S&W M&P 22 pistol


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Have any of you shot the new S&W M&P 22 pistol. Think about buying one to shoot for practice instead of my 9mm. I like the fact that it is an exact duplicate of the full power cousin.

I'm interested also. I did hold one last week at a store and wish they had been around before I bought my Walther P22.

Well I guess I am going to have to go buy one and post a review myself. I don't need much arm twisting to buy a new gun.

We were at the club shooting this morning, and one the guys there had his out. He carries an M&P in 9mm, so he loves shooting the .22 version. It felt really nice. I wish Glock offered this option, as I love my G26. Looks like I may have to pick up a couple of M&Ps next.

Can you give a better description of the trigger? I like the M&P triggers in the full size guns. Do you know-
How does the trigger compare to a 9mm or .40 M&P?
How does it compare to a Walther P22?
I'm thinking of trading in my P22 for one of these but so far everyone has been out of stock when I go to look.

The M&P 22 trigger is different due to the fact that is hammer fired instead of striker fired. Mine is different but I would not say it sucks.

I picked up an S&W M&P 22 pistol a short while back for the wife. I really liked the fact that it was full sized versus something much smaller (like a Walther P22). It's much cheaper to shoot than my 9mm (of course), so I usually take it with me to the range on weekends.

Personally I think it's great. It's super light given it's polymer with an aluminum slide. It feels great in the hand and shoots like a dream. Beyond some dud cartridges (shooting super cheap Remington Thunderbolt) I've never had a failure to fire or any other issue for that matter.

My only gripe would be the trouble I had getting some extra mags (it only comes with 1). None of the local shops had them in stock (they reported an issue getting them from S&W). I ended up ordering them online for about $35/each + a few $ for shipping.

I'd highly recommend it.

My M&P22 had average of 10-20 FTE, FTF etc out of a box of 525 (Fed, Win). It tended to do better with CCI but still enough failures that I sent it in to S&W. It took 8 weeks to get my gun back with a missing magazine. It was a hassle to get a replacement mag. The gun was returned to me with grinding marks all over it as well as a new front site. Not sure why the site was replaced since it was accurate before I sent it. I took it out and I still had the same issues but now an added perk of having to spank the slide to get it to finish going to battery. Figured I'd try a standard 200-300 rounds to see if problem still persists. Each outting seems to be getting better, but this gun was obviously built on a Monday or a Friday or a day adjoining a holiday. The repair person was obviously incompetent and was just collecting a pay check so went crazy with a debur tool just to finish getting the widget out the door. You take your chances when you buy a gun. Very little ethics on quality from any of them. They should of sent me a repaired gun that worked (the gun was only a month old when returned to them for repair). I think if the problem doesn't go away, I will ping pong them until they get it right or the gun is deburred to the size of a derringer!!!
