Smith & Wesson Corp. announced today that it has added a new model to the company's flagship line of M&P polymer pistols with the introduction of the M&P .22 Compact. Engineered to professional standards, the new tactical rimfire pistol incorporates a variety of features inherent to the design of the full size M&P centerfire pistol in a new, smaller scale version. Manufactured entirely in the United States by Smith & Wesson, the .22 LR pistol provides shooting enthusiasts with M&P accuracy and reliability in a new fun-to-shoot, compact profile. To round out the shooting experience, from now through December 31, 2014, Smith & Wesson will ship 222 rounds of Winchester .22 LR ammunition to each M&P .22 Compact consumer who redeems the promotional coupon.

James Debney, President and CEO of Smith & Wesson, said, "The new M&P .22 Compact gives consumers the opportunity to own and experience a unique tactical sporting pistol engineered with premium features that have made the M&P line of handguns a leading standard in the shooting sports. Target shooters, recreational shooting enthusiasts or anyone looking to add more excitement to their shooting experience can now enjoy a compact .22 LR semi-automatic pistol with all the adaptability and versatility that are synonymous with the M&P brand."

Designed to be 15 percent smaller than the full-size M&P 9/40, the new M&P .22 Compact is lightweight, comfortable in the hand and conveniently carried. Like its centerfire sibling, the M&P .22 Compact accommodates the needs of both left- and right-handed shooters with its ambidextrous manual safety and reversible magazine release. Its Picatinny-style accessory rail underneath the barrel easily accommodates after-market lights and laser sights when using in various light conditions and sporting activities. This pistol is suppressor friendly and is standard with a 3/8 x 24-inch threaded barrel with muzzle cap for easy accessorizing. Shooters of all experience levels will appreciate the crisp, 5.8-pound trigger pull with reset which makes shooting the M&P .22 Compact easy and fun.
