I started my addiction to Colt .22 revolvers a couple of years ago with my first one, a Frontier Scout .22 SA. My frontier scout has a blued barrel & cylinder, black anodized frame, nickle grip frame, & pearl stocks because it's part of a Nevada Statehood Centennial .22/.45 SAA combo commerative set from 1964. Both guns had been fired, so I wasn't worried when I fired them. I was simply amazed with how well that .22 shot for a fixed sighted revolver! It has always shot right to point of aim for me and will hold sub-2" groups at 25 yards!
The .22 Frontier Scout is pictured here below the .45:
Next, I found a .22 Official Police from 1952, original dual tone finish and Coltwood stocks. It shot as well as the Frontier Scout, again despite having fixed sights:
My latest is a pre-war .22 Officer's Model from 1941. The DA trigger on this is butter smooth. I don't know how they got such a light DA pull on a rimfire! This gun gives my S&W pre-model 17 K22 a run for it's money!
Hopefully, it won't be the last! Feel free to show your Colt .22 revolvers!

Snub nose revolvers

I forgot about the .22 Cobra. I like that idea!
I have to second that on how well the scout performs . I shot mine a couple weeks ago . First shot was weak hand from the hip at 10 yard ,at a cookie tin lid for a hanging hole- I missed. Two handed hold with proper sight picture ....... A Seth Thomas at high noon !
COLT TO THE CORE
Correction , it was ten feet . This was with the magnum cylinder , and was the first time I ever shot this revolver.
COLT TO THE CORE
I was going to put a plug in for the Diamondback in .22 but GigG got to it first. Don't forget the Trooper in .22 also.
“It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carry the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life, or death ---- it shall be life.” - Ten Bears - “The Outlaw Josey Wales”
