    I bought a TX22 the other week. After doing some forum searching I found out about the barrel problems. My barrel looked horrible when I checked it with my borescope. Called customer service and they told me that it's a known problem with a certain barrel manufacturer and they are sending me a new barrel on the mail. Let's see how long it takes and how the replacement looks then I will report back here.

    just seems odd that a manufacture that buys parts from an outside source would not run quality control checks (and lots of them) on the parts they recieve?
    BUT in MY opinion thats one big down fall on Taurus --their Quality control and inspection.
    I say this in receiving very good product, several fair products and a few crap products from them.

    Welcome John, I believe I know you from mewe. I was the one who mentioned to you about the barrel issue. I hope you stick around, there are a lot of good folks and good info in this forum.

    I hope Taurus takes care of you too.

    I received my replacement barrel a couple days ago. Something on it is out spec. It is too wide to slide into the frame. I have heard from several that the new barrels do fit more snuggly into the frame. Mine is too wide though.

    I wonder just how many of these 3rd party barrels were sold with the tx22. How can I know if I got one too? Has Taurus distributed a list of serial numbers affected? This is surprising since the only issue I read about was the front site becoming loose after 500 rounds. A magazine article called the tx22 the hand gun of the year.

    Should tx22 owners be cautious and forgo excessive shooting in fear of a major malfunction that could potentially injure the shooter?

    Thank you to this forum that I found out about the TX22 LR's barrel issues after my gun was shipped out to my FFL so I knew to inspect it and what to look for when it came in. Early serial number in 50ks[ATTACH]455689[/ATTACH

    My FFL is waiting on shipping label from Palmetto for exchange pistols or swap out for a new barrel.

    Curious for anyone that got a replacement barrel how long you waited. I purchased my tx22 a few weeks ago and had major accuracy issues after just 20-30 rounds with various ammo types. I called taurus and they said the barrels are on back order but will send me one when they get them. He also mentioned the new ones were tighter and would need a break in period. That was concerning since even though it could not hit the target after a bit the thing was 100% reliable.

    Took it to the range twice each cleaning thoroughly before with same results. I do not see much chattering on the rifling as others mentioned, but the crown is really sharp and jagged at the end. Here is a pic after 40 rounds with heavy leading visible.


    Here are the last 5 shots, all keyholed, this was from 7 yards, I swear I am not that bad of a shot since the first 10 after cleaning were all in the center within an inch of each other.
