    I'm looking at the sw mp .22lr handgun and am wondering if any of you guys have experience with it and your thoughts towards the gun.

    I have one. It's lots of fun to shoot and eats just about everything I've fed it. I also like that it a threaded barrel. What I don't like; that it came with only 1 mag and additional mags are hard to find and are expensive.

    Bought one a month or two ago, haven't made it to the range with it yet though. When I bought it they (Fishermans) had mags in stock so I bought an extra. Wish I had gotten a couple more though.

    For the $400 price, and having fired both, I prefer the Beretta ARX 160.

    Fred Meyer 20 bucks each or Plinker Tactical 35 rounds for 35.
    I have one and it is alot of fun to shoot recoil is less than a 10/22. They are pretty accurate i put a red dot on mine and feeds and shoots any ammo i have put in it.

    Ive had mine for 2 years or so and love it. Perfect trainer for your AR (set mine up to match), good cheap plinking and shoots rimfire steel matches like a champ. Everyone who shoots mine wants one asap. Be sure not to over pay. I have seen a few priced a little too high lately.

    Are you asking about the S&W M&P 15 .22 or the M&P .22 pistol? Either way I own both and they both shoot great! The only issue I've had is a failed 15 .22 mag that's being replaced. You can't go wrong with these if you get either for a decent price.

    Did the OP specify pistol or rifle? You guys seem to be talking about both and the difference is like apples and uranium.

    I found a trick on youtube to get around the mag shortage/cost issue last year/earlier this year. The 10 rounders were setup such that all you had to do was take the mag apart like you were cleaning it and take out the spacer they put in to prevent the spring from compressing for 12 rounds. In 30 seconds or less you had a 12 round mag. There are probably some youtube videos still out there showing how its done.

    However, I've read that S&W redesigned the 10 round mags recently to prevent it but I've not confirmed it.

    I've had mine for a year and half and it's been great and reliable. Midway has had factory mags in stock for 16.99 for over a month now.


    Edit: should of specified, I am speaking about the rifle.

    Agreed. I took it that the OP was asking about the pistol. MP 22 = pistol. MP 15-22 = rifle. That's how I see it. I was referring to the pistol.

    love mine, functions perfect with everything I've shot through it. I have two Plinker 35 rounds mags that work flawlessly too.
