    Does anyone know what models Taurus is manufacturing at their Bainbridge, GA facility?

    I’m a resident of Georgia and I’m always looking for an excuse to buy another firearm. I am glad Georgia has:
    1. Glock in Smyrna,
    2. H&K in Columbus,
    3. Daniel Defense in Ellabell,
    4. Honor Defense in Gainesville,
    and most recently
    5. Taurus in Bainbridge

    I’ve asked Taurus for this info by email through their online contact; I got no useful info and I understand a company’s reluctance to release such.

    Unless they are making full auto military arms I see no reason for reluctance in disclosure.

    I would think they would be proud in revealing what they manufacture.

    I received a generic thank you email with an invitation to reply if my inquiry hadn’t been handled. I replied — no response after a week.

    I believe they make the TX22 in GA now. I've been wanting to get one but was waiting until the new barrels are in full production.

    First 2,000 TX22 Pistols built in Bainbridge GA went on sale less than 2 months back. I believe the were exclusive to Bainbridge LGS. I have no idea how far along they are towards full scale production of the TX22 and other products there.

    Thanks! One can’t have too many twenty-twos, & the TX22 gets good reviews.
    Sometime this next week I’ll try calling the Taurus help number. I’ll report back if I get any good info.

    I emailed them too and have heard nothing. Let’s race to see who hears first

    Have they taken over for Flint River Mills? I hardly see their feed anymore. Flown into the Bainbridge a time or two and driven there a few times for steel strapping. Came all the way from Quincy, FL for those trips (what twenty five miles by road and twenty by air?) The armory down town had a Sherman on Display for decades. Hope al the Taurus employees enjoy Lake Seminole.

    Update: after getting one more round stating that due to office relocations their responses had been delayed (I understand; it happens to any organization), I got the following answer:

    Thank you for your support :). At this time the only firearms that are manufactured in Bainbridge Ga at this time is our Heritage small bore and the TX22.

    Thank you for choosing Taurus,
    Asilynne
    Taurus USA


    I have a Heritage .22 with birds head grips and both lr & mag cylinders, so now I’ll have to get the TX22.

    I know the revolvers and Beretta copies are made in Brazil, probably the other stuff too cause it's cheaper there. My educated guess is they make little in the US and do warranty work there/importing/paperwork.
