Absolutely the finest 22LR revolvers ever made by S&W.
Thank you for sharing members.

I found them on Armslist of all places. The guy was selling a model 17-4 wearing a set of Herrett's and the gun came with another set of mystery grips included with the package. The ropers were the "'mystery grips". The guy wouldn't separate the stocks from the rest of the package so I ended up having the buy it all.

I found an Outdoorsman red box going through my Dad's things. I do not have the revolver. What were the original contents of the box? Thanks for any help you can provide.

Welcome to the forums from the Wiregrass! I cannot view your #3 picture. Be advised that Photobucket doesn't work on many forums these days unless you pay them substantial money to allow links to your pictures. As it says on the box, it contained a S&W .22 Outdoorsman revolver which is a K (medium) frame, square butt, six shot with a 6" barrel and target sights which were adjustable. There is a picture of a similar Outdoorsman in the post above yours.


The serial number of the original gun may be written on the bottom of the box. If you give us that number, we can probably tell you more such as approximately when the gun was made. In general, your Dad's gun was made in the 1930's.

Don't throw the box away. It has value if you choose to sell it.

Thanks for responding. I don't have the revolver. I searched diligently and cannot find a serial number anywhere on the box. I'll try to post picture #3 again. I have 2 other blue model 10-5 boxes and a poor shape blue model 34-1 top (which I may be able to find the bottom for). I will eventually sell all of them for my Mother's benefit.

There are some misc tools in the red box (no screw driver) - I would like to know what tools came with the K22 Outdoorsman.

Someone who has a complete package will be along and tell you what all was in the Outdoorsman's box. Make sure you look on the bottom in good lighting. Some of the annotations were done in pencil and may still be there but faded.


You should be able to insert pictures into your posts if you have subscribed to Photobucket. Copy the URL in the IMG box and paste it into your text. It should insert like this.

The contents of your red box would have included:

* The K-22 Revolver
* Helpful Hints Brochure (pre-war version)
* Small Sight Adjustment Tool (screwdriver)
* Tan Tissue Paper
* Caution Paper (off white)
* Green Guaranty Notice
* Looped and Twisted Wire "rod" with Swab on end
* Looped and Twisted Wire "rod" with Plastic Brush on end

... pretty much like this (same contents in an earlier box).

Default My contribution....

I closed the deal on this one recently.

Is 1935 a close guess for DOB?

It has to be at least a year newer since it has the large Logo on the side plate which was ordered in Dec. 1936.
