Default Which Kit Gun is Missing?

Hello

I've got four S&W so called Kit Guns:
- Model 34 .22, 6 shot, 2in, square butt,
- Model 317 .22, 8 shot, 3in, round butt,
- Model 63 .22, 6 shot, 4in, round butt,
- Model 631 .32H&R Mag, 6 shot, 4in, round butt.
It was never my intention to collect Kit Guns, I just like small guns. My biggest gun is a 2,5in Model 66.
I think S&W made more of those Kit Guns-models, so maybe I will collect a little after all. Can anyone list up what I have to look for in the future? Thank you from Norway.

Don't forget the .22 LR M43 and the .22 Magnum M51.

There was also a similar model 337. Don't think was refered to as a kit gun though.

Model 51 blued version, J-frame 22 magnum.
Model 650 which is a fixed-sighted 22 magnum J-frame, in stainless steel.

There are also, the 32 (S&W long ctg) group(s) of J-frames, which I believe hold considerable collector value.

Good Luck with the up and coming collection!

I-frames, don't forget the I-frames.

model 35 (6" barrel version of the 34) 22/32 heavy target AKA Bekeart. Both really tough to find. S&W should have made the older 6 shot 63 and the 51 in 6" Love those I and J frame 6" pieces.

Like these: the prewar Kit Guns were made from 1936-1940.
