Armscor in 22 TCM

Last time out with the .22 TCM barrel - resting on top of my range box -- shoots very flat @ 50 yards --

I’ve also got a 22 tcm. The first one was terrible I sent it back to the factory. They told me the gun was not repairable and sent me a brand new one. I figured great!!! Took it out 2 days ago and the gun is shooting fine. Couple ftf but a slight nudge with thumb and she would be fine. The big problem is it’s a shotgun. I get groups like yours at 10 yards or less. At 25 yards it struggles to keep the shots on a piece of notebook paper. I own 2 other rocks and I’m starting to loose faith

Mine has been flawless. It’s a hoot to shoot. Everyone loves it.

I have a sample CCO 9mm/.22TCM combo that runs just fine and shoots really well with the 9mm barrel. The TCM cartridge is more than good enough for groundhog sized targets out to 30 yards or so. The .22 TCM's blast and flash Is a bit much though.

People need to be periodically reminded that guns are just tools and that their resale value is your children's problem.

It takes time for the potential of new cartridges to be understood and embraced. Armscor introduced the .22TCM and .22TCM9R and pistols to shoot them as "range toys" because it skirted all the usual and expected BS about .22 caliber bottleneck cartridges being designed specifically for use against cops.
Never mind that factory .22TCM/9R ammo far exceeds factory 5.7x28 in terms of velocity, and that it generates equal to greater energy than most 9mm loads. People have been told it's a "toy" cartridge.
The fact is, the .22TCM/9R is a high performance round with superior steel plate and Kevlar penetration over the 9mm. The ammo weighs less and recoils less. Aside from being limited to rather "stubby" bullet designs, the .22TCM/9R IS THE ROUND the 5.7x28 could have been and for a lot less money invested. The .22TCM was designed around the 1911 action and the "9R" version uses a stub-nose 39 grain JHP that allows it to fit and feed through 9mm length magazines and actions.
One need only look at the Ft. Hood shooting to see in stark detail the effectiveness of .22 caliber bullets impacting at 1,700 fps to know the .22TCM with muzzle velocity averaging over 2,000 fps is even more damaging.
I have six handguns chambered in .22TCM9R and two in .22TCM. I developed the 5.56x24 as an alternative to not being able to load for the .22TCM9R due to a lack of suitable bullets, and the 5.56x24 stands on it's own in being able to use any bullet the .22TCM can yet still feed through a 9mm magazine.
While the 5.7x28 is proven as it the Five-seveN pistol, the .22TCM/9R is over 300 fps faster in factory ammo, less expensive to buy, reloadable, and conversion units exist to fit Glocks, MAPPs - and by extension CZ-75, and 1911s.
