Question havent seen this one yet

I guess it is the 22A replacement, check out the grip frame, I wonder where that came from!? not bad looking and lots of features. maybe a year or so down the road I might consider one. I stay away from any new production gun, I don't want to work out the bugs for the mfg!! look at the R51 Remington. no thank you, I will WAIT!!

It comes with one - but you have to remove the rear open sight to fit it. Go to the users manual section to read all about it.

It looks similar to a Buckmark, and even has a barrel screw as does the Buckmark. S&W should have interviewed Buckmark owners, as the least liked thing about field stripping them is having to use a tool to remove two screws.

Compare that to the strip of the SR22, or even their own M&P 22 & 22 Compact, and also the Model 41.

Stainless components and a $409 list price? I predict a lot of sales.

I think it could be a great gun,. 5 1/2 SS bull barrel and a one screw takedown is right up my alley. I had Buckmarks with a screw and the only problem was you were screwing into aluminum and had to be careful. With the new S&W the screw is going into SS, a big no problem, sure is a lot easier than the Ruger take down. With a street price of about $300 it's going to sell. It won't replace my 41 but it looks to be a winner that I'll get to play with.

An interesting alternative to the Ruger 'Marks"
May appeal to those intimidated by Ruger's take-down procedure

Appearance wise - I give the win to Ruger
The grip shape appears similar to the 22A
And that grip never felt right to me - I would have bought one save for that

I think it's never a bad thing to have more choices

Don't like the grip myself. Tried out 22A never like the grip.

The rest of the pistol seems good to go.

It would be nice to see it in a darker colour.

The grip is what held me back on them. The wood grips on the 22A look good, but never fit my hand correctly.
