Default S&W Model K22 Hamilton Zip Set & 1955 K22

Redux.........Redux......... For those that have seen these before.


These S&W K22 Hamilton Zip Sets were the 'speedloader' of the day back in the 50's. They were populated, as were the Al Freeland bullet boxes, with the shooter's select .22 cartridges for match target shooting.

Kind of a novel approach don't you think?

Show your Hamilton Zip Sets if you have some.

Oh, and the K22 in the package is one of the highest condition K22's I have seen from that period, plus all the goodies.

Enjoy,
bdGreen

Great items and photography. Most people don't know these items exist. They go back to a time when life was much simpler and more fun.

Very cool accessory for a rimfire revolver.
And speaking of revolvers, I'd take another pic or two of that high condition K22!
I always enjoy your posts Bruce.

They are pretty scarce. Apparently they were also made in .38 cal, presumably for the K-38 shooters of the day but I have never seen one. Here is mine.

Very nice Walter.
Truly a nice bit of S&W history.

I have heard the comment about a .38 caliber being available in the past, but, I suspect it was a comment you made some time ago when I posted these pics before.
I have never seen one in .38 caliber.
Would love to see the same in .38.

Maybe someone is sitting on that gem and can post a picture.

Default Hamilton zip set

Bruce, Hi, I am new here evidently, and have joined because it seems you are the only person with info on these things in the entire web. I also have one of the zip sets i inherited and do not have the k frame to go with it. I am trying to figure out value and interest in it and any help would be very welcome.It is the round .22 cal box with the instruction sheet and loader, I would say in excellent condition. thank you
