Terry - What ammo were you using when the slide came off?

CCI Quiet 750 FPS. Apparently a very hot load. Actually, I don't even see any wear on the gun I have 2,000 plus rounds through, let alone having a mechanical failure of any kind. I shoot mainly Mini Mags, Remington Golden Bullets, and Blazer. I did try Quiet rounds but not enough power to move the slide back. Not "Quiet" either in a handgun. I think your going to enjoy this gun.

Picked up the TX22 yesterday. Haven't fired it or even disassembled & cleaned it yet.

Haven't looked much into spare magazines yet. Figure there's not much point until I'm sure the gun is a keeper.

The only malfunctions I've heard of were magazine related. Being a double column magazine it's not a good idea to pull down the button on the magazine and dump the cartridges in. You'll the rim over the top of the next cartridge causing a FTF. I load by hand as I would a centerfire or use a Uplula loader.

WOW! Are we talking questionable quality control?

We're talking about my hard head. Seriously it's early day's yet but the pistols, my two at least, seem to have been well designed and executed. Some have reported "Chattering" which I had to look up, but I see no signs of it on either barrel. If the slide had dome off my first word would have been LAWYER!

Terry - I read the chattering comments (caused by rough rifling cuts for any unfamiliar), but didnít see any that said the accuracy was affected to the point that it would matter for my purposes. I havenít used mine yet, but did look at the barrel lands right after getting it. Theyíre about like a lot of the pics online, looking like the broach or button used for rifling either was dull or was going too fast, and so the rifling isnít as smooth as most guns; but then, this one is cheaper than most guns (this was only $229 +tax with two magazines and threaded-barrel adapter), so I can probably live with it. For my uses of plinking, drills, plates, etc, it probably wonít make much functional difference, except for probably building up lead quicker and so take more cleaning.

Canít say for sure yet, only time will tell.

Good luck with it, John. I know I'm glad they've opened up a Stock and Field store closer than the Cabela's where I used to buy .22's. I'm going through a lot of them lately. Shooting the TX22 has got me back into the revolver's and Ruger Semi-automatics also.

Finally shot the TX22 today. Not much, just two magazines, but was very pleasantly surprised. No bobbles at all, and more than accurate enough for my purposes once I accepted that it requires a six-o'clock hold; which I usually donít use.

Shooting winchester bulk plated hp stuff at 10-15 yards, it let me pick which fallen leaf in the dirt I wanted to hit. The trigger is also better than a lot of much more expensive guns.

Not nearly enough rounds thru it to firmly call it a Ďwinnerí; it could still fail or disappoint somehow, but first impressions are nothing but positive.

Fwiw, did some looking and found a decent deal on 16-round TX22 magazines at gunprodeals. They have them at $15.99; the total for two came out to $40.93 including shipping, so not a great deal, but the best I found.

I assume thatís a typo on their page. Theyíre listing it as the actual taurus part number, which is how I was searching; looking for taurusí part number for the 16-rounders.

They came in today's mail. Standard polymer factory magazines, in Taurus blister packaging. Seems good; may get a chance to try them this weekend.

Yeah, the Gun Pro one that's advertised as steel is the same Taurus plastic one. Both are original Taurus manufacture.
