Bought one today on sale for 329.95 + free box of winchester 222rd. I already own a 4"and a 6" 617 never owned a semi 22 before. Going to try it out in the morning hopefully their as reliable as the reviews say. One thing I really like about it is you can field strip it in less than 5 seconds.

Yep. A well made plinker. Bought one for my son and he has several thousand through his. It runs like a clock and isn't fussy about what you feed it.

Bought one for my wife to practice with, since she is halfway comfortable with my Shield (which may turn into HER Shield, and I have absolutely NO problem with that :D ). Very similar and an excellent trainer. And fun as all get-out. Shoots Thunderbolts, too!

Bought one yesterday.

Cleaned, lubed, and inspected before heading for the range. Shot CCI standard velocity, American Eagle, Federal 40 gr., Winchester bulk hollow points, and even a box of the much maligned Thunderbolts.

Experienced 2 failures to feed in the first two magazines. No other failures in the next 20 magazines of rounds. I attribute the two failures to being a new pistol. I think the Compact is a keeper.

The compact shot great groups until the Thunderbolts that were shot last. Then I noticed the groups opened up a bit. During cleaning I noted lead particles being removed from the barrel, so I think the Thunderbolts may have leaded the barrel.

I really like the M&P 22 Compact and look forward to getting more rounds through it.

They're as light as a feather and feel like a toy gun, but mine has been extremely reliable and a great practice gun for my 1911s (same manual of arms). I bought it about a year ago as a reaction to the problems I was having with a new Walther P22 I'd bought just a month earlier. The P22 is extremely ammo-sensitive. The MP22c will shoot a lot of the stuff the P22 won't, and while no .22 has ever been 100% reliable in my hands it does at least as well as my Ruger 10/22. My only real complaint is that the accuracy isn't that great, but for a plinking or practice gun it's fine. It's just not a target pistol.

Remington Thunderbolts are about the worst ammo out there currently. Not only have I run across a bunch with badly deformed bullets, but when I shot a couple boxes out of my MP22c and P22 both pistols ended up with badly leaded bores which were a b!#ch to clean out. If you have any Thunderbolts left give them away to somebody you don't like who shoots better than you do.
