I would love to see a photo of that one, Big Larry. Also 8 3/8? I wish I'd taken some pictures of mine.

Nice to see, Big Larry. That very model (but without the target stocks), purchased in 1971 for $105, was my first handgun. Terrific shooter and a handsome firearm. Wrote a short story about it, in...

That's a beauty, no question, and they're not easy to find these days. My five-screw is a one-liner (1947), my birth-year gun. Excellent shooters--they don't call 'em Masterpieces for nothing.

So what's the deal, Nail? Did you score that 56 or not? The world is waiting.

Too much, I agree--but, if you're really intrigued, see if you can try it out. A lot of shooters say the full-lug in 6-inch is too heavy. I like it myself, but it'll wear on ya, for sure.

I own a 41 A-series and a K-22 one-liner (1947), and, for whatever reason, I shoot my 617 6-inch 10-shot better than both of them. It balances perfectly for me. The finest .22 revolver out there. ...

Speedo is right. It does hurt to see the cosmetic damage, but, really, that's minor. You have rescued a premium K22 one-liner with a LERK from any further depredations. Shoot it and revere it. If...

Great buy--great rifle, too, no question about it. Others (but not many) are out there, awaiting discovery by someone who knows what he's found.

Mine is standing in the corner right now . . .

Has to be my 617 6-inch 10-shot, as others have said. But I really enjoy my K22 one-liner (1947) just as much. I'm not quite as accurate with it, that's all.

That's intriguing, JWA. Scarce as they are, you have to wonder how many more 56 short-onlys may still be languishing in barns, closets, and attics because their owners can't imagine that anyone...

For having sat in a barn for 50 years, that 56 short looks to be in excellent condition--must have been a really dry storage barn. What a find! Would you mind disclosing, JWA, what it set you back?

The 10-shot clip for my 56 is nearly identical to the 5-shot, except that it lacks the Nov. 25, 1919 patent date. Come to think of it, though, it will accept a long round, so I guess it must not...

You're right, Alan, that's a 10-shot short magazine, original to the rifle. I had not realized it was at all unusual.

Very nice. Everyone loves the 18. Did you acquire it through purchase? If so, what did you have to exchange, in terms of paper, to be permitted to escort the beauty home?

The stainless barrel wasn't blued. Rather, it was painted black--although, as you can see, use has worn most of the paint away.
