Anyone else following this and waiting for this plinker/trainer to be out? I have exchanged a few emails with S&W, mainly asking when to expect to see the gun released, price, and whether they will submit it to CA DOJ for testing. Was first told to expect it relased late April, now they're saying mid-June-July. Price will be $415 MSRP but will most likely sell for $369. No word on whether they plan to submit it for testing but based on S&W's past I'd say they plan on doing it.

Couldn't wait so I bought a 22A. If this is CA legal, though, I may have to get one. It does look sweet and would make a good buddy to my M&P AR-15 22.

I think I'm gonna wait for this to come out. I almost went for the Sig Mosquito. Yeah it would look good with it's sister 15-22

I'm not sure if you guys heard, but this isn't a M&P with a .22lr topend.

It is a completely different pistol styled like the M&P...it even has a hammer

It's still a nice looking plinker

It's not even made by S&W.
They contracted it out to another company (non-USA).
Almost none of the parts interchange with the S&W M&P line of pistols.

I'm guessing similar to their AR line?

Correct points made above. It will be its own gun but will feel and be dimensionally similar to the M&P 9 and 40. It will be made by Umarex.

I got another update from S&W today, saying the new MSRP price is $600! Seems like a bit leap to me and not worth the price when their full size guns go for less. We'll see what the street price is and whether it is worth it, hoepfully in a few months.

$600? WTF are they smoking crack? I guess I'll just go pay $300 on a mosquito

I'm going to start bugging the crew at Apex Tactical to see how hard it would be to come out with an upper.

Maybe Tactical Solutions has one in the pipeline already

Straight from S&W in an email. I'm not sure if the guy is misinformed, was thinking of the M&P15 pistol or what. At $600 I'm out, I'll pick up a AA kit, a 22/45, or wait for Tacsols new .22 kit, before I spend $600 on a .22, I'm hoping the price is in around $400.

I'd like to see Tacsol's out soon but they're lagging with just the G17 version, from there I hear they're going to do a G19 version and then the jump to the M&P. But I see it being a long wait, the G17 version was supposed to be out months ago and there is still nothing.

From what I read on the M&P forum it is a Walther P22 in M&P clothing. This was confirmed by two others that saw it at SHOT. I was planning to get one until I read that. Now I'm just going to wait for a 22lr top end.

That's a lot of cash for a .22 pistol. I suppose if cash wasn't an issue I'd be down.

Looks pretty cool but no way does it look 600 bucks cool, not even close.

Once it is out, will have to definitely check it out. Perfect match for my 15-22 MOE.

Well I couldn't wait for this to come out. Plus with debatable pricing. I went with a $299 Mosquito @ Turners. Good luck with your wait. I'm glad mine is 10days

Mosquito blows. Umarex is a division of Walther that makes .22s, air pistols and the like.
They is no way it will be $600 -- it would be twice the price of all the other Umarex guns, and S&W, while dumb, is not STUPID.

There is a youtube video of a rep. from S&W at some gun show that says the MSRP will be about $379. This same price was also metioned on another video by a S&W rep. as well.

Cool 22's for less than 4 bills, I'll get one.

Wish someone would make a top end like advantage arms I think?

The people who do the glock .22 uppers? that way you can keep everything like normal on your pistol setup(if you had a stipled grip etc)

Can't wait to see it in person. Pictures look really nice but you only get a sense of how well or not well it is built till it's in your hands. Would look great next to my M&P 45. And can't complain about the price of ammo on a 22lr.

I saw the ISSC 22 (looks like the Glock and /or XD) and is VERY similar to this S&W. It was just added to the roster.
