    TX22 vs G44

    Has anyone had hand's on experience with both these .22's? I have the TXX22 X 2, and found out the G44 won't hit my area for awhile. I can order on line of course, but that's not hands on. I would like some opinions please.

    Biggest reason I wouldn't purchase a Glock G44 is the grip angle.

    All my pistols from .22 to .45 have the same angle - and the Glock does not.

    If I owned Glock CF pistols I would certainly buy a G44.

    Overall there may be minor issues with the Glock, as there are with the TX, but as a trainer and plinker that isn't important like it is for a defense pistol.

    G44 JUNK.

    Per the video: Won't cycle bulk ammo, has a 20% failure rate, won't shoot to point of aim, only 10 rounds, no threaded barrel included, mushy trigger, way overpriced. He even says he's not keeping the G44 and recommends the Taurus TX22 at the end. All from a guy who has shot thousands upon thousands of .22LR rounds through his pistols. Should be good enough for anyone.

    GLOCK FAIL.

    I've got them both, both have their quirks. My TX was going through a period of FTE with just about everything I shot. I fixed it by tuning the extractor and extractor chamber shelf, after that it's been 100% with any ammo I shoot unless it's a light load. With a light load, and you can tell, the slide won't come back to pick up another round. Overall my TX, to me shoots better than the G44. I can hit my 6x6 steel plate at 60 yards with some regularity with the TX. And it will feed pretty much anything I put through it now.
    My G44 is picky on ammo and likes the heavier bullet rounds, unless it's Stingers. It will not shoot Federal bulk 36 grain, doesn't want to feed them properly. Using M22 or anything 40 grain it's pretty flawless. Shooting my 6x6 steels at 60 yards isn't near as regular as the TX. Probably has a lot to do with sight radius. When I first got it, it was finicky on all ammo, but after a couple hundred rounds it's settled into what it is now. As long as I shoot the ammo it likes, it's okay. Would it be my woods gun? No, probably not, but it makes a nice trainer to transition my wife to the G19.

    You mean like the SR22, with its backward safety lever, 10-round-only mags and high price tag?

    I bought my wife an SR22 when she first started shooting and then regretted it. Not that it doesn't shoot well, but the backwards safety makes it hard to switch to other guns for her.
    I bought her a TX for her birthday back in January after she said she liked mine. She shoots it well but then there's the whole backwards safety she learned from the SR22. She's getting better about using the TX safety. Never could figure out why Ruger did that, it ruined the SR
