I've never owned a 1022 and I've got the itch real bad. I've been looking around and I really like the T model as well as the deluxe( I'm a fool for walnut). The T has the heavy barrel I like and it's 20 inches long which I also like better but that walnut is screaming " pick me". I really think what ever follows me home will stay stock because thats the way I am (non tinkerer). I'm really frustrated. Is the heavy, longer barrel on the T more accurate usually or is it just looks. Maybe I'm just starting another bad habit that will drive me and the wife crazy and hurry us up to the poor house. GREAT SITE!
