Smith & Wesson M&P 22 222000
The Smith & Wesson M&P 22 is sure to be a popular addition to the M&P line of semi-auto pistols. Designed as a dedicated .22LR, the M&P22 pistol combines the look, feel and familiar operating features of the trusted M&P full size series of centerfire pistols.
You can see in the photo below the S&W M&P22
The 222000 M&P22 is the same size and feel of the 9mm, .357 sig and 40 S&W, so the holsters you sue with those pistols will work with the 22lr M&P. The relatively low cost of the 22 long rifle ammo, using this pistol for training and it will just about pay for itself in a few trips to the range. Because of the 22lr, this pistol is also much easier to shoot during long trips to the range.
You can see in the photo below the thumb safety and slide stop are ambidextrous. If you are a lefty, you can swap the magazine release to the other side too.
You can see in the photo below the three spot picatinny rail section. Great for mounting lights or lasers on. If you run a light or laser on your full size M&P you can easily move them over to your M&P 22 when training to get more familiar with your setup.
In the photo below you can see the sights the Smith & Wesson M&P 22 ships with. It has a white front dot sight. The rear sight is similar to those found on a standard full size M&P pistol, minus the two white dots on the rear sight. The rear sight on the M&P22 is blacked out.
