I have a post a 'Good job Mikexaz2323' for finding this info and posting it.



I figured it was some aftermarket people trying to pull a fast one.



Looking forward to the range report... not sure I can wait on this one. I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on upgrading my Buck Mark Standard to a Buck Mark Rosewood UDX and my Walther P22 to a GSG 1911-22.



Decisions, decisions....

I shot my GSG 1911 again last night and I like it more every time out. Very accurate, great trigger, and 100% reliable (with Blazers or Mini-Mags, at least). The finish is weak, but a CeraHide or CeraKote job would take care of that. Having said that, I will almost certainly buy one of the new M&Ps as well.

The Colt Umarex Walther AR15 style .22's are absolute abortions and should never have been made. There are Airsoft guns out there that feel better and probably shoot better than that steaming pile of crap.

....

Hopefully the pistol will work well enough to be somewhat reliable and the manufacturing and build quality will be well above the Umarex/colt piece of shit.


Which Colt M4 22 do you own, the Carbine or OPS model?

For those interested, here is the same topic being discussed on M4C, including some remarks by Grant of G&R Tactical who is a site sponsor on MP-Pistol:

This is awesome. I know that they really want to sell new guns, but I would love to just get a slide and a couple of mags.

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!


I want one!

But if it's made by Walther I'll wait until they work the bugs out.



Hopefully someone will have released a conversion kit by then so I can practice with my own trigger.

We all wanted it, but I guess we weren't specific enough and assumed it would made and produced by S&W. I am willing to give it a try, either way I am sure it will be a fantastic plinker.

An M&P .22, plastic, made/distributed by Walther. As the proud owner of a P-22 whose only regret that the $250 I spent for a new P22 would have been better spent on the used stainless single six that was sitting next to it, I'm in a real wait and see mode. Especially for one with a street price close to the real M&P's. Could be a nice addition to my .22 menagerie, but the P22 has made me a bit wary of something like this.

I'm interested -- .22LR for $0.03 per round verses 9mm for $0.20 per round. Gun pays for itself in under 2000 rounds - really alot less when you consider the .22's resale.

new info:



Two models will be introduced: one with a 10-round magazine, and a second with a 12 round magazine. Both models will have a 4.1″ barrel, and an overall length of 7.6″. Weight is 24 ounces, unloaded.



sounds like a full size to me

I do hope they used as many available M&P parts as possible. Things like locking block, sear housing block, striker assembly, trigger assembly, take down lever, mag release, slide stop, sights, magazine base pads, etc etc. I'd be great to be able to drop in a an Apex Tactical DCAEK and other niceties.



Thankfully the weight is listed the same as a full size M&P.
