I spotted this 1934-vintage Officer's Model .22 on a back shelf of a nearby gunshop and pointed out that it did NOT have its original stocks. The management was kind enough to compensate for this heinous fact by selling it to me for a song. Well, that sure made my day-after-Christmas! As denizens of the S&W forum can attest, I like any handgun outfitted with Roper stocks, and these are pretty ones with a right-panel palm swell, lovely figured wood, and crisp checkering. I don't think Roper sold them with the "thumb relief" on the left panel, but whoever made it did a good job. There is a Santa Claus!
