Smith & Wesson’s newest pistol, the M&P-22 is a Walther design that exactly matches the ergonomics of the 9mm or .40 S&W M&P pistol. The M&P-22 comes with 10 or 12 round single stack magazines and is equipped from the factory with a frame-mounted thumb safety.
It also features an ambidextrous/reversible magazine catch and a Picatinny rail.
Actual manufacturing of the pistol is outsourced to Umarex, but there is no word yet on whether the firearm is constructed of high strength steel or a less expensive zinc alloy.
MSRP is expected to be around $450, although actual retail price will likely be below $400.

I have purchased this gun for my wife and after her class we just past the 500 rounds mark. It feels like a 9 MM and looks like a 9 MM. I purchased some HV hot rounds and it loves them and is loud like a 9 MM. It shoots CCI, Augila, and Remmingtons without issues. Only issue I have had is it does not like Winchester Wilcats. Sure its not HV’s but CCI regulars has no issues and other rounds just this one.
