i have been hankering for a vintage s&w K22 for years and never found one i could afford until a few weeks ago. picked up this 1948 vintage k22 on gunbroker and just got a chance to shoot it today. what a nice peice. i was blowing up pop cans full of water at 40 yards about 4 out of 6 shots with it. its not a beauty queen, and shows some honest wear and non-original grips but it is exactly what i wanted for plinking and squirrel hunting. i am quite pleased with it and am going to try some CCI ammo in it tomorrow. these old smiths are as sweet as they come.
