First Look: Smith & Wesson M&P22 Compact

SmitM&P22h & Wesson has launched the M&P22 Compact, its newest handgun in the M&P line.

Slightly scaled down from the full-size M&P centerfire pistol, the M&P22 Compact is a single-action, internal hammer-fired handgun manufactured entirely in the U.S. by Smith & Wesson. As a huge bonus, those who purchase an M&P22 Compact between now and December 1, 2014, will also receive a promotional coupon for 222 rounds of .22LR ammunition from Winchester.

The M&P22 has a 10-round capacity (shipped with two magazines), ambidextrous thumb safety, reversible magazine catch and adjustable white dot sights. It also features a Picatinny rail for lights and lasers, threaded barrel for a suppressor and a magazine safety.

The M&P22 Compact comes with a 3.6-inch barrel and is available at an MSRP of $389.
