    22 Long Rifle CTG

    I am trying to find out some information about a gun that my father left me. I know nothing about guns. It is a Smith and Wesson 22 Long Rifle CTG with a K serial #. Everything I can find on the internet seems to have different grips than this one. This some type of horns grips and the barrel is just over 5". As far as wear, I know he took excellent care of it, but it does show some signs of wear. Any information on it's worth would be appreciated.

    Rejoice and post a picture. Any K-22 is an admirable piece, and the grips are likely a bit of personalization by your dad.

    I'll make you a bet, if you measure from the front face of the cylinder to the muzzle end of the barrel you will find out it's 6". It's a K-22, probably a Model 17 or pre-17. Give us the serial number starting with the K and you can X out the last couple digits if you like and we can tell you exactly what it is and when it was shipped. If it is the K-22 in good mechanical condition with the wear you describe, it's about a $450 gun. Pictures would be a big help. Get back to us.

    If two us are exactly alike, one of us is unnecessary.

    Measure the barrel again, but this time go from the end to just where it meets up with the cylinder. Is it really 6 inches?

    Also, if you post the serial number (you can x out the last two digits. i.e. K124xx) someone here will be able to tell you when it shipped from the factory.

    Also. open the cylinder and in the crane area (below the start of the barrel) tell us what, if anything, is engraved there.

    Welcome to the forum. These threads are fantastic. It's like a little it of detective work. Did your father ever take you shooting?

    Let me ask, does it have a barrel length like this?

    Thanks for the feedback. I am not at my house right now, but when I get home I will take pics and get the serial #.

    Re: 22 Long Rifle CTG

    Okay...the barrel is 6" from the back of the chamber. I'm not sure but I think my father bought this new in the early 60's, however I could be wrong about the "new" or the "60's". I'm am pretty sure that this is the grip that came with the gun. The serial # is K720xx. In the crane area it has G7 on top and 86858 under that. Anything else just ask? Thanks

    That is a well used shooter K22 that you can treasure. While it's certainly not in NIB condition, it looks like a solid shooter. I think the value would be about $350. Enjoy useing it! It's value to you is.....priceless! Bob
