Thank you posters that have offered such kind words.

An interesting anecdote that many of you may know is that back in the heyday preceding WW I, the K frame 22 was conceived. A prototype was built and tested. It failed miserably to be an accurate shooter and was shelved.

A couple of decades later someone again took interest in the project only to discover that the barrel rifling was incorrectly bored for the .22 bullet.

Once corrected, the rest is history.
