Taurus’ latest pistol, the .22LR chambered TX22, is officially on its way to consumers, shipping out to dealers nationwide.

The Taurus TX22 is a single-action only striker-fire system with a 16+1 capacity. The pistol boasts a full-size polymer handgun designed to maximize comfort for shooters while a proprietary grip texturing encourages correct hand placement. The TX22 adds a fully adjustable rear sight to its design alongside a reversible mag release. The system is topped off with suppressor-ready muzzle threading and a 5-pound trigger pull.

It is the perfect training handgun for beginners and those who have developed flinching habits,” Taurus said in a news release. “With its gentle recoil, crisp trigger and quick target acquisition, new shooters will enjoy immediate results.”

The TX22 does offer a 10-round model for those living in restrictive states. The TX22 is shipping now with an MSRP of $349.
