I have had mine for a while now and have had no problems
with jams as long as you use the right 22LR
ammunition and keep it clean and lubricated.
The S&W 22A has little or no felt recoil. After all it
is a 22LR caliber handgun that is fairly big and heavy.
At BudsGunShop.com 9 out of 9 customers rated the S&W
22A at 5/5 stars.
Easy to clean and maintain. Field stripping is fast and
easy and requires no tools.

Hard To Pull Slide On 22A Pistol
January 16, 2013
Message: I have great difficulty pulling back the slide due to shoulder
surgery. Any solutions to this. Thanks, Chuck
Response - Chuck
Which gun are you referring to? If it's a Glock I think there's a gizmo out
there that can help. Tanner
S&W 22A. One has to pinch the receiver from behind because only the slide
moves and not the whole assembly. I also have a Glock 21 in 45 Cal. I have
no difficulty because I can get my whole hand envolved. Thanks, Chuck
Chuck, Now I know what you mean. I don't care for that either. I did find
one thing that may help, but I don't know anything about it other than
what's shown. You may want to check it out.
Good luck, Tanner
Large Grips On S&W22a
September 9, 2012
A relative approached me with an offer to buy his s&w 22a (talo?)..this
pistol has wooded grips that seem to be extremely LARGE !! he say s&w sells
grip that are smaller...my question is how much small?..thanks.
Response - Mike,
The width of my Smith & Wesson 22a grips is 1 1/4". I have included pictures
of my "standard grips" on this page. Before you buy the gun, it you might
want to stop at a gun shop and get a feel of what standard grips are like
and how much they would cost you if you were to order them. Changing grips
may offset the deal you are getting from your relative. Best regards,
Highly Recommend the Smith & Wesson 22a

My first handgun is this model. I love the 22a! I picked it up this past
Friday night, and went to the range yesterday. I put 650 rounds (200 cci
hollow point and 450 blazer bullnose) though it without a single misfire or
jam. The action is super smooth and getting used to the mag release becomes
second nature after three or four magazines have been run through. I would
highly recommend this piece for anyone looking for an all-around dependable
Smith & Wesson 22a Pistol Ammo
January 3, 2012
I have had and enjoyed my s&w 22a for six months. I shoot Federal in the
#525 brick, I am on my 6th box with one fail to eject all the way a box and
a half ago. I put a red dot sight on a week ago and it makes it even more
fun. I am a s&w man model 65-357 642-38sp and one springfield 1911 45
mil-spec. I love my s&w 22a.
SW 22a Pistol Problem
June 17, 20110
I purchased a S&W 22A a couple of years ago and could not get the
sights adjusted to get a group into the black at 50 yards, they were in the
8 ring at 6 o'clock on a bulls eye target. I sent it back to the factory and
after about two months called and asked where my gun was. They informed me
it would take a little while longer. When I asked to speak to one of the
gunsmiths I was told they didn't have any gunsmiths working there, just
repairmen. When they finally returned my .22 all they did was bend the
bridge on the rear sight. I'm a retired Army shooter and a member of a
national record setting service pistol (.45 at the time) four man team, so I
can hold my own on the range. I gave the gun and everything that came with
it away because it wasn't worth even using as a paper weight. As far as I'm
concerned the only .22 automatic that S&W ever made that was worth a darn
was the Model 41, the older ones. I like their revolvers, but not their
