M&P22c?

#1

Post by GunSmoke » March 14th, 2019, 11:53 am

Hey guys, anyone have any experience with the M&P 22 compact? I was considering picking one up while PSA has them on sale as an alternative to all my Ruger 22s. I'd appreciate any thoughts feedback or recommendations from those who have one of these or have shot one.

As a side note, I don't have any other M&P pistols, so there is no trainer value in this for me. Thanks in advance for your feedback.

I think mine is the full sized version but I like it. Trigger pull is long but decent.
I prefer the Ruger 22/45 Lite with a trigger kit but do enjoy the M&P.

I hear you on that. I have a 22/45 lite with a volquartsen trigger kit as well. Great shooter. However, I more recently picked up a Pac light upper, and now my factory Ruger Lite upper feels like an overweight Pig by comparison.

I think I'll give the M&P a try just for something different. Thanks for your feedback.

I have a 22c. I use it as a trainer for the 9mm shield. I like it and it's cheaper to practice with than the 9.

I have a M&P 22c, I use it as a critter gun.
It is easy to clean and the triggers are not horrible. Mine is connected to a sparrow most of the time, no issues with that combination as long as you keep it clean.

My biggest complaint with them is they ALL have a mag disconnect and thumb safety (damn lawyers). The mag disconnect can be removed very easily, the thumb safety leaves holes as they do not make plugs for that small gun. Other than those two things they are good little guns.

As a side note, I have let about a half dozen kids (pre teen) shoot it with zero issues.

Disregard. Looks like all of his links are dead. Bummer, because it looks like what you were looking for to remove the safety lever.
