The Taurus 22PLY and 25PLY in polymer frames make the already light guns into super-light guns weighing only 10.8 oz. Both models feature a blowback action and tip-up barrel design for the added convenience of not having to rack the gun before shooting. The reverse fish-scale serrations on the slide add to the sleek look of the gun. The extended magazine base and full body contouring provides a larger, improved and more comfortable grip. The trigger guard is designed for added finger purchases. The magazine release is conveniently located on the trigger guard for quick changes. Taurus is constantly mindful of safety and has incorporated the magazine disconnect and a manual safety on the 22PLY and 25PLY.

Take note that the first reviews are several years old. I bought mine June 2020. After firing the first shot (loaded into the tip up barrel), the second shot (the top cartridge of eight in the factory magazine) failed to feed with three different brands of ammunition. I experienced the exact same problem with two additional new factory magazines. Then I tried loading the magazines with only 7 rounds, and the same problem occurred with all 3 magazines and kinds of ammunition. As long as I loaded no more than six rounds in a magazine, everything worked as it should. If more than 6 rounds are loaded in the magazine, the 7th and 8th bullets point into the front of the magazine body, instead of tilting the cartridge toward the chamber, so the magazine itself will captures the first two of eight rounds. The problem disappears once there are six or less rounds in the magazine, wherein the follower positions the rounds as it should. Impact won’t let you return firearms, so I called Taurus, and explained the problem. First, the representative told me that I needed to fire 200 or 300 rounds to break in the pistol. When I explained that might take years, if I tried to break in the gun with full magazines, she offered that I could send it in for warranty work, but warned me that the turnaround was running 12 weeks. When I reviewed all the steps I’d taken above across three magazines and brands of ammunition to illustrate that it was a magazine problem, she offered to send me one replacement factory magazine, but noted that they were not currently available. I looked online for ideas and solutions and found that many others have had similar problems with these magazines. My solution was to disassemble the magazines and grind down (and, yes, polish) the front of the magazine body until it was just below the tip of the top round in a full magazine of eight. This solved the problem for two of the three kinds of ammunition in all three magazines, and the pistol will now fire full magazines loaded with CCI minimag round nose and hollow point ammunition. Solving the problem was an interesting exercise, and I do like the gun, but I’ll never buy a Taurus product again. Oh, and the magazines are still unavailable.
I now have three concealed carry weapons A Taurus 357 five shot, a Smith and Wesson 380 Bodyguard and now the Taurus PLY 22. Use Stinger ammo in it and while the bullet is small and fly's in the face of what is recommended for self defense it is very effective the fun to my surprise is accurate, at the distance that it was designed for same as the Bodyguard these are for close up encounters, so I p[ick the weapon for were I am going at the time and the level of threat in the area I do better in accuracy with the 22 than the 380.
I know what you're thinking. This here's a .22 LR, the most anemic handgun cartridge in the world. So I'm just going to have to shoot you 9 times in the head. Dirty Harry jokes aside, if you carry a pistol for self-defense, it's all about how well you can shoot it and how convenient and unobtrusive it is to carry. And to all those people who think a .22 is not an effective round, there are plenty of Mob hit men and intelligence operatives who would disagree with you. Shot placement is everything, and it's especially easy to improve your shot placement if you can shoot a lot, without it costing you an arm and a leg, and without getting carpal tunnel for your trouble. This little pistol is light, reliable, accurate, and easy to carry. It works for me.
The PLY has replaced daily pocket carry for me, my wife and daughter. Our Glocks, Ruger and S and W compacts ride with us and guard the house but we have all come to prefer the PLY for reliable, user friendly carry. Wife, Cindy, has a nice .380 Taurus now used mostly to guard the cats while watching T.V. We each have some variety of NAA mini just because they are fun and cheap to shoot and fit where not much else will. Even so, the flip top PLY in .22 with nine rounds and an easy to operate safety remains the favorite for each of us. Our similar Berettas in .22 and .32 are clunky by comparison and less fun to go to range with. Several of my old Army buddies have followed suit with the PLY in .22 for themselves and for their significant others.
