M&P 22 love the gun hate the grip
I think I need some advice from you guys. I love my new M&P 22 pistol but the grip just dosen't work in my hand. I'm an experienced shooter, even matches so I can tell (once I shoot a gun ) if it doen't fit my hands.

The swell in the grip is what I hate about this pistol. If it was flat I think it would be perfect.

So here's where I need your help...should I modify the gun or should I sell it?

Thanks in advance,

I'd sell it.

You'd better plan on keeping it once you modify it.

Can you be more specific? Grips too large or too small?

Look for after market grips if you like the pistola.

I've always rented / shot a pistol before deciding to buy it. Tried a few newer .22 pistols before choosing my M&P .22. I learned many years ago that a pistol is like a woman - she fits or she doesn't, and any attempt to change things usually doesn't work. Just ask my soon-to-be ex.

There isn't another gun in its class IMO. Full size, light weight, reliable, affordable. The other gun I considered is the Kimber 1911 rimfire target but at 3x the price I never seriously considered it. I think if I sell it it will be a long time before I find a replacement. I guess I'm keeping it.

I'm building up the nerve to flatten the swells in the grip. I need to think thru each step so I don't screw it up.

Thanks for your replies.

oops I voted "modify it" before I read your post. After I read your post, I thought you should sell it.... or whatever..

i own one and dont mind the grip.

it's fairly cheap and it works great. better than a lot of 22 offerings out there from what i read

i'd opt to have it done by a reputable individual. consider it a small investment of sorts, and if the job ain't half bad i'm sure you'll be able to sell it retaining most the value that can be expected.
