I wanted a .22 pistol to get some trigger time without sending too much money down range in larger calibres. I looked at the Browning Buckmark and this Smith and Wesson 22a. I fired a couple hundred rounds through each pistol. They both felt very good in my hands. I have average size hands for an adult male. After shooting both I went with the Smith and Wesson over the Browning basically for the extreme price difference. Here's what I liked and what I didn't about the S&W.
I liked the price obviously. This isn't some overseas, no name company selling this pistol for a low price. It's a S&W at a very good price.
I liked the reliablity. Between the initial comparison and my range time after purchase I have about 500 rounds through mine. I have not had a single Fail To Eject. I had a Fail To Feed problem initially because the magazines were not fully seating. You have to give them a bump to make sure they are seated. After that, not one single Fail To Feed. A few FTF but that's ammo, not the pistol. I was shooting Winchester for all of this.
I also like the adjustable sights. Mine were off slightly out of the box but from what I read, that's usually not the case. A little adjustment and I was easily grouping 10 shots inside 2" at 10 yards using only the stock sights and firing at a modest rate. The minimal recoil and weight of the gun brings the sights back on target almost automatically.
The ease of take down is also a nice feature. There is a large take down button on the front of the frame that makes take down very easy.
I like the weight of the gun. There are some that say it's to heavy but as I mentioned before, I think it helps.
I like that it comes with two magazines.
It's also a great pistol for target shooting and for teaching and learning. This is a very unintimidating pistol for a new shooter.

What I don't like is the sight picture. With soild black front and rear sites, it's very difficult to see indoors at the range. I fixed this by applying some bright orange paint to the front site. I also don't like the fact that this comes without a case but given the price, I didn't consider this when rating. I bought a plastic Plano case for $10. I'm still in the bargain range with that incuded.
I don't like the safety. I think the lever is a little small and difficult to operate for what it is. It's not horrible, it just doesn't feel like a safety should. Might be different for someone else with a different grip or different hands.
At first I didn't like the magazine release in the front of the grip but have adjusted to it and neither like nor dislike it now. It works.
Overall, the Pros far out weigh the Cons. I found it to be every bit as reliable and accurate as pitols that are twice as much money. Really was a no brainer for me. Very happy with the purchase. Four stars, not five because I rarely give a five. I think it the price range, they could have applied a little paint to the front sights and given a little larger safety lever. Don't let that stop you though.

I bought this as something to learn on. It's a great starter gun to learn control and accuracy... when it works. I had to have it repaired 4 times. It started when the release button on front got jammed and I couldn't strip it for cleaning. Then it failed to load rounds properly and jammed casings. Eventually the firing pin jammed altogether. To be fair, I know a couple people who have the same exact model that had no problems whatsoever. One guy fired nearly 5,000 rounds without cleaning it. Just be warned that when it goes bad, it goes really bad.

      Comments about Smith & Wesson Smith & Wesson Model 22A No Bull Handgun:

      I am an NRA Certified Instructor. In saying that, I just enjoy shooting. However, the recent ammo shortages and costs have made it a financial issue to just "go shooting". I decided to try with a .22LR just for the cost. I ended up with this model after trying a number of others. WOW! The weight and balance are excellent. The sights are excellent with the fiber optic. The cleaning is as easy as I have ever seen. I have been training my wife with this and she is improving in leaps and bounds. Easy to aim, easy to shoot, easy to clean, and easy on the wallet.
