S&W M&P22 Compact Suppressor Ready in Cerakote FDE

Cerakote FDE

The National Rifle Association’s (NRA) Annual Meetings are now complete. With over 750 vendors of firearm related products on hand dispersed throughout multiple convention centers, it was truly a sight to see! Normally every year the most exciting firearm and product announcements occur at SHOT Show in Las Vegas, but there are a fair share of items to be excited about coming from this show as well. This includes the BRAND NEW Smith & Wesson M&P-22 Compact Suppressor Ready in a Cerakote FDE (Flat Dark Earth) Finish.

This pistol is a marriage of all things that are popular for rim-fire shooters right now. It has an adjustable rear sight to better dial in your accuracy. It features both an ambidextrous manual safety and an internal lock to safely store the pistol. The accessory rail on the frame allows for limitless possibilities in add-on accessories. The threaded barrel with cap is perfect for a multitude of direct thread suppressors with its 1/2″ x 28 TPI pattern. Finally, you are not in the Tacti-Cool club unless you own a firearm that is not black; thus, we have the ever popular Cerakote FDE colored frame.

For many people, the timing is ripe to buy a suppressor. There are now 42 of the 50 states where they are legal to purchase. Also, there is more pressure on consumers to get off the metaphorical fence because ATF ruling 41F starts July 13th, 2016.

The outdoors, fitness and anything related to firearms are my passions. I am a S&W Armorer, Glock Armorer, reloader and am coping with an addiction to classic S&W and Colt revolvers (by buying more revolvers). I’ve been a guest writer for Sierra Bullets and love long walks to the gun range.

    Nice. Sometimes I hate you Americans, you lucky dogs. 🙂 😉

    why are these companies limiting .22s to only 10 rounds?……youve got the room there, ship these things with 15+ round mags….

    • Rimmed cartridges don’t stack well.

        I understand that they don’t but I’ve been hoping for at least 12 or 13 rounders to come out for a good 22 lr pistol. Hundred or so years here now we’ve had ten rounders, and for recalcitrant horse’s-butts like myself 10 rounds for a detachable-storage-and-feeding-device is a line in the sand to be crossed, whizzed on and so forth. Plus if I’m to be deprived the convenience of a revolver I want to be able to load lots of bullets into the assault-clip.

            OK, thanks, I’m considering that PPQ22 now, I did not know about that. It was eclipsed in awareness by the P22.

  • thedonn007

    The magazine disconnect safety should not be considered a feature.

  • Mystick

    I really would have liked to have seen an external hammer…

  • Thisoneguy

    I think the PPQ 22 tactical is a better option…


    I see in the S&W marketing piece they called the “Thread Protector” a “Thread Adapter”. Which it is not. A Thread Adapter allows you to mount a suppressor that is in a different threading than the barrel. So if you have a suppressor threaded in 13.5x1LH, but your barrel is threaded 1/2×28, you need a 13.5x1LH “Thread Adapter”.

    You would think S&W would know that. It would be much cooler if it had an OD Green Thread Adapter as well.
