|This is a gem. The K-22 Masterpiece, a "K"
frame built on the square butt, eventually became
the Models 17 and 18 after 1957 - and this gun dates
back a ways before that as what might be called a
"pre K-22".. Not 100% - probably 95-98% - pretty
good. A delight to shoot.
The grips have medallion inserts but are smooth
- whereas the walnut checkered 'magna' grips were
the norm later on.
