Taurus has unveiled the "next iteration" of its ground-breaking Taurus TX 22 semi-auto sporting pistol.

Enter the new TaurusTX 22 Competition, which builds on the original with a slide assembly specifically for optic compatibility.

The TaurusTX 22 platform, introduced in early 2019, set a new standard for rimfire pistols. Taurus developed this full-frame polymer handgun with a focus on ergonomics and "custom-tuned" performance to deliver an out-of-the-box competition level pistol that is both budget-friendly and a training platform for shooters of all skill levels.

For 2021, Taurus advances the platform with the all-new TaurusTX 22 Competition, chambered for .22LR. The newly engineered slide and barrel assembly is designed to work with red dot optics.


"The engineers at Taurus definitely thought outside of the box on this firearm, from the beginning of the TaurusTX 22 to this competition model," said Jessie Harrison, world-champion shooter and Captain of the Taurus Shooting Team.


The TaurusTX 22 Competition features a "skeletonized" slide with a cutout between the ejection port to just behind the front sight. Part of the platform is a 5-inch bull barrel with the breech end machined to accept a base mounting plate. Two small adapter plates are provided to provide four different mounting patterns.

This 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
  • Leupold Delta Point Pro

The match-grade bull barrel comes threaded from the factory to accept a suppressor or muzzle device and includes a thread protector.

MSRP for the new TaurusTX 22 Competition is $484.85. The company will also offer a TX22 Competition upper kit available through the Taurus webstore for those who wish to convert their TaurusTX 22 to the Competition configuration. For more info: TaurusUSA.com.
