    My all-time favorite 22 pistols are my 3 Screw S&W Combat Masterpiece (Model 18-2) and 4 Screw S&W K22 Masterpiece (Model 17 no dash)!

    This S&W Model 18 was the first handgun that I purchased. I was in college at the time and purchased it in 1965 from Olive’s in Magnolia, Arkansas. This little Combat Masterpiece has had countless rounds fired through it. A couple of us High School buddies used to purchase 22 ammunition by the brick (each) and go down to the Red River, just south of Garland, AR and we would make a competitive day out of shooting every little rock, pebble, narrow stick, or floating chunk of foam that we could turn into a target and competition. Sadly, I no longer own this little S&W; it has become my wife’s favorite revolver to shoot and she now claims it as hers!



    I purchased this 1959 vintage S&W Model 17 (K22 Masterpiece) about 35 years ago. I haven’t put nearly as many rounds through it as the Model 18, but I’ve exercised it pretty well! Accuracy wise I don’t think I could give the edge to either one despite the difference in barrel length!!!! This one is still mine!!!!!!!!

    Another DIY re-creation of mine; came to me crying for TLC. So-ooooo, in addition to the obvious, I reamed the chambers a tad deeper so I can shoot either its intended .44 Russian or .44 Special ----


    ------------- some 5 or 6 years ago.

    So here are a few random items from the Smith & Wesson part of my collection:
    1. A Model 1896 Hand Ejector shipped in 1900 to E.K.Tryon Co. in Philadelphia
    2. A .32 Safety Hammerless shipped in 1906 to Pacific Hardware in San Francisco
    3. A .38 Regulation Police shipped in 1917, from the estate of Spencer Olin (of Olin Corp./Winchester-Western)
    4. Two retired police service guns: A 1947 S-series M&P (Nassau Co. PD/Mineola NY) and a 1968 Model 10-6 (NYPD).

    2001-ish Heritage model 24 with Fishpaw grips:


    Same year 1917, again with Fishpaw grips (and a Tim Britton knife):


    A model 58; it's fun with "police" loads:


    A flock of forty-fours:


    A 646 .40 cal., you don't see many of these:


    A 1952 K38; I don't know who did the engraving. Shoots like a dream:



    A plenty of twenty-twos:


    I feel like I'm wasting bandwidth, so just one more. Lock and all, I love this 686 Pro .357:

    I have never owned a Smith but based on all the great photos I have clearly been missing out.
