What revolver would you like from S&W?



Log in to see fewer ads
Seriously - if S&W would make a new rimfire revolver, what would you like?

I thought I had found my Holy Grail revolver when I found this .22 WMR ANIB 4" 651. I like the better lockwork and larger gripframe of the 617 & 648 more - just not so fond of the full lug. It's been a while since S&W made the 648 - perhaps a new run is due. If so, it would be great if they could lose part of the lug - maybe add a chamber or two, too, to the 6-shot cylinder.



What would you like?

Stainz

PS Blame the recent 648 thread for my pipedreams! I'd likely be tickled pink to find a decent 4" 648!

How about a top-break, medium frame (sorta like a M1891) in 22 LR?

Next thing I want would be a M63 5" in 17M2.

OK then....howz about an octogon barreled, pistol gripped, pump action 22 LR S&W rifle? Color cased frame, of course!

Perhaps I'm getting carried away.

The revolver in your picture is what I lust after. I like the .22 mag. and I'd take a 4" mod 48 in a heartbeat if I could find one that I could afford. Maybe someday I'll get lucky and stumble on the one in the picture or a 4" 48.

I second the top-break idea.

My 6" 6 shot 617ND is perfect for a rimfire.
My 2 1/2" 66ND is perfect for IWB.
My 6" 6 shot 686ND is perfect for the range.
My 8 3/8" 629-1 is almost perfect for woods carry it just needs a full lug, but is the most accurate handgun I've ever shot so I will keep it.
S&W has allready made evey revolver that meets my needs. Every revolver I own no matter who made it is stainless steel and 6 shot.

Yup, a re-reissue of the Model 3 or Schofield

I would like the 617 in a 6" barrel without the full lug and no internal lock. Since I am "wishing", I would also like no MIM parts.

Its time for them to bring back a steel frame snub nose 22lr ala the models 34/63/317.
I would prefer a stainless 63 snubbie but any steel frame variation would be welcome.

Great minds must think alike! LOL.

EXACTLY what initially came into my mind. A 6" K-22 in stainless.
They DID build a handful of basically 6" K-22's, sq butt frame,in SS back in the 1990's. I think 200 or less. The Factory also built a HB M-18 in stainless. Then brought out the seris with the oVERLY HEAVY full underlug barrels...Bah.

A 3" M-63 would be nice as well. But a 5" would be nice too...like the old M-35's but a handier 5" barrel.

As much as I poke fun at the "Hilliary Hole", "oil hole" and generally disdain the LOK.
The new Smiths are now being built with the best alloy and to as strong a design as possible. I've been looking at a few of the newer Kit Guns but have enough older ones that I REALLY shouldn't spend the money.

Like the Ahrends on your gun gmd1951. About perfect for a rd butt J frame.

Hey, I've got the 5" & 3" 63 as well as the 4" 651. Here is my J-frame 'family portrait', all sporting the '60 Pro' grips:



What I want is a K-frame partial lug .22 WMR. A bigger 651 - with better lockwork. A bit behind that would be a current production (X8 cylinder) 2" or 4" 63. But, as said, the current 3" 63 is my favorite of what I have now, probably because I have ten times as much .22LR ammo as I have .22 WMR ammo in my 'stash'. Pipedreams...

Stainz

PS I still love my X10 4" 617... it's so smooth - but heavy and 'clunky' - especially next to the 3" 63.

PPS I really like the '60 Pro' grip look/feel (Obviously!)... but I love the price - $43 + s/h from S&W!

Likely not feasible but I'd love a .22wmr version of my 63 3", loud and obnoxious likely but a dandy little trail gun it would make. The added heft of the 63 wouldn't bother me a bit.

Back in the 90's Smith did make a 3" heavy barrel in .22 WMR, but a non adjustable sight model. ONLY modern Kit Gun I'm lacking. They have been going for insane prices the past few years.

I'd like to find an 8 3/8 model 48 to match the 4 and 6" I've got! They belonged to my Dad and he passed this last June and always wanted to own all three lengths that they came in! Last one I found was $1000 NIB. Couldn't swing it and the Kiimber 82 I bought that day As it is now, I shoulda bought the Smith and left the Kimber where it was...
