Gaining proficiency shooting a pistol takes practice, and lots of it. The pistol comprises the most difficult firearm of all to master. So for the shooters training to gain those next few percentage points in match scores, success comes after a pile of brass. Top competitors shooting tens of thousands of rounds each year. To help mitigate the costs of training, rimfire trainers remain a go-to alternative. The Tanfoglio Force 22 TB from Italian Firearms Group offers up a new entry into the field.
Tanfoglio Force 22 TB
The full-size pistol matches up well to the extensive line of competition pistols in Tagfoglio’s lineup. Whether plinking for fun or serious high-volume training, the Force 22 TB brings a lot of gun for the money. The two-tone Blue Cerakote slide provides a striking package against the pistols’ black poly frame.
The Force 22 TB comes with a threaded barrel. It features a polymer frame and aluminum slide. Operating on a blowback system, the pistol utilizes a fixed barrel. The barrel comes CNC machined from chrome molybdenum steel. A double/single-action trigger system mirrors those found on the company’s competition variants. The magazine catch reverses for left-handed shooters, and pistol includes an ambidextrous safety and fully adjustable rear sight.
The cost of 9mm ammo will always remain higher than .22 LR. And finding it sometimes brings even greater challenges. To ensure there’s no lost training time, smart competition shooters keep a few rimfire trainers and .22 LR ammo ready to go. For those looking to increase their range time on a budget, the Tanfoglio Force 22 TB is worth a look.
The Force 22 TB retails for $575. For even more info, please visit italianfirearmsgroup.com.
