    second issue with TX22

    so, after resolving the reversed extractor problem, I took my TX22 to the range to shoot and it was very reliable but shooting low and right (like 4" in each dimension at 7 yards)

    after reading up on adjusting the sights, I took it back to the range to work on getting it shooting straight. after several rounds of not making any consistent improvement, I realized that the rear sight adjustable insert was not being held firmly by the adjustment screws, but instead just rattling all over the place. complete junk.

    so I ordered a set of fiber optic sights from lakeline for $50.

    pretty disappointed at this point. bought this because it got good reviews and was operationally the most like a modern centerfire polymer gun to be able to practice more often for less money and wrist fatigue (even fits in my HK VP9 holster perfectly)

    at this point, I wish I had dropped the extra $100 for the Walther PPQ/22. lesson learned.

    Several months ago, I picked up a new Beretta M9A1-22 for $290. It is a fun one to shoot (and inexpensive)!

    complete junk. I know I loved mine perfect trainer for my p10-c. But after a bad barrel and abs broken slide. I'm done with Taurus. Took the chance on cheap gun. But once cry once. I had the ppg22 tactical loved sold it cause I had a TX22 that it thought was good to go. Lesson learned bought a grand power k22 x trim not gonna look back at the TX22 when I get it back from Taurus in 12 weeks.

    willwrk4Gunz, All you need to do is compare the front of your GP slide and compare it to your Taurus. Looks like the GP is about 1/2 thick, The tx22 is paper thin (hence tx slides cracking or breaking) I did a little research there isn't another 22 that I can find that is anywhere as thin as the Taurus. Cheap and very poorly designed. My Ruger SR22 is exactly 1/2 thick. I got burned by the TX22 also. Got rid of it after it came back (took 12 weeks) Taurus will never see a dime of my money again.

    Good to know, thanks. I'll stick with Taurus revolvers.

    Really makes you wonder about Taurus gun engineers, quality control, and customer service, doesn't it?
    Electing Joe Biden as President will be similar to going bear hunting at night with just a pair of chop sticks and a lit candle. You know it is a bad idea from the outset, you can not defend yourself, you are ill prepared for what can and maybe will happen, and you question why you even thought it would be a good idea in the first place.

    My TX22 was the first gun I ever bought that doesn't hit point of aim with a fully adjustable rear sight. I almost sold it but I learned it's a good trainer pistol for new shooters. Once their groups shrink I move them to my centerfire guns. Mine shoots high with the sight all the way down. I shot it once, put it in the safe for 16 months then used it to teach 2 people to shoot last month. I don't shoot it. There's no point.
