Stainless Steel Recoil Assembly for the Taurus TX22

In stock


Buffered Recoil Assembly for the Standard Taurus TX22  (does not fit the Competition version) pistol that includes:

  • Fully Assembled Recoil Assembly

Lakeline Stainless Steel Guide rods have a reputation for being tough, really tough!

The buffer absorbs and damps some of the shock load into the slide from the spring when firing the pistol. The polymer buffer rides against the slide, preventing anything steel from a spring or washer from riding on the soft aluminum slide as in other designs.  The Lakeline LLC Buffered Recoil Assembly simply can’t mark or gouge the slide on your TX22.  There is nothing better to enhance the longevity of your TX22 slide.

The flat wire spring sees lower stress levels and has a longer life than round wire springs.

The TX22 Guide rod and end screw are each machined from stainless steel.  The proprietary buffer is a tough, shock resistant polymer.

The spring is precision ground on the end that engages the slide so it is very flat to prevent any undue wear on the TX22’s aluminum slide.  The Lakeline LLC recoil assembly, when compressed to solid height, is the same as the factory specification to prevent damage from frame and slide contact during firing.  Others are not so carefully designed.

Sold in the Continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico only.

    A huge improvement over the factory unit which is polymer. The factory spring has a step up that cuts into the front of the aluminum slide, which over time will destroy it.

    Lakeline LLC did this right. Buy with confidence. Thanks

    Bought a new TX22, and immediately dropped in my new Lakeline stainless recoil spring. The pistol ran like a top!!! All in all , a very exhilarating experience!! A MUST upgrade for your Pistol. Kudos to Lakeline!!

    This works great. I had an issue trying to get a comp to work. (I know, it’s only a 22, I shoot a speed match with it.) To give it a fair test, I took the comp off before testing. It is smoother now than with the comp, I won’t even bother putting that back on. Now, it even feeds Remington Golden Bullets. I used to use those for malfunction drills. Ran a variety of ammo through it, all were flawless (finally), it is like shooting a new gun. Great job Lakeline! I will be recommending this a lot to friends with the TX22.

    First I added the red dot plate with the ADE rd3-013, then the tall front sight. that setup made my TX22 a force to be reckoned with. However, the added weight on the slide forced me to shoot CCI mini mags only, all the cheap stuff would short cycle and jam. Installed the recoil spring hoping for a miracle, first couple shots worried me, even the CCI jamed a couple times with the first mag. Then it got better with the second, and the third. After about 100 rounds without issue I switched to value box federal, then winchester M mag, and finally 500 rounds or Remington. less than 10 issues in 1000 rounds of the cheapest stuff I can find. I think i got my miracle. Warning, stay away from the other Stainless steel guide rod out there, it didn’t work for me and they deleted my rather than have a negative post.

    Range Report
    Just came back from testing Lakeline’s SS guide rod for the TX 22. Very satisfied. Never had any issues from this pistol from the start. Zero. Always test fire after installation of parts which could impact the operation. Fired two mags of three different cheap ammo. Federal, Winchester, Remington . Again, zero failures. Tactile feedback to me was excellent. Heavier spring tension. Good lock up. Near silent action. Very well built and stout. Highly recommend for those wishing to improve reliability and value to your firearm. Kudos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    300 rds through my tx22 after installing the stainless guide rod and it ran perfect,very happy with it.

    Ran 200 rounds through with the new spring and rod installed and zero failures. Pistol felt smoother as well. Between this recoil spring and rod and the new Lakeline Fiber Optic sights, it turned a great.22 into a fantastic .22!! Customer service is great also!

    Great to have a company making a quality item, my order was shipped the same day and I received it 3 days later. As far as the item ordered I could not be happier (200) rounds and no malfunctions. I will be spreading the word with all I shoot with.

    I can’t believe what a difference this made. My slide felt rough and dragging when I racked it, and this made it feel super smooth and should be easier on the front of the slide where they are known to crack. Worth every penny.

    Bought a new TX22 and before even shooting it after a quick Google search of its weaknesses and seen the damage that eventually occurs using the oem part.Also have lakeline guiderod setups in a few of my pistols Ruger SR45,SR9,G2C,G3,and now the TX22.These should be being used in any pistol they offer it for from the factory im personally not a fan of plastic in my guns internals and these are extremely nice,easy to clean being stainless steel, and they offer a huge improvement over the flimsy plastic stuff they use OEM to keep costs down.If they offer one for a gun I have it will have one of the LakeLine setups in it before I even go out and shoot it.

    Showed up in the mail so I oil it up and throw it in. At first I thought it felt like it took a little more weight to cycle the weapon and I was worried if it would run as reliably. Well I took the TX22 to the range today and it ran like a champ. Had an FTF at the end of my session of about 150 rounds that I’m not sure how I caused and ruined the round. Had 1 primer fail to ignite when struck, which isn’t the gun. But I probably went through about 150rds of 40gr mini mags and Winch SuperX without issue. That works for me.

    Hi. I have both the regular TX22 and the TX22 Competition. I’ve read lots of horror stories about slide breakage on the standard model. I checked the slide on mine and the Taurus recoil spring (and it’s jagged edge) was starting to eat into the slide.
    I could easily machine a small Delrin washer to fit between the slide and the spring, but purchased this recoil assembly just for insurance.
    Excellent quality, and super easy to install.

    BTW, looking at the standard slide construction, this “loop” that breaks off sure looks flimsy. The slide on the Competition is completely different and looks an order of magnitude stronger.

    be safe!
