyper velocity from what I understand on FPS.
