    Rock Island Armory - 22 TCM

    The 22 TCM is the latest 1911 based development in our Rock Island Line. Scheduled foran early summer release the 22 TCM (Tuason Craig Micromag) is an all new proprietary cartridge and pistol platform designed to bring Red Hot performance the 1911 world!

    Imagine firing a 40dr. bullet at over 2000 feet per second out of a 1911 pistol… then you will have an idea of just how much fun this new pistol can be!

    Designed by renowned gun maker Fred Craig for Rock Island, the 22 TCM Pistold delivers potent 19 rounds of firepower, and a blistering 400 foot pounds of energy with every shot…. And it does this with a 1//4th the recoil of a 45ACP!

    To make it even more irresistible…. We are offering the new TCM pistols as a combo kit with a 9mm barrel conversion kit and adjustable Novak style sights!

    So if you are looking for the hottest new 1911 pistol this summer…. Look no further…. Rock Island Armory has you covered!

    Depending on bullet construction, twist and a host of other factors...

    This could really do well, or fail miserably.

    (Is someone gonna do a Glock barrel for this round? Because that would really help it take off.)

    I'd like to see Glock offer a pistol in this chambering.

    (I'll add that to my pie-in-the-sky Glock wish list along with a carbine and single-stack pocket nine.)

    Interesting. I wonder if it has the same breech peening issues that the .224 Boz (a 10mm case necked down to .224) had.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    Should be interesting, reminds me of the 256 Win Mag, great little round but never really caught on.

    It is definitely an interesting concept.

    Similar idea to the FN 5.7mm?
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    I had the chance to shoot a FN 5.7mm. Really liked it. I don't know how it does as a combat/self-defense round, but it was fun to shoot.

    It would have been better if it was a .22 necked down from a 10MM.

    Everyone knows that the 9mm isnt even in the same league as a 10MM and it would have been one smokin round. You might have had .223 performance out of a handgun, or close to it anyways.

    I am guessing this is the same as Fred Craig's 22 MicroMag. I emailed him back in November 2010 and asked him about his gun and he told me that the ammo this uses is the necked down 9mm using 40gr. Back then he also told me that the price of his gun would be approx. $979 and that for an extra $150 more you can purchase 9mm barrel for it. Also that he was teaming up with Armscor in building this gun and the ammo. I wonder if he is just going through Armscor now which is really Rock Island Armory ??? Here is his website. God Bless
