Editors’ Picks 2019: Taurus TX22 Pistol

Taurus designed and built an all-new .22 Long Rifle pistol right here in the United States. Called the TX22 (MSRP $349), the polymer-frame pistol has racy, modern lines, and its low bore axis and a generous beavertail really let the shooter get into the gun (p. 54). Height is 5.44", overall length is 7.06", barrel length is 4.10" and the weight is 17.3 ozs., thanks to its anodized-aluminum slide. It comes with a bilateral manual safety at the frame’s rear, and the magazine release is reversible for lefties. Sights are three-dot with a dovetailed front and a windage- and elevation-adjustable, low-profile rear. Magazine capacity is 16 rounds, and that’s with a width of only 1.25". The pistol’s best feature, though, is its crisp, single-action trigger—called the Taurus Pittman Trigger System—that breaks at about 4 lbs. with a short reset. The sample here at NRA HQ runs like a sewing machine. taurususa.com
