.22 Revolvers

So Tam has a post up on the cost of .22 revolvers. I have to say her logic is impeccable. Since she mentions the Smith and Wesson 617, I thought I would oblige. 




Yep! Just like the 686 .357 Magnum. Big honking K Frame. Noted as the K-22 Masterpiece Stainless FulI-lug.  I agree with Tam. The cost to make this Handgun regardless of caliber would be the same to me. 


Here is a shot of the 617 with its little sister, the Model 34-1 Kit gun. Chambered in the same caliber. 



The cost is in the action, not so much the raw materials.

  1. In these days of hi-cap mags and such a 22 revolver is still just as much fun. IMHO.

  5. I'll neither confirm nor deny (cuz ya'll probably don't have the clearance nor need to know ;-) that one of them ended up as a birthday present a while back - but I CAN confirm that they are good shooters!

  6. That looks like a lot of fun. Computer broke (literally, two keys came off the ancient thing and as it was a laptop, it was easier to get a new one than add a new keyboard) but at least now I can get caught up on the blogs

    Paid close to $1000 for the original, got one almost like it in the low 3's. Isn't technology grand.
