Smith & Wesson introduces the M&P 22 Compact to their popular M&P line of polymer handguns.
The M&P22 Compact is a smaller, rimfire version of Smith & Wesson's .22-caliber M&P22 centerfire pistol. The new compact version is 15 percent smaller than most full-size M&P models.

"Target shooters, recreational shooting enthusiasts or anyone looking to add more excitement to their shooting experience can now enjoy a compact .22 LR semi-automatic pistol with all the adaptability and versatility that are synonymous with the M&P brand," said Smith & Wesson President & CEO James Debney.
The M&P22 Compact retails for $389 and ships with two 10-round magazines.Smith & Wesson is sweetening the deal by offering customers a shipment of free ammunition. The company will ship 222 rounds of Winchester .22LR to each M&P22 Compact customer from now through Dec. 31.
