    Sending my TX22 Back to Taurus For Repair (Barrel Issue)

    I have not shot my TX22 much in the past year; maybe less than 500 rounds. I have shot Winchester 333 (does not cycle well at all), Blazer (Good Stuff), CCI Stinger (better stuff) and finally SK Match Rifle. The SK was subsonic and also did not cycle very at all. No matter the ammo, the TX22 did not group well. I chalked this up to the fact that I am just not that seasoned of a shooter... but after reading a number of threads on here about the barrel issues, I decided to scrutinize the barrel a little closer; After a thorough cleaning session, I really could see, that at the last 1/2 to 3/4 inches of the rifling was "chattered" up pretty good. I assumed machining marks (?) What I thought was left over carbon/trash or whatever from shooting, would not come out of barrel with a brass brush, I soon realized was the rifling was slightly galled up.

    Nevertheless, the TX22 is going back to the Taurus repair center in Georgia, and the customer service rep said to expect a 12-week wait for repairs.

    STILL waiting on a new barrel from Taurus, they promised to send one, along with two mags 'for the inconvenience'. Good luck with yours, hope they get the new barrels soon.

    My 1st TX's barrel was so bad, I sold it back to my LGS.
    My second actually looks great. Luck of the draw, I guess.
    If this one turns out not to meet my liking. it will take a trip to GA.

    Received notification from Taurus that they have received my TX22, and that evaluation & repair time will take up to 12-weeks.

    Keep us updated on this.

    I'm thinking about a purchase of a TX22. The LGS's all have the TX22 as a rental gun so I'll be able to see how those are holding up and if there are any foibles with it.

    Accuracy issue aside, the TX22 is one of the most comfortable handguns I have ever held, the ergonomics are great! I paid full price for mine ($299), and have no regrets. Seeing as Taurus customer service has been awesome to deal with so far, I expect an even better performing TX22 upon its return.

    Quick update; it has been 13-weeks since I sent of my TX22. I called Taurus and inquired the status on my service request, and the customer service lady said there are no updates to the service. She said that until they have released the TX22 from repair, there would be no update to report.

    That's ridiculous. Is there only one person in a back room at Taurus doing all the repairs? Unreal.
