The SP22 is a modular semi-automatic pistol manufactured by Walther Sportwaffen and distributed by Smith and Wesson. The SP-22 is chambered in .22LR and is designed for sport and competition shooting. It is manufactured with a composite receiver, aluminum housing, and all-steel internal components. Walther has four different models of the SP-22: the SP22 M1, SP22 M2, SP22 M3 and SP22 M4, as well as multiple accessories for customizing.[5]

Variants[edit]

SP22 M1[edit]

The basic version of the pistol is the SP22 M1. The M1 is equipped with a 4-inch (10 cm) standard barrel, adjustable steel sights, and a two-stage trigger complete with adjustable trigger stop.

SP22 M2[edit]

The M2 model features a longer, 6-inch (15 cm) barrel for increased velocity and accuracy.

SP22 M3[edit]

The M3 model features a 6-inch (15 cm) match-grade barrel along with an adjustable match trigger. It also has removable Picatinny-style rails on top of, and underneath the housing. The M3 also comes larger polymer grips, and a quick-release magazine catch.

SP22 M4[edit]

The M4 model retains the same standard features that are found on the M3, but includes a contoured adjustable wooden grip with hand support, and lacks the Picatinny-style rails.
