I agree the .22LR Tracker has some weight to it, real barrel heavy with a full underlug. Local shop has a 6" Tracker. Curious what others have to say. I'd imagine the M94 would be less expensive?

Tarus Tracker .22 Rimfire

Hey Steve, I tried one out and put about 500 rounds thru it to see if it would loosen up, but.....
The Tarus Tracker is too HEAVY and has an impossible & incurable double action pull! WHen using single action it has decent trigger let-off and is accurate. Go with a S&W Model 17 or find an old Colt Diamondback.

I love my 22 Taurus Tracker! I agree its not a good backup 22 on account of being so heavy, but when out plinking or hunting its my favorite pistol. I got mine used at a gun shop and the trigger pull (both double and single action) is excellent.

If a light gun is what you want I say go with the Ruger SP 101 in 22LR. It has a four inch barrel and you can't go wrong with a Ruger.

Go with the Tracker.

Just got the 22 Magnum.....

AND LOVE IT!!

I want to get it scoped to see exactly what it can do.

As for the trigger. Most doubles do have a heavy trigger. Wolf I believe makes the replacement springs for them.

The Smith is another choice. But I lost all interest with the Clinton years and now the quality issues that they seem to have. The Taurus was $300 less and just fit me better.

The weight was not an issue as I am used to a set of T/C's that are a good bit heavier scoped.

Model 94

Hello....

As I mentioned over in another post, I've been very happy with my Model 94 Taurus.

I've had it for a couple years now I guess and have put many, many rounds through it without a hitch.

I have the 4" blued version in .22LR, and for a plinker, it has been good to me. :t

Yes, sort of. Although Smith didn't make

a 9-shot.:) Rossi has made several J-frame size, 6-shot .22s. My first try was with a stainless one and I was disappointed with its accuracy. My next was a blued-one, and I'm pleased. Smith never did make their kit-guns with a true 3" barrel, and that's what 'balances' the best on that frame size, IMO.

.22 Tracker springs

As for the trigger. Most doubles do have a heavy trigger. Wolf I believe makes the replacement springs for them.
Yes, Wolff does have a spring kit. The kit, with three various weight hammer springs, and three various weight trigger springs, sells for (I believe) $10.50. I bought the kit and installed it in my .45ACP Tracker. I'm certainly no expert, and I had no problem installing it. What it does for the double action pull was amazing.

As for the weight of the Tracker, yes it is heavy. But it is well balanced and "points" great. I love my .45ACP, and can't wait to get a .22lr version!!!
