Default 22 Long Rifle CTG

I posted this in the wrong section initially but I have a 22 Long Rifle CTG handgun. I know very little about this. Last patent date is sept. 14 09. There is a number above the loading area of 7918. Barrel is 10" long? I can't seem to find mych info on this gun. It appears to have no serial number or hand grip may have been replaced.

You do not have a .22 Long Rifle CTG.
There is no such thing.
CTG is an abbreviation for cartridge, you've just given the caliber of your gun, which you might have learned if you'd looked at other "CTG" threads on this forum.

Now you can discuss it more accurately with people.

You have a Smith & Wesson .22 Single Shot, Third Model. These were made from about 1909 to 1923, when the model was retired. About 7,000 of this model were produced. They resemble the earlier second model but the parts are not interchangeable.

That is a custom wood grip on your gun; I have never seen one exactly like it. If you take it off, you may find a maker's ID inside, or some feature that will help you identify it further. You should also find the gun's serial number stamped on the butt of the gun. I presume 7918 is the frame number as well as the latch number, because at a certain point in the manufacturing process the gun's frame number was used on other parts to keep them together after they had gone through the fitting process but before they were blued.

Those are in-demand guns in collectors' eyes. Congratulations on having it in the family.
