The K22 TS8, TS standing for Target Sport, is Grand Power’s answer to suggestions of long range rimfire shooters maintaining many of the benefits Grand Power rimfire pistols have to offer. The K22 TS is specifically designed and manufactured to accommodate shooters needs as well as local legislation. The long barrel provides for excellent accuracy and is accompanied with fully adjustable micrometric type rear sight.
If you’re not familiar with Grand Power one of the things that makes them different is the rotating barrel. The real benefit of the rotating barrel is the absence of the lock-up clunk – tilting barrels require right-angle pieces of steel to pass over one another. This increases perceived recoil with abrupt shifts in weight and spikes in linear energy transfer. That simply doesn’t happen with a rotating barrel in the Grand Power models.
The crisp SA/DA trigger is famous for short reset and further enhances accuracy of follow-up shots. Unique slide design makes it light, even though it is made from a single piece of steel, providing great reliability as well as long life. Generous chamber access space allows easy manipulation, for example in case of ammo malfunction. To further increase durability of K22 TS, it is built from same parts as Grand Power’s larger caliber pistols, such as steel insert and Mk12 polymer frame.
For owners of other Grand Power pistols, full size controls with identical layout will be beneficial, making the K22 TS also great training tool. The K22 TS can also be fitted with many parts used to customize your larger caliber Grand Power pistols.
This model features an accessory rail for your light, laser or other accessories, an interchangeable backstrap covers lanyard hole and enlarged sport safety levers that provide rest for your thumb and can be replaced by lower profile ones.
The K22 TS8 possesses a sturdy polymer grip with an internal steel insert that is considered actual frame, manufactured by milling and drilling from single piece of high-quality steel. Excellent quality is maintained also with other parts, such as slide machined from single piece of steel and a massive bull barrel. All parts are manufactured with a state-of-the-art technology using only top-notch materials. To fulfill the needs and desires of all users, fully ambidextrous controls are present and four interchangeable backstraps are available. To add to it impressive list of features the K22 TS8 can be field stripped without any tools.
No matter if you decide to use the K22 TS8 for training, as a first gun, to teach somebody else or as a primary carry gun for those who may find stronger caliber a little too much, the K22 TS8 will satisfy your needs.
