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.
This Smith & Wesson M&P-22 Compact also features a reversible magazine release and two 10-round magazines which ship standard with every firearm. Smith & Wesson’s specification sheet can be seen below.
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.
