I bought a brand new SMC-22 for my wife to practice with. My wife, however, chooses to practice with her carry gun an IJ-70.
The SMC-22 is a very well made gun with Makarov-type action, dependability and accuracy. -Propaganda says, "22 Long Rifle Patterned After The Walther PP. Imported From Hungary And Distributed By K.B.I. In Harrisburg, Pa. Alloy Frame, Double Action, Eight Shot Magazine, 4 Inch Barrel, Black Plastic Grips, With Thumbrest."
I put two boxes through it, including a box of Stingers and I wasn't disappointed. It's dirt-cheap to use.
If you're interested in buying my wife's, let me know. Maybe I can save you a buck.
I traded Kahrpacker an AP-74 for this little SMC 22 and I love it. I fired a box of hollowpoint, cheap remington ammo through it with no problems. Very nice pistol. I highly recommend them to anyone that is interested and can find one.
