M&P 22 Compact, Made in America?



Log in to see fewer ads
I have been reading many reviews on the M&P 22 Compact. Tried one today at the local store and it feels great. Several reviews have said it is made in America. The gun I looked at today had "made in germany" on the frame. Can anyone shed any light on where the current M&P 22 compact is manufactured? Could this new gun be old stock? Thanks, Kevin

my understanding is the 22C is entirely American made at the factory in Springfield, Mass USA. The fullsize is made in Germany by Walther.

I checked both my FS and Compact. The FS M&P says "Made in Germany" on it.

Is the Full Size M&P 22 still sold new?

Would it still be available in stores?

The fullsize I don't know.

Picked mine up lightly used for $250.

we just got one and it is very reliable, but for what you pay the bores are roughly rifled, and that's on pretty much all of them. you can smooth them up some with jb paste but if you send it back they will send you anotherrough barrel, lots of people here have done that to no avail and they won't admit that the bores are rough. that being said I like the gun for it's reliability and to train for using a 9mm in the future because it has that long takeup trigger even though it's single action. It's a close range reliable pistil that feels great in the hand but doesn't have the accuracy to shoot soda cans at 25 yards, it's just not that type weapon.

the other good thing about it to be fair is that the slide is the easiest charging slide of any pistol you will ever handle, it is really fun to shoot but just a challenge to hit anything with past 15 yards.

The full size is still available for sale. Can't say I've come across one in a store in quite some time. You would probably have to order one and have it sent to your FFL.
