    Taurus Firearm Suggestion - TX22 in other (22WMR) calibers???

    It seems to me, given all the attention raised by the release of the new TX22, it might be successful in other calibers as well. Like the revolver series from 17-22WMR, maybe the TX22 could run as a series, and especially to give some competition to the Kel-Tec PMR30??

    I would gladly drive down to Miami and camp on the sidewalk to get one ASAP. Your thoughts, please??

    I can't see it with the current design. Keltec had to incorporate a slight rotating barrel to make it work. It would take a total redesign of the upper half and then it would definitely be a different model from the TX.

    I do think there is room for a suppressor ready .22 Mag pistol in the market.

    22 mag is the next logical step, however chamber pressures may require a bit more strength in the slide components. I think it could be a Keltec killer if they did. Because really wasting 30 rounds of 22mag can be a cost issue. Whereas 14-16 rounds would be easier to control usage. Also the TX22 is smaller and likely more comfortable to carry and use( I have not held a PMR30 so forgive if I assume too much). So that then takes the TX22 into self defense carry arena. I think it would be a great addition.

    I suspected there were more mechanical boogers, but I ain't no 'smith.

    I'd say you're right on the money, and that's exactly why I'd luv to see an alternative to the PMR. I have handled them, and just can't bring myself to buy it because of the grip. While I'm OK with it's relatively larger size grip, I'm not comfortable with the narrow front strap. Just doesn't feel comfortable to me, or like a 'real' gun. I even kinda like the futuristic 'space-gun' look, but just not comfortable with the grip. TX could have swap-able grips, and I'd even be OK with a WMR version down to the 'normal' 10 round capacity.

    If Taurus did decide to put out a TX22 in 22WMR, I would buy one immediately. I like the PMR30 but they are hard to find and still a bit pricey.

    It would have to be a locked breach or have a slide as heavy as a Hi Point.

    I have not held the TX22 but have handled the PMR several times and to me the grip feel is just simply bad.

    If they made a 22WMR, I'd buy a Hi-Point. So why not our beloved Taurus??

    Yep. I can never find the right words for it. Kinda like a big awkward wedge. I fondle them at each gun show, but just can't bring myself to buy.
