Taurus TX22 Competition SCR pistol is optic ready
The Taurus TX22 Competition SCR comes from the factory with two different base plates for optics, giving options to mount some of the most popular red dot optics straight on the barrel.

The Taurus TX22 Competition SCR takes the original TX22 and takes it up a notch. This full-sized semi-auto pistol has been re-engineered with the competitive shooter in mind. The optic ready slide and 5” barrel assembly offer the competitive shooter a match-grade accuracy they demand.

The skeletonized slide with a larger ejection port was designed to allow the red dot to be mounted on the barrel to reduce any issues with the ejection of the shells. It is reported to enhance the accuracy compared to the slide-mounted option. Adapter plates are included in the package so that a variety of base plate patterns can be achieved that match up a variety of popular red dot brands on the market.

The re-engineered design of the TX22 Competition SCR pistol allows faster rapid-fire capabilities of the shooter and a smoother trigger pull.

Additional upgrades to the Taurus TX22 Competition SCR include the TANDEMKROSS Game Changer Pro Squared Compensator and TANDEMKROSS Eagle’s Talon extractor, the latter only being found on the TX Competition SCR. The compensator adds the dual 45-degree-angle gas venting to counter muzzle rise and recoil for faster follow-up rounds, not to mention improving the overall balance of the pistol to allow the shooter to stay in the zone for shooting.

The TX22 trigger is said to be smooth with a crisp break that allows for an increase of overall speed in rapid-fire capabilities for the shooter.  Paired with the TANDEMKROSS Eagle’s Talon extractor, failure to ejects and other malfunctions have been said to be greatly reduced.

Patti Miller is one of the most awesome females in the tactical/firearm (or any) industry. Imagine a tall, hawt, dangerous Laura Ingalls Wilder type with cool hair and a suppressed blaster and you'll be getting the idea. What's interesting is that in addition to being a willing brawler and intrepid adventuress, she's also an Ent/Ogier level gardener and a truly badass baker.
