    My dad had a 6" blued one. I should have bought it when he sold it. They are pretty heavy compared to the old plain barreled guns, but shoot really well.

    That little gun is plenty accurate, but, well, kinda small for field use.
    That is pretty sad. Have you done any diagnostics on it?

    I was wrong,it is actually a 17. I have not done anything, what were you thinking? I'd love to get it up to speed.

    Really need to shoot the thing more.
    It takes a lot to make me super ghey for a .22 but that gun just does it for me. That is simply gorgeous.

    That's not a real K-22; that is a current/recent production M-17.

    Real K-22s haven't been made in over 30 years. Apologies to LR; but there it is… and accuracy is hit or miss, along with cylinder issues. IOW, you may get one that is a tack-driver and the charge holes don't coke up in 50 rounds or less… or, you may get one that groups only so-so, and you better have a cleaning rod with a brush to hand if you want to get through a box of ammunition. BTW, this also applies to kit guns and the M-18 of those earlier days. I've had both examples; and the latter is enough to swear you off revolvers in general, and .22 revolvers in particular.

    Real K-22s had polished charge holes and did not leave the plant unless they shot to a standard. To my knowledge, no other .22 revolvers faced this test.

    are new ones ok?



    686-6 6" I picked up a couple months ago. Yes... it puts a big ass grin on the face of everyone who shoots it. It's scary accurate to boot.

    I have that same pistol with a 4" barrel. It reminds me of a baby 586. That's a bit of a unicorn in certain circles.
