TaurusTX 22 Competition Details

The Competition model follows up on the popular TaurusTX 22. The semi-automatic rimfire features a full frame and a focus on performance. Now the TaurusTX 22 Competition delivers an out-of-the-box platform ready to race.

The new pistol also comes chambered for .22 LR. It features a newly designed slide and barrel assembly designed to work with red dot optics. The skeletonized slide comes with a cutout between the ejection port and front side of the slide. The 5-inch bull barrel’s breech end features machining to accept a base mounting plate. Two smaller adapter plates offer four different mounting patterns.

Mounting Patterns

  • Trijicon RMR
  • C-More STS2
  • Vortex Venom, Doctor Noblex, Burris Fast Fire, Sightmark Mini
  • Holosun HS507C
  • Leupold Delta Point Pro, Bushnell RXS-250

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

“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. “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!”

At undre $500, the TaurusTX 22 Competition is a value and ready to compete.

Best of all, the TX 22 Competition retails for under $500, at $484.85. Taurus will also offer a TX22 Competition upper kit through its website. For even more info, please visit
