Taurus has announced the next iteration of its TaurusTX 22 .22 LR semi-automatic sporting pistol. The new TaurusTX 22 Competition (MSRP: $485) builds on the original TaurusTX 22 with a slide assembly engineered for optic compatibility.

The original TaurusTX 22 proved to be a big hit with rimfire fans after its 2019 introduction. Taurus developed this full-frame polymer handgun with a focus on ergonomics and performance to deliver a budget-friendly, competition-level pistol.

With a skeletonized slide, the new TaurusTX 22 Competition includes a cutout between the ejection port to just behind the front sight. A 5-inch bull barrel with the breech end machined will accept a base mounting plate. Two small adapter plates are provided to provide four different mounting patterns. The mounting system allows the use of the following (but not limited to) sight models: Trijicon RMR, C-More STS2, Vortex Venom, Doctor Noblex, Burris Fast Fire, Sightmark Mini, Holosun HS507C and the Leupold DeltaPoint Pro. In addition, the match-grade bull barrel comes threaded from the factory to accept a suppressor or muzzle device and includes a thread protector.

Says Jessie Harrison, captain of the Taurus Shooting Team:

“The engineers at Taurus definitely thought outside of the box on this firearm, from the beginning of the TaurusTX 22 to this competition model. They put a lot of thought and research into the ergonomics of the grip and designed something that feels natural in the hand. The trigger system is unlike any other Taurus firearm—a single-action-only, striker-fired trigger that feels smooth and breaks crisp. That’s important from a competitor's standpoint for speed and rapid fire. The threaded barrel that would be typically used for a suppressor doubles for a compensator, if you so choose. All that’s needed is to add your optic of choice and you’re off to the races."

Taurus will also offer a TX22 Competition upper kit for those who wish to convert existing TaurusTX 22s to the Competition configuration. Learn more at taurususa.com.
