    I scored this a few months ago for $200 out the door. It’s one sweet shooter!

    I have been told this is a clone or copy of the S&W Model 63 22lr. Is there any truth to that?

    Does anyone have one, what do you think of it? Here is a picture of mine.

    They look very similar. Never had a look @ the inner workings.

    OP
    Welcome to the Friendly Forum.
    It looks close. Shoot a couple boxes of shells thru it and tell us how it works.

    Howdy and welcome.

    Here's a picture of my Model 63 No-Dash..........except for the grips, they look about the same...........I too don't know about the internals.

    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a Ride! ~ Hunter S. Thompson

    Here's one I picked up last year. Thinking I paid 170.00. Couldn't walk away at that price. Only had it out once for about 20 rounds but it seemed like a decent shooter. Pictured along side my M-34.

    I have no direct experience, but when they were selling revolvers in the late 70's, the reviews were good. By the looks of what you have (and yours SilverAnn), at a price of $200 bucks, it would have gone home with me, no questions asked!

    Irv can fix them for me if I clog one up with WD40.

    I'd be happy to put your WD-40 boogered guns back in order, and for an old Pard like you I'd even ream every other chamber to .22magnum just to keep your life "interesting".
