Taurus TX22
Taurus TX22
  • High capacity
  • Suppressor adapter included
  • Affordable
  • Mediocre trigger
  • Tricky takedown
Editor’s Note:

The Taurus TX22 is a great choice for target shooting, plinking, small game hunting, and sometimes even self-defense. Most .22 LR pistols hold 10 rounds due to concerns about rimlocking. However, Taurus seems to have figured this problem out and created an ergonomic, great-shooting rimfire pistol with a capacity of 16 rounds.  The TX22 features a polymer frame with an ergonomic grip design and match-grade threaded bull barrel.  Overall, the Taurus TX22 is a reliable and accurate 22LR pistol that’s ideal for a variety of uses. As with most Taurus products, it comes in at an attractive price point, and its features have put it ahead of many of the guns in its class.

By The Numbers - Taurus TX22

Accuracy is solid across most ammunition types
As with other Taurus products, you may hear about some lemons, but by in large, this is a reliable rimfire pistol.
Its quick popularity has led to a fairly strong aftermarket
Ergonomics are good, but a longer beavertail and adjustable backstraps would have been nice
Getting a high-capacity .22 LR pistol that is accurate and reliable at this price is tough to beat

Glock 44

Glock 44


“The .22 LR Glock G44 does what it is supposed to do. Shots on target, reliable with specific ammo, and it comes in at a great value. Plus it’s nearly identical to the Glock 19 which makes it the perfect training and plinking gun. Rounding out why this might be worthy of your time…accessories. Because it’s a Glock means that it has a ton of accessories and aftermarket parts ready to throw on.” – Johnny B.

FN 502 Tactical

FN 502 Tactical


“The FN 502 Tactical is a .22 LR built on the 509 design. It features aggressive texturing, 15+1 capacity, and can easily accommodate a suppressor and red dot. For those seeking a similar feel to the FN 509 but also wanting to save money by training with .22 LR, this is a great option. The gun also has a place in introducing new students to the platform. If you are looking for a tactically feature-rich .22 plinker, look no further than the FN 502 Tactical.” – Sean Curtis

“The Ruger LCP II is a fantastic option for people looking for an easily concealed .380 ACP pistol. It is surprisingly accurate, considering its size, and plenty reliable for self-defense. One thing we’d like to see is better customization options. All in all, we really like this gun.”

final verdict

Taurus threw conventional thinking in the trashcan when designing the TX22. Gone were the days of limiting rimfire magazines to 10 rounds and scaling down an existing gun. The TX22 was built from the ground up to be competitive both feature and price-wise, and it has definitely succeeded. A strong aftermarket and larger companies being forced to make similar guns help showcase how good the TX22 really is.
