I miss my Buck Mark.

Based on the Bud's picture, it sure as heck looks like a "real" M&P. The aluminum slide is disappointing, but it seems all of the double action .22s have them.



After trying a Sig Mosquito and a ISSC M22 (.22 Glock 19 clone), I recently bought a gsg 1911, and I like it VERY much. Stone reliable and very accurate, with a great trigger. And being a 1911 clone, it points like a M&P.

I wonder if the whole pistol is made by Walther or just the slide and barrel. I agree with most I wish it was made in house by S&W then I would get one. I will probably skip on this one. I guess S&W has got to keep the lesser of the 2 happy with there relationship/partnership.

What's wrong with the aluminum slide? I'm assuming even with a soft recoil spring having a steel slide might still be too heavy to be able to cycle another roung.

Hmmm... like others have expressed... we'll wait and see on this one. The Walther P22 isn't the most reliable and bombproof .22LR pistol out there, so if this is indeed engineered by Walther and not S&W, then waiting and seeing how they turn out might be wise.



On the other hand, the S&W 15-22 is one heckuva well-done .22 rifle, even though it uses a lot of polymer. It had early problems, but S&W has tweaked and re-engineered the gun to iron almost everything out in the latest revisions. It is perhaps the most faithful .22LR platform for the AR-15 out there in terms of function compared to its big sibling.



April 2011 sounds so far away!

And made by S&W. I have nothing against polymer, just don't like the idea of a Wather made M&P clone.

1. "We should have come out with this years ago".



2. "We should be making this ourselves".


Dangit. I bought a P22 a couple years ago because they weren't making one. Bummer. I expect the value of my p22 is going to go down even more once this thing is out.

i dont know, but for what it is i think i will definitely buy one. i mean it cant be any worse than the ISSC thing. yes the p22 had issues but they were fixable. if there is no news of a conversion by the time this comes out, i will for sure buy one of these

I'm a bit partial to my old Olympic Grade High Standard Victor 22LR with the vented rib and weighted barrell. Had it a looooong time and it is a great shooter. Can't argue about the Browning, those are fun shooters too.

I second that.



I have been wondering whether an M&P gas blow-back air-soft or .177 pellet gun would come out before a .22LR M&P. Either remains to be seen.


I've been wondering about that M&P gas blow-back air-soft too. Still the old hide and watch...

Just got off the phone with phone with Smith & Wesson customer service. The M&P 22LR model # 122000 is a real product and they expect a release date of February 2011. Apparently they released the information to some of their high volume dealers as sort of a market test to gauge the production level prior to putting them on the market.
