Mine is a 617-1 4 inch bbl. It's an older six shot model, nice for carry and extremely accurate.

An older S&W 17 or 18 are my first choices. I do have a new 4" 617 that seems to be OK but D/A pull is a lot heavier than on older guns. Plan to install a Wolf standard power mainspring after break in. The 617 is smoothing up nicely tho.

I only have one .22 handgun, so take it for what it's worth... My Ruger GP100 has been a pleasure to own. I have had no issues after thousands of rounds. Truly an heirloom revolver. My wife and son are both all smiles when they shoot it. October 1st starts squirrel season and I'm looking forward to taking my first squirrel ever with a handgun. The gun is accurate enough that I will comfortably be taking up to ~25 yard shots with irons.

The Smith & Wesson K-22 is probably the best value. Either the Model 17-18 or the 617 are great choices.

The Colt OMM is also a great old revolver. There are still, nice, like new OMM revolvers out there. It may take a while to find them, but they are worth it.

The Korth is magnificent, but are out of financial reach for most shooters.

Thanks guys..
I do have an older Smith.. k-17 with a 8 3/8 Barrel.
Target hammer and trigger.
Six shooter.. it's almost like a rifle.
Just wishing it had came with a shorter Barrel.
I bought it from my neighbor years ago.
He had a presentation set.. consecutive serial numbers.
It still looks brand new.
My biggest problem is carrying it.
Holsters are pretty much non existing.
I have it in a old flap holster now.
Like the old west cowboy holsters.
It works, but not the best fit. I carry it cross draw.butt forward.
I've been thinking about? Maybe find a chest holster for it.?
Anyway, thanks for all the suggestions.

And that's a fact.
Yes...they are expensive.
Like I've mentioned, I do have an older target k-17..
But it's a 8 3/8 long Barrel.
Shoots like amazing.
Just wishing it was a little bit shorter.
Then again, it's what I have.
Probably should just get a custom chest holster made for it ?
Then it would probably work just fine.
( Thinking on it )
I wonder? How I always seem to wind up with the long Barrel pistols..
I also have the Ruger super single six that I bought in high school.
Hay money.
It got a nine inch barrel.
And I still have the magnum cylinder for it.

S&W 63, or a short barrel Ruger Single Six, with the .22 LR and .22 WMR cylinders.

Buckwheat, I've got a few wheelguns including a couple of rimfires. The 617-1 six shot is not as accurate as a Dan Wesson DW22. Both are a bit big if you are looking for a knock about carry gun. I have an SP101 in 32 mag and I would not hesitate to buy a Ruger Revolver. I think the GP 100 would be fine for a range gun or dedicated hunting handgun, but I think the SP101 will be more "handy" if you want something you can carry around while you are out for a walk. You don't need a big gun to get the most out of 22 LR. The charter arms 22 pathfinder is similar to the SP101 in size. A Browning Buckmark Camper will probably outshoot most revolvers, FYI. rc
