    S&w k22

    Sure it just arrived, and I always wanted one, but man oh man I am impressed with this K22. The fit, the high polish blue, the target grips, and the case coloured wide trigger and hammer. Just a great looking gun. I can't wait to shoot it. The single action trigger is insanely light. The balance is spot on.

    So often it's a bit of a let down when you get something you've admired as a kid. Like meeting a movie star and they have bad breath. This baby does not disappoint.

    As a bonus it came with a holster that cleaned up very well with some saddle soap. I'll post the holster separately.

    Makes me wonder what the old holster that came with my prewar K-22 would look like after saddle soap and some elbow grease. There's no manufacturer info on the holster, but it's definitely old. Gun was shipped to downtown L.A. in September 1931. While I'll never know, it's fun to imagine a bigtime actor of the era like James Cagney or Gary Cooper buying the gun on a lunch break before heading off into the desert for some fun. K-22s of the time were definitely purchased by people of means.

    The modern .22 ammo included in the sale was an enticement of the time (2013) that seems ludicrous now when 325rnd boxes of plinking ammo are $17.

    LEO918 and 22_Matt like this.
