For me it's a tie between 6" 17, and 4" 66.

Favorite "K" frame? We're talking pre model number?

S&W K22
S&W K38 combat masterpiece
S&W K38 masterpiece target

These three are to me the finest old school s&w revolvers.
The actions are a tad better over what I have seen. But these were built by the s&w old world craftsmanship.

The word perfection was invented by Webster for these three s&w classic revolvers.

My 2 1/2 inch 66 and 19 are my favorites. My 17s seem to get shot the most though as ammo cost is cheap and good trainers for the centerfire cousins.

Sadly, .22 and 'cheap' don't quite fit any more...

#1 is my 547... next is M53, then my M10 in .357, and finally my Dayton 4" M14.

Because, I'm an engineer and like goofy things.

Here's one I picked up in '11 or '12. It was presented as LNIB, but the box was for a blued gun and appeared fake to me. After discussing it with the seller for a while, he agreed to a significantly lower price and I bought it. I ultimately determined that the box was fake and destroyed it. I think this nickel 19 is 1980 production. It does not appear to have been used much.

I'm not sure...one of these I think (today anyway). A 1989 shipped 17-6 or a 1972 shipped 67.

5 inch M&P. Just picked up a nickel one from the early 50ties. I guess it might be because the first centerfire revolver I handled was this one back in the 50ties. Just looks and feels right. The 4 in M12 comes in second.

K22 with 8 3/8" barrel. Bought new in 1979 and is as accurate as the USAF Win52D which I used in the 60's. Well.... Almost as accurate.
Out of the box the SA trigger defines crisp.

My favorite K Frame (currently) is a Performance Center 66-4.

However, my end-all-be-all "K" will always be my Dad's 66-1:

My favorite, a pristine 15-3 I bought unfired from an estate, no longer lives here. I couldn't see making my son and his three boys wait till I croak, and gave it to them. They shoot it often with great pleasure. A master smith gave it the most wonderful trigger I've ever encountered on any firearm, ever.

My present favorite is the 4" standard-barrel 10-5 that stays in the head of my bed in case of goblins and miscreants. Not pretty--the previous owner coated it with something like Duracoat, and I bought it for knocking around the woods in bad weather. Now I can't do that anymore, but it's very serviceable. And hey, it's a Model 10, something everyone needs to own.

I'm becoming more and more a fan of my 13-4 with a three inch barrel. Not sure why. It just seems to be growing on me.

That's tough. I've got 19s in all barrel lengths but the legendary 3". But I'd have to say my pre-18 is my favorite.

I have always had a soft spot for the M&P family of K-frames but my favorite has to go to the M65 I gave Dad back in the 90's. We are coming up on the first anniversary of his passing next month. I will have to pull it out of the safe and take it to the range.

Those Rogers grips are tits that I love to handle, they are worn by the three nickeled model 10's that guard the homestead , I collect Rogers and love'em.

Almost invariably, it's the last one I bought . So, right now it's a Model 10 snub, soon it may be a Model 13 or 19, 66, 65; I'm sure you catch my drift....

Whew!!!!!!!!!!! I've got 4 but out of them I'd have to pick the 66-1 4"-probably the perfect revolver. (and I've got a bunch)
On second thought-I'll say the perfect centerfire revolver would be my 681.
Damnit!!! Nevermind-they're all pretty darn good.

I have several K-frames, but for some reason I am drawn to this simple but effective model 10-6. It is a shooter grade that works and works well. What's not to like?

My favorite K-frame is my Model 616, the gun S&W should have built but never did. I had to build my own because I wanted a K-frame in 32 and they were just too hard to find. Any target sighted K-frame 32 would have been fine, but since I had to build my own, I went for it all. I like my '40s vintage K-22 and K-38, and if I could find a matching K-32 I could buy without selling about everything I own, I'd add that, but for now I'll just have to settle for this as my favorite...

Man, why do you have to ask such a tough question? I really like my post war/pre-10's, the K-22's, 15's and 19's. Just to make it easy for me I'll throw in something bordering on unique. A matte blue 19-5, 2 1/2" with a very short production run. It letters as shipped to the U.S. State Department and I posted it a couple years ago when I found it. Actually it found me. The matte finish is what prompted me to get the letter.

I think at present it would have to be my 67 no-dash. But in the future it may be my 64-2, when I can shoot it as well as the 67.

I skimmed down the list, thought rim fires might be banned until I saw Iggy's post. I like my old 22 Masterpiece, followed by my 4" Nickle 19. But then I've always thought Mae West was about right so I really prefer my N-Frame.

Do you think if I had the BBL relined to .22 and a blank cylinder drilled that I might get 20-25 rounds out of it?

Thumbs up Gotta Luv the K Frames

Well I have 3 K frames my most recent a chromed Model 10 with the thin barrel beautiful gun. My 2 is a Model 66 no dash 4 inch barrel all stainless including the front & rear sights this one is my favorite .357. Last my oldest K frame My Model 17 6 inch barrel .22LR very accurate and absolute beautiful gun. Traded a 6 inch barreled Model 19 straight across for it. Felt so bad years later got the Model 66 had been wanting a 4 inch barreled .357 anyway. So I really like my collection of K frames my next is going to be a 19/66 2.5 barrel or a 13/65 3 inch barrel round butt or I would also be happy with a Model 10 with a 3 inch barrel. K frames to me is the best size of S&W's

My Model 18 is my second favorite. If it were not for the sentimental value of my M65 the 18 would be at the top.

Model 10 . Everything you need and nothing you don't. Prettiest revolver on the planet. I dream about it sometimes.

I had to divide this into Centerfire and Rimfire...

For a centerfire it would be a 3" 66...





This one also has an extra cylinder for my favorite semi-auto pistol round... .38 Super....this with Supers...





For rimfire it is a tossup between a 4" 48 and a 6" 53 both with extra Long Rifle cylinders...





Some previous owner put in a Combat wide trigger and 1950s hammer...

This is a first year of production 53 with extra rimfire cylinder...have had it since 1974...





It was my only .22 until I started teaching shooting in the early 1990s...

The difference is slight but there.
I know this is an old thread, but I'm new to the forum page and I see so many great threads I missed out on! The only K frame I have so far is a blued, snub Model 15. I really love snub and 4" barrel 19's and snub 10's, but my 15 is in superb shape and it is exquisite! I have been shooting guns since I was about 6 or 7, got my first gun at 10 years old, and I had never liked revolvers my whole life. I used to listen to the hype of low capacity, harder to reload jive, but in the last year or so, I have watches many westerns and film noirs and detective/mobster TV shows and movies and for some reason, revolvers not only grew on me, but have also become my favorite type of gun. Bought an 1873 replica single action 45 long colt and it was done Hill from there. I have 4 snub DA wheel guns now, 2 Taurus (617 and 605) which I do love, but I have always been an old school kind of guy and guns are no different. I have my blued Model 15-3 and a 36 no dash in nickel. I want so many of them! Point of my story is since acquiring my 15, I have grown to feel that in my opinion, that is the most beautiful handgun in the world. A little hard to conceal, but it makes a great house piece while my 36 is my travel buddy. Love them both dearly. Now I want about 15 S&W's and about 6 or 7 Colts. My last 4 guns have been revolvers and I have no plans on buying another semi-auto until I fill out my collection of Smiths and Colts first.

I made the mistake of letting a Model 13 3 inch slip past me a few months ago. I didn't have any Smiths yet and wanted to put my money towards a different model and I got a 15-3 snub blued and 36 nickel no dash and I was right when I said I'd be kicking myself in the rear one day, my foot is still swingin.

An M13 3" is something of a grail gun. I let one go years ago to get a Ruger SP101...I need to kick myself again...

It's the smoother actions of the older k frames.
