Taurus have updated the PT-22 (chambered in .22 LR) and the PT-25 (chambered in .25 ACP). They are now lightweight polymer and are much sleeker that the old steel version.

The old model PT-22

The old line has a wide range of models featuring every grip you could imagine. It is not known if they will update the old models or standardize on the the “classic” polymer-type models (two tone and black)

The new model weights in at 10.8 ounces and as you can see in the top photo feature a larger trigger guard.

    Update on "Bright Sights" for new all black Poly PT22.

    In a word INCREDIBLE ! Painted the front sight orange, and dabbled green dots on rear sights, as per Bright Sights recommendation. Hey, perhaps it's just my old eyes, but I couldn't see the black sights when aiming at a dark target. Now they just seem to glow color brightly. Pretty cool product!

    best regards, lm

    I recently picked up a Taurus PT-25 used. The pearl grips were cracked so I ordered Rosewood grips online. After I took the grips off and cleaned the gun the slide slipped and wont stay. So now when the magazine is in and I try to fire the gun it slides forward but doesn't go back unless you physically move it. Does anyone have any suggestions or know what happened?
