    TX22 Cracked Slide

    My TX22, Purchased in April with 3-4 thousand rds fired (nothing hotter than CCI MINI MAGS). While doing a usual cleaning I noticed that the front of the slide where the recoil assembly is housed was CRACKED! The recoil spring assembly had worn away the right side of the slide which resulted in the slide cracking. You could see where the aluminum inside of the slide was shiny & worn. This happened within 3 months since purchased. I returned it to my LGS where it was purchased middle of June & it's been at Taurus ever since. I checked with Taurus yesterday about repair status and they told me it was still under review (???) and would probably be another 6-8 weeks. Anyone else hear of this problem. I love the gun , but this quite disheartening.

    If you could, please consider posting a good picture of the crack in the slide. I've never heard of a 22 pistol doing that before.

    Maybe they should go with a steel slide?

    A steel slide will not work, it is too heavy for a 22 caliber round to cycle. Nobody uses a steel slide for a 22 pistol. Even Rock Island which uses a steel slide had to cut the top half out of the slide like a model 92 to get the weight low enough for the 22 round to cycle the slide.

    My first semi-auto 22 handgun was a Phoenix HP-22A with a MSRP of $149. It specified SV ammo but I couldn't find it and used the lower powered HV ammo in it. The slide cracked on it at around 3,500 rounds I called Phoenix because it has a lifetime warranty but didn't expect they would honor the warranty because I had been using "unapproved" ammo in it. They didn't ask me anything about the ammo and simply asked that I mail the slide to them. I mailed the slide to them and got a new slide back in exactly a week (Virginia to California and back).

    That is quite disappointing. I certainly hope it is an isolated problem as I love my TX22. I will be watching my wear patterns as I shoot it.

    3-4 thousand rounds is a lot of ammo,nevertheless the slide should perform almosy indefinitely.If you can get us some Pics.I scrutinized mine after your post and 1,500 rounds and no wear .good luck.

    I have two. One with close to twp thousand rounds, one with about three hundred rounds fired. The only wear I see is on the ejection port top where the empties come through. I fire HV 1200 FPS almost exclusively.
