Default "New" K22 Showed up Today***UPDATED w Target***

Actually, it's a long way from new, but it is a very nice shooter grade. I wasn't really looking for a K-22, but ran across this one on a gun auction site. Serial # K1757xx, made in 1953. Ended up with it for $465.

My goodness, that certainly must not have been a very well attended auction site. That could have gone for near twice that amount!

It looks like a standard Patridge. Are there any inserts or beads? Can you post a closer view?

The gun was on GunBroker. When I look for a gun to buy, I look for a nice quality gun, not perfect. I thought I got lucky on this one.

Yep, standard Patridge front sight, no inserts or beads.

"I thought I got lucky on this one. "
You get the understatement of the week award. Maybe for the month.

Way to go.

Like it. I have a model 17-4 and I certainly would not sell it for anywhere near that. If I had yours it would not be sold for anything close to what you paid. Great buy! Steve

I was only bidder with min. bid $176.00. Two days went by I couldn't believe no one else was going to bid on it. Pleasantly surprised at end, as I'm sure you were.

Glad that a Forum Member ended up with it. 1953 is my birth year. Was watching it myself. Did not bid high enough if I remember right. Then I bit the proverbial bullet, and went "BUY IT NOW" on a super nice 17-2. It was $550 though. 1964 on it. Bob

Nice. Just about the same I paid for mine a year ago, shipped in 1952. Great shooter.

Love my 17-4 too. Bought it new in 1980 for $225. I think they make a nice pair.

Just wanted to post a picture of a target that I shot with this K-22. Shot at 10 yards from a bench/sandbag, single action. Given the fact that I wear progressive lenses, and the revolver sights are pretty blurred through my "old" eyes, I was quite pleased with the results. It shot circles around my 17-4. The only other revolver I have with a nicer trigger than this is my 14-1. No words can describe the sweetness of the trigger on this K-22.

My 1948 vintage K-22 cost me $425 at a local live auction 5-6 years ago and I don't think it's anywhere near as nice as yours. Well done!

Nice shooting. I found the same with my 1951 vintage K-22. Using a bench rest it still shoots inside the X ring at 50 feet. And, the trigger is as you said, sweet, even in DA. It is far more accurate than I am. Wish my 1911 trigger was that sweet. It's like the difference between driving a sportscar and truck.
