If you’ve never shot a pistol chambered in the original 22 TCM, you are missing out. Pushing a tiny bullet at nearly 2,000 FPS out of a 1911 style platform resulted in a feeling that was similar to shooting a very noisy airsoft gun. To put it mildly, it was rad. But the original 22 TCM was too long to function in most modern semi-autos. Until now, because Armscor has just launched the 22 TCM 9R round, and a set of Glock conversion barrels for it!
So what’s the difference? Simple, really. Using the same brass, Armscor shortened the length of the projectile, bringing to the same OAL as a standard 9mm round. What that means is that now using one of the conversion barrels for either a G17 or a G19, you can have the maximum amount of fun you’re allowed to have with a handgun.
It’s difficult to explain, but imagine shooting a .22 LR that sounds a 9mm, or imagine shooting a 9mm that has basically no recoil. That’s a 22 TCM 9R, it’s just unbelievable fun to shoot such a flat shooting round, and now you can do it out of a Glock with these conversion barrels. The barrels are priced at the extremely affordable level of $140, and come with everything you need to get started shooting, except for ammo. There’s the barrel, a guide rod, and a recoil spring, which is specifically designed for the .22 TCM 9R round, guaranteeing optimal function.
There are some practical uses for this cartridge as well – it’s great for small game and varmints, and it would make a good “in-between” round for a new shooter who’s ready to graduate from a .22, but maybe isn’t ready for a full on 9mm yet. No matter what though, the first time you drop the striker on one of these rounds, you’re going to be grinning from ear to ear.
