# K 258577. From 1955 or 1956. Has a target hammer and walnut target stocks with no relief cut.
Best thing, it is the scarcer heavy bbl. 5 screw. Maybe the last of the 5 screws.
Also, the revolver has the bright finish. Maybe special order or just made when they resumed the high polish revolvers.
The revolver is on the way and won't have it until next week.
Anyone have a close number to pin down the shipping date? Thanks, Big Larry

I cannot take pictures of that quality, but my buddy can. He is going to be my photographer in the future. Thanks, Big Larry

Are the K22's and Combat Magnums numbered in the same series, or did the Combat Magnums have their own bloc starting with 260,000. I think the book says they had their own bloc.
I have a Combat Magnum # K 262336 shipped 7-20-56.
So, what I have is one of the last 5 screw K22's? Thanks, Big Larry

All the target revolvers were numbered in the same K sequence.

K Serial Prefix by Year, Postwar Models: 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 48, 53, 66, 67, 68 and their Pre-model variations.

Note all K prefix frames are normally target frame revolvers.

Year of introduction (not serial range)
1946 K101-K614 Introduction of pre Model-17
1947 K615-K18731 Introduction of pre M-14 & pre M-16
1948 K18732-K73121 Introduction of pre M-15 & pre M-18

(SCSW, 4th Ed, Page 488).
