WTT S & W K-22 Masterpiece 1950 - $1 (Waddell)

Posted on: 01/12/18



I’d like to test the waters on potential trades for my very nice S&W K-22 Masterpiece, aka pre-Model 17 6” 22LR 6 shot revolver. If nothing comes of it, that’s fine, I’ll likely regret sending it along anyway. The package includes the gun with the original numbered to the gun Diamond Magna grips, an intact but somewhat worn gold box, the “Helpful Hints” pamphlet, and a factory letter identifying the ship date as December 12, 1950 (to New York City of all places). No tools or cleaning stuff, sorry, I never had them. The gun is in superb mechanical condition, with a sweet single action break. There is some mild holster wear on the muzzle, and some tiny marks in the finish above the grip on the right sideplate (see pic). Otherwise it’s a beautifully cared for 60+ year old specimen of Smith’s finest work. I’ll say the trade value is around $1000, give or take. I’d like a relatively even trade, mostly I don’t want to part with much if any cash myself. Things I’m looking for: Interesting older S&W revolvers; N-frame .38s, N-frame .45 ACPs, S&W Performance Center Guns; revolvers in .357 or .45ACP or 9mm semis CZ Custom Shop 9mm guns Browning Hi Power Late 3rd gen Smith 9mm semi with melonite finish Something else in this ballpark, try me. I’m in the far west valley, Cabela’s works for me. Normal AZ DL/CCW routine.
