Smith & Wesson® Launches the New M&P®22 MAGNUM Designed with the TEMPO™ Barrel System

Smith & Wesson Brands, Inc. (NASDAQ Global Select: SWBI), a leading firearms designer and manufacturer, today announces the launch of the new M&P22 MAGNUM pistol, chambered in 22 WMR.

This latest addition to the M&P series is all about bringing more. More capacity, more reliability and more features. Its internal percussion design, combined with the TEMPO gas-actuated cylinder system, keeps components locked in place until the bullet passes through the gas port, increasing performance. With a staggering 30-round capacity, the M&P22 MAGNUM full-size polymer frame ships with two magazines so you can spend less time reloading and more time training. It comes with a fiber optic front sight, a black notched rear sight and is optics ready allowing you to directly mount most of the popular micro red dots available today.

“The M&P22 MAGNUM combines the best features of our internal hammer fire control system with the proprietary TEMPO barrel design, creating a smooth operating experience for the shooter. The 22 WMR is a versatile and practical cartridge that has been a legacy among American shooters, hunters, and trappers for decades. Smith & Wesson is proud to offer a new pistol that further supports the use of this cartridge outdoors or at the range,” said John Myles, senior manager of new products.

The M&P22 MAGNUM is fully ambidextrous, has a 4.35-inch stainless steel barrel with Armornite® finished, it includes a flat-face trigger and a Picatinny-style rail for mounting accessories. This pistol is proudly made in the USA and has an MSRP of $649.00.
