    This gun is very poorly made useing different brands of ammo you cannot find one that this gun likes you will adverage 1 or 2 stove pipes per magazine.
    The magazine release is hard to push in and even oiling it doesnt help.
    Save your money and buy a Ruger Mark 111

          Comments about Smith & Wesson Smith & Wesson® Model 22A Handgun:

          Bought 7" barrel model first day GM store opened in town. Shot only ~50 rounds so far, flawless, with Remington bulk that's 20+ yrs old. Some sight adjustment & surprised at accuracy, gun particularly but myself as well. (I bowhunt almost exclusively so have shot guns little last several years, and handguns even less.)

          After reading dozens of reviews on this site & others - generally positive but enough negative to cause doubt - I was apprehensive about S&W and seriously considered Ruger & Browning. Went with 22A anyway. VERY pleased.

          Only issue is slide really difficult to pull. Assume it will improve with break-in. Overall, EXCELLENT. Very enthused about plinking & squirrel hunting.

            I use it for the range, teaching the wife and kids to shoot. The gun is nice. I put 120 rounds through it for the first time today...not one issue. Very accurate and for the price you can't beat it.

              Comments about Smith & Wesson Smith & Wesson® Model 22A Handgun:

              Bought this handgun a couple months ago. I've put almost 1000 rounds through it and only had 2 misfires. It was the ammo, not the gun.
              It feels great in my hand and only took a few minutes to get it sighted in, it wasn't off by much.
              I got it on a recommendation from a buddy of mine who has had one for quite a while. He says it will shoot whatever ammo he puts through it. So far, mins does too.
              LOVE this piece!

                • Q:

                  Re this S & W 22LR handgun w/10-shot magazine --- Would this be an effective gun for personal - family home protection? The price is right and the ammo for target practice would be affordable and my wife could handle it too. It looks like a friendly gun we would like --- if it also will do the job.

                    22's are more for target shooting not personal protection. A 9mm is probably the smallest size effective for home defense. I would recommend a .45

                  • A:

                    .22 is way to small. For personal or home protection my advice is look at what calibers police use. .38 .40 .45 .9mm This would be my advice for home defense that or a small shotgun .410 or 20 ga. Most brands make a home defender model that has a pistol grip and short barrel. My grandma carried a 32 special around for years for home and personal pertection. so if you want something your wife would be ok with handeling a 32 would stop almost anyone

                  • A:

                    The first rule of a gun fight is bring a gun. A 22 is better than a zero. A 22 will penetrate the front of the skull but probably not the rear, and then the bullet will bounce around scrambling the victims gray matter.

                    If you can only afford one gun, and can not afford to shoot it enough because the cost of ammunition is too high, then its better to get something you can become proficient with. I can buy 550 rounds of ammo for a 22lr for $16 at walmart.

                    I own this weapon, and while its no ones first choice for defense, it is accurate enough that I can get three bullets into the same quarter sized area in about 3 seconds at 10 yards or so. If those three are in your head, game over, good bye, thanks for playing.

                    I would rather be shot at by at .45 than hit with a .22

                  • A:

                    Many SF units around the world are armed with .22 caliber handguns...though, most of us are not Special Forces, and our targets will reflect that. As for cheap target practice, this would be excellent, but, unless you shoot like one of the characters from "The Unit" you may want to upgrade to a 9mm, or a tactical-style shotgun. That all being said, I had an unfortunate accident involving a .22 round...I have a metal rod in my foot, replacing the inch or so of missing bone, they hurt, and can be deadly, but there is no real man-stopping power.
