First of all, .22 LR ammo is inexpensive. When I was a boy I remember going to the local hardware store with my brothers where each shelled out thirty-five cents for a box of fifty .22s. This portion of our weekly allowance enabled the three of us to enjoy an afternoon of plinking with our single shot .22 rifles. While the price of .22s has gone up since then, even the most prudent shooter can afford them without engendering the displeasure of their bank manager.
And .22s don’t make a lot of noise which means they can be fired in areas where letting a round off from a centrefire handgun or rifle might irritate the local residents, their pets or livestock — and result in a visit by a member of the local constabulary.
Taurus-TX22 Hi-Standard Model
The Taurus TX22 certainly isn’t your granddaddy’s .22 pistol with its modern polymers and CNC manufacturing, but this Hi-Standard Model GD certainly was. It was owned by Firearms News Editor Vincent DeNiro’s grandfather.
Some .22 LR ammunition offerings back in the 1950s and 60s were from Remington, Peterson, and Revelation.
.22 firearms produce almost no recoil making them a natural choice for teaching new shooters … and enabling experienced shooters to practice more.
The TX22’s grip texturing provides a secure purchase and displays excellent ergonomics.
So, I’m sure that the readers will agree with me when I say, “What’s not to like about a .22?”
The firm of Taurus Forjas of Porto Alegre, Brazil is the largest handgun manufacturer in Latin American. They began making handguns 1941 and in 1968 entered the world firearms market where, thanks to their quality and economical prices, they have become a major player.
Unlike most .22 pistols on today’s market the TX22’s hold sixteen rounds.
As has just about every handgun maker of note — and some of no note whatsoever — Taurus now produces a line of full size, compact and subcompact polymer frame pistols in .380, 9mm, .45 and .45 calibers that have proven popular with civilians, police and militaries around the world.
It will come as no surprise to our handgun savvy readership that the TX22 uses an injected molded Polymer frame. This helps keep the pistol’s weight down while providing improved resistance to moisture, salts, solvents, wear and abuse and has the added benefit of reducing manufacturing costs which saving is passed along to the customer.
When I picked the TX22 up for the first time it was evident that a lot of thought went into the ergonomics of the grip frame. I had several persons, with different sized hands, handle the pistol and all said it fit their hands well and provided excellent “pointability.”
The TX22 displayed above average ergonomics and reliability
The magazine release can we switched from port to starboard side for the Southpaws out there, although I found it recessed a bit too much for fast operation. The ambi safety levers are close to the frame which is a plus and a negative. They won’t hang up on a holster, belt or other gear but they are a bit difficult to manipulate.
Another benefit of its low operating pressures is that the TX22’s slide is machined from light weight aluminum. To calm those who might be concerned about how the aluminum slide would stand up to extensive firing, Taurus’ engineers solved the problem by installing a separate steel breech face (which the owner’s manual refers to as an “impact insert”).
