Taurus PT22 extended cap magazine?

is there such thing as a high(er) cap mag for the PT22 (PT22 PLY, strictly speaking, but I have learned the mags are interchangeable, anyway).

Since the standard mag features a floor plate with an extended finger rest, it shouldn't be too much of a problem to design a +2 plate all the same...

Keep in mind that it's inherently difficult to stack rimmed .22LR cartridges in a pistol magazine with straight walls. The lower cartridges must be angled progressively more steeply, which makes proper feeding more difficult as capacity increases.

IOW for this idea to work, it may take more than just a different floor plate and a longer spring.

true, yet 10rds is quite standard for most .22lr pistols. Glock conversions make it t even 15 rds.!
