    Size wise it feels fine to me, but I have added a red dot sight and a light on mine. I don't know exactly how much weight I've added with all that but it feels fine. I am hoping that this extra weight helps tame down any recoil that would prevent my wife from shooting it. It's a breeze to shot now. I'll weight it when I get home tonight.

    What exactly about it don't you like??

    There is nothing that I don't like! I just want to add some weight to make it more comparable to my Canik SC. Tx is coming in at 17 oz. and I would like to add about 5-10 oz. bringing it closer.

    Mine is fine just the way it came out of the box---everyone is different.
    My TX has become my go to .22 pistol for just plain old fun shooting.
    Bam Bam has a good idea---don't know if it would suit your situation,
    might be worth a try.

    Ok, I finally was able to break away and got to my shop and check my TX22's weight. I took pics of both loaded and unloaded for comparison. 1lb 8.2 ozs is lighter than I thought it would be. To me this pistol is still very light, but such fun to shoot. One of my favorites.

    Tandem Kross “Wingman” mag bumpers will bring the round count up to 21, which will add a little weight. I imagine you could modify it to stay at 16 in the mag body and add some lead shot to the bumper for another ounce or two. I get it if you’re using it for a trainer.

    Has anyone tried tungsten putty?
    Sounds like a plan. And maybe a big ugly heavy 1/2x28 muzzle device if your barrel has the thread adapter? That’s where I’d want some weight. You can get some cheap in the $teens on CDNN and a few discount AR sites. The linear comps are pretty solid. And there are some shorty comps too.

    I tried one of those fake suppressors figuring the added muzzle weight would help keep on target easier but it threw my shots off and made my groups horribly wide. Got rid of that thing. I would hang a big heavy light on it and call it good, that way there's something useful on it besides just a chunk of weight.

    Yeah, I wouldn’t want anything that long on the barrel for sure. Plenty of real estate regardless.
