An acquaintance from a different state sent me a question about a S&W .22 in his possession. From his description, it seems he has a .22/.32 Heavy Frame Target. He gives the serial number as 240182.
My thinking is that this gun was shipped after the "Bekeart Model" made it into the catalog in 1915, but prior to the government takeover of S&W in 1917.
As expected, the charge holes are not counterbored.
Any thoughts on this gun?
