I have a 6" Dan wesson model 17 i believe its close but i dont shoot it alot because of the ammo. If it was .22LR ide shoot it alot more.
The Model 17 is what you're looking for, IMO. They're in both 6" & 8-3/8" bbl lengths. I have both.............

Model 18 round butt

I found a model 18 that was modified to a round butt by a very skilled gunsmith. While it looks factory I dont believe they ever made one. Nice heft compared to the J frames and a great double action practice piece for my round butt N-frame.

Hey Gerald!
To my knowledge, the closest you can come to a 3" 22WMR Kit Gun is the Model 650:





Unfortunately, you would have to make due with fixed sights. I am happy to say I own one and it is the last revolver I will part with

I've seen a couple of the 650's but they're pretty rare in these parts, the 63 3" serves me pretty well at any rate but I get a bit tickled at the conclusions some folks jump to about the .22wmr in a pistol.

I have a 4" bbl 686+ and love it. I put $200 down and have ordered a 6" bbl 617, can't wait for that to come in to my LGS. It's been about 5 weeks and the wait is killing me! The word is that S&W factories are slowly catching up.
My wish list also includes a 617 with a 4" bbl and a 686+ with a 6" bbl. I just have to be patient.

Since we're including centerfires in this discussion, there is one I'd really like to see. That is a S&W version of the Charter Arms Bulldog, ie a 3", round butt, 5 shot, fixed sight K frame chambered in 44 Special.

Well, I hope my "conclusions" aren't the ones tickling you! The rifle cartridge in a pistol fad has always been a puzzlement to me.
Buy a revolver that uses a more expensive cartridge designed for a rifle. Uses the same size bullet, but is loaded with slower burning powder, why (?), to increase the mv in the longer barrel of a rifle. Well, duh! Powder that ends up being blown out the end of the shorter revolver barrel and set on fire. I know, because I've actually shot a .22 magnum revolver in the dark. A Colt Peacemaker with both cylinders. (Next time I'm going to take a picture! It's real purtty!)
Hey, I know, let's do this with a .30 Carbine cartridge! Oh, wait it's already been done. Why, I haven't the slightest idea? Now, you talk about HUGE fireballs blinding somebody!

Remember Smith also made the model 51 kit gun, although somewhat rare.
.22WMR, blue or nickel, 3 1/2" barrel, adj. sight.

After some careful consideration, I would like Smith and Wesson to bring back their early 22/32 heavy frame target, sometimes called the Bekeart Model. It hasn't been manufactured in over 70 years. Much lighter than the current K-17. When I see one at a gun show they just seem like a nice well balanced revolver with a longer barrel for a distinct purpose, putting holes in a target.

I would have a very difficult time not buying a 22 M&P (model 45), if ever I was lucky enough to locate one. It was called the Post Office model and was made as a trainer for the 38 M&P (model 10). I would sell what I had to for financing.

I chronoed the 22 magnum model 48's i've owned, and the velocity loss was dramatic....plus with the HUGE increase in the noise level, they were all soon gone and i don't miss them even one bit...
