    Yesterday I ended up with a S&W Model 17. Traveling so hard to post an image but here is what it seems to be:

    S&W Model 17 (no dash)
    Serial Number: k336897

    Curious as to the year of manufacture? The gun shows normal wear looks to have been well maintained. The lockup is very good from what I feel.

    An accurate .22 handgun is a lot of fun, I have a couple that I used to go out in the boonies and spend all day just wasting ammo.

    Yeah, thought it would be a nice change from the semi-auto flavors. :)

    I have a 1953 K-22 Masterpiece and a later model 617 (c. 1988) stainless K-22. Both are excellent revolvers and lots of fun to shoot.

    I had the gun out yesterday and what a pleasure to shoot not to mention accurate. I tried several flavors of ammunition with Eley Sport shooting the best. Then too, it was consistent. Anyway, I am real happy with this little revolver.

    What should one expect to pay for one of those?

    The asking price was $799 and I asked if there was any room. I ended up buying the gun for $700 plus tax. There is minor holster wear on the muzzle. Overall the gun is used but seems to have been well maintained. Shoots great and I am happy with it. I just didn't want to pass on it. :)
