Default Please Help Identify

A friend of mine recently inherited the gun pictured and wants to sell it but before she can do that, we need to clearly identify the gun. It looks to be a 1949 K22 based upon the serial number but I wanted to ask the experts here on the forum to be sure. Any info you can share about the gun would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I am no expert but it looks just like my late 40’s K22 Masterpiece.

K-22 Masterpiece, likely serialized in 1948. Very possible shipment in 1949, but only a letter can tell you for sure.

Nice piece!

Does it have stocks? They should be diamond Magna style with the sharp shoulder.

Grips are marked with the same serial number as the gun. Could only post five photos on the forum.
