Does anyone know if a 22 conversion kit exists for the M&P yet? This will be a ton of fun to have in the stable. I'd like to have my children start IDPA or USPSA shooting and I can't think of a better combination to have them with other than the M&P with the 22 conversion kit.

For a decent price and reliable performance I think lots of people would buy a .22 conversion. I talked to a rep. and he said that nothing is in the works yet because M&P doesn't have a large enough market...yet

I asked Advantage Arms yesterday at SHOT about the possibility of a conversion unit for the M&P - he didn't know what an M&P was
. He said he'd try to go by S&W and take a look at it :roll:

jeez, S&W has been pretty thorough getting the word out, I wonder how someone who attends SHOT couldn't have noticed.



IF they bring it in at a price point similar to the glock kit, I'd be all over it.

I just got my M& P .40 last week and had my first day at the range ..... all's I can say is I either need a .22 conversion kit or have to get another purchase permit and get a .22. If not I'll probably end up going broke LOL What can I say, my first gun and had loads of fun .... didn't do all too bad either.

I found some other threads on conversion kits and found this email addy - [email protected]

So sent them an Email asking for one.

Well, here is a rather pathetic response I received from Advantage arms reference my email I sent to them....

In my email I sent to them, I discussed all of the buzz the M&P is stirring up. I explained a 22 conversion kit would more than likely sell very quickly. The following is the response I received from them. Guess were out of luck with AA for now (and who knows how long due to this detailed response..)





No plans for the M&P at this time.



Regards,



Advantage Arms

Bear with me everyone, I'm a new guy

Besides cheap ammo, of course, how does practicing with a low-caliber round affect your handling of the gun? I know people say that it reduces flinching. However, don't you have to make a notable adjustment for the recoil, gun weight, etc. when going back to the primary ammo for the gun?



Maybe I should have started a new topic? I don't mean to hijack.

Being able to shoot without distracting recoil and blast allows you to concentrate on what's important in pistol shooting; sight picture, trigger press and followthough. This is why top competition shooters spend as much time dry firing as they do live fire.

Plus costs are a lot lower and with cheaper ammo costs you tend to shoot more.







With the proper grip, recoil control with 22, a airsoft, or a full power 45 is retty much the same anyway. When I shoot my 22/45, my shooting technique is the same as when I shoot my Kimber Procarry or my MP 40. The recovery times are a little faster on the 22, that's all.
