Taurus PT22 feeding problem

As the title says my PT22 is not feeding well. I really like this little gun but I'm not nuts about the feeding problem. I bought this little pistol new and shot a couple mags through it no problem. Then it sat for awhile. A few weeks ago I got it back out, lubed it up and went out back to shoot it. It shot one mag clean and then would not feed well. I have always used CCI Stingers or Mini Mags. I'm no gunsmith so I ask you, is there something I can do or should I just send it in to Taurus? They have pretty good service, I think. Thanks in advance for your input.

My PT22 (15+ year sold) has NEVER been able to use HP ammo.

Try shooting solid point only. . .

(Assuming that works)
After 500 rounds of solid points, try the HP ammo again.

Problems with most 22lr auto pistols can be traced to the ammo..
CCI Minimag seems to be what most folks use to rule out problems with thier pistols..
My Favorite range ammo is Federal 550 Value Packs that I score at Wal-Mart..
It's Copper washed works well in my Rugers & Jennings J-22 "POP GUN" but it's Hollow Point & can cause problems in some pistols..
Good Luck!!

I went out back yesterday evening and took CCI minimag rd nose, Federal classic rd nose, and Remington golden bullets hp. I ran a bore snake through it as soon as got out back. First I shot the Federals and they fed real well. 3 mags with no incidence. Ran the bore snake through her a couple times and loaded the CCI. On the 6th shot it failed to eject and jammed open. With a little flick of the finger it popped out and fed the other bullet. Finished the mag and ran another. Another FTE about half way through that mag. Same solution. The last mag shot okay. Ran the snake through it again and loaded the Remingtons HPs. Thought they might give me trouble but they cycled great. After that I shot several more mags of each. The Federal ran good except for a couple fail to fires. The CCI constantly was giving me trouble with failure to eject. Almost every mag. The Remington cycled flawlessy. As of now I like the Remington out of that selection.
I have a Federal 550 pack HP, A newer 100 pk of CCI rd nose and a CCI 100 pack of HP, plus more Federal classic and Remington golden bullets to experiment with. Hell this gun only had 30 shots through it till last evening.
It just needs broken in. Here's a stock pic of it. Notice the safety is off.

Sounds like your onto the cure for your pistol..
My J-22 was like that for a while & it's 25+ years old, It will now work darn near 100% with the Federal 550 Bulk Hps..
Bore snake is a great idea too..
Also try a .270 brush for cleaning the 22lr chamber..

I'll try the .270 brush. I take it the little tighter fit scrubs just a little better. I am really looking forward to some more experimenting this weekend.
I had a J-22 I bought in '83. Sweet little gun. It always did well. I sold it on a whim one gun show and have missed it every since.

when you get your gun to shoot one 50 round box of ammo without any stoppage or cleanings let me know.

ive never seen the beretta or taurus mini .22lr's do this....no extractor, and the shaped of the rimmed and rim fired cartridge doesnt help matters.

i saw a nickle plated Taurus with Pink grips, know my wife and daughter would like it, but the stiff DAO trigger and the poor track record of these guns in .22lr has kept me away from it.
