    My Smith 622

    Just picked this up.
    I've had the 422 blued version in the past that I let get away.
    This is the target model..adjustable rear sight/walnut checkered grips.
    Operates like glass and very accurate.
    This is the first stainless I've seen in person.
    Poor mans 41.
    Love it.20200512_194038.jpg

    The stainless was only made for 5-6 years and discontinued in 96.

    I have a 4 inch that I am sorry to admit I swapped a Colt New Frontier 22 for. I used it for a pocket fishing gun when I fly fished 3-4 nights a week. I had run into a raccoon that acted strange one evening and thought I would have to fight it off with a bamboo rod.
    Mine is a good shooter but once at the range the rear sight flew off because the number 4 screw in the sight sheared off ! I called S&W and they had just been sold the gent I was talking with said it was a known problem and that they had two of the screws left in stock, he asked my address and sent them to me free of charge. He said he hoped I would consider a S&W if I purchased another handgun.
    I now carry it during the trapping season. I should take it out back and shoot it a little.

    I bought my wife the very same pistol about 2 years ago. Its very accurate and has been trouble free so far. Seems to like a wide variety of factory ammo (so far). I actually got the original plastic tool with the pistol that helps with the disassembly/reassembly of the slide.

    22 auto pistols are fun to shoot, I have a Ruger Mark 1 I bought new in 1970, I can't even guess how many rds have gone through it. Just like a Timex takes a lickin & keeps on tickin....

    I had 6” SS but sold it. I’ve had several 422s target models. They are a very good pistol. I would rather have a 422 than new generation S&Ws. I’ve had them and they suck especially 22a. 422/ 4” is perfect loafing pistol. It’s light and slim and accurate. I keep a set of the black plastic grips from the field model to use on mine. I put the pretty wood grips aside to save them from getting beat up.9705C084-0672-4236-B54E-E3C1CE633CB4.jpeg

    Have a 2206. All stainless target. Very easy to attach a muffler if you are predisposed. Just buy a threaded barrel bushing and you are in business. Will eat anything. BTW they have gotten expensive.
