    I sure wish the 922 didn't weigh in at 40 oz. I'd like to see something DA with 3 or 4" barrel, twin cylinders and a light frame, more like the Ruger LCR. I sure don't need 40 oz to soak up the recoil of a 22 mag or drag my pants down while hiking to fishing spots

    Fascinating question. Most of the answers can be found here. BBTI - Ballistics by the Inch :: Calibers/Cartridges

    looking at this data, i'd say you need 4" to 5" in barrel length for both .22 and 22mag or you are really giving up a lot of velocity. After 10" or 11" you have gotten most of the velocity and gains are much smaller per inch.

    I contacted a large LGS in San Antonio about the new Taurus revolver. They said there was no indication they are shipping yet. Wonder if there are any on display at SHOT this year. I won't be there but perhaps one of writers will get to try out one.

This one was the sweet spot, as there have been no further light strikes or ignition failures.

    Regarding the trigger spring, the Wolff replacement reduced the trigger break from about 6 + pounds to about 3.5 pounds. However, I wanted a target trigger with a lighter break. Springs are cheap, so I experimented. I cut 3 coils off of that spring. And there she was - 2.75 pound trigger break. What a difference! This Tracker 970 feels like a completely different revolver. It feels and breaks like a tuned Smith. And since I have tuned Smiths, the comparison is ripe for me to make.

    The only other mod I performed to the Tracker was to replace the cheesy, small factory grips with some target sized wooden grips.

    This thing is now a contender...

    My primary LGS gir in a used Charter Arms Pathfinder snubnose 22lr in stainless. Feels pretty solid. Occasionally I get decent deals there, but not often. But $350 seems high for a used one. Heck the new 942 has an msrp of about that. Thinking msrp on the Charter is about $329, but could be mistaken.

    The 992 is an incredible firearm. Cleaning-up some of the internals provided a satin smooth D/A, and about 3.5 lbs S/A.

    And yeah... I'm not sure about the factory rubber grips. My hands needed a little more real estate to hold this muzzle-heavy beast.
    However, it out-shoots both our 6" 617, and our Colt 6" Diamondback in terms of accuracy with essentially stock internals.

    I just saw that the new Taurus model 942 revolvers with be available in both 2" and 3" barrels, both .22LR and .22 magnum (WMR), and both full steel weight and also ultra-light (UL) weights versions. This came from here - SHOT show news:
    Return of the Taurus 942

    Looks like you can drift the rear sight on those. Excellent, and to me an essential feature on a 22. I want to be able to harvest a frog or a squirrel for the pot.
