Well, back in the spring I reported to you that my new PT-22 was constant failure to feed/failure to extract with seven different types of .22 ammo.
Three weeks ago I finally mailed it back to Taurus in Miami with a letter explaining the problems. Yesterday, FedEx delivered it back to me. The enclosed repair report from Taurus said that they replaced the firing pin and adjusted the barrel ramp/hood. Taurus has a Lifetime Service Policy, so my only cost was about $7.00 UPS ground to mail it (they didn't ask and I didn't volunteer the contents of the package). Taurus repairs are free.
Got back from the range one hour ago after firing the same types of .22 ammo through the PT-22. What a difference !!! Even the cheap Federal Lighting were 100% feed, fire, and extraction. But, it likes Remington "Golden" .22 LR and CCI Mini Mags the best.
Now, I've got a reliable mouse gun !! :D

I had similar problems with my Taurus PT-22 but even after two trips to the factory, it would not work. They claimed they fixed a bunch of stuff but it came back just as I sent it out and had the same problems with all type of ammo.

I was not happy with the entire situation and it and another Taurus has me cold for the brand for now.

As a side note, I have a Beretta 21A which is the gun that Taurus tried to copy with the PT-22 and it is much better than the PT-22 ever was. It is even much more accurate.

My PT22 jammed right away when I got it in 1998. But I sent it in (back then, it didn't have to be next day), and they said they adjusted the lips of the mag. Works great ever since.

Picked up two of them when they first came out, they worked fine, but sent them back to have them smooth up just a little, also asked them to install flat floor plates, which they did at no cost, carried both on the vest up untill last year, now a young trooper is carrying them

albania:

I almost gave up on the concept of a small, cheap .22 pocket pistol. In the letter to Taurus, I told them that if they could not fix it to send me back a model chambered in .25 ACP, and not .22 LR. Fortunately, they got it right this time, but if I could do it all over again, I'd get the PT-25 for out of the box reliability.
