Designed as a dedicated .22 LR, the M&P22 pistol has the look, feel, and familiar operating features of the trusted M&P series of centerfire pistols in a weapon ideally suited for training or simple shooting enjoyment. The improved trigger weight and feel, and unique takedown method set the M&P apart from other modern lightweight pistols. The M&P is made out of Zytel polymer reinforced with a stainless steel chassis and treated with Smith & Wesson's proprietary Melonite nitriding process that produces a matte gray-colored, non-glare surface with a 68 Rockwell C surface hardness rating. Its very low slide profile holds the barrel axis close to the shooter's hand and makes the M&P more comfortable to shoot by reducing muzzle rise and allowing for faster aim recovery in rapid shooting sequence. This double-action-only pistol features fixed 3-dot sights, an ambidextrous thumb safety, and a 10-round magazine. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in excellent condition.
