Your model 48-2 is chambered for 22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire (WMR). Smith & Wesson in a long standing tradition, will not stamp their products with any indication of another manufacturer’s name so your revolver is marked 22MRF (22 Magnum Rimfire).

Another example of this is my model 16-4 that is stamped 32 Magnum not the correct 32 H&R Magnum. Colt did the same on their products in a well known feud with S&W.
