    Has anyone heard any news about when this pistol is coming out? I see it on their website, but there isn't any date or news.

    Thanks,
    Navarre

    New S&W M&P 22

    Talked to Customer Service three times in the last two weeks. I got "no idea","hopefully in a couple of months" and "mid to end of April".
    Your guess is as good as mine but I hope it's soon. I also hope it doesn't have any issues.

    "Soon" is all I've heard--always a month or two away. :rolleyes: Man, the pictures on S&W's website make it look really bad :eek:, and not much like a real M&P (although they're kind of marketing or positioning it as part of the series nevertheless). My Airsoft M&P looks more realistic! Fortunately, the finished product will look a lot better than that. Unfortunately, it's still not an M&P, just a reasonable lookalike. Personally, I'd rather have a .22 LR conversion kit than a Walther P22 that has undergone plastic surgery. ;)

    By the way, there seems to be plenty of interest in the following thread on the M&P Forum:

    I'd much rather have a .22lr conversion upper too. It just doesn't seem right to have a .22lr that is just styled to look like a M&P

    I too think that the way to go would be for the 22lr conversion, but I don't think we will see that now that they are coming out with the M&P 22. I was just curious because I own 2 M&P 9c's (one was a gift) and the 45c and they are both outstanding weapons.

    I'm holding out hope that a manufacturer of M&P aftermarket parts comes out with a .22lr conversion kit. I believe the complicated part is the extractor and the initial cost

    More junk from Walther. The M&P22 is going to be hammer fired not striker fired. Think Walther P22 in M&P clothes.
