Last week I acquired a S&W Model 17-3 .22 caliber revolver, Serial numbers 18K4676 and 73135A8. Six inch barrel. It has a wide trigger and hammer with a sizeable walnut grip.
Can anyone tell me when it was made, which serial number is the right one and anything about this beautiful pistol.
In the 1950's when I was in the Navy I owned a S&W K22 Masterpiece which was a joy to shoot.
