Default K-22 Masterpiece 22 LR

I have a K-22 Masterpiece Target Revolver.
I would like to ID the year of MFG and learn a fair selling price for the gun.
The serial number is K985xx. The number on the yoke is X 7 52424 It is a 5 screw with a strain screw. 6" Barrel. Blued Finish
The information on the box is as follows:
Companion Gun to the K-32 and K-38 Masterpieces
Micrometer Click Sight, Short Cocking Action, Ribbed Barrel, Heavy Frame, Anti-Backlash Trigger, S&W High Speed Hammer.
The gun is in very good shape showing little use but was carried in a holster so the blue finish on the front of the barrel is worn for about 3/4"
I am happy to post photos if needed.
I also have the 357 Post War 5 screw that you helped me to ID. in another post. Mfg 1953
Is it better to sell these guns as a pair or separately?
Again thanks so much for you help with this question.

1950 or close by that.

Sell separately.

Sir, I have to say that the two revolvers you mention really shouldn't be sold at all! They are yours, of course, and technically, I own very little that is not for sale if the price is right. But you have two of my favorite revolver models. Of course, all models of S&W revolvers from the fifties are some of my favorites!!

I happen to have a K-22 very similar in age to yours listed here. Mine is very slightly younger than yours. I have mine pegged as built in 1951. It has been carried and used and fired untold numbers of times since it has been in my possession since 1971 and on loan to my father during part of that time. It has been maintained well during that time period and it is probably the last revolver in my possession that I would sell!! I suspect I'd really like to have a copy of that Post War .357 mag you mention in you post as a companion to my K22. I'll bet it is a dandy.

Welcome to the FORUM! I suggest that you take them out and shoot them before you decide to sell. (my opinion) They are desirable in the right condition. Sell separately. It can be hard to replace something once it is gone. Bob
