S&W M&P 22 Mod 22 LR 4.1" 12+1 Syn Fixed Backstrap Gr 
by Tyrell M
Date Added: Monday 26 November, 2012
I will start this review with Buds. They were fantastic. I ordered this on a Monday afternoon (PST) and it shipped out the following day. I would have received it on Thursday, but since that happened to be Thanksgiving I didn't get it until Friday. They processed and shipped in 1 business day, and may have been the same day had I ordered in the morning. My only gripe, which is admittedly petty and minor is I never received an email notifying me it had shipped and giving me a tracking number like the website said I should. I ended up logging back into the site to find that information. I am only mentioning this because if you make an order and you're frustrated that it hasn't shipped yet, check the website first, their system may not have sent out the email. I still give Buds a 5/5.
The M&P 22 is also flawless. I took it out after a good cleaning/lubing (to get the packaging grease off) and fed about 700 rounds of various bulk ammo through it (all jacketed/plated); some Remington, Federal, CCI and some Winchester. I didn't experience a single failure to feed, fire or eject (with no cleaning on the range). I was so blown away by the ergonomics that I may be trading in my Glock G23 for an M&P here shortly. It fits the hand better, the mag release is easier to reach without repositioning my hand and without buying an extended mag release, etc. I would suggest you find a Brick and Mortar and hold one before you buy it, but it's a great little plinker and full size trainer at only $.03 per round. I would rate this gun as a 5/5.
When I buy my M&P 9, I will be buying it from Buds.
