Two S&Ws: K-22 and 27-2 Login/Join

I was pleased to be able to acquire a 1947 vintage S&W K-22. It’s a cool gun just to own and shoot, but I’m also using it as a practice tool to become a better revolver shooter overall.

I’ve been pairing it with other S&Ws at the range, running 12 to 18 rounds at a time through first the K-22 and then whatever other revolver I’ve brought along.

For this session, the partner-gun was a five-inch barreled 27-2. I don’t know the full lineage on either of these guns, but they both see regular range-time.

After a recent session but before a formal cleaning, I wiped them down and took a few pics.

I think my favorite shot is the second one - love those pinned, tapered barrels!

WOW!!

The K22 has to be my all time favorite S&W!

^^ I hear you on that - it’s quickly becoming a favorite of mine, for sure - it’s been with me on every range trip I’ve made since I got it.

I bought a 6inch K-22, Model 17-3, new in 1974. I have a variety of different 22 pistols, semi autos, double action revolvers and single action revolvers. I like the K-22 so much that I have acquired an 8 inch and a 4 inch. I think if I could only have one .22 pistol, it would be my 6 inch K-22. Both of your S&WS are very nice, I am sure you will enjoy them.

Very nice! A K-22 is on my wish list. And a Colt Trooper in .22. Maybe after the house has been paid for...

Those are both nice, but what fun a K-22 would be.
